Jackson’s Chase – 04/06/2009

Jackson’s Chase at Pine Hills Front Royal, VA – 4/6/2009
Amid April showers and lingering March winds, we tackled Jackson’s Chase this week. The course (not unlike others in the Shenandoah Valley) are experiencing financial hardships this season. Aside from a few indications of saving dollars on maintenance, the course was in good shape. Now that houses have been built between the two nines the course takes on a very different look. Previously the front nine was a links style layout with open spaces and flattish greens. The back nine is considerably harder with greens that tilt like Augusta National. Almost every hole on the inward side have some quirky trick, seemingly making up for the straightforwardness of the outbound nine. The tenth hole should be totally reworked since the hazards are too severe and concealed. This should not discourage you from playing the course. It is a particularly good value with the Waggle Golf Pass, so make it a stop on your ‘valley tour’. Ayce
