Course Review and Comments

If you didn't know any better, you would swear the course was designed in the 20's or 30's, not the 60's. It's a strategic gem necessitating fades, draws, highs and lows. Akin to HarborTown in Hilton Head and Valderrama in Spain, being in the middle of the fairways does not always mean you have a clear angle to the green. One or two of the tall trees on the back nine really test your patience and can be construed as unfair, but can also be deemed challenging depending on your perspective. The greens are normally in fabulous shape and the empanadas (crescent shaped fried pocket sandwich stuffed with meat and rice) are the best around. The course's strategic qualities never let up, from the first which is a slight uphill dogleg right with a tree guarding the inside of the dogleg and bunkers to the left, to the 18th which rises and falls to a small oblong green defended by trees, sand, and the clubhouse beyond. If you can't turn the ball here, you're in for a frustrating day. If you think you can turn the ball, you'll want to play 36 holes, which is included in the day rate.
