The course was designed by Austrian-based architect Keith Preston. Holes have been methodically routed in two returning nines over a hilly landscape, with plenty of elevation changes to assure a round here is not like an easy walk in the park. Still, bunkers are generally not deep, and fairways are open so to play at Ypsilon is far from arduous. The signature hole is the 200-meter par three 13th, where the tee shot is played to a green landed on the other side of a small valley. The advice here is not to underclub, otherwise you will find yourself watching the ball land on the opposite slope and wondering why it was so short.
