There were three cars in the lot when I came early as a single and I was pleased to take the offer to go out alone before the morning rush. Like I had the place to myself...
The course is in great shape from tee boxes through the greens. Just a bit of water, but plenty of sand. Fairways are mostly generous, but all are lush and well-tended. Although I can't recall seeing a tree on the course, the rough varies from 'don't even bother looking' to 'I wish I weren't here' to 'I can make bogey from here'. A interesting and challenging set of holes, reportedly replicating mostly links-style holes in Great Britain. There are a few forced carries and blind shots, doglegs both ways and 2-3 lengthy four pars. Overall, a nice mix that makes the course fun to play.
Jim the starter stopped by on the front to see how I was doing and on the back to apologize for the fact he sent me out without knowing that the back nine greens had been top-dressed with sand. The greens still rolled true, and each putt left its own clear track.
The course merits a 5 star rating, but the failure to tell me the greens had been treated brings it to a 4.
