Diamonds from the Rough

Greens are hilly and often multi-tiered


Blue and white tees frequently co-habitate


Fairways have their pasture moments, but greens are lovely


Both nines open with a pair of comfy holes before the treachery begins


Starts off a little hardscrabble, but the layout quickly gets nice as it heads out into the country


Exert care on your approach to the seemingly open par 5 6th – mounding short right of the green can easily pinball you to weedy oblivion.


Some weird routing due to railroad tracks bisecting the course – in case you wondered, trains have the right of way


Game of ski-ball on the house if you pull your approach shot slightly from the fairway on No. 3


There should be a hard hat dispenser at the beginning of the 18th fairway


570-yard Par 5 14th hole colossus ends on a postage-stamp green


Golf has been played on this land for three separate centuries


Splitting the traps on No. 4 requires a nervy little chip
