We had the unique opportunity to play Cougar Point during tropical storm Bonnie and as you could imagine we had the course to ourselves. I will say that the course handling the water in amazong fashion. Other than a couple of spots on the greens late in the round this course took the 2-3 inches of rain like a champ. As for the course itself, last time we played it was in the 90's when it was Marsh Point and the changes to the course are fantastic. There are a lot more houses on the course now but they are well hidden by the trees and brush along the course. The one thing to be away of though is the vast amount of OB on the course, I felt like there were white stakes everywhere on this course which obviously changed my thought process playing this course and took the driver out of my hands more than once. The course conditions were A- to B+ with the draw back being some damage to a few of the greens but the tee boxes and fairways were perfect. The price, which I understand is the standard non-Ocean Course pricing for the island, is a little high for this course considering it's more than we are going to pay to say as we trek down to HHi to play Harbour Town but the experience, even playing it in a tropical storm, was a lot of fun.
