I didn't really think it was that bad, but it could have been conditions. It was drizzling rain, so it was soft, and there wasn't that much wind. I also hacked it around on the River and Irish courses for the two days before, and played much better on the Straits, so that could weigh on my opinion as well.
One of the things that really impressed me was how different all three courses were (I didn't play the fourth--Meadows?). They were all top notch, but each was a unique golf experience. My wife actually rated it above Pinehurst as a destination.
