The new tee pads are great. Nice job with placement and most are wide enough, long enough and level enough. Any slight imperfections give the locals the minor advantage we need and deserve.

Hole 8 is our attempt at an homage to Hudson Mills. Many of the holes have short and long tees directly in front of each other. That said, this one turned out a little closer than I had envisioned, although there is a 30 ft. difference from front to front of the pads.

even new and dirty, i think the pads are amazing, but dont understand why there are two on hole eight when you can jump from one to the other.
aside from the pad changes the overall course cleanup including trimming and bridge work is top notch.
it would be nice to have a window to the pin from the right white pad on seven.

Black tee discussion:
We did change 18 but the overall effect I think is a wash since we moved both the basket and tees back. 15 was made longer so will that mean less deuces? probably. 7 and 8 were both made longer, not by much though. Agreed that the consistent surface of a concrete pad will shave a few strokes off the typical round. We also have a very dry (no ponds on 6 and 16) and more cleared out course so the net effect I think is a few strokes better than it was at some point say the middle of the summer 2010.

exactly what Jim says, even with cement the white layout is tougher, the black was maybe 1 stroke tougher due to new #16 but with cement, erases that maybe makes it 0.5-1 stroke easier
Jim Daniels October 11, 2010 at 1:31pm
agree that the whites are harder, I think the blacks are easier only because there are now cement tees which really help on full power drives. I think the Black tees overall are slightly more difficult than the course config of a year ago but the value of the cement tees overcomes that.

agree with the fact that whites are now harder.....haven't played blacks to know if second part is also true
Daemon Stahlin October 11, 2010 at 10:57am
so it seems like white tees are harder than the old shorts and black tees are easier than the old longs. agree/disagree?
