CLIPNOTES by Ben Bateson (ousgg)

Description
Real, parkland course
Location
TBA
Conditions
TBA
Concept  3/10
Microsoftís predilection for resort courses becomes clear once again. Itís a pretty half-hearted affair, with a few decent hole designs in order to prop the course up. Thereís little to look at and not a lot to do, though.
Appearance  2/10
Uninspiring would be the best word. Harsh transitions, unconvincing bunkers, cloned planting and a lack of elevation work all emanate mediocrity. Itís hard to believe this is a 21st century course.
Playability  6/10
Sea Island is reasonably fun to play: the individual holes offer up a variety of challenges, and for difficulty reasons (see below), youíll keep coming back. Thereís a distinct lack of decent risk/reward, however, and the tee shots especially do not call on your imagination.
Challenge  0/10
This was the first course I shot under 60 on. In fact I shot a 58, having birdied the first eight holes and the last four. That probably says everything about the difficulty level of this course. Between the flat fairways, the flat greens, the mal-positioned hazards, and the generous areas of rough, Sea Island manages to be utterly, utterly accommodating. But then, perhaps, thatís what resort golfers want.
Technical  3/10
Quite a lot of cloned planting at low-level gives away the age of this course. Thereís no glaring errors, and some nice customisation in the chalets and soforth bordering the course, but this course would not cut the mustard today, and it really shows.
Overall The course where you want to be to shoot your all-time low round. As easy as they come, and pretty fun for that very reason 14/50
Please remember that Clipnote reviews are the opinion of one person and do not constitute an 'Official' Links Corner review of the course.
