I'm glad I don't own a pond anymore. Big pain in the ass and I know what you mean when it gets too many nutrients. The pond dye and copper sulfate stuff makes a mess and stains everything. One...

I think they are legit. From the pics it looks like they put a lot of work and money into the place. Name is a little funny to me since my friends and I used to call our dream girls from college...

It will take some time to break even and even longer to get profitable.

Even though I'm still building my 24-27 hole course, I have 18 holes playable with at least 2-3 tees each. Not all of those...

Alexander Park wasn't that bad when I played in April. A little confusing for an out-of-state player with many baskets out in that large open area. I think I would have gave it a 3-3.5 rating if I...

I'd rather them not be extremely elevated. One of my fav courses has a hanging basket just a little too high for my liking. It does make it tougher though.

My homemade baskets sit about 3 inches...
