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
