Phil -Great work on the photos! I've been curious about this course since moving back to the midwest.Quite remarkable how well the greens seem to fit the land given -- or perhaps because of -- the contrast between their rather dramatic form and the property's lack thereof.A couple questions, if you don't mind:First, how long was the total fairway+swale+green on the Biarritz hole? I ask because I'm curious as to whether the running shot is even an option...I feel like it would be almost as challenging to get a ~180 yard shot to release back through the swale as it would to fly the thing to the green.Second, many of the greenside bunkers appear more shallow than those I have encountered on Mac-Raynor courses. Was that true, or is this a case of the camera flattening things out?Thanks again for sharing!Best, Andrew
Blue Mound is very flat except at one corner of the property (4-5 holes). Making all the bunkers deep would have been unnatural, and expensive.
