Does anyone know what the baskets are at the soccer complex across the street from Bill Allen? There's a few really old discatchers out there.

Playground is cool though lol

We played it yesterday. The playground gets a 5 star rating. I've never seen anything like that.

As far the course, there are some pretty big concerns. A lot of crossing fairways, you end up walking across fairways to get to the next tee. Holes 4 and 5 have you throwing right at the other holes tee, so it's kinda like people chucking discs at each other. Navigation is not very intuitive.

The short tees are ridiculously short, and that's coming from someone with a very small arm. The pars hold over from the long tees, making it more ridiculous. The par 4s are barely 4s on the longs, they are absurd on the shorts.

And major, major drainage problems. I understand an irrigation system is being put in, but it's going to have to do a ton to keep this course ok.

I don't want it to sound like there's nothing there, because it has a few interesting holes. But we all decided that this must be one of the small projects John does to keep busy. Not taking the drainage problems into account, I assume they are being fixed, I'd probably rate it as a 3.0.

Those are holes A, B, and C used for the upcoming Polar Open this Saturday the 25th. The teeboxes should be marked with flags. After hole 12 cross the street, go down to the right towards the creek and you should see the tee flags for hole A between the bridge and the tree.

Turner and ZBOAZ

I have been enjoying "elevation" courses lately. Turner and ZBOAZ have some pretty good hills for this flatland we live on.

Time for me to get back to Turner, as it's been a while. It sometimes kicks my butt, however I've been getting better at other courses. Sometimes you have to go back to one you haven't played in a while to see if you've improved.

I agree with you and love the elevation challenges at Turner, such as they are.

There's not elevation on all the holes, but bicentennial makes good use of the elevation on the holes that have it. You almost need a Sherpa guide on 5 and 7.

Agreed. The course is worth the drive.

Quite a few trees have been lost due to the drought and the recent ice storms. Get there while the course still has plenty of them. It's already "not what it used to be" and the course isn't that old.

Here's a link to video from Bicentennial in Crowley. It apparently was on Tosh at some point. http://www.ebaumsworld.com/video/watch/83851759/
