Course Review and Comments

In a nutshell: The best course I've ever played. EVER!

Design and condition:
This course is like nowhere else I've played. The landscaping is stunning, with some lovely holes. Plenty but not too much water and clever positioning of hazards.
The greens were running at 11.5 on the stimpmetre and were large and true but very difficult with borrows, hollows and turns!
The sandtraps were like those you see on telly, with wonderful light sand... and some testing shapes too.
Tee boxes weren't bad at all, and with 5 to choose from, it's a very different course each time.

Some big tee shots required and a lot of accuracy. Not so much because of traps/water, but more owing to the fact that if your ball goes into the bushes or trees, a local rule says you have to leave it... snakes, lizards, alligators all waiting to surprise you!! A strokesaver is a must and no GPS on the buggies. Watch the green on 7th, it's truly testing, and the water on the 8th is a longer carry than you'll think off the back two tees.

Facilities and welcome:
Great putting and chipping greens. Very impressive driving range too (free balls in a pyramid!). Pro-shop was small but well-stocked and staff were very friendly.
Clubhouse is not quite in keeping with the course; small bar but lovely outdoor area. Changing rooms were good.
Watercoolers and icemakers are dotted around the course (hidden cleverly), so no need to stock up on bottled water.
$100 and worth every single cent. I could play that course every week for the rest of my life and be happy!
