Course Review and Comments
Let me preface by saying that this is a beautiful course set in the hamlet of Gormley. The drive into the facilities leaves you in awe, I never been to Augusta but I know what it must be like. Although public, the course definitely has a private feel and strictly adheres to it's code. No shirts untucked or hats in the clubhouse.
The golf course opens with a great risk/reward par 5. You'll need to rope a long drive and then choose the perfect club for the approach shot....definitely a shot for scratch players. The par 4's are tough but fair, you need to be long and be able to shape the ball. If you can play a baby cut you may just find yourself in dreamland. The par 3's are a bit diabolical, you definitely need to have distant control...not for anything one of the holes is aptly named "Pinpoint"...you better have pinpoint accuracy! The greens overall are very tough, better short than long...once passed the hole you're done.
At the 19th you can sit and relax in the beautiful bar and enjoy a nice cold frosty. The big guy at the pro shop always loves to hear a good story about the shot you missed.
Have fun and keep in the short stuff.
