This legendary course tics off a bucket list for sure. The 1st course on the island, opened 1964. RTJ Sr. had some fun here...and you will too! Rees added bunkers in an "upgrade" around 2007 and now there are 99 of them. But ocean views from somewhere on every hole, elevated greens, and for me...forward tees that actually help, make it a course I want to play again and again.
