is protected by cross bunkers hidden from
the tee (top right). The fourth, a par three,
features a fairly small punchbowl green
(middle right). The brilliant uphill sixth (center)
plays in an opposite wind and creates a premium
on the player’s angle into a well-protected sloping green.
The long par three eleventh plays to 260+ yards from the back tees with severe drop offs right of the green complex. (It'll play shorter for the Open!) If you can clear the deep bunkers guarding the front of the green, players have a reasonable chance at par.
subtle breaks are emblematic of the entire layout. You
can coax it all you want, but these greens can run up
to 13 on the stimp meter, and every putt will roll true.
If you’re playing defense, you may be in trouble!
