I am helping design a private 18 hole course right now. It's going ot be pretty awesome. He wants to hold contests and have open play also. it will be a Hornings hideout style course (pay-play) on his 42 private acres. It is 10 minutes form Pier park. Just over the St. Johns bridge and over Forest park and you are there. It's actually fun designing a course. We need to squeeze one more hole in somewhere though. but we have some technical holes through trees, we have some long open holes, we have some short holes and we have a hole over a bit of water.
