We played the Lakes course the 7th of July. We got out early to skip the rush and played without running into any traffic. We did get overtaken by two guys that were anxious to play through. They didn't hit that well but their energy made up for the miss-hits. All of the greens were soft and playable. They rolled fast with the exception of those recently watered. The Lake course is ok, it has water around, the fairways and tee boxes are well maintained and we felt that we got our monies worth on the round. In the service industry on any given day you may encounter poor service but at Queenstown on that day, we had excellent service from everyone we met. From the counter guys checking us to the starters that covered the rules of play to the food service staff in the clubhouse. I've played at Queenstown before but generally during a tournament so playing in a smaller group gave me an opportunity to experience Queenstown in more natural setting. Queenstown for me is an almost 60 minute drive but I'd play it again.
