So I finally got to venture out to Steilacoom to see some of the new changes to the course. Playing a round with Chase, I got to play the 4 new NW holes, as well as a plethora of new positions on older holes. It seems like the TDGC finally has a coherent and comprehensive plan for future work at Steilly, and all the work that's already done is absolutely tremendous.
I was interested in hearing the thoughts of others on the new course look, from what I've heard there will soon be completely separate NW, SE and Am courses that will all stand on their own. And i can certainly vouch that the NW course is going to be at least 4-5 strokes harder in relation to 3 pars than previously.
