What a stunning golf course this is!

Based on fantastic hole layouts this course looks extremely scenic and realistic, and is for sure one of the most beautiful courses I've played lately. While all of the basics (like blending) are implemented absolutely fine, I have to mention that the work on the bunkers does stand out. Fantastic!

Planting is also above the level what you might normally see.

If I had to complain about anything, I'd say it is a bit too easy. Especially on the Front 9. But apart from that, this is a Must-play on TGC.

This is billed as the more friendly of the two Savage Gulf courses, but the Ocean course is no pushover. The greens can be a bit tricky on some holes, and downright hard on other holes. Other than a few tee shots that require caution, however, the holes do play fairly generously to start, and require a precise approach shot if you want to put up a low number.

With the exception of a few trips to water's edge, the front 9 starts off a little slow. The Tropical theme, sad to say, can get a little monotonous and have a same-y feeling between courses. It takes a vision and laser-like focus to create a unique round in Tropical, and this one doesn't really have it on the front 9, which leads to a somewhat bland experience on the in-land holes.

Thankfully, I found the back 9 much more interesting, especially when comparing in-land holes. Overall, compared to some of the other Tropical options available, this one blends into the crowd just a little too much. As a standalone course, though, it's a solid production from Mr. Driver and a good, fair, moderate challenge.
