Bring your "A" game to this wonderful test of golf. A links style course that focuses on accuracy off the tee and marksmanship to get the ball in the right spot on the green is not for the weak of spirit.
The key to playing well here is to stay in the fairway. Once in the rough you are not usually in a position to move the ball forward often. Landing areas are generous and welcome those that can strategically think out their upcoming shot. The greens are fast, usually windblown, and always treacherous to those that leave a downhill putt because the undulations don't provide much to give you confidence.
Be thankful that you need to play with a member. The line you pick needs to be accurate to be able to score.
