Without a doubt, the most fun and sheer terror I've had playing golf. Period. This is a shot makers course with forced carries on almost every tee box and blind approach shots if you are not positioned perfectly after that forced carry. From the first tee box you are faced with visually intimidating vistas that greet errant tee shots with sandy or high grass monster sloped resting places. Being in the sand off the tee is the best of all other options if you fail to find the fairway, Played the course in early November so the rough was dormant and the greens were a little rough but overall the course was spectacular. I'm a 7.2 handicap and other than 5 unnecessary 3 putts and a 4 putt on #18 I shot an 82 from the disc tees. I consider it to this day my best round of golf ever. I went in prepared with 4 sleeves of balls. I didn't lose a ball. This is a course you will never forget. I have individual holes burned into my consciousness forever. Well worth the trip.......


Stranz @ his "fun-house" best! He did 3 tandem projects: Caledonia/True Blue in MB, Royal New Kent/Stonehouse in Wmsburg, & Tot Hill/Tobacco Rd in NC... and he stepped up the radical designs each time! Love 'em all, but Tobacco Rd is my favorite. Glad it's finally getting deserved recognition!
