I would consider Hole 4 to be a par 4 as well. While a 2 is possible, it's pretty rare and requires a great tee shot and putt. If get a 2, that's an eagle in my book. Does anyone know if someone got it in 2 this weekend? If not, it makes sense it should be a par 4, albeit an easier one.
I thought the OBs on 10 and 13 were great and apparently created a lot of scoring differential, which is a good thing. I actually thought hole 10 didn't play too hard for a right-hander with the strong tail-wind pushing everything back in bounds. I had drop in 4s on 10 both rounds and I don't have a big arm by any means.
Hole thirteen is a great example of how OB can get into people's heads. If you can throw at least 350', a 4 isn't too difficult if you just execute your shots. Just throw down the middle of the fairway, lay up past the tree near the short pin, then throw a 150'-175' shot onto the green for a 4, or a 5 at worst if you miss your putt. Obviously the big headwind made things more difficult, but the OB wasn't really that tight, unless you were trying to get onto the narrow portion of the fairway on your drive and get onto the green in two. I know the green was actually quite a bit larger this year as well, making upshots easier than previous years.
Overall, I really enjoyed the course and wanted to thank DD, Tracy, and everyone else who helped set up the OB an/or put this event on.
