All that said, your reviews offer far more insight than most & you keep things positive.
With that in mind, I wanted to invite you BACK to River City Nature Park in DeBary now that all 18 holes are in. Dual tees and a minimum of 3 pin placements per fairway. 3 more par 4s (more at the longest pins) All it currently lacks is the tee signs (our next big project), though 'no water or restrooms' continues to be the biggest con.
As for PI, all 18 were designed at the outset, 6 more in the same area with 3 more to the south. But while we awaited the next 9, the City decided to entertain the notion of a high-dollar volleyball complex that will likely pimp us out of two uber-tasty holes and may force me to shorten the existing course, if I am to fit all 18 in there. Big Sigh. I was surprised to find out that PI is currently rated #7 (in the world !) for 9-holers. Glad to see that your review contributed to that ranking. THANKS! Keep up the good work.
Hey Jaymon, I just read your review of Picnic Island and River City Nature Parks, both of my design. (T2 was also a very nice review, which we quoted you on in some promo) I appreciate your consideration of each review, although I was a bit surprised at a '2-discs' for Azalea pk, since it is obviously designed as an entry level course and I feel I got just about as much out of it as one could hope. Sigh. I feel as if I got 9 fairly safe holes into a mostly open field that works well for the intended demographic. Given the available land and budget that's as good as it gets.
We just added alternate pin positions that change things up a bit and add some length. The new tee signs will be among the best quality you'll ever see. Promise.
