It wasn't bad for me, or for my playing partner...it was rather enjoyable, after we knew that no serious damage or injury had occurred...a drunken equestrian falling off of his horse.

Did Okay

Played what I review as a great course for the first time and beat it by a couple of strokes. Found a couple of discs while searching for mine in the brush. No names or numbers, so I guess I have a...

Hope it helps, Donovan. Bear Creek looks and sounds like a course that I'd definitely want to play if ever in the area.

Cool and wow! Such wisdom and insight from someone so young who's been playing for such a short amount of time. Glad to know that you're out there, Jeremy. Maybe there IS hope for the youth of...

You know, I can almost always tell when I'm reading a Grand Master or Senior Grand Master, who has been playing the sport for decades. Great insights, Chuck!

I didn't mean to give the impression that I'm panning them, David. All in all, I think that they're accurately okay. For instance, I've always thought that 400' on an open hole was a bit too short...

Then there's parallel pairs like 3/4, 7/8, 11/15, 15/16, 16/17, and 17/18 at Cedarock, where the fairways actually touch, so to speak, with no distance between them, and very little or absolutely no...

Well, it's not going to happen on Cedarock 17A, either. That stump has been removed. Hope that they will still move the basket to that proximate spot, if just for aesthetic, symmetrical balance...

That sounds like an ultimate truism, due primarily, I would think, to the actuality that the athleticism is in the horses, rather than the humans. I don't suppose that they have separate divisions...

Kudo's Chris! Excellently and rationally reasoned. Though, just because a course is relatively short, by today's standards and par rated at 54, doesn't necessarily mean that it's crappy or boring.
