I was thinking the same thing...
Looks like a fairly tight course with lots of trouble. From those pictures those roughs look to be low to mid height and normal thickness compared to the stuff I usuallyplay on (not terribly well kept, but inexpensive tracks). I think that'd be a pretty fun/interesting course to play.
I didn't go to the range Wed night, but went last night and hit 250 balls or so. I hadn't hit anything in over a week and my PW was horrible. I didn't know what it was, everything was missing HARD right, immediately off the face, in an embarassing fashion. I got incredibly frustrated, switched to a 5i and swung very hard and had some great shots. Went up to 3i and same thing, some good shots, nothing missing hard right. Went back to PW and it went back to the garbage.
After 100 balls I was tired and frustrated so I took a breather. After slowly deconstructing my swing I realized I wasn't clearing my hips fast enough, therefore my hands and club face were INCREDIBLY open. Once I cleared my hips and brought my right hand around harder, I was back to hitting my baby draw shots with all my irons; more distance too.
I was crushing my driver, thank god. Dead straight and 3/4 of the way up the mash 200 yards out (it was hot and humid last night). The ball would either not even be at it's apex or just hitting it when it got to the rear:
