  • A few more trees thinned out on Meadow Ridge, New tee signs for Highland

    Recent trees: one on hole 1, one on hole 3, two on hole 8, three small ones on hole 9, one on hole 12, and one on hole 11. Also trimmed up branches on hole 17 and 18. These trees were recommended by a group of pros that has been playing here for while. Hole 9 plays differently, for I limbed up about 20 ft of limbs, so now it's a very tight against the trees hard right turn. We'll now play this for a while to see how it plays.

    Highland course now has the good tee pad signs, so now all courses have professional signage up.

    Glad to hear you cleared out a couple holes. I played the course with Mike Phillips a couple weeks ago. I thought the course was really fun. I'll have to make it out there sometime soon again. Maybe this coming Friday.

    Have you given any thought to Mike's number scrable? I can't remember the specifics, but it was a suggestion to renumber a couple holes there in the middle to help with flow and reduce crossovers. When Mike explained it to me it sounded like a good idea.

    Thanks,
    Sean
    Nothing like a number scramble was mentioned to me, and not sure how that could work out?

    I've played that hole twice now and a roller seems like the best throw there. That hole isn't that hard, there is no need to thin the fairway.

    Only knowing that hole from the picture above, it seems like taking that tree out would make the fairway "too" open and a lot less interesting.

    The problem is that the basket is pretty far to the right. The best drive would be a strong turnover shot straight up the middle... right where that tree is. If you throw right of the tree, there's other trouble, and left of the tree means you might not get enough turnover to get there.

    I actually think that's one of the best holes on the course, as is. Forcing a turn over, lefty hyzer, or forehand for a righty up the left gap makes the hole pretty amazing. Also the gap that is there...is plenty fair.

    It's right straight down the middle! It's a disc magnet!

    This is the tree on #2 that I want to see die:
    Strange, no one else has mentioned that tree , it must have just your name on it!

    Of course! When I first made the course there were several trees that were questionable, so I left them up, since it is easier to take them out than to stand one back up. As the course has been played the trees that were suspect to begin with did prove to be culprits in unduly stopping a fair throw, so the sentence of removal was carried out
