Bulle Rock Worth Every Penny – by Steve Czaban

1. Play It

Lucky enough to play Bulle Rock GC in Havre de Grace, Maryland on Thursday. Bulle Rock is phenomenal. It is knock your Foot Joys off, awesome. The conditioning of the course, has never been anything but at the Tour quality level. Period. I’ve played there about 5 or 6 times now, and it never disappoints, no matter how dicey the weather may have been the last few weeks. If you want to get a sense of how hard “Tour conditions” are to play under, Bulle Rock will give you a taste. When greens stimp at 10 or more, the precision needed on every approach, chip, and putt will test your game to the max. And I played once on real “Tour” greens, at last year’s Kemper Open pro-am at Avenel. And those greens are even MORE insanely fast and hard. Now Bulle Rock is not cheap, and it takes a good two hours almost to get to from the D.C. market. But it is worth it. No question. Go there when your game is in mid-summer form, take a caddy, and stick around for a fabulous meal afterward, and order the crab-balls as an appetizer. The day will cost about $200 out the door, but trust me, you will NOT feel cheated, in any way.
