Then you had better bring a few hundreds miles of yellow rope with you.
What makes Winthrop Gold the challenge it is, is the omnipresent Out-of-Bounds. Your drives, your upshots and even your putts are at risk.
Imagine if you played a hole on a long, narrow peninsula where there was water on both sides of the fairway and the basket sits on the far tip of the peninsula. You have to get distance on your drives but if they finish a little bit too left or a little bit too right they slide OB. Most of the holes at Winthrop Gold are designed like this, with yellow rope substituting for water.
Winthrop is just a nice course. Winthrop Gold ( Winthrop Yellow Roped) is one of the best and most exacting courses in the world. It is not just the fact that lots of danger exists. The ropes are brilliantly positioned. No one gets an easy out. It doesn't matter if you are righty or lefty or how much power you have, you still have to control your shots, especially the finish of your shots.
