    This is a superb golf course. The hole variety is challenging. The course is in excellent shape. The ambience on and off the course is excellent. If a member invites you to play, accept the invitation with no problem.
    The course has been modified in a few places since Donald Ross, but in most cases to lengthen the course. A few weak holes (1, 10, probably 18) but many more memorable ones. Unforgettable challenges are 4, a long par 4 dogleg across water to a rolling green; 9, long flat dogleg par 4 -- hit it where you aim it; 13, par 4, long, straight, but with a hillside and a false front; 14, short par 4 dogleg to a well protected green; 16, long [238 yards or so] par 3 to a 3-tiered green; and 17, long par 4, second shot uphill to a rolling and well-protected green. 18 is a challenge -- short par 4, well-protected small green. Maybe should be a 3.
