Played Rock Spring on Sat., Feb. 20, & the gates were STILL closed. :roll: Most of the Christmas decorations were gone, but we still had to park at the tennis courts. The course played great, & we certainly still had a good time........ :mrgreen:

just finished a round there with emoney, and yes, the gates are still closed. (?? WTF Alton?)

someone knocked over the porta-john that's there by the tennis court parking too, so if you gotta drop a deuce, hit the walgreens or CVS up the street beforehand
Are YOU the d-bag who swiped all four of the putters I left at White Birch?

Believe it or not, they are taking the Xmas decorations down faster than usual. In the past they had no reason to take the decorations down in a timly manner, but now we have the DG in there and they are gettin better. The park was rarely used (if ever) untill DG. If they get um down and cleared out before April, that would be a feat.

I agree, it does seem to be happening quicker than last year. My only question is---- Why not open the gates & let people into the park????? There is NO good reason to keep the gates locked!!! At night, sure, but open them during the day........

Are long tees marked on every hole? I could only find a few, figuring they're hidden by leaves and crap. Will shorts or longs be used in the SLO? The longs make a lot of difference on more than a couple of holes.

Great course. A work out in multiple ways.

Going to play there now. Oh, It's Rock Spring, not Springs. Rookie mistake. :D
