I firmly agree with Mr. Berle's comments but rate the course a little better. You start off with three rather pedestrian par 4 holes but starting at the downhill par 3 4th hole you are in for a treat through the remainder of your round. There has been significant tree removal since my last trip there in the early 2000s opening up the vistas and bringing the rambling creeks into play. This course has a beautiful set of par 3s most notably the short 8th with its infinity green. The course features strategic bunkering throughout. Conditions on the day I played were superb (9/72020) but recent rains prevented the course from playing firm and fast as stated by others. The first 3 holes just leave you a little dissatisfied which is a shame since the rest of the course is so strong. Coupled with the historic wonderful resort, it should be on your short list.
