Unfortunately, that's the same weekend as the River City Rumble.

If you played West Lake, you'd understand.  And, it's possible we're playing Camden II, a totally wooded par 58 that Sprague is finishing up.

i've seen/heard enough of west lake from you (the illustrious dg course ranker guy) to know it's a sweet course.

WL ain't all that.   It's like playing BV with the exception that bad shots cost $15. ;D

It's like playing blue valley except there are holes you can 2.  That course places a much higher premium on shot making instead of distance.  Not saying West Lake isn't long, but the shots are way more technical.

People have problems with the water primarily on #13 and #5.  That's because they bite off more then they can chew, and do something dumb.  They're both par 5's for a reason. #19 has a longer tee than I've played, and I think you've got to clear 340' of water to get in deuce territory.  The other water shots (#2 and #22) are just straight shots with minimal water to clear.  The holes are both under 300' to boot, so if you have to throw it too hard or the water is too much of a pucker factor, throw a putter over and get your easy 3.

BTW, #5 at West Lake for the uninitiated.  You can see the band of the basket in the upper right corner.



Sorry for the thread jack.  I've not played in an OctoberFriz, but I've heard it's a great time.

Jack and John are probably more qualified than me as rankers, but I don't think either of them have played West Lake since it was roughed out in 2005 or 2006 (right?).

in case you didn't get my slight jab, the "course ranker" comment was referring to your star turn in the trailers for the ozark mountain dvd

"it's in my top 2 or 3"

goofball

Chris, I agree with the first sentence of your post for sure.  There are deucable holes at WL compared to BV.   IMHO, some of the short holes there should be eliminated anyway to make the course a Champ 18.  6-11 all seem kind of pointless compared to the rest of the course....Just my opinion though.

I also contend that water can be found (possibly some requiring more errant shots than others) on the following:

1,2,4,5,12,13,18 (real bad 2nd or 3rd shot), 19, 21, 22, & 23.

The course favors a BHRH making it a little unbalanced.  Maybe that's why this lefty isn't a big fan.  I am however, a big fan of the designer, Chad Eng, so I don't dog it too bad, there's a lot more positives about the course than negs, for sure.  It's an absolutely georgeous setting.   

Go to the Frizzzzzzzzz. ;D

22 and 23 totally slipped my mind.  I've got a few in the drink from 22. 

You're quite right, the course favors the righty shot for sure.  There are some right turning shots (#3, #14, and #16 come to mind), but 2 of those aren't really reachable from the tee, so the lefty doesn't have a decided advantage to score.

I wasn't totally in my mind when I was saying most of that stuff.  I blame it on the French toast.

I played WL in 2007, and liked it a lot.  It didn't like me at all.  :)  Yeah, it's pretty righty-firendly, but no more so than Blue Valley, and it did have more deucable holes, so it was much more balanced.  Of course, it had 6 more holes total than Blue Valley.
