Does anyone have a run down of the locations of the new holes? I was out there at the start of the month and saw a couple new baskets when walking back from 9 but wasn't sure how to get to them. Do you come back out of the area for 7/8/9 and then head left, or do you go around the other side of the pond near 9's pad?

The layout is in transition; but, currently, you go around the back yard, which includes the original holes 7,8,9 then back across the dam to ten's tee, which shoots over the pond to the pin on the hill.  Then the path will take you to 11,12,13, and 14 to get out of the woods by the original hole one.

If you've never played in league format, I would suggest starting at a singles league to learn the ropes. At a random draw doubles league, your partner will expect at least a chance to play to win, and not to have to give out pointers or help you along with your game. That's kinda just the way it is.

That is one man's opinion. Random doubles, to me, is about meeting and playing with new people, and a chance to teach and/or learn, hopefully while enjoying the company of the players in the group. But, obviously, you can see that attitudes towards newbees will vary.

i gotta agree with rick here, learning new shots, perfecting the clutch putt and breaking in new plastic are what leagues are for me, and playing nice with others.

I was thinking that doubles is sometimes a nice place to warm people up, but I know that some people are exactly displaying the habits that Mr. Weizer is referring to....

You should come on out, I bet those guys will not bite your hand.....that hard!  :D

thanks for opinions. i guess some people take their game a little more serious than others. i said i was new but i didnt say i sucked. judging by the fact i"m not spending my time looking for discs in the hedge. and last time i played WW i only had two bogeys, but that was negated by the fact i had an egual amount of dueces. but its all good. no harm no foul. hope to see you all out soon. thx

Man, I apologize for coming across as harshly as I may have in my post. I don't take my game that seriously, but I know there are others who do for whatever reason, perhaps it is their only potential form of income at the moment... ;D

Anyway, come out to the Old Pike doubles league by all means!

I played Old Pike on Saturday for the first time in about 9 months, and it was great. Thanks to all who have put in the labor and creativity.  It is sweet. The wooded holes, 11 -14, remind me of Down Under years ago.  I really enjoyed the tee signs, seriously I laughed, and holes 4 and 5 are such sweet ace runs. Ching!
So yeah a big thumbs up to all! I did see Mike working on Saturday (man it was hot).;)
