Pretty sure that's not a tough decision

I saw this awhile ago and wanted to play as well, but I didn't post it because I didn't want to lose Sarg's sponsorship this weekend.

That and BRP is fairly boring IMO. It's not bad, it just really feels like you are playing the same hole over and over again.

I realize you're saying this for effect but you should really have your posting privileges revoked for typing stuff like this. :roll: :?

You might have just trumped all of ghstinshll's posts put together for worst post ever with this.

Pitt does have a point (it took me awhile to jump on the bandwagon with him and clue) but for every dope hole at BRP there is an equally simple and boring one. I was like most and got blurred vision by the aesthetic wow factor ........ don't fret it goes away over time and you will see the course more clearly.

You just said something completely different than Pittman tho. Name two holes that are similiar, much less "over and over."

I think the first 18-hole version of BRP had a lot of sameness to the holes since most were par 3s in the woods. The current 27-hole layout has been a solid improvement with more par 4s for variety. One thing that might make it seem like some wooded holes are the same is the lack of elevation there. That "sameness" feeling can occur on other wooded courses where little elevation is available. Turn left, turn right, go straight, repeat.

A recent reviewer on DGCR felt that the sod holes like 15, 16, 24, 27 & 1 (not sure on some numbers) felt similar which I could see. I think turning a few of those into combo par 4s with one leg in the open and one leg in the woods or vice versa could improve that issue. Not really a bona fide par 5 there either which you might expect in a 27-hole private course with that rating.

1,2,3 are the exact same with the exception of 1 being any shape you want. 12,15,16 are the exact same (and pretty much the same as 1,2,3. All the open field shots are 350 hyzers, 13,14,19,24,27.

The par 4s are all good IMO, and instead of 22 mediocre par 3s I thought there should've been more par 4s and a couple par 5s. But every shot under 300ft is a turnover, and every shot over 300ft is a hyzer. Out of 22 holes there are only 2 exceptions to that.

I enjoy the course. I just think it's incredibly overrated. Like J&B, it's not that it's horrible, it just could be so much better.
