This is kind of what I was getting at. After visiting Shawshank, it got me to thinking the same thing. We have some land in Arkansas, and I think it could be used like this. The trick will be to come up with the right theme and the right equipment to make it happen. What he did at Shawshank is a huge labor of love. He did not just cut stuff out, he added to it as well. I guess all the good designers do this too. It just had a cool feeling of like being at a Theme park for DG.

*I wish I had known they did not have good photos on the site here. When I go back at the end of May, I will fix that.*

I heard 3 guys from Illinois showed up in full prison gear clothes. It sounded like a great time. Maybe you could ask her to write something about her experience for us and post it?

The holes on the main Highbridge courses all have names with a theme for each course. Blueberry Hill has a 50s-60s Rock-n-Roll theme with holes like Snake, Battle 'n' Roll and Chuck Barely. Granite Ridge is harder rock from the 70s-80s with Free Bird and Pump It Up. Highbridge Gold has holes with a gold or yellow connection in the names like Golden Turnover and Treasure Island. Woodland Greens has a nature theme with Leaf It To Be There and Knoll Hazard. The Bear has Fur Fur Away and Grin & Bear It.

Shawshank is one of my favorite courses. When I'm back in Houston I play it every other month or so. A lot of fun with a lot of imaginative lines

I've been to other courses where each hole has a special name.
No overall theme... just nicknames for the Holes.
