It's was made in a old sand quarry. The grass fair ways are thin and limited. With Sandy roughs and blind shots on may holes. I believe it could be a 5*, but it is a little to pricey for me.

What a course be prepared to loose some balls. If your not in fairway you are in trouble. Everyone who loves golf should play this at least once.
