Played this course after playing the Slammer and the Squire in the morning. Had to pay $288 for both courses and felt that was too high. Conditions were great and the combination of the King and the Bear design was not so obvious that it reflected negatively on the round. I have played Nicklaus courses before and the greens complexes tend to be very punitive but that was not the case on this course. I enjoyed this course a bit more than the Slammer and the Squire but my partner felt just the opposite. Anyway, very nice layout, challenging but not over the top. I just felt this should be a $80-$100 course - part of the reason is a higher tax imposed to support the World Golf Village and the Hall of Fame - by the way make sure you visit the Hall of Fame - well worth the less than $20 admission.

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Expensive, but not worth it
