Without a doubt, this is a tough track. Of everyone I know that has played it nobody has scored inside 10 strokes of their index. From the tee, the intimidation is mostly visual (I don't think it is actually as tight as people say). Most holes have a safe landing area (although you might not see it). Almost exclusively, though, the safe landing area makes the approach shot exponentially more challenging and you must be prepared to accept a lot of bogeys. If you challenge the hole from the tee in search of birdies and pars you most definitely bring doubles and triples into play for mildly errant tee shots. The beauty of the design for me is that you get to choose. This is the best collection of par 3 holes I have played. The back nine is exceptional without a miss. Hope to shape it both ways and work on your short game from the parking lot before you go. You will need every shot in your bag. It is tough, it is a blast, and if you can - have lunch in the men's locker room over looking the 9th green.
