After reading the most recent review, did not have high expectations as to condition, and that review was spot on. The fairways are some of, if not the worst I have played anywhere this year! The gre... Continue »

If you aim for the center of the fairway you could end up in the water because the last 75-100 yards is downhill, so you'll get a lot of roll. And if you are short of the water you'll have a downhill lie for your approach shot over water, which is a tricky shot. If you hit an iron or wood to stay at the top of the slope you have a longer shot over water, with a green that slants away from you. Aiming over the left trap could work, but if you miss a little left you could be in the trees, and a little right and you're in the water. I prefer the unconventional approach: aim for the center of #10 fairway, which runs parallel to 18. That takes the trees, water and bunker out of play. The main advantage, though, is that you have a flat lie on good grass, and the water on the approach shot doesn't come into play. The downside is that you may have to wait for the golfers on #10 to hit your shot, and the GPS or sprinkler heads won't give the distance.

Short but mighty. Play a club off the tee that puts your most accurate iron in your hands for the approach shot. Be on the right level to putt on this treacherous green, I have witnessed a 6 putt for an 8 on this hole.
