Hole 5) The pin placement is awesome!!!! Takes a good pop and a lot of control to get to this one. I am sure this hole will play a stroke harder in the new placement.
Hole 7) I use to throw a soft XD turnover to the old placement....now it is a slight hyzer with an overstable mid. Not a lot harder, but the roughness of the green will leave a lot of decent shots with a tough putt.
Hole 8) I think this hole is now easier. It use to be a touchy, speed control hole. Now I can swing easy with an XD right at it.
Hole 11) I didn't get this one figured out today. I think the play is a high, hyzer with a floaty midrange. Pretty technical shot.
Hole 12) Wow.......big changes here. What use to be the easiest hole on the course now plays at least a stroke harder. Seems like a hard hyzer with a skip at the end is the play.
Hole 13) Didn't think this placement makes the hole any harder.
Hole 15) Great change. Use to get the short placement with an XD...had to go with a fairway driver or overstable midrange to get the new placement.
Overall, I liked the changes!!!!!
Thanks, we try
We moved #8 Tee pad for two reasons, one is to get it away from the new placement of target #7 (safety reasons) and two was to try to lengthen it a bit. I was hoping that a couple of trees would visually come into play and narrow the shot just a bit, but we'll see. Because the pad is up a bit higher in elevation it visually looks a lot better anyway, I think
The thought behind #13 was more elevation to deal with, and a tighter u-turn. at the old tee the angle allows a throw to go farther up hill for the guys with the huge arms, and the thought was that the new angle would take off about 30-50 feet from their first throw. all theories
