Tough course. Leave your driver at home and you will be happier. Accuracy is far more important than length. Greens are fast but fair if you can get the up-hill / down-hill thing figured out. A little local knowledge would be a great help as there are many big numbers to be made if you get it off line on some of the blind tee shots. (billions of trees) Lots of fun if you can keep it in the short grass.
