Pros: One my favorite courses I have played and a great antidote to all the heavily wooden courses in North Carolina. Open does not mean easy if you play the OB and I can't imagine playing Richlands without treating all the rough as OB. The wicked wind and the OB is what makes Richlands memorable. If you are pretty much backhand only or flick only this is a brutal course in the wind and it is almost always windy. Often windy enough that you have to consider more atypical approaches to the mound like sliding it in upside down etc. I recently added the photos which has the OB marked in red and should make it clear this is no bunny course when played in tournament mode. Also #11 I could not photograph in a way to get the feel of it but it is played as an island where any disk NOT on the island is OB. It has ruined some days for players :-)
Cons: There are several birdie 'guarantees' which usually help balance out that double circle seven that snuck on the card but certainly could be improved with a strategic planting or two. There are two places the tees are pretty close together though never truly in the way.
Other Thoughts: The park itself is quite clean and well maintained with real bathrooms. Bring your best decision making and everything you thin you know about wind, play all the OB, count all your penalties and give it a go :-)
