"Be careful not to write off this little gem just because of its yardage and number of par 3’s. There is far more to this course that first meets the eye. Risk and reward is on every hole, some very tight drives and there are five holes where you can take your driver and enjoy the odd eagle putt but be sure to shape your shot precisely otherwise you are dead."
