Is the branch on 11 still there? Going out around 12 today and will take the saw if needed.

That'd be nice. I've landed behind that branch 3 times in the last week.

Probably Stiers, the tee pad needed leveled and boarded in.

went and played yesterday, I would think my only complaints would be not knowing where one was..We just played the hole that had the plaque saying 2 into the woods then walked to the top of the hill where there is a piece of plywood saying 2 and then went into the woods and followed it the best we could.. found all of the holes...told by locals there is no 8 and 9 and the signs face odd ways(not the way you shoot) would be a very confusing course for someone that doesnt play a lot......Hole 7...Who the hell is the mastermind on that? lmao...I mean it worked for me just an easy thumber, parked and actually rolled and hit the pin, Never play that hole without a spotter. Fun hole though. Besides the signs and extra tee pads around, and the oddly placed hole going right through power towers it was good. Also I didnt understand the fact that its OB under the tower(assuming they dont want us playing under it) on like 15 I think I dunno w/e hole that was.....But then the final hole's teepad is right under a tower...Confused me. Very creative..Just confusing.

The OB you are talking about is only used in tournaments.

The signs will be fixed by next spring before the LOD. It's tough to keep the signs in order when the last three years the course has changed each year due to flood, trail or erosion. The city is very easy to work with and will allow us to add 3 new holes over the winter to make 21 holes.

awesome, i can't wait. the signage is the only real issue plus 3 more holes will make the course even better for an afternoon of dg. i've came across a few teepads currently not in use and my friends would tell me about what bitchin holes they used to be. would love to volunteer my time for this course

Course is a little messy. Tees 2, 3, 8, 10, and 13 short are covered.
