Have played this course several times, but only made the mistake of walking it once. I golfed with a 70 something retiree who walked it two to three times a week, so thought,"What the heck! If he can do it so can I!" Big mistake! It's very long and like several of the courses I've since played here in Fla., holes and subsequent Tee boxes are really far apart....it almost feels like you should have hired a Sherpa guide! The course itself is quite chanllenging with undulating greens and some pretty tough water hazards. I really don't recommend it for beginners!
