This course has been rated the 33rd most difficult in the U.S. by ESPN. If that is the case, I'd hate to play the top 32! Long course with only 2-3 holes I would classify as easy. Narrow fairways, rolling hills, deep difficult bunkers, it all adds up to a tough day on the course. However, it is more than worth it. There aren't too many more beautiful courses that I have seen, and I've played a lot. It's rarely ever busy here, which makes standing on the tee box on #6 and looking back at the rest of the course even more amazing. A couple of my favorites were #8, a downhill curving hole coming back towards the highway that is reachable with a well-placed tee shot and a long iron, and #12, with the tee shot over a pond and a long narrow entryway to a well-gaurded green in the trees. Highly recommended. It's not the score that counts here, but the enjoyment of a beautiful day on the links.
