Awesome round

This course makes you use your course management skills to the hilt.

Play it right and you can make birdies and keep doubles off your card or ignore it and you could rack up triple or more.

Enjoy the challenge as much as I do every time I play Ambiente or Padre,

Mediocre

Felt more like playing a mid-priced daily fee course in Florida. Quite forgettable and loving off the glory of its sister course on property. Not going to be an issue for most but currently the course is coming off overseeding - fairways are extremely soft (think plugged balls in fairway) and quite shaggy. I’d stay away for the next couple of weeks.
