4.0 out of
There is a lot to like about this course, but it falls just a bit short of five stars. I like the Bermuda fairways which hold up well in the summer heat, but don't like the Bermuda rough and its annoying tendency to swallow golf balls. I like the links-style layout but don't like how the grass on the mounds in the fairways can often die out because it's hard to mow them properly. I like the complimentary grass practice range. I like the fact that the starter moved my twosome up ahead of a foursome so that we had a sub-4:00 round. I like the twilight time greens fee and the fact that twilight starts at 3pm (and they let us tee off at 2:45). I like the absence of houses (except a few across a water hazard from the 8th and 12th fairways). I like the variety of holes and the contours of the greens - challenging but not crazy, except maybe for 18.
Somehow it doesn't quite add up to five stars, but as I said, there's a lot to like.
