layout is smooth and flowing, with long horizon lines and elevated tee boxes
and greens. As a layout, The Nicklaus Course contours naturally to the
landscape. Not necessarily a hilly course like Tom Watson’s, it was designed
to flow smoothly and gently from tee to green. Designed to tempt golfers into
hitting risky shots with potentially big payoffs, the course challenges the
golfer to step up on the ball with a carefully organized series of shots in
mind. A target, parkland-style course,
it was designed to be a players’ course rather than what is often referred to
as “resort golf”. The 7,244-yard layout is not exceptionally long by today’s
standards, but postage-stamp greens, forced carries that lead to fairway
targets sometimes only 50 yards long and a fair amount of trouble for wayward
shots give the course plenty of bite.
