Played prior to the women's qualifier and the course was spectacular. The greens have incredible undulations and the views from the course are incredible.

Played Castle Course in 7/17. Layout is good; condition is fine; scenery is excellent. Greens are horrible. Goofy golf--belong on a kids mini golf course. Hard to imagine what designers were thinking. Spoiled the whole thing. Plus it ain't cheap. Have to mention pace of...More
