On the West Golf Course, length is not the determining factor, nor should it be. Traditionally labeled the “shotmaker’s” course, there are lagoons to avoid, doglegs to challenge, bunkers that tighten landing areas, and green complexes that will challenge every caliber of player. The mix of holes on the West Course is designed to challenge both the physical and mental agility of the player’s game. The outward nine is more forgiving with receptive green complexes and short-cut areas, while the inward nine is more challenging, particularly with more boldly contoured greens and their surroundings. Shot-making, creativity, and patience are key components to negotiating the inward holes.
