I myself think that the larger tee pads are very impressive. Nothing better than going to the best course in town and not having a mudd hole in front of every tee.

This is a great course, I do agree with what Chase is saying on the tee pads being flat. But not so flat or shooth that they look like #8 @ Middle. ICE.

I am only going to briefly go into this.

Chris S. was saying that Marshall St. has colored spots on the course, that if you are on the tee pad and are playing a blind hole, you can look at the tee sign and see a actual picture of the pin from the "colored" spot of your landing zone. You would see a dot of color on the edge of the fairway, the tee sign would have those samo dots. By the colored dots you would see what you would be looking at if you landed there. So in or on the edge of the fairway there would be dots of color and on the tee sings there would be dots with pictures next to them that would give you a view of the pin if you were to place your shot at that spot.

Get it? I hope. now roll with it.

I agree, the MS sign design would be awesome for this course. Essentially, it's an extra picture that says if you're standing here (at a point up the fairway), this is what your view is, so you don't have to walk up to that point to actually look. Little things like that separate the great from the outstanding. Be creative.

The only way to avoid mud spots at the end of the tees is to mulch. I don't give a shit if they're 40 feet long for the likes of Clark and the Legend's 360 Somersault runups, people throw when they get to the end of the tee, period, and some people follow through off the end, and inevitably the grass will wear there.

WORD!!!
Save some cash on crete and put in normal trapazoid pads; just keep up on maintanence and it should be golden.

As far a my suggestions for the upcoming tee pads at West Lake, and this is from a newbie.

REAM US!

From what I have played of the course so far it has been a royal b-slap and I like it. Don't dumb it down for the general public keep it as mean as possible.

The chuckers will stay in town keep this place as something special.

I LOVE hearing this from new players, and have a feeling Chad will as well. There will have to be some not-as-challenging tees offered, but Covey, with your attitude it wont matter. What your saying is EXACTLY why this course is going to build the QCs a Champion! Im glad to hear you like getting your ass handed to you. Your destined to be a good player, so keep it up. You only learn when your getting the crap beat out of you by a superior course. All my favorite courses murdered me the first few times I played them, thats the attraction.
