Tricky holes
« on: September 18, 2012, 03:06:59 PM »
If you were to only have 1 hour at clover dell. What holes would you suggest? Signature holes, tough holes, important holes for placement etc. I saw pictures of the front 9 on dgcoursereview but not pics of the back 9.

Thanks
Adam

If you have never been there I would spend a few minutes just locating the pins on the front nine. One of the biggest complaints I hear from people is about blind pins behind cedars on the front 9. This is mainly on #4-7 and #9. Then on the back I concur with Dick, #10 definitely. Then if you can only hit a few you need to see where #12 is then for sure check out #14 and #16. #18 is a little tricky but mostly long with OB on the left. The others are pretty straightforward.

I haven't heard how the Bluebird folks plan to play OB on the back nine but I have it in my mind to play the path and beyond is OB on #10, #11, #12 and of course water is OB and comes into play on #10-#14. There are fences that are OB and can come into play on the front nine too on #1-3 and #5, 6 and if you're really unlucky #7. But #1 is the most common OB fence. The others are rare.

I have shots of #10 and #14 up on Facebook. If you have an account join the Clover Dell Park Disc Golf Course group. Otherwise, you might be able to get to the using this link.

Real nice pics. Great pics of 10. Thanks, does hole 10 play as a par 5 or 4. and on 14 305' to make the green, thats pretty good shot.

We haven't had enough rounds recorded to really call it a par 4 or 5 yet but we are thinking par 4. Right now #10 is playing a bit easier because the overflow pond that it throws over is nearly dry from the drought. #14 measured out at 268' from pad to pin with a GPS but plays a bit longer in my opinion. There is an escape route to the right that plays for a pretty easy three but there is danger either way you go. We still haven't settled on the drop-zone but it will likely be over in the escape route area about where a decent shot to the right would land. It should offer the folks that land in the water and end up at the drop-zone a shot at a pretty easy circle four.

From what I remember, the tee signs were not accurate on the front, like maybe a new pin placement had been added after the sign was made.  It was hot that day and I was in a hurry, so it could have just been the heat and the running I was doing to finish the front in under 20 minutes.

My thought is that on the front the line you take is important, but it seemed like it was more about knowing what row of cedars you wanted or didn't want your disc to land behind.  I tried to play a few on the back, but never found hole 10.

Yes, the signs on the front need to be updated. There is an alternate pad on #1, #2 and #4 along with alternate pins on #1, #3, #4, #5, #6 and #9. Not finding #10 isn't unusual. It's 720' and not visible until you get quite a ways up the fairway. We're working on sign updates and will hopefully have them in place by the 6th.

have your caddy bring a weed eater for the back 9, I really hope it gets a good brushhog/mowing this week. The wife and I played  it Saturday. also have your caddy teach you how to straddle putt out of a cedar tree.......wish we were goin back to Marshall because unless a lot of work is done this week, clover dell is not ready for a state championship. We also need the option to drive off of the grass on the back nine next to the wood chips for safety reasons.
