Great links layout and with the wind blowing from the west, make it a tough track. The rough will stop your ball and a wedge is your best way out. The layout is very visable for your shot but the wind plays with you if blowing 15mph like it was on our day. It's hared to believe this area was a field as its fairway bunkers define each hole. Make this a weekday stop and you won't regreat it. Weekends I'm told plays 5+ hrs because of the vacationers in the area and wanting to get their moneys worth.
