I walked off this course in a bit of a daze, to be honest. I think if you want to experience what playing on fast greens with big slopes (similar to Augusta) is like, you should play the Castle Course!! Along with my playing companions we were sometimes made to look foolish on this course, where it is very easy to misjudge a putt and see it roll off the green. It also starts to make you nervous on approach shots, as big numbers are easily made from around the greens! There are some terrific holes here, and the views are great, but I would think they will have to tame down the greens if they want to see tournaments played here. Plus, I would still rather play Kingsbarns, The Old Course, and the New Course above this one.
