Got out to play a round today after not seeing the course for almost a month. There are a couple trees down on one that need to be cleared, but they don't impact play much. Just some minor storm damage. Pads all seem to be in good shape still. There is now a bridge at the transition from 4 to 5, hole 11, and two on 17. Very nice. The standing water on 12 is mostly drained. It is much better than I anticipated. 14 and 15 have enough low growth to be real disc eaters in spots. Throw bright colors off those tees. The entire fairway isn't bad, but theyboth have some nice 1-2' growth in areas.

Now to the good stuff. I bagged an easy deuce on 8. No big deal. Then I grip locked a disc right into the pines on 15. That SOB sailed through about 4,000 tight pines, came out the other side and landed within 10' off the basket for another birdie. I'll never make that shot again. I wasn't great, but mostly stayed on fairways, and made all the easy putts. Shot a 65. Must be this course is too easy!

New013 still has me though. Plus without a few really lucky shots I was probably over 70. I think I shot a 72 last time I played it.

Got out here today with New and played the full 18 for the first time.

Really cool course. With some more love(mostly high limbing) it's going to be great! I enjoyed the course and my round of -3 felt really good for playing blind. Can't wait to come back an play again when it's more mature

Cool, and good to hear. I haven't been put there much lately due to work travel and kid activities. Glad that you enjoyed it. I plan on getting out a bunch more this Fall to help finish it off, and handle all the final touches. How'd 16 and 17 look to you guys?

Bout the same as the rest. Need High limbing and Loppers. Seemed to be the theme on the course for the most part.

17 looks a lot better on the left route from the last time i was there. i still haven't even attempted the right route. i can tell somebody did clean up 16 right at the landing area where it bends a bit although i think that area could be thinned out some more because i foresee a lot of people going long on that fairway and not making the turn tight enough towards the basket. i'm not saying take anymore trees down just the foilage on the ground in that area.

i agree with Pat that high limbing is the biggest concern as of now. 11 is a great example you can't even really hit the left route because of the limbs at the end. i also still think the hyzer route on 6 needs some limbing to make that route more reasonable. as of now my route of choice is the middle left anny route.

i know TCP is going out there this Sunday to help out. hopefully the extra manpower can really put a dent in to some of these final touches.

any idea when the pads will be poured and the signs installed?

the other thing i've been wanting to ask John about is on 5 from the longs you have the two trees making the center and right routes thinkers. i'm okay with the center route having that blocking tree because it's the most direct route and shouldn't be easy, however the tree blocking the right route doesn't really make sense to me. the right route is by far the longest and most indirect route of all three so i think choosing that option off the tee should be more appealing and with that tree there i would never even consider it.

Yea I agree. Hole 5 was the only one that didn't make sense to me.

Finally got back out to Rock Ridge to play a round with Noah today. The TCP club ( thamks Mike!) from the Raleigh area helped out a week or so ago, and the Pittsboro Parks Dept hired a good equipment operator to do some work. Plus Paul has been gradually spraying round up on the heavy grape vine areas. Things are really looking good. A huge portion of the fairway have been dragged and cleared of stumps. Weed growth is way down, and now so are the ticks! There is still a lot of high limbs and fine tuning to go, but the course is looking really good. Thanks to all the volunteers that have helped since I've been slacking off on other things.

Speaking of TCP we're having our final singles monthly for the season tomorrow starting at Rock Ridge and then round 2 at DB's. Registration is from 9 to 9:30 and it's $9 entry with a $1 ace pool if you choose.

This is probably the first organized singles at Rock Ridge so come on out; we're playing the longs of course. If you don't know what or where DBs is it's a private course about 20 minutes from Rock Ridge near Moncure, NC. You can get directions or follow someone from Rock Ridge if you show up.
