The West Course (Par 71) calls for the best in concentration and execution. It is a diverse layout of rolling tree-lined fairways with strategically placed, massive white sand traps. Robert Trent Jones' layout was best described in a New York Golf magazine article "The challenges are numerous: strong wind effect, major water hazard, serious trouble behind the green and sand bunkers ringing the putting surfaces."
The front nine is the scoring nine going out in par 35, the back nine is more narrow and offers many natural hazards. The par four 11th has a very narrow landing area requiring a dead on tee shot. The back nine also features two excellent water holes, the par three 13th and par four 15th which, depending on wind direction, can make club selection extremely important.
