Thoughts on Middle

Postby Orange Guy » Thu Sep 21, 2006 7:36 am

Middle is AMAZING! Great work on this course. My only beef is with #8 ... and that's due to my own deficiencies. When I can throw longer, then maybe it won't feel like throw, pick up and throw, pick up and throw, pick up and throw. All the holes in the wooded parts had me stoked. Every shot took concentration and a plan of action. We too thought the basket had been stolen on #10. Love the placement across the creek.

Again, great work on that course.

Jeremy, I never killed a deer out at Eastern. Who told you that? You can't prove anything...

I think some larger rocks would work, the creek is very shallow so it could
work well.

Unless one of us hits the lottery, a bridge is not going to happen. It'd be over 10k to build it to flood prove standards.

Isn't there a bridge right there? You know, the big one that cars drive over.

I think I timed the walk to 11 at under 60 seconds. :roll:

I am not directly complaining, I am fielding a concern from a rec disc golfer. It really doesnt bother me, i go across the rocks. but still curious none the less

That course is already full of long hikes ... another across the car bridge shouldn't be that big of a deal.

What about I think it is hole 13 you have to cross a tree that has fallin to get to the pad over a little creek any thoughts on a small bridge there. I mean that craoosing is like crossing over to hole seven at camden back in the day.

actually if you walk to the right a little ways, the jump isnt very big you can just cross over...

I don't know that short pin placement on 10 might fall in the water we might want to move it. :roll:

How's that for aiding a rec players concern? Poop4you!!!

I think he's gone. I can't wait till the next time I'm in town to play this course. All the talk about it is getting me stoked. I've heard/read nothing but great things.

Jay, it's the best course in the Quad Cities. And what kills people is the longest holes aren't even my favorite ones. It's the shorter ones where you have to actually THINK <gasp> about where you're going to throw your shot and how hard. There are more holes like that out there than any other course in the area. Also, the greens are pretty tricky on a ton of holes.

I realize not all of the pin positions are in the ground yet, but I still have trouble believing a 1000+ rated player is going to shoot 5 up there. As it stands, only one hole is a par 5 (hole 8). But every other hole out there is 3-able. Obviously, I'm not talking about EVERY time, but I've three'd every hole out there except hole 8 and I SUCK. So once the long placements all go in, then I'll take all this back, I'm sure, but I can't see a couple placements being moved 50-75 feet adding a whole stroke in alot of places.

But challenge-wise, it's top notch. It's also fair. If you keep it in the fairway (which oddly enough, is the idea in this sport), you're going to shoot fine. If you get gutsy, it could pay off or it could screw you. On top of these two things, it's freakin FUN. Each hole, you'll step on the tee and go, now this is a sweet hole.

Jay, I can't wait to hear your take on this course when you play it. And when you do, keep in mind, someone on the forum - won't mention any names - said it's a lefty course. Go back and find out who it is so you can sock 'em in the eye. Yes, there are MORE holes for a lefty than any other QC course, but I still wouldn't say you're going to adopt this course as a lefty-FRIENDLY course. You will like it though.
