Links with a championship feel

I played Speargrass as part of the Alberta Golf Tour and felt the track had some great features but I was not overly impressed. I am a big links style course fan but this course did not have a big links type feel. The course had an interesting layout as there was some very well placed bunkers and water hazards. It provided some great views especially on the last three holes but the difficulty changes so drastically that high handicap golfers will be left scratching their heads at the end of the round. A lot of the course is relatively flat but then you run into a lot of forced carries and really small landing spots on the back nine. This is a great course to try especially with the amazing views on the final three holes. But if you are looking to find a true links course you will find that there is more of championship type feel that can eat you up if you are not accurate as the round progresses. All in all a fun track to play.

Excellent newer course

After driving by this course a couple of times, finally had the opportunity to try it. Everything was in great shape but stay out of the rough. A good variety of challenging holes.
