When the new owner first arrived there were issues, but we now have a first-rate superintendent, Brent Schilhab, and the membership is happy. Everyone loves our pro, Ricky Lyons (we miss Paul Marchand but Ricky is a worthy successor). And Clabron Johnson is the undisputed best locker room manager in maybe the world. The club is in a good place right now.
I played Black Hawk a couple of weeks ago and it’s in great shape except for the bunkers due to hurricane. Both courses are Rees Jones designs but very different. SH is a classic design with small-ish elevated greens. Lots of big pecan trees. Black Hawk has fewer trees, larger greens, and lots of mounding. More links-like. Water in play on most holes.

It's so strange to me that people are reticent to talk about things like this. It's a robotic, mechanical type calculation—you are eventually coming up with a price-per-round number, and then you can gauge whether or not the cost + benefits are worthwhile to you.
I don't give a sh*t if the club is a zillionaire's hangout or just a ruse to snag $300/month from old farts who live nearby. I just care if the whole thing works for me (relative to what I'm doing now).
