Golf course wise, this is what a private club should provide.
Choose wisely from the five tee boxes or you'll have some lengthy par-3's etc. Same goes for some of the dogleg holes. You don't want to hit your normal drive and be short of the turn or you'll likely have no shot at a normal par. Yardage ranges from 5614 to 7302 yards. And don't forget to take the slope rating into consideration as well.
Plan ahead -- the course layout is different in that you do not come back to the clubhouse at the turn. So make sure you have any snacks, etc. as applicable. There are nice restrooms on the course and an ample number of water coolers. I strongly suggest you get one of the styrofoam cups with lid and straw from the water station near where the carts are staged and fill it with ice/water before you start your round. This comes in very handy for plentiful, refreshing refills.
Everything about the course was in excellent shape -- fairways, hazards, greens, etc. Do try to keep it in the short grass though as the natural areas of rough apparently feed on golf balls.
The bunkers had really good sand. Note that some of them are not actually greenside. There are times when it just looks like it because of the rolling elevation, etc. They're tricking your eyes; Nicklaus is just messing with you.
There are some great water features -- very natural feeling for sure.
They have large, bentgrass greens. This grass is not nearly as common around these parts so that was something a little different, but not by much. They were in immaculate shape, nothing too crazy on undulation, ran a little quicker than most, and rolled extremely true.
One other little thing I noticed is that they use the green colored sand for filling in divots. It may or may not be mixed with some fertilizer, soil, and/or seed. I think I've only seen this on maybe one or two other courses in the last 10 years. I don't know why courses don't use it. Regardless of any other benefits, I find that it takes away from the ugly normal sanded scars out in the fairway. The green stuff is just more pleasing to the eye -- may even help remove a bad thought or two from your pre-shot routine if you're not thinking about hitting it fat, etc.
