It was a beautiful day in Spring at a wonderfully well cared for golf course. The course varies from wide open, bent grass fairways with small greens, to narrow, par five, tree lined holes, from long par threes to short par threes over water. There are short, well protected par fours, to long, dogleg par fours. Having command of your golf swing will get you to the green in regulation, where undulating greens will test your ability to read, then putt the bent grass surfaces.
