12 - Mike your tree is going (along with some others near it). We're also going to cut a righty hyser route to the beloved middle position. It will be tight but the line is there.




awesome. But you know, there doesn't have to be a righty hyzer shot on every hole. :D

I know but "it's there". It will open up in two years anyway. Might as well make it the correct way now.

This is what I never understand about new courses. People don't want to take too much so they leave little twiggy trees, always falling back on, "it'll get trampled down at some point". Why not just make the route from the beginning and not wait 2 years for some punk to break the trees they see fit?

I'm starting to come around on hole 14's long placement. It's more of a dead nuts straight shot than a hyzer. But, I still prefer the middle placement.

I still hate 13, and I really don't like 18's blue either. I'd prefer 18 in the yellow.

I think you might be the only one who doesn't like that blue placement on 18.

I don't know, it's just kind of boring. I guess it's not that I don't "like" it, I just like the yellow and red placements more. That's all.

All the way on the right. You have to throw over the ball diamond. It's a real easy shot for a lefty. Probably the easiest hole on the course for a lefty.

17 is just as easy for a lefty when the pin placement is on the right. :D

In the few rounds I played there, I saw some real nice annys thrown on 18, if you don't like taking the risk of crashing OB into the fence, it might be a good hole to hone that shot in on. And, in the short placements I've seen, there's a hell of a lot more easy righty hyzers than lefty ones. (i.e 12, 13, 15, 17, just to name four that come to mind immediately) :lol:


It (18)should be an easy lefty hyzer, but, again, in the few rounds I've played there, there has been wind, so it makes it a little tougher to guage the distance, and it's easy to go too far, or get a bogus roll down the hill to the street, depending on how the hyzer decides to settle, coming screamin' in.
