Starting to regain it''s form
About a couple years ago, this course was an absolute mess. The greens were like sandtraps and the fairway was dried out. Ever since TDC got a new superintendent, the course is starting to regain its championship form from several years ago. Now, the greens are in really good condition. They run at a moderate pace, but hold shots beautifully. The fairways are nice and I feel like players get a little extra roll off of them.
The layout is pretty standard with a few doglegs, and several water holes. A few of the notable holes are 4, 9, 11, 15, and 18.
The fourth is a long par five (560 yards) that requires three good swings. The hole is somewhat narrow and has a tree that blocks off almost any attempts towards the greens. The large green complex is guarded by two of the deepest bunkers on the course. Anything long over the green is flirting with heavy rough.
The ninth is a picturesque par three that plays over the Wyndham Lake. The 9th and 18th greens are combined, which makes the green complex odd and somewhat difficult to hit.
The eleventh is a short par three played over water. Nothing crazy special about the hole, but it is very birdie-able, as most players will be hitting a short iron.
The fifteenth is a great risk/reward par five. It is very short (probably about 280-300 yards) and is played over water. It is gettable for a long hitter, in fact, my playing partner knocked it on the fringe. The hole requires around a 250-260 yard carry to clear the water. The hole is a dogleg right and if one decides not to go for it they have to lay up and avoid the several fairway bunkers that block the fairway.
The eighteenth is an ideal finishing hole. It is a reachable par five (530 yards) and it winds around the Wyndham Lake, fully exposing it again. Players must carry the lake on their second shot, whether they are laying up or going for the green. Like I said earlier, the 18th and 9th greens are combined which creates an extremely large and odd shaped putting surface.
The practice facilities at TDC are very good. They have a putting green, two chipping greens (one next to the putting green, and one next to the driving range), and a driving range that is big enough to accommodate all players.
Highly recommend trying Dominion if you get the chance. It is located near Short Pump Town Center and it is in a nice neighborhood.
