Played here for the first time. I am a former low handicap player. This is an interesting layout, but much too difficult for the average golfer. As expected, Pete Dye's layout here leaves you begging for your driver to be long and accurate. If so, reasonable iron lengths to the somewhat large green, but incredibly undulating and sloped greens, coupled with difficult pin placements can easily lead to a long day of frustration. Whoever set the pins on this play date must have had a fight with his/her significant other the night before. The practice facilities are in very fair condition. It seems clear that this course was probably in great shape when it was first created, but has fallen on difficult times and it shows in its maintenance. Dye would probably cringe if he saw it the way it is now. Despite all of this, at $49 after 3 pm on a Saturday, it is a very good test for the better golfer. If you are a 15-20 handicap or lower, you can get yourself around the course as long as you can drive the ball decently. Anything more, and you will be punished by this layout. The GPS system in the carts was appreciated, but the distances it gave contradicted fairway markers and tee box distance markers.
