There are many favorable reviews on Pasatiempo....for those who have played it....is it really that special?...especially the $275 green fee....what makes it so different? I read the conditions were really poor when there was a drought.
With the absence of Guan Tianlang as of late...there were rumors that he was working the bag drop at Mission Hills golf Shenzhen. Glad he redeemed himself with a 66 today vs. a near DFL 79 yesterday.
It's definitely in my top 5, along with 3 from Bandon Dunes. Played there a year or so ago, and it was in great shape. I got a deal for closer to $150, which I would gladly do again. I just can't see paying $275 for any golf.
I played last year and it was in decent shape, and with all the rain it should be even better right now. The area surrounding it would lead you to think it's nothing special, but putting the blinders on to that and the course itself is great. MacKenzie bunkers are unique.
We were paired with a couple of members, and local knowledge definitely helps.

nrjyzr: most amazing part of the whole "ace experience"... I managed to actually hit my tee shot reasonably well on the next hole, which was #17. On #18, though, I fatted a 3 wood. LOL

nrjyzr: As for the format, I don't mind it. The biggest problem with the forum is the number of trolls that seem to be sanctioned. Not a fan.
