Cool, I like courses like that. Kinda like Walnut? In lefty-friendliness, that is?

that's less than half. So it's pretty balanced apparently. You guys have to throw annys on more than 2-3 holes, and it's lefty friendly.

People say Walnut is lefty friendly, and I say it's pretty balanced, the two toughest holes on the course are 9 and 15, and one is kinda lefty friendly (9), and the other is righty friendly. The two deuce holes on the tough back nine ---11 and 14, are anything but lefty friendly. Unless you're Mr. Chad, and 9 is a deuce hole. :lol: I don't think anyone's ever dueced that hole before that. For those that don't know, he threw one in from somewhere near the short pad which I think is around 350ish. 2 on that hole is ridiculous. I 4'd it both rounds, and was real happy about that.

I happened to be on his card when he did it and I believe it was from a little bit behind the short tee. It may have been almost 50' from it.

I ALMOST agree with you Jeremy. And since I used the term "friendly" these are technically correct. As far as left ADVANTAGE holes, 1, 4, maybe 7 and definitely 17. By "advantage" I mean there is only a left to right route. A shot with a wide upen field in front of you with a basket on right to left sloping green isn't what I would call a real advantage. You still have 50 options to throw on the tee at that point.

So with Jeremy's list of holes, Jay's going to have an actual route to throw. On my list, Jay's going to have an advantage over a righty.

And Jay, I still love watching you throw into the water at west lake on the video. It never gets old, my friend. Never. You rule.

Finally played this course on Friday -- it's amazing!! Great job guys!

Combine this with West Lake and we definitely have the courses for an A-Tier!

Yeah, I've yet to see that too. Probably never will either, since Clark's fallen off the face of the earth.

I'll see if I can slap it up on a website somewhere. Clark made me a copy of the digital footage, so it should be pretty easy to put it up somewhere. I just have to edit it down. You'll appreciate it, all of you:)

Lefty friendly: VERY lefty friendly ( at least in the pins they are in now..)

1, 4, 5, 7, 9, 10, 12, 13, 17 .

Id say that 2 , 3, 6, 8, 11, 14, 15, 16 are pretty neutral.

I really dont think there are any biased righty holes. Some holes I think in the neutral category are actually easier with lefty hyser flips or S shots, but not enough to call them lefty friendly.

If your not left handed and cant throw straight, its going to be a long round.

Pretty decent course. I'm guessing the layout is a little different than it was at the time of the last posts on this thread. It is pretty lefty friendly on the more open part of the course, at least in the setup I played. I was +5 going into hole 16, the long downhiller that ends up at a missing basket by the ball diamond cage. It was dark, and the basket was not to be found. I checked out 17, and threw 18, to find that basket missing as well. They (16 & 18, or 15 & 17, depending on how you play the course)may have been there, but I couldn't find them, and I was with Rounds and Train, who have played the course only 2X.

I think I can tear that course a new asshole, once the signs are in, and I know how far to throw. The distances are a little deceiving on some holes, so eyeballing them, I overthrew a bunch of holes, which cost me several strokes.

I like it though.

I forgot to mention that on hole 18 (or 1, 1st hole I played) I chained out a skipper. If it had stayed, I probably would've left. :lol:

My $.02 - --------

Front side is good.

The wooded holes need cleaned up, and the "dumb" placements should never be used in a major event. They were ok for yesterdays shindig.

The only thing that comes to mind is hole 16, the straight (first round) placement is SICK! great hole. the second round placement, not so much.

Also, hole 17 has a downed tree in front of it. Clean that up and it's good to go.

Oh, now I remember, 500 feet is NOT a good distance for a disc golf hole. Boring boring boring. Think 9 short and 4 longest.

Other then that, great park and challenging golf.

#16 was in the long first round and in the middle second, don't know why, but it will be in the good placement for the Rumble. 17 will be cleaned up, but that's not the long placement, so it really doesn't matter. 500ft holes are good for the game, because they create par 5's which are appropriate to the way golf is played. They make you think 2 shots ahead. Also, can you clarify "dumb" placements? I'm just curious which ones you didn't like. I imagine 14 is one of them.
