Grand opening and the back nine.

Grand opening and the back nine.

Postby hyzerman16234 » Tue May 08, 2007 3:07 pm

The grand opening went well with much beer drank and golf played. The feedback on the back 9 was good and we will proceed with plans for permanent holes. I think they can be in by late fall. The overall distance is looking to be around 2400' in the A pins and 3000' in the B pins. I'm not planning any 2 pad holes yet but that may change. I can only think of 2 or 3 that could fit a second pad. Thanks to everyone that has helped and supported this project.

If you have room for a second set of pins, you'd be better served with a second set of tees instead.

Just a thought.

Multiple tees aren't better than multiple pins?

lol, I don't completely disagree with you. I used to play a lot on a niner in the QC (devil's glen, before the redesign) and definately liked having the two tees. I'm just also a big believer in multiple pins, and moving them frequently to prevent excessive grass wear/erosion around the pin locations.

That's why, if you have to choose between the two, more tees is better. You don't have to move them periodically.

bah.

without multiple pins, you have a bunch of greens that look like hole 10's at GVCC.

6 or half-dozen... now you've got more erosion around your single set of tees.

The primary reason for having multiple tees is making the course more appropriate for people of differing skill levels. You essentially have two courses in one.

Actually I have limited space and want to maximze the length to the long one on most holes. The pins are cheaper to put in too. I'm thinking C pins maybe later. Extra pads are fine but cost more and are a lot more work.
