That plus a required stay at the small but superb Rosewood resort -- you get a boldly bunkered, back-to-nature layout routed through a tranquil valley and draped across rocky hillsides. Creeks and wetlands play a role, notably at the bucolic, if brutal, 573-yard par-5 third, but the design is mostly free of distracting bells and whistles.
