Boring

Boring

Does anyone beside me think this is going to be one boring course when they get done?

Haven't played it, but even if I had, I wouldn't "go there"...

John - I liked your un-edited comment - Dont worry, Gary can take it!

Boring - maybe so - but considering it's a course more suited to the rec/beginner player I think it will still be fun to play without all the trees. 5 & 7 are still decent holes and with the steep fall offs if you miss your putt you can still have a challenging putt coming back. I'm sure 4 will be the same.

Maybe now is the time to move a couple of baskets...or not. I'll let the course designer determine that now that he thinks his course is boring.

Hell, re-do it to 9, Gary & make it tougher! Wait, someone would have to plant trees to get anything to be tougher.

On that note though, any chance the city will get that bridge dropped in @ the hole 7 / hole 5 transition? I think it'll serve that swampy area well for as many times as people have to cross that area.

speaking of boring, the city cut down all the trees in & around the creek on the lower half of the creek. Hole 3 has nothing on the right to kick your disk back to the fairway. Hole 9 is more open, though the big white Birch/Aspen is still there to throw under, or around. Holes 10 & 12 are completely open now as well. Bah, oh well. Rec course, 'nuff said. I haven't spoken with the park dept, but I assume this is in preparation for 'water management to complete the burying of the creek this year?

it definitely keeps the arm loose, it's great for that. I wasn't complaining, just adding to what someone else posted. Instead of starting a new thread, thought it was somewhat appropriate to put it here.

Have you thought about redesigning it? How about planting some new trees?

Noticed today that the tree on #12 by the creek (right of the tee pad) has been removed. Gives options other than trying to split the two trees directly in front of the the tee pad.
