May River Golf Club

<< < (2/2)

That is one gorgeous Road Hole - although I can't imagine the approach being firm enough to run a shot onto the green, the place has that "lush look."  

Michael Whitaker:

I have not seen May River, but I hope the press release is accurate when it states: "...the sandy soil allows for hard and fast conditions, thereby placing a stronger emphasis on the ground game."

Also, I was struck by this paragraph:

"The May River Golf Course is a 'throwback' to another era. While the majority of today’s golf course designers use distance to offset rapid advances in technology, Nicklaus addresses this issue at May River by introducing both bold and conservative strategic options for play. Thoughtful placement of hazards and contours create interesting angles that enhance and often dictate the appropriate play lines."

It's piqued my interest!
