One of my golfing buds joined Bella Collina and invited me out to play 18 of the 27 holes. First time I played the course - tons of elevation changes as the layout is spread over multiple canyons. We played the tournament tee's which may have been a smither too short... The par 3's were all shorties... But most of the other holes were either up hill (Par 5's were up mountains) or down hill with severely sloped fairways. I've been hitting that RBZ 3W pretty damn well... It came in handy today!
I tried to comment on this last night but I must have forgot to hit send, here goes again ... Bella Colina is right down the street from my office. My wife has an ex co-worker who's a member out there and I had a chance to go out there (only once so far) with him. They are very kid friendly and we brought our (almost) 3 year olds with us (my avatar is from that day) and had a blast.
We "played" the Carnoustie nine. I found the "perched" greens really tough - especially as a first timer - and it was fun teeing off with a hybrid on a 600 yard par 5 to keep from running through the fairway.
I see that you used driver on the last hole. For future reference and as a testament to the elevation changes, my friend tried a little trick; After we both hit good tee shots with 3W, he pulled out a range ball and a 7 iron and that ball ended up in almost the exact same spot as his actual tee shot. It was very 18th at Kapalua-esque.
I wanna get out there and actually play 18 (without the kids) but just haven't had a chance.
