Atlantic Golf Club
The Atlantic has undergone a transformation that reveals the fine course that I always found there. Mounding now a minimum, bunkers changed in-house and the superficial impediments for some to appreciating this absolute gem of a course no longer exist. As I once was quoted "If the appearance of a bunker is more important than its position and function, then the Old Course must be complete crap".
Architectural intelligentsia have excuses no longer. Thumbs way up. Strategies have always been there, angles have been enhanced and the long views including those of the graceful clubhouse have been opened up.
