As a tribute to the many fine courses of Pete Dye, mentor to the Schmidt-Curley team, this course showcases all the wild-ride features associated with his designs. Railroad tie sleepers, abrupt mounds, and moguls, long sandy waste bunkers, devilish sometimes small greens and rail-road car bridges all create a distinct look. These features are proven all the more dramatic as the course snakes through ancient volcanic quarry’s supported by steep rock walls and timbers. The dramatic landscape features remnants of days past including coal cars, railroad tracks, and abandoned mining equipment. The course is rather “sporty” in nature, demanding shot making over brute strength and provides a welcoming option to many of today’s long courses.
