I decided to play the course that my granddaughter Madison practices on for her golf team. Silver Lake is a family built nine (9) hole links layout that dates to 1943 and plays 2,946 yds / 34.9 / 125 Par 36 track.
The course sits on a nice rolling layout with good separation between the mostly dogleg fairways that add a challenge to the shorter yardage layout. The biggest defense this course has is it's smaller sized (15-20yd across) typical shaped and tipped greens with slight breaks. Standard yardage blocks (100 - 200yds) located in the center of fairways but no Par 3 yardage blocks on the two (2) holes (195yd and 136yd) that would have helped. They have double greens for 18 hole players on #3 and #7 that makes the hole layout more of a difficult dogleg with the same yardage.
I paired up with a long time member, Terry, who has seen the ups and downs of this 2nd generation family owned and now non-player family keeping conditions the best they can. Great course for youths/seniors that want to walk and work on hitting good conditioned smaller greens for $10/9 or $13/18 with a few traps and couple water holes.
Ended up shooting 39 w/16putts and enjoyed working on short iron shots to the good holding greens today.
