And maybe even move 6's basket a little more towards where it shows 7's short tee, to insure the building has no chance of getting hit.
This is what I meant- (*Fixed*)



No chance of hitting building, no chance of throwing in parking lot or road, and no crossing fairways. Only a decent chance of throwing in the creek on 5,7, & 9.

How did you sell the idea of the course to the Church congregation ? I need to know how to sell this
Selling the congregation hasn't been a problem. Funding the course has been the difficulty. Of course we sit on close to 30 acres of largely un-used property, so people are thrilled with the idea of using it for something.

What you need to do before anything else is contact Doug Rogers. He is designed and is responsible for Windwood, and I know you are a fan of that course. He is also their sport minister - so if anyone knows how to sell the idea it would be him. Nothing helps your cause more like another church/s explaining to your congregation how it has benefited their members and their community. He can also go over his funding ideas with you.

You can contact him through the church website. If you're really serious about this - I would say this is an integral piece before you go any further.

Now that I'm home and get the images not blocked - I do like the design layout. Short but very manageable. I would still contact Doug though and get advice on how to proceed.
