Snapshots

Very compact layout for walking


First three holes are par 4s all topping out at 400+ yards


Fescue-topped mounds can hide our ball as well as camouflage fairway bunkers


Conventional parkland layout on the front, wetlands create mayhem on the back


No real carry worries on the front 9, but 11 and particularly 12 are vicious in their demands


You can get through the front side with one ball, but might be well into your third sleeve when walking off 18


Hourglass fairway on No. 8 leaves you little choice between fescue-fringed sand and water


No course diagram on card and no monuments with hole numbers at tee stations


Lovely trees throughout the course, but they’re mostly at a safe remove


Greens are beautiful, roll true – and are a little slow


16 is a psycho dogleg
