when the good workaday weather returns, i'll soften the peace sign. only the throwers that can't reach it complain about the rocks, but since am masters throw their drivers for upshots trying to reach the circle, the danger factor will be addressed, as i am sure rosies #3 fairway will be soft as a dandelion bloom. ww needs a new ob paint job close to the event < june 2> and 18 new kickass flags, preferably with that new kcwo logo. mike and dave have offered to help ready the course - thank you both. official work day for me will be may 19, could use a truck/trailer and volunteers to start the mulching around pads. if the new flags are in by then, we could install them then.

These placements seem 99% the same as last years event. Can't verify that though...

And I like 4 the way it is. Helps stop roll-a-ways.

Looking forward to the work day!

I've seen you flick a lid around. Work it into your game!  ;)


On second thought, I'm sure the pin placement decisions are to help the flow of traffic and to prevent wild shots hitting others.

That's absolutely the case. Its hard enough not to get hit when its in the peace sign.  I dont really see an issue with the rocks tearing up discs.

On the lefty note, You're totally right. I need the forehand in my bag FOR SURE. I just like it anytime I can say Leftist Bastard..

Yeah. I agree.

And I realize that hole 1 is pretty in the long, but short right is a harder placement. That's my two cents.

There is still the long alternate tee setting down from the hilltop left too I bet. You could play that one and still have 17 peninsula.

I think 1 Long is harder than short right because the upshot only. I've seen tons of people go way long on a 100 foot upshot and up with a silly Bogey. It's much easier to get up and down to the Short Right position.

I will direct all the comments I got about it then to you, that was probably the #1 complaint about the course....

No, it is a really silly shot, and not at all safe to be throwing over people on #18 as well.

Tell ya'll what, we are looking for people to run the Wide Open next year already, why don't YOU step up and offer to run this event, then YOU can let people know the course selection and the configuration!
 ;D ;D ;D ;) :o 8) :P

1) Just because people complain doesn't mean they are right. In fact, ofttimes the opposite is true.

2) What, specifically, do you feel is silly about the peninsula on 12? I mean, I'm not necessarily disagreeing but I'm trying to figure out what would make it silly. I think it has a lot of pucker to it which makes it interesting at worst.

The pucker factor on that shot comes 10000000% from the road/OB, not the difficulty of the shot itself.  The straight pins are much more difficult shots, they just don't have OB in play as much.  Yellow rope maybe to create a pucker factor?

Sure. And what is the problem with that?
