Every year, my extended family travels to Fort Morgan and rents a beach house. The women chill on the beach, and the men explore local golf courses. Throughout the years, this has become the epitome of a love/hate relationship for me.
I give this course five stars because of the layout, the setting, and overall enjoyability of playing it. That being said, if you struggle with consistency and distance, this course will eat your frickin lunch. Not a great course to bring a beginner on unless he's drunk and doesn't care what his score is or how many balls he loses.
Between the water, bunkers every 15 feet, and the super aggravating protected sand dune ecosystems throughout the course, not one hole fails to offer even the most experienced player a challenge. The greens are tough and unpredictable. The winds mess with your mind. In June it's hotter than the Sahara because there are no trees and the sand reflects the sun in your face.
The clubhouse is nice, and the people are friendly. Of course, I'm writing this while sitting in my office at work, so they could have beaten me with club shafts and I'd still rather be there than here.
Bring a lot of balls, a lot of water, and a lot of prayers.
