I'm sorry, but the new 16 white is impossibly duecable (for most people). Unless you get a miraculous/accidental roll over to the basket,this is a challenging par3, if not- par4 hole.
OKAY- IF you can throw a 500ft bomb, then it MIGHT be deucable.

Mike, not sure I understand. You say 16 white "has no challenge anymore" yet you note that it is a tough hole for you with three different options off the tee. I think this hole invites you to try and crush it for a deuce but that can get you in trouble. For the AM2/AM3 level player they should be trying to play smart and take the three and move on. Playing smart means throwing a good drive in the fairway then parking the upshot. Is the hole deucable? I say it is, but going for that deuce involves some risk/reward.

depends on how I land. There is usually a small gust or a breeze that rolls right off the lake & down into that valley. Since being backed up (and having to fight more wind) I am having to play to the right a bit banking on that breeze pushing me left a bit. I just try to play the straight shot to the pin for the follow up....so boring. I have no problems taking the bogey, because that is my fault for not playing better. On average, this hole is too generic. Shot straight and then shot straight again.

Was going to play Chuck D Red Tee's this past Sunday, but the wife needed some help around the house & shiz so I was unable to make it out as planned. I will try and make it out this week and review it for you guys. Played the Whites on Saturday though with the family in tow. I am finally getting used to the new tee placements except for hole 16. I am sorry, but I absolutely loath hole 16 now. It used to be much more fun playing from the previous spot. Taking the drive shot that far back is ... more

I am sorry, but I absolutely loath hole 16 now. It used to be much more fun playing from the previous spot. Taking the drive shot that far back is, IMHO, ridiculous. You either have to crush to straight down and pray you miss the bushes/clump of trees directly in front of you, thread it on the left side towards the left hand break, or play it far right & go for a straight shot to the pin. All of the other holes are such a challenge, but hole 16 has no challenge anymore since you have mainly three choices to shot for. If you can crush it, your fine, but the average player will just grumble & moan on this hole because you will either land in the rough to the left or get tied up in the trees in front of you. I know it was moved because players were shooting too far into the fairway on 13. Should be playing from the blacks if that is the case.

White tee signs are being installed today and should be all in by Wednesday.
Red tee on hole 16 has been moved up for a different line at the basket.
Thanks Brandon for the feedback, we moved #18 back to provide more of a challenge. Why would you like to see it moved back?
Brandon LaVigne November 4, 2010 at 6:55pm
I vote for the red tee on 18 to be moved to where the white tee used to be.

Saw Scott's Round Comments for the Red Tee's last night. My buddy didn't even know Independence was around the corner, so I'm dragging him there this weekend after we knock out Bandemer. I have played the Red's, but haven't even really thought of reviewing them. So I can help provide some feedback after this weekend if the Park is looking for some. Might be a crappy weekend weather wise, but I still plan on making it out.

@ Brandon.....That's because when you tell people to look out for flying discs, they think you are talking about UFO's :P
Brandon LaVigne October 26, 2010 at 2:04am
Every time I try to warn people on the picnic course about the flying discs and to "keep an eye out from up there where the tee is that people are throwing from", the people always look at me with their mouth open like I'm crazy or like I just spoke in a foreign language or they just start walking away while I'm in mid sentence lol
