Course Reviews


The start of the South Course is not hard unless you are playing the championship tees. Then it is just long. It is a good golf course. It is very tight. If you the spray the ball, you will be in trouble on this course. I had many birdie opportunities, and made three of them. I finished 7 over. The greens were fair, but not lightening fast. The 16th hold is not a monster, it is a good golf hole. The 18th hole is long from the Member tees. Again, I can't stress how important driving the ball straight on this course is. I am 10 handicap and tore it apart because I hit the ball and the greens rolled true. The only real trouble holes I had were 16 and 18. On 16 I played a poor touch shot and put a ball in the pond. On 18, I pushed my drive right and got in tree trouble. IF you get the chance, play it but you probably won't unless you know somebody, like me. But, hey, if everyone could play then it would not be private.

RESPECTED NOT LOVED.

VERY DIFFICULT TO GO LOW HERE.BAD START IS USUALLY OMINOUS.GET TOO FRISKY,SUDDENLY A PLAYER IS IN THE TWILIGHT ZONE. FEW,IF ANY. BIRDIE HOLES. COURSE DEMANDS THINKING,AND A VARIETY OF QUALITY SHOTS.NO.16 REMAINS THE USA'S MONSTER HOLE, BUT ENTIRE FINISHING STRETCH(13-18)IS AMONG TOUGHEST IN THE WORLD. OLD 18TH GREEN SEEMED BETTER THAN REMODELED VERSION.

once in a lifetime

If you have the opportunity to play this course, do not pass it up, no matter what the cost. As a volunteer hole marshal at the PGA World Golf Championship Bridgestone Tournament we are given the chance to play this course for a fee each year. That is one good way to get the chance to play here. We can always use quality volunteers.
