Windy?
« on: November 05, 2009, 02:46:50 PM »
So here is a question that will be completely subjective I suppose - but..... If I am taking a new player out to play and it is extremely windy, what course would you go to? Besides DU since this person hasn't thrown before. Any course more protected than the others?

They all seem windy when I am there  ::) 

Thanks for the advice -

If you don't want to play in the wind stay away from Legacy.  Its been my experience (and Legacy is one of my favorites) that if its slightly windy elsewhere, there's a good chance it will be more windy at Legacy.  IMO playing in the wind helps your game for the calm days.

You might try William Yates, if only because most shots are MUCH shorter than, say, Blue Valley  :o   Lotsa help, I know  ::)

I agree with CD, William Yates is good due to the shorter holes.  I also think that Swope is pretty protected from a lot of the wind, at least in the times IO have played there.
