Wow, how underwhelming is that?

Second time it was "announced" for the greater Bay Area. Hope things turn out better than the last time.

not a great course

It is a "very good" course. Very picturesque, super nice accommodations. A little far away from major population centers. San Jose about 20 miles north.

Good for the course, not so good for the reputation of the Women's Open. Heavy pressure on Paula Creamer to perform.

Have any of you played the course? I have and it is excellent. Perhaps I am biased because I lived 5 minutes away, but it's picturesque, difficult, but has excellent risk-reward shots.

As far as it being far from major metro areas, it's less than 20 miles from San Jose. Surely much closer than Sebonack is to any "major" metro areas!
