Stumbled onto Bethpage in round 4, so now my club has played one of each course. Personally, am doing much better at Bethpage, even with the wind against. At least can reach the greens in GIR, unlike the longer holes at Chambers Bay and Pinehurst, not to mention Merion 18, but who ever reaches that green in 2 even with a tailwind, lol?! Cheers!
I agree about the course difficulty, but TG for 11 greens, not 13.
