Thanks Kevin, I have to say that Herz-bob had a ton to do with the final design. It may have been impossible to complete the design in one day by myself. I had one idea then Ryan suggested another and low-and-behold some of them worked perfectly. Mitch and ChimChim helped with the last few holes while we were playing it and the current course is just as you say. I loved your comment on the "out-of-breath" walk.

Justin, did you take any images of holes 15 - 19? High resolution images can be sent to me so I can keep all the images the same sizes. Also, take a look at the images I have posted so far and make sure they are correct. Ryan Bauer took the images and I think some got messed up on holes 6 - 8.

Ryan "ChimChim" Bauer and Mitch Sylvain also played a round there and helped finalize a few of the last remaining details. Bring a drink or two, you'll be on the course longer than a half hour or so :-D It all started last fall. Through Ryan Herzog I was contacted by Andy Moore who is a Rotary in Grayling. They wanted to install a course on the Hanson Hills site and asked if I would shoot on up there to help design it. They sent me some preliminary maps and I began to sketch up the layout eve ... more
