But don't let that stop you.
After hearing about how nasty this course is I hesitated trying it until last week. What a great spot! Sure, if you miss the fairway in many places there's a good chance you'll lose your ball. But if you have a large collection of used/found balls and want to just enjoy a round of golf, Widow's Walk has some wonderful views, creative layouts, and some of the most professional-like greens I've played in a non-elite course.
The staff was helpful and friendly and we were un-rushed for our round. It was mid-week and mid-day and not very busy, which helped I'm sure. But the layout makes each hole kind of private so anyone waiting on the tee box doesn't appear to be breathing down your neck.
Some of the challenges are actually a little scary but fun. Like the 8th hole, where it looks like you have to carry your drive over the Atlantic. But the distance is deceptive and the elevated tee will have you feeling like Rory when your ball lands safely on the other side. Sometimes...
Play this course and judge it for yourself. If you're a golfer with a low handicap who likes a challenge, you'll find it here. If you're a golfer who'll never shoot under par but enjoys making at least one great shot on each hole (and won't mind losing a ball or two) you'll enjoy it as well.
It's a long and hilly course, though, and if you're not used to walking you might want to consider using a cart. Good luck!
