So I'm a bit biased since my dad's a member here and I've played it more than any other course, but it really is a fantastic course. The front nine lulls you into a false sense of security since it doesn't have a par-5, but it's no pushover, with some long par 4s and a blind par 3 up a hill. The back nine is one of the toughest challenges around, with some serious elevation change and the over-water par-3.

The course is always in excellent shape, greens roll nicely, fairways are well kept up, and it's an interesting layout. It's walkable if you're in good shape. All in all a standout course and a great golfing experience.
