Very challenging is the understatement. Beautiful golf course. Always fun to play. More enjoyable when you play well. Not always the case, though.

Hard to get tee time because of its popularity, difficulty & fame but an amazing course. Pricey but that's what happens when you are one of the top 10 golf courses in the U.S.
