Just don't get it

I have played this course so many times and each time I play it I think I am going to change my mind about it. For the amount of land and space there it is argualbly one of the worst courses around. Weird angles from the tees, tree's in the middle of the fairway, good shots just get shot down all the time, and just overall is not that much fun to play. I get so frustrated with this course and think there is so much potential for it to be a very good course.

the first time i played shaver i vowed never to come back. it took me 3 years to do so. now that i've played it a million times i love it. it's not my type of course, it's a finesse course not a bomber. you gotta find the line and hit it every time or you will pay dearly. there are some ridiculous holes that should get thinned out. but i'm not gonna be the 1 to do it (opie and mc). i have shot 3 down and the next round shot 13 up. or vise versa. it's a good equalizer course to play with people that are alot better than i am so the scores stay close 2 each other. i have definitely left that place very pissed off many times. but i still come back.

I've always enjoyed Shaver. It's tough to get someone to want to play there when I'm in town, because there are other courses they'd rather play. I wish I got to play it on a more regular basis. It definately makes you throw your best shots, and even then, you will be robbed from time to time.

I remember the Halloween Havoc doubles tournament that you guys used to have there back till like 2000 or 2001. I still have the DGCR mini baskets that my partner and I won in the raffle way back when.

That's what I'm talking about. When you play the course a lot that time to time turns into often.

I think 1, 2 and 8-18 are fine these days. It's just that 3-7 you can really get shot down and/or roll away on good shots. Then it happens a couple times in a row through there and your patience gets really tested.

agree, wish 18 was in its original spot. now it plays like Rosedale in KC. huge bomb and good shot= 90 foot upshot and really no chance at 2 but easy three as long as your drive is straight.

Best course for me can't throw that far. But like stires says scores stay a little closer.

that's a sign of a bad course if luck, not skill, is the determining factor in a score.

Skill may be indistiguishable from luck by those less skilled.

I've always loved Shaver. We used to play there ahead of Legion. BUT I'm also one of those players that benefits from others getting screwed. "ha ha ha, suckers."

No if you play it enough you will hit the holes more. All courses can't be grip it and rip it kinda courses. Maybe around the mississippi you can grip it and rip it.
