Course Review and Comments

Excluding number 2, the first inland six holes and are relatively flat and easy. The thrill ride begins on the seventh hole, where the course meets the sea for the first time and begins to weave its way though rugged dunes that are covered with deep natural grasses. Holes 7,11,15, and 16 are all extremely memorable, and may be considered some of the best in the world.

The course is not long, and the fairways offer generous landing areas. Approach shots, however, are very demanding. The dramatic shaping around the greens requires a high level of skill in the short game. Low scores are attainable on this famous course if you can control your shots, and the wind is not blowing too hard.

Overall, it is a great course that offers incredible variety and natural beauty. This is one rare course that I could play every day, and never get bored.
