Diamonds from the Rough

Tee shot on No. 11 is murder


Elevated greens test short game


Outstanding mix of hill and valley holes


Becomes easier once you understand its treachery


Grab it while you can – you never know when it might go private again


You’re guaranteed a rich golf experience on this highly diverse layout


Play this course twice in a row and you might not see the same shot twice in a row


Expect to be in the greenside trap at No. 10 more often than not


It’s all of its slope rating – and probably a touch more


The rough fights back against fairway woods


Walking is tough; riding might be harder


A very memorable collection of holes


Penal rough
