Played today, good course. Shortish front 9 followed by an interesting back 9. Greens were slowish and looked a little long but ran true and mo complaints. Overall was in good nick and couldn't complain about it. A good course to play at.
Those 2 par 3's are ridiculous and we played from the whites. 6th hole 213 par 3 that is slightly rising from tee to green. 13th downhill 220ish.
I think the two long par 3's bring absolutely nothing to the course. They're pretty much just point and shoot golf. I would love to see the course invest some time and money in improving them- start with shortening them and then add a bit of strategy and the course as a whole would be better for it.
I think the other par 3's offer good variety- 8 from the top of the hill to a smallish green, 10 flat with good bunkering and 17 shooting uphill all bring a point of difference and encourage the player to think about their shot. 6 and 13 just invite the player to slog... IMO.
I do enjoy the variety across most of the course, and I think most holes give the player risk/reward shot options.
