Course Review and Comments

5 tee boxes make the course great for all standards. If you pick the correct tee box for your standard of golf you will have a lot of fun. If you pick a tee box that is above your standard, you probably won't want to come again! Personally I feel the back tees are for professionals only; I tried a drive from the back tee on one of the long holes and even though I hit it straight, long and true, I finiished 30 yards short of the unplayable hazard. So even if you have a very low handicap, I would recommend stepping up a tee box.

Every hole on the course is interesting and different. Pete Dye said that this is possibly his best course design ever. I'm inclined to agree with him; it's certainly one of the most playable.

Even though the course is still very young the greens play true and fair and the overall condition is imaculate. Service is what you would expect paying $235/round or $175 twilight, and even the limited temporary kitchen facilities serve up a very decent meal. The chef by the way is top notch and I've heard that many come to the course just for the food. Eating outside after the round was a dream. The course is pleasingly "bug" free which is amazing given the amount of water and long grass on the course. If you live near New York and you love golf, this course is an absolute must play. Once the new club house arrives next year and they introduce the planned fore caddies, I suspect that it will be very difficult to book a round in the future. So for now, my advice is to get a few rounds in before the rave reviews start to hit the headlines.
