I also like Fink; it is a nice, relaxing course with some interesting lines. Good ol' Fink!
Some low-traffic day Fink holes that I like:

2 tee to 3 basket (par 4), mando up the gut and mando between the two trees framing up the green for 3. Basically up the gut the whole way

9 tee to 4 basket (par 4 or 5)

5 tee to 6 basket (par 3)

7 tee to 4 basket (par 3)

7 tee to 3 basket (par 3)

8 tee to 9 basket (par 4 or 5)

We played 9 tee to 3 basket since 3's tee was covered in snow. Not as long as 2->3 but a fun shot.

Yeah, 3's tee is usually where the deepest snow is and the least amount of sun gets to. It takes a while to clear up.

When were you there? I'm curious how the course is looking. I know the fairway of 9 usually floods in the spring. I haven't been there in a few months.

Yesterday; other than #1 and #3's tee I think they were pretty good? It'll be flooded of course, like around #7's basket, as always.

We played Spotsy last week. Technically it's still closed; but they let us play. Make sure to contact them though. Only the front nine of Tiki were lit up; may want to ask about that. Sunny and Dark are both good courses. Snow up by the clubhouse; but, I believe it was gone from the courses. (Forgive my memory; we played 23 courses...)

I was there yesterday and 5 and 6 were butchered when I got there. Big trees taken down and chopped up. There was a pile of logs sitting in front of 5's basket.

Its gotta be because of the trees being ash and possibly infected. Randy Sr. would not have let them do that for any other reason without putting up a fight.

I guess we shall see though.

When were you there Wed? I was there too.....

I was there from about 3 until sunset. Kind of an impromptu trip because the weather seemed so nice.
