This is the Worst of the current Open rota venues. Terrible property as far as Sand dunes and undulations are concerned. The design is bland, lots of boring holes with rather blah all over the place. Sure the length and bunkers are up to major championship stature but that isn't everything. The one good note at Holyoke is that there are a few pleasant holes along the shoreline of the clubs property, and the downside is there are about 12 forgettable holes. Save your money and play anywhere else. The clubhouse is pretty to look at, the history inside is worth a look for sure. Never understood why this is ranked where it is on any list for that matter, you'll have a better time and get better value on about 50 other courses within GB&I. Don't bother making any effort to play here.
