If you do, I heartily recommend the following thread, with lots of good ideas---not so much hole design theory, but nuts-and-bolts stuff that may save you some grief later:

I think the average high that time of year is high 50s. Which comes in waves of nice, mild weather, then relatively cold (low 20, high 45), and occasional days of cold...

Oh, one other tip.

It may seem a minor thing, but in the long run you'll want to get it right. Trust me.

Sheer coincidence.

Or is it subconscious?

Truth be told, at Stoney Hill we have more than 18 holes on the approximately 50 acres. About 25, depending on how you count the overlaps. But the...
