    There's still a chance we may do the Yauger Bomb on Saturday instead on SS, but we will most likely try to stay in Shelton.
    There is free camping available at Ronnie Bolan's house, he has 5 acres with a bunch of baskets. He is about 15 mins from Yauger and about 35 mins from Shelton Springs.

      That sounds tempting too. Do you know if I need to bring my own zip ties or will they be provided and installed on my tent free of charge?

        Hey Morgan and MaCo company,
        In preperation for the TeamDG finals I went and played a round of black and red each yesterday. Such a beautiful course. Great Job!

        I know I am a week ahead of myself here, but a couple questions:
        1) Have you decided on a format for next sunday? Red in the Morning, Black in the afternoon? Something similar?

        2) I am not looking for the official SSA or anything(although an SSA rating would be cool) but can you give a little local insight into what is a good score on red and black?

        I played Red first blindly and shot a 60. Not sure I can improve much on that score even after I knew what I was doing.

        Played Black immediately afterward and was a little tired. I shot a 72. That round I could look back and count 4 or 5 strokes I am pretty sure I could improve on right away just from the mistakes in "placement" and "disc choice" I made from not knowing the course.

        I also got creative on a few holes since there were puddles on the dirt tee pads. Since I did not have better footwear I chose to tee off behind or next to the actual teebox.

        I am so looking forward to the 10th when I can play this beautiful course again!! Great job Mason County peeps!!

          I can only imagine the zip ties are included in the stay!

            We have not decided on the layout out instinct is to go Red morning then Black but since it is the final I am pushing for BLACK, BLACK. If someone really wanted to check out the red course which does play different they can always come back. Chris what are you thoughts on BLACK, BLACK for the 10th?

            So as far as the SSA goes I would guestimate 59-60 on the Blacks. This is based on data from last year there have been a number changes though so it is hard to say for sure. Best round to date that I know of is a 57. From the Reds 56-50 under is a decent score with the hot rounds coming in at 49 and under.

            FYI:
            Blacks Par 63
            Reds Par 60

              Well if you want my opinion I thought the Black tees favor a left hander over a right hander. (much more than the red tees do). Not sure if others feel the same way...
              That would make me want to lean toward a round of each to keep things more balanced.
              Then again I am a little biased since there is a pretty good lefty on the opposing team for the finals(TB!).
              No matter what happens, I am really looking forward to playing the course again!

                Finally got a chance to play and review the course on dgcoursereview. Wow! I was very impressed by how well thought out this course was. An instant favorite. Thanks to MCDG and everyone else who helped put this gem on the map!

                    Im a fan of adding the red course into the mix, if nothing else than to show off the "whole" course. That being said, the hosting captain has final say as to which layout/ course's are used.

                        It was the least I could do. I feel there is still room to grow and yet it already is one of the better courses in the state.
