The famed Medinah Country Club. This 7700-yard monster has hosted many U.S. Opens. Laid out to the specs of the course this has gotten my best reviews from my friends. They have told me they felt like they were playing a real course. The tees are the champions tees. This is a good test for a U.S. Open or another major event. I hope you enjoy the course because it really came out nice. The new boreal theme was the perfect theme for the course with medium greens and fairways.
- A moderately challenging round of golf.
- Greens very realistically created and mildly challenging.
- Narrow fairways and rough make for good but not unreasonable challenge on a relatively flat course.
- Some fairways lined with trees in an unnatural-looking straight and evenly-spaced line.
- Some edges at water are flat with rough located on very steep portions, without adequate smoothing, looking unfinished..
- A lack of smooth transition between grasses in some places where fairway to deep rough looks unnatural.
- Bunker areas look awkward with varying length of grasses surrounding them.
With narrow fairways and rough, small greens, and subtly undulating greens this course will offer the average player a challenge to make par or better on the first few plays. However, there is a general lack of beauty and naturalness that results from the way water edges were created, the placement and spacing of trees along the fairways, and the transitions of various grass lengths along the fairway and around bunkers. As with all other RCR's we are tough on these courses because there is a level of expectation that goes with them. This course and this designer has potential, but RCR's simply require much more attention to detail to get up in the 4.0 level and higher. Still, the yardages are accurate and the layout is pretty close. 3.5/5.0
