To answer a few questions and add a comment or two.
The course is very wide, not narrow at all, we had one instance of looking for a ball in the 2 days there. The course is not difficult, good scoring can be done and the holes are full of variety. I wouldn't tire of playing there.
Windwise, on the first day, there was none, blue skies, a real chamber of commerce day. Second day there was at least a 2 club wind which added plenty of interest shotmaking-wise but with the width still very playable.
Notable holes are the 4th, the downhill hole which will get most of the photos, the par 3 5th, par 5 7th, par 5 13th, par 4 14th, par 4 16th and the par 3 17th but there really is no weak hole.
My favourites were the 5th with an infinity green, 7th with rolling terrain down to the green leaving all sorts of interest from 100 yards and in, 13th with a great green, the short drivable 14th with Bill Coore's 'Inverted Bunker'. The full of options 16th and the short postage stamp 17th.
Also to note is the playground or the massive putting green near the restaurant and the practice area with Gibraltar, Biarritz, Punchbowl, Redan, Short and Eden combined and Sitwell Park greens. It's possible to play the holes on the range as par 3s when the range has been closed and the balls picked.
Initially I thought the split between it and Tara Iti might be 6-4 in favour of Tara Iti but having gone around Tara Iti again after, it might be 7-3.
Tom's North Course is visible from the 14th green and 15th tee and looks very dramatic so it will be very interesting to see how that would dictate a 10 round split between the three.
I guess the only question I'd have of the courses is whether fescue is too thirsty a grass for them.
