David Leadbetter's commitment to instruction is on full display in his first foray into golf course design. The world-renowned instructor devised a layout meant to challenge and teach players without intimidating. Generous fairways, short par 4s and drives from elevated tees are prevalent throughout. Yet it also features large, sand-flashed bunkers and fairways that while wide, rarely yield a perfectly level lie. It requires the player to use every club in the bag at some point in the round, just as any top-notch instructor would demand.
