Roddy Ranch is a beautiful setting and a great layout that has hit some difficult circumstances that have hindered its ability to achieve its full potential. Wow. Does that sound prolific?
I have played Roddy Ranch about once when the wind wasn't howling. The first hole - a "reachable" par-5 if there is no wind - is typically right into the teeth of a 20 mph gale. What a way to start.
My advice is to definitely get a yardage book. This is one of those courses that's a real b**** the first time you play it. It's not so much blind shots as it is not knowing how far it is to carry a bunker or to reach the water. Definitely worth a trip out hwy 4 to check out.
