    Yes, Scott. A little bit.
    I'm sure it is. Even mini-golf is fun. I'm just not a big fan of birdie-or-die courses.

    • Tee signs. Baskets. Frisbees. What's not to like? Not every course has to be Milo-esque. Mix the little one with the bigger one and it is a great day. You should try it some time... you know... BEFORE disparaging it. Benson it is not.
      ďI believe I can hit 18 greens, hit every fairway, you know ó Vision 54, which means you birdie every hole, thatís in the back of my mind. I want to putt better, chip better. That day when I hit 18 greens and one putt, Iíll know Iím a complete golfer. Will that ever happen? Iím not sure, but itís possible. The 54 vision is always in the back of my mind.Ē

        I don't consider it a birdie or die course, because it's likely you won't care if you birdie or not. This course is not about competition at all. It's a walk in the park with a beer and a frisbee. For many, this type of experience is a reminder of why they started playing.

        The Highland course by itself is not a destination course for experienced players. But it is an awesome addtion to the Canyon course and the yet to be named ass-kicker course. I think it's a great warm-up for the other course(s) and I can't think of a better place to introduce new players to the sport.

        You really should give it a try.

          Just wait until I beat you head to head. It will happen. Someday. Somewhere.






















          I can't wait.

            Hear hear. Both of these.

            (The problem with it as an intro to new players is its distance from town. You gotta hope your beginners won't mind while you play at least one round on the big course!)

              THAT would be any hole Scott is playing.

                • For the record, I don't like the short course. I played it with Tim Price and quickly got bored and lost interest in even trying to play well (this from a guy who runs a weekly at Orchard!)

                  However, its baskets seemed much better than on the original course... they seemed to catch way better and more consistently.

                    There is an additional set of chains, and they go deeper into the basket. Bob has expressed interest in modifying/adding chains to the basket on the original course at some point.

                    • Wow I had a great weekend of golf! I've been in a bit putting slump the past couple weeks so I've been kind of down on my game. I went and worked on putts Friday evening and felt like I got into a pretty good groove.

                      On Sat I sot my personal best of -8 at Leverich.

                      Sunday morning I took a friend of mine who has only played a couple times to Orchard to let him check out the course. During that round I aced hole 6 with a Teebird. I was already pretty stoked about my weekend at this point. In the afternoon I meet Gilmore at Horning's for a couple rounds. The first round I was over par but on the second I shot 44 (-10 all par 3s).

                      I also got to witness part of Haley Konrad's round where she shot a -3 at Horning's which may be the womans record.


                      Beautiful weather and great golf make for an awesome weekend.

                        Keys and Gilmore together again. you guys should team up for Worlds doubles. you would make Oregon Proud.
                        Nice job Keys. people would poo themselves if they knew how long you have been playing and how rediculous you can shoot. It gives me hope. Keep it up dawg. the sky's the limit

                        • I thought James Moore shot -12 playing all par 3's but may be wrong???

                          • I shot a PB of -5 (49) at the Horning's Hideout Canyon Course today; previous PB was -3. I birdied #s 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 12, 14, 15, & 17.

                            Highlights were parking #2 eight feet to the right of the basket, and finally getting a drive to slide INTO the trees on #17 and then sinking the long putt for 2. (Lowlights were whacking a tree on #9 and a crappy 3rd shot on #18.)

                            • I just dropped a -3 down on Dexter for a personel best. The sad part is I was -6 with 4 holes to go.

                              • Jamie shot a 112 for 27 at Milo on Monday. We played the Genius hole so par is 91. 21 over might not sound like much... if you have never been there. For a woman on those monstrous holes, however, it was awesome to watch. The birdie on hole 18 was definitely the highlight.
