Snapshots

Nice routing and short walks between holes


1950s prices if you walk the course on a weekday afternoon


Boomerang par 5 6th is one of the great mad-scientist holes in the game of golf


Greenside and greenfront mounding demands chipping accuracy and imagination


Sand is mostly out of harm’s way, but grass is kept noticeably long from the tee box to the apron to slow down the track


4th hole over water and with no room to fade your tee shot might be the nastiest mid-range par 3 you’ll play all year


Extremely devious set of obstacles and diversions around the 12th green


Greens are very slopey, so you can’t ever be sloppy


Indy-car atmosphere
