Finger’s links-style design features generous fairways and the prominent use of water, along with dry creek beds that snake through the course. The front nine is basically wide open and straight, with the exception of the bending par 5s. The back is more enjoyable with long par 3s, one of which requires a carry over water, and short par 5s that make for solid birdie opportunities. If you’re spraying it, the dry creek beds will cause problems. Another notable hole on the back is No. 14, which rides downhill along I-35.
