Kierland GC, Scottsdale. 27 holes by Scott Miller, 1996.

It’s not that there are any atrocious holes here; the golf is bland, but not terrible. What gets me worked up is that a course like this charges the absurd rates they do. And why? Because it’s attached to a high end resort? Because they keep it green (and thus overly wet) all through the summer? Golfers who don’t know any better assume the high price tag means there’s something worthwhile about this course. I don’t see it.
