Mature woodlands are a thing of beauty. I was walking with my daughters in a mature maple woods (Blackberry Maples FP in Kane County) and couldn't help thinking how nice a course there would be. The canopy was so thick that there was very little in the way of under story. One could almost play there without any clearing at all. The light coming down through the autumn maple leaves was saturated with warm hues and just about glowed.
i guess thats true things looked like they've been there forever. it was a very nice hike and work out in there. can't wait to go back and what town is that forest preserve located at maybe you should bring up that plan we have enough woods and wildlife around that would be perfect for courses

Grey Fox, Silver Lake WI

The Grey Fox is now set up all shorts, except 13 which is on the island.

Also, they are getting close to pouring the new pads for the redesigned Red Fox. The Red Fox is still playable as of this afternoon.

Grey Fox in all shorts is the biggest bummer ever I made the mistake of playing that layout once.

It's still fun, but by the 3rd round the long walks really become noticeable. The real bummers for me were the two double boogies, holes 4 and 6 on my first round.

As I think about they might have made it all shorts because of the Red Fox redesign. I assume at some point in the next few days they will be pulling the baskets and pouring the new pads. Maybe the park wants the Grey Fox to be as easy and "family friendly" as possible while the Red Fox is closed. Just a thought.

That makes sense. I feel bad for that guy coming in from Indiana this weekend to check out Grey Fox.

Last time the course was in all shorts I took a guy from Ohio there so he could see the course, not knowing it was in all short pins. These out of state guys just keep getting bad breaks.

Not as bad as Camden II shorty shorts. Woof!

And good thing they leave 13 long. That short position shouldn't even there, heh.

Camden II in all shorts makes baby Jesus cry.

I could've just played that whole thing with my Wizard. I rarely threw anything else off the tee.
