Course Review and Comments

If you are not a 10 handicaper or better, this course will eat you up. Course knowledge is very important. Many holes require 150-200 yards of carry to fairway, or green. You are either in the fairway or digging for a new ball. Don't understand why you would design a course like this for a retirement community. Not sure why you would design a course like this unless you were only going to have retired PGA golfers there. Hole number 5 is impossible. It says to lay up at 155 yards or less for a 375 yard hole. Which then would require at least a shot of 220 yard, 90% carry, to reach the green. Otherwise the landing area is a angled away you fairway about 25 yards wide, guarded by a 20 foot deep gulch on the left and trees on the right. If you can hit your driver 260 yards and be able to land in an area the size of a blanket every time, this hole is a piece of cake. It is the number one handicap, and I have idea how to play it. If you want to feel bad about your golf game, play Rainmaker.
