For those that want Circle C. As far as I know it isn't available for tournaments at this time. They do not want to shut down the course to the public. Or so it has been for the last 2 years. Not sure what the future holds for Cirlce C tournaments

Manor or the Bible Ridge provide the best NT level pro challenges in the area. Unlikely that the ridge will ever host a large event, though.

I love Circle C, but it's really too easy for the top players. Met Center has, unfortunately, lost a lot of trees and has crappy routing. Roy G is a very nice course, but is very one-dimensional in its challenge.

I just hope that Vinnie uses OB sparingly at Manor as many of the creeks that wind through the course provide random punishment. If it were up to me, the ONLY place I'd have OB on that course would be near the basket on hole 10. The rest I'd make any water as casual.

Disagree. Tough does not always equal pro level. A lot of tough courses do not have realistic lines and and are really more suited for AM's who can use more luck than skill. Circle C and Roy G are better courses for open players because they have real lines that challenge distance and accuracy.

The lines at Manor are very fair and realistic.

Dammit! We are going to only play Manor!

May be better than I remember in my 2 rounds there but a few of the teeshots (going to the right) on the par 4s had sketch angles (decent sidearm> really good anhyzer)

the only bad hole at manor is hole 5, little pinball wizard hole where the difference between a 2 and a 6 can be an inch.

See I don't even remember that one! I am not saying any of the holes are bad....just that Olse does this a few times per course.....and someone can throw a 6/10 sidearm and be good while the anyhyzer guy will likely end up on the off the fairway to the left....even with a 9-10 anhyzer.

Ingleside Golf has a hole that stick out as Olse'ey. Probably a 325ft hole tucked into the right...fairway real open on the left.

Brad W trows a sidearm all 3 rounds....all within 15ft even though they all took slightly different routes....I throw 3 anhyzers that all land 35ft away because they can't really make the corner without cut-rolling. Made the putt each time...but I didn't like that I had to work my butt off with two good shots while he would just easily lob it up there.

I love holes that go to the right........but there is a difference between a hole where both a good anhyzer and sidearm work and one where only the sidearm has a legit chance.

Same thing goes for fairways that turn left.....I always look if the lefty with a good anhyzer has a chance.....if they don't I am usually not the biggest fan.

Here is the hole I am talking about...At Ingleside Gold. I will look for the ones at Manor.




See how the you have to go past the hole kinda before going into the gap? Easy with a high FH fade or a low skip FH.
