Hmm, I guess it all depends on the layout you play, but "flat, boring, and long" aren't how I'd describe it. It isn't mountain golf, but it's got elevation in play--part of the course is essentially a plateau, so there are
flat parts, but also hills. Luck over accuracy? None of the holes I can think of are like that, though there are some open holes where having a big arm is more rewarding than a technical one. Confusing as hell? Yeah, I can agree to that. Definitely want to hook up with a local if you can. And if you have the opportunity, I'd recommend the pro 27 layout, it showcases all the best holes in my opinion, and has been the most fun of the ones I've played.
