(Saturday version played) An accurate real life recreation of Congressional Country Club (Blue Course) that both looks and plays great, and I know from experience just how much time and effort it takes to achieve that. Everything is smoothly sculpted, the planting and other additional features are used perfectly and the elevation changes are used to show this all off to full effect.
There are only two minor issues preventing this from scoring a perfect 10. Firstly there are a couple of pins cut a little too close to yellow slopes and secondly the fairways are set firmer than the greens (a pet peeve of mine I know!). For about 16 of the 18 holes neither of these are an issue but on the odd occasion my ball landed a yard or two short of the green it was jarring to see it bounce on and leave me a 50+ putt.
