Course Review and Comments

The Old Course lives up to the expectations. I think the best thing about the course is that while you can just close your eyes and bomb your drive on a lot of holes, approach shots, chipping and putting are an utter joy. The huge, firm greens make this golf course.

I also must say that I wasn't expecting the staff to be so friendly and down to earth as they were. You would think a course this prestigious would be full of itself. In fact, it's one of the most welcoming places I've ever golfed.
