Diamonds from the Rough

A great piece of parkland that traverses a lot of ground


Drives need to twice contend with trees in the middle of fairways


The no. 5-6-7 trifecta will test your strength, finesse and thinking cap


Better make it to the 1st hole’s elevated green or risk rolling down into oblivion


Tree trouble awaits you on two holes if you hit your tee shot right down the middle


Greenside bunkers on No. 2 aren’t exactly greenside – you’ll need a lot of carry from your sand wedge


Consecutive par 3s on the back 9, but the second features as nasty a redan green as you’ll face all year


Back a bit monotonous until the crescendo and climax of the last three holes


The par 5 7th and 17th holes are worth the price of admission alone


Bring a compass to the par 5 7th, a brute, with blind shots, water and hills


Blue whales could fit comfortably on some of these greens


More holes call for a draw than a cut from the tee
