Yeah, after blasting a 450ft tunnel shot. Easy!

The Red Roc and Homie crew did a great job.
They usually do a good job down there but It would be nice if they actually got those scores posted up....

Never will because I never try :P In the long pin I play that hole for a 4 unless I have a great drive, then 3. I just try to stay in the fairway.

I thought it was fun. According to the current DGCR rating of 3.74, I'd say that it is not underrated. I'll post a review at some point...probably a 3.5 or a 4 from my POV.

However, I heard from several people prior to the tourney that blue is too easy and easily forgettable. I would disagree with them.

ahhh I just don't care that much for the front field holes but even they aren't too bad really...

blue is pretty alright in my book...but when you have big ol' gold / silver and sweet red there.... I can see how blue gets skipped

edit: I actually really like white for winter rounds with snow on the ground

Again, print a map and the hole distances before going to Round Barn in case they don't have tee signs up yet! I hope they have them since there's a tournament there this weekend, but who knows. Play to the red baskets, obviously
