Yep.  Pretty sad.  I have played a number of Rees Jones courses and for the most part enjoyed them and found them very playable.

Had not heard about this, thanks for sharing.  Not really finding the "why" answered in any detail, I started looking around and found this article which provides a bit more information.

I've played a few of his and found them to be just ok. They were fairly one-dimensional. Many landing areas pinched on both sides of the fairway. Many pushed up or elevated greens or pressed up to a pond. Bunkers on both sides of most greens. Mounding framing holes.  Decent courses but not a lot of variety and not among my favorites.
