While I'm at it, here is a map of the proposed layout for the first and second rounds of 12. This may change but I'm pretty happy with it so far...
Hole 1: Slightly uphill turnover with basket tucked around the corner of a mandatory tree. Risk/reward hole as a perfectly placed roller or tight turnover will yield the birdie, come up short on the mando and you'll have a tough shot for par.
Hole 2: Long uphill straight shot with a wooded teeing area; basket is tucked in amidst a small bunch of pines making a left to right approach necessary.
Hole 3: From both tees, a dual fairway shot with a low ceiling turnover or sweeping hyzer available. Dangerous basket placement on the downslope of a hill and danger all along the right side in the form of a trench and thick trees.
Hole 4: Teeing off from the center of a small valley, basket is placed at the end of the tunnel. High, uphill turnover will be needed.
Hole 5: First round, a short slightly downhill turnover through a moderately tight window. Second round it plays as a long down hill dual fairway with a shorter tight turnover route and a longer sweep hyzer route through pines.
Hole 6: Shorter uphill flick or turnover shot - probably the easiest two on the course although elevation will add some challenge.
Hole 7: Somewhat short downhill shot with a tough somewhat blind basket placement. Larger dropoffs behind the basket and off the left side of the fairway. With a good drive its a two, bad drives can find trouble quickly.
Hole 8: Up and over a hill, definitely a hole that will favor those who can toss up a big, long hyzer. The rest of us will be looking to place our second shot close or running a long downhill birdie putt.
Hole 9: Really tight straight downhill through young stand of trees. Not a ton of danger but the drive will have to be perfect to go clean to the basket.
Hole 10: Short straight shot straight up to the top of a rock lined hill. Long of the basket will be OB but coming up short will leave you on the rocks with no footing and a really tough uphill putt.
Hole 11: Tight turnover shot through a narrow tunnel of trees. Going to be a tough birdie.
Hole 12: Downhill open shot with the basket tucked into a tight grouping of trees. OB path runs down both sides of the fairway getting tighter until it converges behind the basket.
The last round is going to have a some new holes, added distance, and will be a lot tougher.
