    Yeah! Keep it! It should stay that way for a multitude of reasons that have been expressed on numerous threads in numerous ways, ad infinitum.

      I think that this is a much better hole than the old placement. It's safer, more difficult, and simply more fun. Plus, there is definitely an ace run just waiting to happen there.

        I did like the new longer position on hole 1 as well. I like the fact that there are 2 sleeves there which allow the hole to be changed up a bit on occasion which is always nice. If I had to pick just one position I would go with the newer longer one but prefer the idea of using both.

            I fully support the #1 changes. Adds difficulty without changing it up too much. The changes to #6 were a totally different story... All I can say is I'm glad the old is back.

              I definitely like not getting bombed on by the big turnover from 11. I also like the fact that there is really only one clear route and it's straight down there. There is a sidearm hyzer and a HUGE backhand hyzer line at it. Definitely not the way I'd play the hole though. I'm going to say as well that I really did enjoy hole 6 for the tournament. Was not as bad as everyone made it out to seem. I had an easy time carding the 3 and if I'd putted better that day, it was an easy 2.

                I concur...the old #6 (which is really the old #7) needs to remain. First time I ever hit a tree, during my very first round, was on old #7....good times.

                Now, let's start playing the old #8 backwards....but from the tee at the top of the hill. Yeah...get out the big sky-hyzer for that! HOOOAAHH!

                  Well everybody so far wants to keep the new change and yet it's back where it was.. I don't understand. Same with hole 11. 6 needs an ob line between 9.

                      Number one is back in the original position because it was a temporary change for the tournament.

                      I wouldn't want anyone saying that I was redesigning the course with out club approval.

                      As for number eleven, someone disliked it enough to tear large holes in a $125 rubber mat. So it's back where it was.

                      As is six.

                        You know, Bob, there's really only one particular person that would go so far as to accuse you of such a heinous act -- and he doesn't even like to play DR...oh, that's right...he doesn't like to play DR because you're always out there changing it silly me....
