2013 U.S. Women's Open Sebonack Golf Club

What an amazing golf course.  Sebonack looks as if it has been there forever and it's hard to imagine it was opened in 2006. The design of Sebonack with the collarboration between Tom Doak and Jack Nicklaus was meant to combine the " Tom Doak look" with the really good strategy of Jack Nicklaus. They also wanted a golf course that is a lot of fun to play, doesn't torture the members, has good greens and resists scoring.  All of that with amazing views on 13 holes that are either on the water or have a water view.  One of the finest golf courses to hold a U.S. Women's Open and this week should be amazing.

Here are some pictures that show those great views and some of the undulating greens players will have to contend with this week.  The scores will all depend on the wind, how dry the greens get and where the USGA decides to put the pin positions.
