Very poor greens

When I played this course in 2012 I was stunned by its beauty and the incredible views, but really disappointed by the slow and uneven greens.
Four years later , things have not changed,. It is extremely difficult to judge the line and pace on these greens. Balls hit online can veer off quickly by hitting a bump or can come up short or go well past the hole when applying the same amount of effort. Making a putt on these green is like playing the lottery- hit and hope.
It is a shame that I cannot recommend this golf course to anyone who takes pride in their putting. These run at about a 7 on the stimp meter..
To be fair to this course, the fairways are very good, the sand traps are well manicured and you will enjoy the awesome surroundings.
