They used to mow all of the grass when it was originally installed, but they stopped after gas prices went up. I agree, it isn't the greatest hole because it usually only produces easy 3s as long as you get through the gap.

Old 17 & 18 were taken out on the redesign after the tornado because we decided there were too many wide open holes. But now we don't have a long, wide open par 4 hole.

Champion Destroyer from the long tee and probably a Champion Boss from the short tee.

Todd Park was one of my favorite courses when I lived in Rochester. I have not seen it since the tornado redesign. It looks like mostly the same layout until after Hole 19 (tho 24 & 25 look the same).

Straight on the left I can see it's kind of dense. Is there a clearing at all to maybe try a tomahawk right off the tee? (Long)

I've seen a good number of people try to thumber over/through the trees straight to the basket from the long tee and only 1 person got out into the open. It was all luck though.

With a strong right to left wind, a person can get close going up the gap. Without any wind, there are a lot of 40+ putts. With a left to right wind, just get out and lay up for the 3.

Discette, the tornado wiped out literally every tree except for one on old 22-25 and random trees throughout the rest of the course. Current 20-27 with the exception of 25 are all new holes. Current 23-25 are all wide open right now with a bunch of small, new trees randomly throughout the course/park that will eventually make these holes much tougher. The overall length is still about the same, but the new holes from the long tees are all long par 3s with few deuce opportunities even with a big arm.

Just played here today. 5 of us, we all got out the gap, saw a huge high rhfh anny that had a line that nearly parked it (caught a branch and fell short), I actually threw a flippy pro Destroyer on a hyzer, tried to sneak it through high and it caught a branch, fell nicely about 100' short. Nothing amazing today. I did get a 4 on hole 10 though, that was about the highlight of my round.
