Caddie's Summary:  A home to many championship tournaments, NCR is one of the most difficult courses around and surprisingly has no water. It needs none, every hole is demanding and original and the stroll through mature wooded landscape is simply fantastic. Dick Wilson (architect) is well known for the high-walled bunkers and heavily sloping greens. Word is that they will have the greens running at around 11-11.5 for the US Senior Open - which is plenty, as much of the green surface is lost with higher speeds. Regarding the challenge of NCR, it is easily the greens that are most difficult. Large and spacious, approach shots must often be played below the hole and to play close, balls will have to be maneuvered off green slopes and ridges. The best of putters will have a three putt or two with the greens at high speeds. Manicuring is, dining immaculate. Jim Campion has the course in tournament condition nearly every day - edging, trim and even the collection of leaves and grass cuts are all done with care. Amenities include a range, pool, banquette room, bar and fitness center.
