I ended up on the Gold course which was ok. Ritz maintenance and management is a good thing for the most part. I thought the traps needed a fill and to be dragged in the morning, so that was my only real complaint. The club house staff was definatly up to Ritz Carleton standards. They had aerrated about 2 weeks ago, so the greens were dog slow and weren't breaking as much as I was reading, which was in stark contrast to the putting green. I don't regularly play golf in Florida, so the wind took some getting used to. Even when the tree tops aren't showing much wind, there is plenty of wind in play. I was coming up 2 clubs short all through the front 9, until I adjusted.
I have to say, this is the second Norman design I have played and I am not a fan of his work so far. There wasn't a single memorable hole on the Gold course at Tiburon. Other than 3-4 really stunning holes at Mayakoba, there was nothing memorable about that place either. I would guess that if Mayakoba wasn't right on the ocean, there would be nothing to remember about it either.
