Length, slope and rating for each tee
The course is in mint condition, tee boxes, fairways and greens. Traps particularly attractive, sadly, but well represented opinion says they are full of good sand. This is a good, challenging course. You earn your score.
Good pace and of course, beautiful setting, airplanes to the south, buttes north and city skyline to the west.
