Ok, so you posted them while I was typing my last reply. The course looks beautiful, but I'm with you on the trickery. They don't need to make every shot be a miracle. You can cross it off the list, at least.

Wouldn’t have been so bad, but I only remember being able to see 3 or 4 flags from the fairway, or rough where I was. Too many bumps and swails.

But I guess since they built it on the side of a giant hill that is mostly rock, I suppose you don’t have a choice.

Much prefer my links style, flatter and less trees.

Not sure if it was the pressure of playing with the boss or what, but I was off all day. I was being out driven by a guy that couldn’t hit it 3 feet a few weeks ago. Probably too much pressure on myself.

Pix awesome but I’m sorry you didn’t play that great. Maybe sometime you can get another shot at it.

Don’t beat yourself up too bad, you’ll be playing east coast sea view courses in no time.[emoji106]

Haha. I HOPE NOT. I’d rather play the one south of here a bit they use on the Symetra Tour. It’s called Sweet Grass. Much more fun.

I guess I could do a fall trip up here sometime when I retire.

A few photos. We were getting pushed along all day too much to really enjoy the course or even take 3 seconds to snap a photo, and behind 4 super slow guys. It was packed since it was the first day above 80° all year. And honestly the only thing I liked about it was the views. There isn’t a flat spot on that golf course I don’t think.

Most frustrating thing ever was my ball hung up on a side hill on the only tuft of rough on the hill, if it would have rolled a bit more I would have been in great shape. I had to stand almost with the club level to my head. I about packed it up after that hole.

Second would have been my plugged low in the bunker, under a lip. Just hit it with the toe of the club to get it back down in the bunker, that was 15’ deep.

Too much trickery for my liking. And too damn hilly.

We played from the middle tees, around 6400 yards. I only hit 1 fairway all day. I think it would have been better playing from the back, extra 400 yards but not as many blind shots.

Fairways were extremely undulating, and so were the greens. I did like some of the green complexes, had some fun with running chips, pitches and putts around the loopyness of it.

A lot of blind shots, which I can’t stand.

Yeah. Really not impressed for the price tag, not one bit. If were to plan to play it I’d definitely try to catch the spring or fall rate, but you might freeze to death.

Nice looking course, but I HATE blind shots too.  My course has a few places where errant tee shots will give you a lie where you need to hit a high fastball.  I've gotten quite use to them over the past 3 years.  😉

Looks like a course set in a pretty area, but  it looks like a nightmare to try and play. Especially having not seen the course before.

Sorry you didn't play well - I bet if you played it again it would be a different experience. I've had those days (I suppose we all have) where I put too much pressure on myself and that is devastating on a penal course. Thanks for sharing the pics - it looks lovely.

Yeah. If you’re off a little, it’s a long day. I don’t like these kinds of courses. It’s cool to look at, but I don’t think I’d ever play it again.

There was about 5 holes that I’d play again. The other ones I was thinking to myself, how the heck am I supposed to play this thing!

The high fastball would have been alright but it nestled down, almost plugged. Took me 4!! whacks to get it out of there. Wish they would have gotten a video, I am pretty sure you could see the steam coming off of me. [emoji23][emoji23]

Finally hit it back into the fairway and managed to save triple bogey after knocking a 40-50 yard pitch to a foot.

Wish it was better for ya Shanks, but thanks for the pics. That par-3 with the bowl-type green looks absolutely diabolical!

I had a similar experience last year out in Bend playing Jack's course at the Pronghorn Resort. Absolutely beautiful but the course set-up just had my number. Lots of blind shots, plenty of all too-well placed bunkers and just frickin' hard! I, like you and this place, would be hard-pressed to play it again...

Keep yer chin up! It's just golf!

That was uphill and miserable. I over faded an 8 iron managed to stay on a little walking path. Tried a Phil phlop over the Rock, hit the rock, almost hit myself in the head then ended up down the front a little.

Then pitched up to 15’. At that point it was circus golf.

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.
