Absolutely, agree. As you saw, I'm not the longest hitter in the world, and there were only one or two holes (mainly due to the wind) that I felt I was hurt by distance off the tee. But like you said, control is much more important, knowing if you can cross the hazard/bunkers on such holes, and of course distance control into just about all those greens.CAA. Wouldn't you say distance control is a bigger factor on this track than pure distance? Even some of the par 5's trouble comes into play for long hitters, such as the cross bunkers on #5. A lot of target golf is required off the tee. Agree?
I'd say it's a hard course, but honestly, if you play it with a bit of thought and don't get sideways, it's not the hardest course by any means that I've played. That said, there are a few "round wreckers" out there, hello No. 16, I'm talking to you and what was the other par 5 on the back No. 10? that gave me fits. But that was more due to a couple very poor attempts on my 3rd shot, I was actually in good shape after my second.
