Fun and Fair!

I really enjoyed my round on the Weiskopf course. It was one of the best rounds I have shot in a long time. I was -1 heading onto the 18th tee and crumbled under the pressure of par. Even though I finished with a 73, I couldn't have been happier with my experience. The layout was fun and had some interesting designs. The first hole with the creek in the middle was a great way to start. The par 5 10th is also a great way to start the backside! Highly recommend this course if you are able to play as it is very fun and it was in great shape.

Fun and fair resort-style course

Full disclosure: I only got to play the front nine and drive most of the holes of the back nine. From what I played and saw, Weiskopf did a good job with what he was handed. As the last of the private courses operating out of the private clubhouse at PGA West, Weiskopf was given the least dramatic site. Most of the holes run through the neighborhood and sit far from the rocky mountains that make the back nine of the Palmer Private course so dramatic. Interestingly, the first hole might be the toughest on the course. A creek splits the fairway, meaning you've got to be at your most accurate best right out of the gate. Since the Weiskopf is the furthest away from the recently renovated clubhouse, make sure you've got everything you need before heading out onto the course. Make sure to save time for lunch or drinks after ward. It's not often you'll get the chance to live like the members do at PGA West.
