I could only handle so many 500 yard par 4's into the wind.
The views were absolutely spectacular. The golf course was fair. It really punishes your bad shots, but it rewards good ones equally. The holes I got off the tee well, I had great looks at birdies. Miss the fairway, you're in some serious trouble.
Here are a few pictures.
This one I did a little work with an iPhone app. Pretty cool.
That picture is seriously cool. I'd be trying to find a way to get that blown up to poster size.
I hope you took a few minutes to drink in the scenary. Just beautiful.
