Say something ...lost favorite star teebird in 13's pond......choice from my bins for its safe return.

Thanks, Peter. I expected #2 to maybe not be as well liked by most people who may post scores on here, but still the vast majority of people coming through each day are casuals and they wanted a little shortening up, it makes a more interesting hole for most of them. It's mainly for winter- those cold windy snow days it will be nice to have a break from a long shot. C, 12 and maybe 5 may get short pin placements in the future, to be rotated.

first impressions of new holes/ pins
#2 pin: from shorts I prefer the old location, as it was extremely rare to duece. Now it should be much easier to bang a 2 on hole 2. Think it will play better at new pin from longs. At the very least it should offer no benefit to playing #3's fairway.
C pin/ basket: finally back! glad to have a basket again......I like how it is closer to ob. plays easier for hyzer gap from whites.
X1 and X2.....nice tight, accuracy needed wooded holes.....just what this course needed!! glad to see the renovations!!!

Hole #2 is in the short position for the winter, enjoy. Tee signs not updated, it is 80ft. shorter, easy to spot can't miss it.
Ben Calhoun November 22, 2012 at 6:33pm
You'll like it Wade. The people want short holes they can birdie. There is room for both a long tee on X1, and a long pin straight ahead instead of slight left. At 20$ a pop, I plan to add a few more alt. pin placements next year, this is the place to do it.

That will hurt someone's average though Wade
Wade TF November 22, 2012 at 6:22pm
But Dan is right we did a lot of work to make sure it was over 300
Wade TF November 22, 2012 at 6:21pm
Yes please make it longer. Supposed to be a tough roc shot well over 300. As long as the course gets to 36 holes soon I guess I dont care
Daniel J Lee November 22, 2012 at 9:04am
Whoa. What? That hole was supposed to be like 380
Ben Calhoun November 22, 2012 at 7:59am
Trust me you'll dig it. Room for alt. pin for straight hole, or long tee closer to X's tee.
Wade TF November 21, 2012 at 10:06pm
I hope you are going to use that hole along Y I spent a lot of time on that one. Dan did too.
Ben Calhoun November 21, 2012 at 6:29pm
I hope to get the next 2 layed out and ready to be clear cut pretty soon, looking at a possible 350' tough birdie straight hole and a 400-500' par 4 2 stage hole, tying in with hole W or 14.

Thanks calhounaburger!!! Placement on hole c is better and 2 extras are ill . Thanks ron howard and calhouny for ur hard work! All 30 holes was pleasure to play

- Hole C is back in - Hole #2 has a short pin position- it is not in yet- should be switched soon. They will rotate. Will work on a system for noting on the tee sign which position it is in. Very easy to see once it is- new placement is just over old golf green, about 90 ft shorter and a few feet left. - New holes X1 and X2 (part of the Woods expansion) are in. They have no cement or tee post just flagged until spring at least. There is a path behind X to X1 tee. X2 is back and to left of X1, ... more

X2 is back and to left of X1, shooting back toward X1 tee. After X2, cross over X1 to play hole Y. X1- 265', X2- 200' estimated. Please use caution on few fairways- still have stumps, roots, etc.
