So have a hypothetical question. Your friend asks you to play a super exclusive private course, with tons of history, that is supposedly super nice. They don't let cell phones on the course or in the club house and you have to wear pants in the 110 degree humidity.
You find the course to be perfectly manicured and green, there are the best design principles utilized but it's super hard. Every par three is pretty long and you have to carry bunkers and/or water on every approach. The greens are rock hard, very fast and tricked out with lots of rolling undulation. Missing the fairway leaves you not in rough but basically a wasted sandy area that isn't raked. You end up shooting 10 or more strokes over your handicap for the round.
Do you enjoy a round like this if so why?
