||The Trails is a demanding course that places a high premium on accuracy on nearly every approach shot. The course recommends that players be a 6-handicap or less to play from the tips, and this advice should be heeded without exception. The front nine is challenging, but fair, but the back nine has destroyed many a good round. The greens are Champions Bermuda and are typically some of the best around. Putts are fast and true and leave many a golfer wishing their course had the same. On the contrary, The Trails' bunkers are poorly designed and often contain too much native soil to play standard bunker shots. This can be frustrating for even the best players. The greens and tee boxes also require a great deal of water for their type, which is a bad mixture for a course designed in a marshland. The course tends to be soaked during morning rounds, so first-time players should wait until the afternoon to get the best possible experience. Overall, The Trails is a nice course, despite is challenges. The average golfer will make it around in just under 4.5 hours and will go through half a dozen golf balls - at least.
