Jason:What was your take on the island par-3 hole on the inner half? I viewed it as a lame repeat effort from Pete and frankly the hole is completely out of place given the native area.One of the better holes at the course is the finale. I like what Pete did there -- long par-4 with watering angling alongside the drive zone -- because you have to decide how daring an angle of attack you wish to play. Glad to hear the turf conditions were firm - you were most fortunate to play early in the day -- Wolf has a tendency to be a MEGA WIND tunnel towards the afternoon period on most days.
I also did not like the island green, but loved the overly shaped par 3 #8 w/ the very deep bunker left.Felt like Pete Dye channelling his PGA West days.
The real interesting situation for Vegas golf will be the reception that Coyote Springs gets when it opens later this year. No doubt the first 18 will set the tone for what follows.
