Course Description:

Located in the rural Strada region of Romania Lac de Verde is a par 71 playing at over 7000 yards with narrow fairways and firm greens that is a real test for any golfer, particular if the wind happens to be blowing strongly.

Yet another fine course plagued by the nonsense I've come to expect from extra firmness.

I shake my head and am beginning to sound like a broken record when it comes to these extra firm courses. It is so hard to execute these types of courses, I feel bad when I downgrade a course from tour worthy to approved because you just can't get the ball to stop on the green because it isn't set up properly. HB really dropped the ball by denying players the ability to impart backspin to help counteract it.

Anyhoo, this course really was well designed, nicely carved fairways and and some very appealing green design. The course had very nice visuals, brightly lit, and no annoying shadows obscuring the holes. And despite my frustration watching approach after approach bounce crazily off of the back, I still enjoyed my round.

The designer did make some efforts to help make the course playable, implementing long greens w flags towards the back to allow for a bounce and roll-up. But too often I was faced with a very long iron approach, or a green with no landing area because a hazard was right in front of the pin. I just think in fairness, GIR needs to be able to be achieved. I understand that you shouldn't always be able to make birdie on each hole, but you should still have an opportunity, even if it means facing a 20+ foot putt, just as long as the ball can be settled on the putting surface somewhere, that's all I ask.
