Classic

There is exactly one fairway bunker on the course, no water hazards, and yet it's one of the great tests of golf. I've played the Lake Course twice now as it's set up for normal membership play. It offers great views and just a magical feel - though not quite the setting of something so spectacular as Pebble and the Pacific Ocean. If the greens are running fast, the subtleties there can make this course extremely taxing. Of course, for the Open, they will narrow the fairways and grow the rough which can make ANY course difficult, but the elevation changes, shapes and variation on this course make it just a joy to play. There's something about the simplicity of the final 3 holes that is intriguing. Two par-5s, one just brutally long yet simple, the other straight-forward and reachable. The final hole is so much the antithesis of the modern "great finishing hole". It's a 3-iron and wedge, but with such a premium on accuracy and putting, its a great equalizer. Standing on the 18th at the conclusion of a round in the San Francisco fog with the vision of Michelson's head in Payne Stewart's hands really does give me chills every time.
