The course is generally in nice shape and the greens are great. One bunker I found my ball in was filled with small stones as well as sand which was quite disappointing.
Very friendly staff too.
A beast of a golf course and a credit to Mr. Nicklaus.

Keep your drives in the fairway!

Easier said than done on this super narrow course. The challenge isn’t so much the yardage here (Blues are ~6,660) as it is avoiding trouble, which seems to be everywhere. Trees line every fairway and will require a punch out most times. The areas around the green don’t have much grass so missing in front of a bunker or without much green to work with can be tricky. The tee boxes are all in good shape and the greens were in excelent shape. Very fast and challenging. I’m a 7.5 handicap and shot 44/38 for an 82 my first time playing. It was all about hitting fairways - I didn’t do it on the front and I paid the price. 2 putts are great on this course so avoid the trees and water and you’ll do fine! I wanted to buy some merchandise but the pro shop was pretty barren. Upsetting considering the logo and name are very cool, but very little to choose from
