Legitimate runs at the strong side of chains caught nicely and putts even on weak side were surprisingly forgiving. This is not to say "spit outs" won't or can't happen, but in the two rounds I played in wet conditions neither Gary, Justin or I experienced a "that should have been in!" moment.
After the round we spent a few minutes driving discs into the basket to achieve a "nasty" spit out. A few times the disc bounced off of the pole and out, but on any basket there is going to be a pole in the middle to hit. To compare the baskets at pier, I'd say the overall condition and chain configuration is better. Justin changed the style to mimic the pier baskets on hole 18 and there was definitely more pole exposed.
At the end of the day the course is improved and continually doing so. Justin and CGDG have done massive amounts of work and it shows. Think how N. Bonneville was just one year ago.
Can't wait for the Slosh to begin and excited to see everyone out there!
P.S. Where are all the Lunchtime locals? Why haven't they signed up?
I'm a Lunchtime local, have signed up, and can't wait to take another shot at this course. Amnesia Open was the only time i have played this course, and am looking for redemption in back-to-back weeks. Team disc golf then the Slosh! Can't wait.
