100 GREATEST/BEST IN STATE SCORES
1 / 1
“Shot values: Nice variety of shots and perfect lines. Very few of them are do-or-die. There's enough course here to make a person think.
Playability: With five sets of tees, the course can play long or short. A good player is going to find the line. A higher handicap who sprays the ball will find forgiveness in the bowled sides of fairways that keep those errants shots in play. Best of both words.
Resistance to scoring: Course can play long from the tips. It is eminently fair and could use some toughening. Greens are huge and not particularly challenging. Bunkering does not follow a line of charm.
Design Variety: Right, left, many elevation changes, water carries. Every hole eminently fair. Used pretty much every shot in my bag. Not one bad hole on this golf course, and several exceptional ones. The 455-632 yard 4th has it all. Great hole.
Memorability: I remember the remarkable rhythm to this course. Not much color in the vegetation. The elevation changes look more daunting than they play. Some of the bunkers appear placed more for visual effect than for strategy. The course certainly looks manufactured, though not offensively so.
Aesthetics: This is a beautiful facility. It's exactly what a high-end country club should be. Cool buildings. Sensational, rolling terrain, and holes that visually inspire good play.
Conditioning: Greens had been punched and might have played a bit faster, but I'm quibbling. Excellent.
Ambiance: Kids, walkable (for billy goats), and a low-key membership."
