Arrived excited to be playing a PGA Tour Course but was underwhelmed by the surly head pro in the shop and the lack of directions to practice ground, 1st tee or indeed anywhere. Drove around aimlessly and finally got a bit of a bearing and headed to the practice ground where the starter was very helpful suggesting the blue tees. I was in a 2 ball with a friend on a 4 day golfing trip and this was our last game of a competitive 6 round tour taking in 3 PGA courses in 3 cities.
We decided to play of the blue tees at circa 6500 yds from memory. However I found they had moved the blue tees well forward on the par 4's and 3's and we were in effect playing the shorter white tees. This suited my shorter of the tee friend but meant that nearly all the par 4's were playing 350 yds or less. For the expensive green fee paid it was an at best mediocre experience and at worst a rip off as the only reason to have the blue tees so far forward would be to get golfers round quicker. It was driver and wedge all the time and we had the course to ourselves which made it even more annoying. Why didn't we change tees? I'd have liked to but the gold tees where a long way back and would have given me a huge advantage in our match.
The course is in great condition and it is evident that much work goes into keeping it this way. It just felt a bit soulless. Having played such wonderful courses in the preceding days I am perhaps being picky.
We enjoyed great service in the clubhouse but if you're ordering a taxi give yourself plenty of time as we had a wait of almost an hour. To be fair the bar manager offered to drive us the short distance to the airport as it was getting tight for our flight back to the UK.
