Is this fantasy golf??

You know those goofy artist renditions of impossible holes? - well I thought I was playing that course! I only played 18 of the 27 holes here, namely the River and Canyon courses so I can't review the Mountain course. But the scenery is way over the top - Pebble Beach (which I've seen in person but not golfed) holds nothing over this course for scenery. But what about the golfing? I think for serious pro-am golfers these holes could prove laughable. Get Phil Mickleson to play it and let me know what he says. I have golfed for fun for over 25 years I would consider myself only a novice golfer, that said, I would expect deadly serious golfers to rate this course poorly only because some of the holes are seemingly outrageous in a miniature golf sort of way. Teeing off at both Canyon #5 and #6 for example, throws club distance estimates out the window because you are basically shooting from high atop vertical cliffs down to small greens threaded by a raging torrent of snaking water rapids of the Poplar River...even Tiger Wood's caddy would shrug off any club advice.

But if you golf for fun - you MUST play this course! You will talk about these holes whenever and wherever the talk turns to golf.
