Walked 18 at the Refuge yesterday for the first time in several weeks. The fairway grass has really thinned out in some places. More glaringly, some of the bunkers have washed out all the way down to the drains. A little maintenance would go a long way.

Public golf in the Jackson area is spotty at best, so I was pleasantly surprised by the Refuge. It's a stern test of skill, particularly off the tee: the fairways are very narrow, and the rough is no joke. Water comes into play several times.

Conditions were very good when we played. Two or three greens were beaten up along the edges, but in the summertime in Mississippi, that's going to happen. In each case, the grounds crew had put up little placards acknowledging the problem, and they'd clearly gotten to work on the situation. So you can't fault them for that.

The course is moderately undulating in spots, but mostly is pretty flat. Temperature permitting, it is definitely walkable.
