Played 4/8/14 with GKer Jerry64. Noticed that they space the tee times out perfect in 10 minute intervals which is a big plus. We tee'd off on time @ 10:20am and the group ahead was already putting bu... Continue »

Played here 3/22 after they had punched the greens. Not a fun experience playing a high priced course with punched greens. The rest of the course is great, especially the bunkers which are world cl... 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.
