So many people have suggested Wolf Creek is a ball eater. Personally I fail to see it. But then again, I don't go for the miracle HIGH RISK shot when I play. I guess if I did I would see more lost balls.
I have not played WC many times but what I see are many more holes that offer the risk/reward factor, compared to other courses. (Especially for a 6-week Legend!)
For me, the right wind gives me a chance to hit over things (hills, creeks, rough) that I would normally avoid - sometimes yielding a big advantage .... IF I read the hole and wind right and IF I make the shot!
There are a few tight places that require quite accurate shots, but not much more than other courses.
I play a slower meter ball and look for clubs with slower meters since my hand-eye coordination is not what it used to be. Even then.............
Yes - it is more of a HIGH Risk/Reward course than many. Especially with high winds!
