Looks absolutely amazing, thanks for the photos.Is it just me or does the course not look all that "Rossy"? I'm just used to seeing smaller, more concise, grass-faced bunkers in his parkland layouts vs. massive but shallower bunkers for example. Franklin Hills just down the road would be an example of the difference. What would be the comparables within the Ross portfolio to this renovated course?This is not intended to be critical, as the place looks literally so good.
The greens are eye-opening...and eye watering. You got a good picture of the 1st, which is one of them. But I'm wondering if you have close-ups of 5,9,13, or 14. They just seemed to be almost in a different world from anything else that I've seen. There are also a few beautiful, but more subtle greens like 2 and 15.
Maybe Pinehurst #2 before the greens got built up? Totally different soil and climate but that's all I can think of. Big bunkers and waste areas after the restoration but not terribly deep.
