Valley is much more fun, Kaposia is overrated, esp without the temp holes they use for the Majestic

I've only played North Valley before the Changes they made last year, but from what I've heard its pretty sweet now. They removed 7 holes from the old layout, combing 3 of them and adding 4 new ones. The Pay to Play money is going to good use at The Valley. Kaposia, although challenging, is still a dump.

When was the last time you played? When i was there last summer, it looked like they were gearing up to do some major work.

North Valley was great before the change, Id love to see it now. Its a course that would be right up your alley, Stiers.

Any reviews on white bear? I don't feel like melting @ elm and brp isn't as fun solo for that drive. Is there any shade cover @ wb lake?

White Bear is almost half in the woods now. It's hole balance and terrain is similar to Oakwood if you've played it.

Played elm creek 2nite cuz I had to go to maple grove anyway. Loved it. Could be tougher but great use of the land. Love that it's 50/50 anny/hyzer shots. No preferential treatment for righty/lefty's. Bumped into john drummond and timmy gill. John was cool as shit.

Chuck- timmy said to get off the computer and get out and play some more

Either gonna hit hyland for leagues tomorro, wb lake, or brp with my buddy. We shall see. And just for corey I'm gonna hit n valley on the way outta town on thursday ;)

I want to get out to play but my doc doesn't suggest it with heat indexes over 100. Might have played States and WB Open this past weekend if weather better. We even practiced Crown a few days before the States course was switched twice to baking on Hyland hill.

No time for valley this trip. Ill hit it on the way into town on my next visit in about a month r so. Might stop @ quick round in albert lea or some dink town on the way home. Depends on when I get done working.

Chuck, we'll have to meet up for a round next time. You've done a great job with the courses in the area. I am jealous I don't get spoiled like this @ home.

If you're coming in a month or so, time it so you can enter the Global event at The Valley on Aug 20-21.

Albert lea=stupid. Nice lil course, decently taken care of other than the 6ft tall weeds that line each hole. Every hole is a buzz except for maybe 2 of them. Pretty much the same hole 18 times with little difference. Thought I parked a few just to walk up to the basket and have 6ft tall weeds literally 5 ft from the basket. F'n lost 2 brand new discs. TRIM UP THAT CRAP. Its completely stupid and serves no purpose other than pissing people off. I won't be back,

Lost an opto havoc on 18 deep right and a z force on 2 midway left. And found a dx dragon(WTF!) that I gave to a kid.

I've lost more plastic on this trip in 5 days than I've lost in the last 3 yrs combined.
