Spyglass Hill 2015

Course Description:

A breathtaking adventure in golf Spyglass Hill Golf Course takes its theme from Robert Louis Stevenson's classic novel, Treasure Island, published in 1883. Local legend maintains that Stevenson once wandered the Spyglass area gathering ideas for his novels. With this in mind, Robert Trent Jones Sr. set about creating a treasure of his own. Opened in 1966, Spyglass Hill Golf Course features two distinctly different kinds of terrain that influence the way the holes look and play. The first five holes roll through sandy seaside dunes challenging you to carefully pick the safest path. The following 13 holes are cut through majestic pines with elevated greens and strategically placed bunkers and lakes to grab the errant shot. Hole names such as "Black Dog" and "Billy Bones" are hints for the unwary. Spyglass Hill Golf Course is rated one of the toughest courses in the world from the Championship tees, boasting a course rating of 75.5 and a slope rating of 144.

Outstanding. Yeltz is great at designing our favorite courses. This course needs to immediatley be cycled on TGC Tour. The most enjoyable "tournament ready" course. By far one of my favorite courses the game has offered so far.
