Course architects, Stephen Kay and Doug Smith, let the shape of the land —with its swells and troughs —influence the shape of the holes. It has the links land character — fast turf, the opportunity to play bump and run, lethal rough and the shaggy browed bunkering reminiscent of the Old Country. The result is a challenging course with four sets of tees that stretches from 5,198 yards to nearly 7000 yards from the tips.
The first four holes on the back offer real scoring opportunities to the ball striker. Teeing up on the 14th though, a player realizes that they needed to bring one more thing to the Links, muscle. The last five holes offer the same risks and rewards as the first 14 holes, but they also offer length. From the tips, the two par-5s exceed 600 yards and two of the three par-4s are over 450 yards in length.
