WyCo League 7/29
« on: August 02, 2005, 10:46:23 AM »
Great night for league at WyCo to close out July. 10 golfers came out on a warm but not too hot Friday evening. I had a bounty out on #4, stating that as soon as someone took a 3 on that particular location I would move the basket. It had been there for 7 weeks and no 3s had been hit up to last Friday when three people hit it. Carson hit it first followed on another card by Leo and Rick. I haven't moved it yet but look for the position by the creek to be trimmed up and in use this week.

Open   
Carson Wilson   56

Rick Molenkamp   61
Sean Molenkamp   62
Ryan Hanger   62
Brian Gammon   64
Kevin Montgomery   72

Is there more than two placements for that hole?  Seems like the long one by the creek is a little tougher than the dogleg position.

There are three placements. The original dogleg through the gap and to the right plays a bit easier than the position I am about to pull it from. That position is through the gap and to the left up near the road. The third placement down by the creek is newer than those two and actually plays a bit easier than both of them according to the hole-by-hole stats I'm doing. A lot more threes there than on the original dogleg right.

Yeah, Kevin, if you don't throw your drive the right distance on that dogleg, you won't make a 3.  Interesting hole.  I didn't know about the "tough" 3rd placement.  I hadn't seen the 2nd by the creek until "Kan-U-Wyco" this year.  We need more golf holes like these!  Hole #1 might be my favorite at Wyco.  What's yours?

#1 is a classic tunnel shot with the big trees and all but my favorite is probably #14. It has three really good pin placements. The short one in front of the pond is a rather tough birdie opportunity, the left one way down by the road is a great long downhill shot with all of the big trees to contend with and the one on the other side of the pond (where it is now) is a great risk/reward hole with trouble all around, pond, road, nasty brush below the damn. That hole just has a lot of personality. The two long pins are feel good threes and the short pin is a satisfying birdie. And to top it off, you can use the short pin as an alternate for #15 when teeing from below the damn with a blind shot across the pond. We plan to put and alternate tee pad in there one of these days.

There's lots of good holes out there in my opinion though. Some clunkers too but you have to take the good with the bad on most courses. They can't all be Water Works.

I can't think of any "clunkers" at Wyco. You sir, are too modest about your home course. All of the holes offer varied challenges and the tunnels are tha bomb.

I've always liked #4 to the right a lot. Classic.

I also think #7 is a great hole. Haven't had a three there in about two years.

#7 is a great roll hole!

#14 is pretty sweet.  Long left placement gives choices off the tee... hyzer, roller, low bomb.  I almost had my best birdie ever there when I chained out and rolled all the way down the ditch.

I haven't played #14 across the pond.  I do remember #15 shooting back across the pond to I think where the short pin is now.  The tee wasn't blind though, that would add a challenge for sure.

I would have to say that #7 is probably my favorite. I also like #1, #2, and #18 a lot.
