All the video is from the front nine.

First shot from Tanner on left side of fairway on #1.

2nd volley from all 3 of us on #2 (the biggest downhill shot of the course).

Over the water is #4.

Drives on #6.

Lots of drives on #7 (3 from me).

Drives on #9.

It should. This course will be like Renny Gold, only more manicured and less woods. More elevation change and more downhill shots. Oh, and you ride in golf carts!!!

I would like to put together a ball golf outing there on Friday. They have an event on Sat morning, so we can't setup the course until the last group tee's off at 12:30.

Saturday practice round first tee time is at 1.

If the longs will be 11000 ft, roughly how long will the shorts be? 10000 or 5000?

The shorts should be around 9000-9500.

I'm guessing with the downhills, you'll add somewhere from 50-100' per drive.

And why all the down hills? Is there something wrong with throwing uphill?

6-7 uphills!! oh no!...thats really gonna make people not wanna play :roll:

I really don't mind the uphills cuz if I miss bad...its like 50 feet off...if you miss bad on the big down hills...your looking at 150 off the fairway...either way...I have to play this.

Whats more fun? Crushing one downhill and if it's off then trouble. Or knowing if you mess up on an uphill it's not that bad. I'd rather throw downhill on these holes. Taking 3 shots to get a 300 foot hole uphill hole isn't much fun.

There are no holes like that. The uphills are not nearly as drastic as the downhills. Most of the uphills are on par 3's and they are designed to be reachable without having to throw out your arm.

Unless it's off the side of a mountain recovery shouldn't be an issue.

Stibs, you can use my Mach 3 portable, only it has to be used for #14 as that is what the number plate says.
