Played prior to the women's qualifier and the course was spectacular. The greens have incredible undulations and the views from the course are incredible.

First, the Castle Course is a great course that is fun to play. It offers outstanding views, the chance to score well with good placement, but penalties for wayward shots. All in all, it is a good test, and an enjoyable round of golf with...More
