Course Review and Comments
This is one of the finest I have ever played, defiantly in my top 20. Greens where rolling very nice about a 10 and, in super shape. The first few holes do not have ocean views so figuring out the ocean pull effect is something you might want to look into. I do not know much about the ocean currents but you can bet I will before I play another seaside course. I do know from what I experienced playing here that the ball wants to pull south west. It took me several holes to figure this out. For me putting the ball on this day was very difficult i.e. you have the ocean vs. elevation. IMO the ocean over powers the elevation here.
Driving the golf ball is fun here, with the generous fairways you can grip it and rip it. Don't get me wrong, the fairways are well bunkered and there are a lot of little rifts and valleys where you can find yourself….
Overall you should find this course to be very picturesque with ocean views on almost every hole. I can only tell you that on the day I played (8-08) the course conditions where 9.5 out of 10. I and my playing partner that day both agreed that it was better than Pebble Beach which we both played that week. I played this course on a Monday and pace of play was perfect and was not held up once.
