Jeff, Kel, Chris and I went out and played today and I had a couple of comments about the course.
1. The flow is better but I still think the walk from 6-7 is huge and not obvious without a map or signs. I would personally make hole 2---> hole 1, and then hole 1 would be hole 6. The initial walk to the starting hole which would be the current hole 2 is the largest walk but then the flow from 6 to tee one makes more sense then 6 to 7. Trails are being created from the current basket to the next tee but in some cases it was difficult to figure out were to go and we had to refer to the map on our phone. After the first round it was more obvious.
2. We had a lot of nasty spit outs on the baskets today. Several times the chains would part and putters would hit the pole and then come back out. When we looked at the chain configuration it appears to either be set up to allow the pole to be exposed on certain angles or the added chains were not installed with the idea of closing off gaps to the pole. I can see this being a really big issue when the wind is really blowing and you have to putt hard to get the putter solid into the chains. Have a look at the added chains when you are out there and see if it makes sense to you.
It was a beautiful day out there today and again not very much wind. I think the temp hit in the 60's out there as we were all over dressed and warm throughout the two rounds that we played.
