Course Review and Comments
This is a pretty challenging course. The greens are benign and probably the easiest parts of the course, but getting there is another issue. There is lots of sand guarding the greens on short holes. There is an island green which is a decent size, but if you don't hit it high and loft it on there, it's bound to roll off the green. Practically an ATM for used golf ball folk. There's lots of wind, so even on holes that may seem short or long, the distance is probably different that what you would expect. The sand quality is decent, and that's a good thing as there's a good chance you'll be hitting into it. The first hole for example is completely lined with a long bunker on the left side. So being a slicer is actually not a bad thing on this hole. There is almost no fringe between the green and the bunker (since it's sloped down). Good thing is it's only 100 or so yards. Swing easy and straight and you should have a good start. Easier said than done though since there is no range for you to warm up.
Basically what makes this course difficult is a combination of strong winds, narrow fairways, long par 3's, short par 3's guarded by serious bunkers, water that provides a challenge. I mean, if you are looking for a leisurely par 3 course where you can just putz around, this isn't it. It's great to play at night and hone your game though. I think if you can master this course you can get into the single digit handicap range. Except for the flat greens (which are relatively fast compared to KSC).

Great to get some full swings in; just don't expect to use your driver much (or at all if you hit it long)
