The Black is the best bang for your buck available in the USA. It's a VERY difficult course to walk and carts are not permitted. Caddies are generally available. This is a course which punishes attempts at heroic recovery shots. If you miss the fairway then just pitch out and play for bogey. It's a wonderful wilderness experience as most holes are isolated and there are no houses in site. Fairways are generally maintained at near US Open width & the rough is long and the fescue longer. Many par 4s are driver and then fairway wood and you'll still come up short. many fairways required a 200 yeard drive to reach them off the tee. Short hitters should play the Red course.
