Maybe also a sign that says "NO SLIPPING AND TURNING YOUR ANKLE AFTER CRUSHING YOUR DRIVE INTO THE LAKE".

Big fan of the huge, trapezoidal, rough-textured teepads. Also a fan of the short teepad locations.

I got a chance to play the shorts for the first time today. I'd say it cuts about 15 strokes off your score, and as Chad said, probably saves around 45 minutes. They're cleverly designed to save a strokes-worth of length from most holes while remaining challenging and keeping the feel of West Lake. I probably won't play them again on my own, just because you still have to walk the length of the course and deal with the water, may as well get your money's worth. But it is an awesome option to have for beginners, and should be great for tournaments. Overall, they were well thought out and do the course justice, which says a lot. Great job, Chad.

Hole 7's short, while half the length, is probably twice as hard. I'm not sure what the line is there... a nose-up sky hyzer? Forehand roller? That was the only alternate that felt unimpressive. Just an odd hole. Most impressive were 1, 3, 5, 18, 21, 23. Those last ones were the best and they really help take the sting out of that backside.

Holes without short teepads: 2, 8, 10, 11, 17, 22

Glad you liked them, Kepp. I'm finishing the official scorecards which will be printed with the ball golf score cards in the next couple of weeks. They look pretty good.

I'm also getting the finishing touches on the tee signs which should also go in shortly. Thanks for everyone's patience.

The teepads at West Lake are awesome. I wonder how long they are?

I think most of the tee pads are 12 feet and the longer ones are 14 feet long.

Smalls, try throwing a high forehand hyzer around the tree with something over stable. As it flattens out, it will carry far left and end up near (or in) the basket. I've shown Robinson that shot. My lack of racism allowed me to park it (and subsequently miss the birdie putt - ha ha ha).

I've had success with a flippy forehand roller. Do you mean forehand anhyzer?

Thanks Chad. Hope the Cities are treating you well.

Hole 5's long tee pad is all but gone. Are we going to use the shorts for the Rumble?

Just got off the phone with the ranger, and they're going to put down some gravel to level it out. We'll top it off with a Fly Pad.
