Played on beautiful day, Pro was very friendly ( sometimes private clubs are standoffish ), wonderful water views especially on 3, some blind drives ( make sure people are gone ahead of you ), small but nice greens, course knowledge on 11 and 17 ( pay attention ), fun day
poor back 9 design
I enjoyed the front 9. Greens were fair but not overly fast. When we made the turn, things got unpleasant. The 10th hole demands a draw. If you cant draw the ball, you must start your tee shot over a river bed, or risk going into a bunker at best or out of bounds right. The second hole. Is a short par 4. If you dont hit the right hand half of a narrow fairway, you have to try to draw a short iron around the trees to get to a narrow multi-tiered green. The 17th hole is a ridiculous v shaped par 4. The green is almost behind the tee. Overall, this is a private course with member for a day privileges, but they wont entice many members with this layout. Tough is one thing, gimicks are another.
