13. Keep it in the long for two reasons. 1...it makes you throw an EXTREME hyzer or skip shot that you (probably) have not thrown yet in the round, and is a very complicated line. 2...less chance of hitting someone on the tee for 14.


by very complicated you mean throw into a bunch of scattered trees?

You mean there are trees in a forest? There IS a line there. If you didn't/don't see that...well, maybe that points out why you do so much better with a partner! :lol: :lol:

I'm not like you K.C., I can actually make the disc go in a straight line.....sometimes.


Just because there is space between trees, doesn't make it a viable line.

The line is there, and it IS viable. Its not easy, thats for sure...but you're a pro, aren't you? And hell, you're sponsored by the stablest plastic out there...this hole shouldn't bother you all that much. Now, if you were a lefty, I could see your point more.

Next time we're out, I want you to WALK through the "line" I'm supposed to be throwing.

I'll just call it the poke'n'hope. Fire away and hope you miss. No line and also no real clear line on 13 in the long. I think the drives could be nice with a few tree's in the middle of the fairway being removed.
Also, I would STRONGLY suggest marking and making it very clear what is OB between 8 and 9. If not there may be some issues/problems at the Rumble. Overall, I thought the course is great. Take some of the constructive criticism people are talking about and maybe make a few adjustments.

I was thinking the same thing. Maybe just a ribbon or string down the middle on stakes.

Hole 8 long is the only par 5. That is, it's 1000 ft. a 4 is a birdie.

Hole 9 at 488 ft is boring boring boring. Throw a straight drive, throw a 100 ft upshot *yawn*. It doesn't matter since I'm sure itll be in the sick placement for the rumble.

Overall this course is a great addition to the QC portfolio. Now that I think about hole 4 in the long long, I guess the ob makes it somewhat viable. In doubles I didn't really notice, but in singles I'm sure I won't just unleash the wraith without considering the ob.

Chad and mike almost realized this the second round :oops:

Thanks for your input everybody (keep it coming).

Jeff and I walked the back yesterday, here's what we discussed.

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.

13 - Some more clearing for the left position. I like it the way it is now (when cleaned up) but I'll bend a bit to satisfy you babies. :D

14 - We'll be making the righty hyser route (that I took on Sunday) more pronounced because it's there.

Rumble Positions (with Eng's O.K. of course)

1, 2, 5, 6, 9, 10, 11, 13, 14, 15, 18 will stay as they played for Sunday's second round

3 - will go long and right, by the light pole

4 - I'm thinking about talking Eng into the Middle postion to bring dueces into play for the big arms

7 - probably in the yellow position if the blue is going to be a safety concern (the yellow is up the hill and short of the Sunday's second round blue postion)

8 - may go to the D position or stay where it is depending on what Eng wants

12 - probably the yellow position (Sunday's first round position)

16 - blue (Sunday's first round position)

17 - blue, whenever we figure out where exactly it is going and get it in the ground

I will be organizing work days shortly as there are literally days of work to be done in order to get this course A-Tier ready.

Well, all this friendly banter (some of it just dumb, cough, Mike, cough) is for naught as far as placement for the Rumble. Eng wants to do either all long or all short, and he's decided on all long (I know, can you imagine that from Eng, hahaha).

So...Dan, start your magic on those positions. And, for future reference for those that played:

1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7 (which I'll talk to Eng about, as this one is the only real safety concern), 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, and 18 were all in the longs the 2nd round.

13 and 16 were in the longs during the 1st round.

17's long is just sick, but not in the ground yet.

3's long is there, Dan just lost the key to that lock on Sunday.

Do you mean the "longest" postion or the blue postion (which is the "toughest" postion)?
