Perry as of 4/21/13
« on: April 22, 2013, 08:12:05 AM »
It is set all short right now  >:(

It is still fun, but plays as a shadow of its former self.

Specific offenders include hole 2 (which should NEVER be moved from its awesome long tunnel position, and the left placement is awful), hole 5 (the signature long downhill tunnel, should be longer), hole 6 (went from a par 4 to a must birdie), and hole 17.

I'll be excited when it gets back to longish/mixed positions. Just wanted to make everyone aware so if you make the trek out there you don't think Loomis and I have been making up how awesome it is.

I finally got a chance to play Longview on Saturday morning, and despite it being set short I really enjoyed it.  I kept waiting for these monster ~650ft blind dogleg holes, but they never came.  Probably for the best though, as I was in a bit of a hurry anyways.

We started on the back nine, due to around 20 players starting a mini and getting ready to tee off on 1.  We got lost on a couple of holes, but otherwise wasn't terribly difficult to find the next tee.  Could definitely use some signs though, but I'm assuming that's coming soon. 

Put up a 55 after missing a few easy putts.  I'm excited to go back and play it again, hopefully the pins get moved frequently.

What does the box look like?  Does it say IGLOO on the side? ;)

I agree with everyones thoughts.  It was moved to shorter pins for the worker/tourney on Saturday.  That being said, many who helped with the course like shorter easier placements (don't ask me why).  My thought is that everyone plays the same holes, so who the hell cares.  Anyway, I did notice as I walked the course that a lot of the shorter pins weren't even close to what we had talked about, specifically hole 5 down the hill (1 was supposed to be core drilled on a boulder on the left hand side half way down the hill, and the second was supposed to be close to the ravine on the right hand side at the bottom of the hill).  Another one was hole 6... I thought the short pin was WAY to short.  The hole 2 you are referring to, not sure.  There is one that was to be a dog leg left, and looked like it required quite a bit more trimming before being ready for play on that position.  Hole 4, not sure.  Hole 7 short was supposed to be mounted on a boulder across the ravine. 

I've yet to play the back so I couldn't tell you which pins are right and which need moved.
