Finally getting time to do the reviews of the courses:
Crown Park- Sporty yet average course that's a bit of a drive. The conditions were good versus previous years, so all the rain is treating courses well around MB. This is a good course to start your time at the beach, as it's not too tough.
Heather Glen- Always one of my favorites. This is a tough course with 3 nine hole tracks. There are lots of bunkers, elevation changes, and tough, but true greens. My personal favorites are the Red and Blue courses. There were 40 plus MPH wionds this day, and it made conditions very tough. Surprisingly, I scored mananged to get around with only 25 putts.... good scrambling for me!
Leopards Chase- Newest of the "Big Cats" courses, and a real test. Since it is the newest, it has no good clubhouse : ( , which stinks. But the course is a great test of your skills and will really test you. You get a yardage book, so you know where to avoid. Nice place and I recommend it.
Tigers Eye- Very strong track. As Lax mentioned, you must play the right tees on these courses. There is a great deal of sand, pompas grass and the usual low country stuff, which will mess up your day if you can't keep in the fairway. I love the Cats and always recommend them.
Possum Trot- This is part of the "Legends Group" that includes Heritage, Glen Dornach, and Shaftsbury. In previous years it was the "ugly sister" and really was not up to par. But they have really done some good stuff here and it played very nicely. Greens in great shape and the fairways were nicely groomed. It's a bit like Crown Park in that it's not the toughest course (sneaky tough), so it's a good course to start your trip with. But it will give you all you can handle if your game is off. I shot my highest round of the week here because I couldn't get the green spped figured out. Slow compared to others.
Sadly, I came home....
