Timg has covered this before, the course owner/designer has control of when a course goes up and when reviews can be added. Timg can add a course and lock the reviews at the discretion of the designer.

So basically it's up to John as it should be.

think about it,,, post it now so people go play it and create walking paths, knock down new growth, take all the tics home etc... i.e. make it better -- OR -- wait until it's "READY" then post it so people can play it and the reviews will all say it's rough / overgrown and needs more traffic before it's worth playing.

which comes first the chicken or the egg?

I guess that is an argument you should make to the Pittsboro Parks Dept and Mr Houck, not me. That's all I'm saying. It's their call, not ours. Even if you, I, or the masses think they are wrong.

Besides, people can't take all the ticks home! I already have. They feel like family now. All 3 billion of them.

^this was my point, albeit in a more articulate fashion Unless you are on this site or tight with Baldwin and some locals, there is no way to find this course. The park, itself, is easy to miss.

Sloppy, big club to assist? Let me think of one. In all seriousness, we are wanting to do our final monthly here, so we do plan on coming out in advance for a workday. That is the August timeframe, so I will reach out to you and Jeff prior.

Rock Ridge is now up on DGCR, including all hole lengths, pars, and even a few photos. Reviews are disabled for now.

Are tee signs up yet? Just want to say you've done a phenomenal job designing the course. There's a couple holes (mostly just #6) I still don't understand yet but as the course breaks in I'm sure it'll become more obvious.

Also I noticed that the short layout is also listed at par 65, is that right? Doesn't seem right to me.

Thanks, Davey -- I really appreciate that.

As for tee signs, we've been finalizing all the proofs today, and the signs will be in Pittsboro by the end of the month.

As for Hole #6, I like holes with multiple routes, and I wanted to give Carolina golfers some hole concepts they might not have seen before. Here's a sneak peek at the Blue tee sign that might help you make more sense of the lines.

Well, people can have fun discussing this one.

To me, the Red tees play a par 65 for Red level players. They certainly wouldn't be considered 65 for Blue level players. And the landing areas wouldn't make sense for Blue level players.

We expect there to be a lot of new players in Pittsboro, and the Red tees should provide them with a challenge that makes 65 an appropriate par for them.

now it makes more sense, i couldn't figure out what was going on with the middle route or if you meant for there to be a middle route.

maybe it's just my ability but i feel like there isn't enough height on the far right route to allow a shot to get to the basket; or maybe you designed it that way since for me it seems to be by far the safest and easiest route to take. i thought i threw a pretty good shot twice and was still looking at a 40 footer. though again, it could just be my lack of skill.

as far as par for the reds, the way you put it makes sense if it is par for red level players. though you will definitely get some debate on that.
