I know this is an older post but I still think that comment is nuts
But not everyone is going to like every course.
The course is on many top pro's Top 10 list. If you played there in november as it seems, I would try playing it in the summer when the course is in immaculate condition. All the fenced areas are played OB in tournaments, and some of the tall grass areas as well. The course from the longs is both beautiful and challenging, definately worth it.
I would have to disagree on the road noise, its true its right next to the freeway and you can hear a great deal of noise but it is not enough to distract you if you have any self control and focus.
