All Tournaments held in the state of Iowa or by Iowa affilitated clubs.
I hate always comparing design concepts to ball golf, but I thought it played very similar to higher end golf courses in that par 5s generally play far easier than par 3s and that was certainly the case here (assuming you could reach the par 5s in regulation). I'm not a huge fan of having OB so close to a pin, especially combined with the elevation. Wouldn't mind one or the other, but not necessarily both. All this being said, I wouldn't mind if nothing changed. I'd actually like to see the exact same layout but add a cross wind whether it be north or south. Even though the wind picked up a little it was still either with or against. I think the most difficult aspect of that course would be controlling flight with a strong crosswind in those big valleys.
