Course Design Rating
Course Design Comments Some may say how could I possibly rate an under maintained muni as a 4 of 5 star course. First let me say that any Donald Ross course gets at least 3 stars to start. I don't want to oversell this design because from tee to green only a few holes are memorable. Many of the holes have been modified however, many of the classic Ross turtleback greens remain (at least on the back nine). It's a shame they are not maintained as intended (fringes and run offs grown as rough instead of maintained at fairway length) becasue they truely are a fantastic representation of the Ross Pinehurst #2 style. I've played Sara Bay after the Silva redesign/refurb and the greens here are very close to those on Sara. I actually believe the number 16 green could be sliced off and droped on Sara Bay and you wouldn't even notice. If your a golf enthusiest and love the history of the game, give it a shot, you won't be disappointed. Just focus on the layout overall and enjoy those greens. Let's just hope they survive.
