Diamonds from the Rough

Picturesque in autumn


The front 9 giveth and the back taketh away


Greens are medium-speed and very well cared for


Interior OB stakes add a level of treachery to two short holes


Be careful not to try to outsmart the course; its doglegs will turn such strategy to folly


Nice routing, up and down through the woods, with very few sightings of grandmother’s house


Opening holes can be bland until you get away from the clubhouse and parking lot – but not this beauty


Rail-thin 11th green can be tough to hold when you’re two feet off it, never mind 150 yards away


No. 6 demands an awful lot of you from tee to twin trees to sand-trap pinched hilltop green


18th presents two lay-up obstacles off the tee – one seen and one not


Greenside traps are big with healthy appetites


Many landing areas are blind


Superior hot dogs at the turn
