Using the all the right tools to make a tough but fair courseReviewed by: James Moon on 5/20/2015
Its amazing how good everyone is getting at building courses, this here was an example of a designer listening to feedback and discussions on course design, and implementing them into a stern but reasonable test.
To sum it all up, you had useful planting, man made water hazards in relevant locations, diagonally oriented fairways, good distances making you use mid-long irons instead of just plopping in short irons and wedges, and green contours that defended the flag and required careful concentration on approaches.
The best feature was what someone referred to as a "bay green," where the drive was sent out wide to a fairway, and then a long carry back to the green, forcing the issue of longer approaches. Very nicely done here.
The courses beauty was intrinsic, not requiring any ornamental planting to make it look sharp. It was just very clean and crisp, and didn't draw your focus away when trying to contend with the difficult shots ahead of you.
This course is primed and ready to host an event.
