Course Tips

Postby calvarycoffee » Wed Sep 13, 2006 11:53 pm

Those that are new to the course will find no Tee pads for numbers 1, 8, and 9

Here are the locations of the Tees:

#1 begins at the top of the stairs (straight South). Use the light color cement as the Tee's edge

#8 is at the Yellow Parking curb next to the pond (throw over the pond to the furthest basket)

#9 Use the sewer manhole next to basket #8 ( the old tee is the dirt patch west of the #8 basket - we don't use this because now there is a new basketball complex in the way and this can get full of people)

also: #6 local players tee up for this by the Gazebo. This shot goes over the road, so use caution
---

Tips:

- the wind usually blows North to South
-grass is contantly mowed (short)
-a lot of goose poop! (watch were you step)
-a lot of pedestrians (watch were you throw)

Good post. I wasn't aware that the tee for #9 had moved to the manhole cover. I have still been teeing off from the patch of dirt. What kind of a shot does the new tee present? Is it a straight shot at the basket? Distance-wise is it about the same length as the old tee?

I threw a round with some locals once and we teed off from the gazebo for #6. It's a cool shot but I thought for sure I would be the one to hit a car on the road. I actually like where the tee is for #6 but I really hate having to backtrack down the entire length of the fairway that you just got done playing.

#9
the sewer tee is about 15ft shorter than the dirt tee. the wind is more troublesome from the sewer tee, it seems (or that may just be me).

Also there are 6 backboards that come into play from the old tee.

from the sewer, it is a wide open shot.

I've played this course at least two dozen times. What is the par for each hole.?

locals play par 3 for each hole.
-----
but, one could make a case for "recreational" par- those holes over 300ft could be considered par 4's

so holes #4, #7, #9, and original #6 would be par 4's

I haven't come across anyone who advocates par 4's at this course, though. All our leagues play par 3's.
