WL18 Configuration

WL18 Configuration

Postby KePP » Thu May 17, 2007 9:12 am

Need to shave 30-45 minutes off your round? I had this problem last night, so I looked into a few different configurations for 18 holes. For reference, the full 24 hole course is 10,869' with an average of 453' per hole.

CONFIG 1 (WL18 - 9119' - avg. 506')
Skips 6-12. You lose a lot of birdie opportunities (305, 342, 275, 315, 237, 187, 564).

Hole 1 – 432’
Hole 2 – 265’
Hole 3 – 423’
Hole 4 – 338’
Hole 5 – 826’ (Dam)
- - Safari 6 to 7 – 475’ ("Horseshoe" - mando toward 6's basket)
Hole 13 – 870’ (Dam)
Hole 14 – 333’
Hole 15 – 856’ (Backstop)
Hole 16 – 470’
Hole 17 – 265’
Hole 18 – 780’ (Dogleg Tunnel)
Hole 19 – 230’
Hole 20 – 514’
Hole 21 – 642’
Hole 22 – 365’
Hole 23 – 565’
Hole 24 – 470’


CONFIG 2 (WL18 - 9065' - avg. 504')
Park by 8's basket using Gate 1 entrance, start on 9. Skips 7 & 8 (342, 275), 19 (230 along the water), 22 & 23 become a safari (365, 565), 24 & 1 (470, 432).

Hole 9 – 315’
Hole 10 – 237’
Hole 11 – 187’
Hole 12 – 564’
Hole 13 – 870’ (Dam)
Hole 14 – 333’
Hole 15 – 856’ (Backstop)
Hole 16 – 470’
Hole 17 – 265’
Hole 18 – 780’ (Dogleg Tunnel)
Hole 20 – 514’
Hole 21 – 642’
- - Safari 22 to 23 - 875'
Hole 2 – 265’
Hole 3 – 423’
Hole 4 – 338’
Hole 5 – 826’ (Dam)
Hole 6 – 305'

I've been thinking about this lately too. For a tough 18 I'd play 1-5, then 6's tee to 10 or 11's basket, then 12-18, then 20-24.

I like that. I also wanted to include 12 but hadn't thought of ditching 19 for it.

Here is a suggestion for 18 holes for the handicap league:

skip 10, 11, 13, 19, 21, 22

Really this is just a discussion starter. Since handicap league is beginner-friendly, do we need to skip both 5 and 13? If so, skip that whole side? Another option is to skip 5, 6, 7, 13, 19, __ (24?).

Here is an idea, take it or leave it:

1, 2, 3, 4, 5a, 5b, 6, 7, 13a, 13b, 14, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23 (I still wish this was the finishing hole...)

***Take one temp basket and put it in the middle of the cement slabs. Use it to shorten up 5 and 13, if that is what everyone wants to do.

Or, you could just tell everyone to man up. :lol:

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9-11, 12, 13, 14, 17, 18, 20, 21, 22, 23

If this is supposed to be a league that is trying to attract new player to QC leagues there is no way that 5+13 should be in play. How much fun is it to throw discs into water that you have no chance of getting back? Yes, they are awesome holes; for pro players, but for the majority of the players in this league those holes will do nothing but discourage people. I know the upper echelon of players are going to say that we should play them both and give some sort of excuse that it will make you a better player, but I have never became a better player from losing a $16.00 driver, and I am sure that I speak for the majority of this league.

* Updated with John's feedback below (skips 5-7, 13, 21-22)

This layout gets rid of 5 & 13 and still has a nice course flow. Holes 6 & 7 are just regular holes that skip nicely to enhance the flow from 4 across the dam to 8. Holes 21 and 22 are both water holes and 21 often causes backups.

It's a bit of a trek from 4 to 8, but that could still work.

What about leaving 19 and 24 in and going from 20 to 23, bypassing 21 and 22?

Updated the map. Yep it is a long trek but its the same as 4 to 6. Heck, 4 to 5's teepad could be considered a trek, and that's before the 826' hole.

4's basket is one of my favorite places on this course, especially when you're with a first timer. You clear the basket and head toward the trail, then look back across the water and point out the next pin a quarter-mile across the lake.

:shock:

Kep, with non-disc golfers coming with me to camp & possibly play on Sept 8th, this layout ma be a little easier to do for me! LOL

Why play 20?

Why not go from 19 to 22?

That's a good suggestion. I think its 50/50. With 22 you get an extra water hole but an easier hole and a LOT less backtracking. With 20 you get a cool but difficult hole, no water, but extra backtracking and probably extra looking for discs.

After typing that out I would vote for your idea. I'll probably update the map later depending on other feedback.

Yeah, 20 can be difficult, and it does seem more direct to go to 22 from 19.

Leftys and forehand throwers will love both of those holes! :cry:h well.
