I've always though of Rich Harvest Farms as the course most guilty of this, at least that I've played.
Tommy,Would you mind clarifying “flow” a little more because your skiing analogy seems to contradict your opening paragraph (or more likely I am just missing the meaning)?For instance, St. Enodoc has a beautiful flow - as well as variety - in that it takes you in to different landscapes, feelings and vistas effortlessly.Muirfield has a beautiful flow but you know you are essentially still in the same field.
Some puzzles are pieced together to form an abstract finished piece...others to form a more literal piece of "art". And, there are lots of types of puzzles. A par-3 course is a much different puzzle than a regulation layout. The Himalayas is much different than playing Oakmont in the wind. Not to mention that playing in a club championship is significantly different than playing with your son or daughter — on Father's day, and for fun. The "thing" about golf is that the actors are unpredictable. There is no script — only a stage and an audience of birds, frogs and worms.
