Loomis enjoyed playing with you and Dirk last night. I know you were looking for some feedback on the hole changes so here it goes.
#2 "five stars". Moving the tee pad back narrows that hole considerably. More risk off the tee than there was before. A difficult 2 and now 4 is more of a possiblity. A hole that can separate the field is always a good thing.
#6 "four stars". Like the look of this hole as compared to the other tee location. Great bringing the trees into play and the sidewalk OB as well. Only suggestion would be to maybe move the tee pad a little further left. That would make the hyzer a little more difficult and entice more to use the narrower left path but that's "nit picking". All in all I like it.
#8 "three stars". Moving the tee back certainly makes a 2 a lot more difficult. I've always had trouble finding my way through the trees off the box from the origional pad. The further pad will not change my approach from the tee, maybe just the disc.
#9 "three stars". Moving the tee back just a bit does make it a more difficult par 3 than the tee box to the left. So from that point of view I like it. This is one hole where I would like to see some different pin placements.
#10 "three stars". The good, brings the tree line on the right side more into play. The bad, Liked the look of the hole from the left side tee pad. Also may limit the type of shots off the tee.
#15 "three stars". Added distance takes away an easy duece opportunity. Downside could be everyone scores 3 instead.
Anyway, thanks for getting this League off the ground. I think the plastic swap is a great idea. Thanks, also for the changes last night. It shows that folks are always looking for ways to improve the course and with new pin placements and other subtle changes those that were not impressed with SMP will be one day.
