Eng and I agreed. I don't think K.C. did though (I don't remember exactly what he said when we talked about it). The only thing I didn't like about it being there was it would add another RHBH anhyser shot; then we'd have 13, 14, and 15 all playing that way.

I DID like the anhyzer shot idea, I really did. But, it just didn't make all that much sense.

If you put the tee pad on the right hand tree line, you're either...
...making it really long, which makes it a straight/hyzer and then up-shot to 99.9% of the population anyway, and the further back you go...the closer you are to the people playing safe on 12 (and A LOT of people end up over there).
...or, you're making it a shorter ani, which is actually a pretty cool hole, but then you're walking 350 ft. to get there.

Sorry, it just made more sense to put it there.

Played the new tees first time this morning. Big improvement to the course! Thanks to those who worked on this.

I am willing to help do the digging to move 15 basket further west sometime. There is a nice wide open spot to add 150 ft to the hole.

It was all City of Davenport. They even put mulch in around the baskets and all the tee pads.

Right now there's a major revamp happening on the parking lot and a re-route of the bike path.

BIG props to them!
