Quote

“It’s one of my favorites. It’s a classic golf course. I wish every week was a little bit like this – sunshine, great design, small greens, firm. It just has everything.” – Luke Donald

“They don’t tweak it. They just leave it the way it is. They leave it here, and they let the grass and the winds and the humps and bumps of the greens define their golf course instead of trying to make it extra long.” – Bubba Watson
