Hope John doesn't mind that I chime in here. The yellow baskets are actually the "gold" placements. Normal holes will play to blue pins, but for those that want to stretch the course out a bit, the gold basket may be used. There will be 8 gold baskets total on the course, and one of them will be used for two separate holes. This makes for 9 total holes that will have a "gold" placements available. If I remember correctly, the holes with "gold" placements are as follows: 3, 5, 6, 8 (same as #3), 10, 12, 16 & 18. My favorite hole with the gold placement will be hole #5. It's a crush turnover shot followed by another 300+ feet to the basket from the landing area - AWESOME. Can't wait for this course to be done. And if I know John, the poison ivy will be taken care of in due time. The course isn't complete and manicured yet, just needs some time and TLC.
