^ I like what they did on that hole with the logs/rocks around the pads, as well as all the logs framing the sloped sections of the fairway, as well as the mulch.

1) Looks nice to the eye, dresses the course up a bit.
Barren patches of dirt around pads, baskets and in the fairway just look sad and neglected.
2) Helps reduce soil ersosion from rain and traffic - keeps the course looking and playing better longer.

Sometimes, so much soil erodes away around the tees that you have to be careful on your follow through when you drive, due to the drop of the end of the tee pad.

Goat Hill looks nice! Amazing how much more interesting holes look when the terrain changes elevation.

FWIW - I scouted up ahead, and there are plenty of hits out there, so knock yourselves out, but I came up blank for 828, 829, 833, 838... but there's stuff to post for the other lengths, so there's still plenty of fun to be had.
If anyone knows of some long local holes that might need to be updated on the site, now would be a good time to do so.

Harry Myers DGC: Rockwall, TX
Hole 3:



Sign shown here to provide an idea of the hole's shape and line. Hole info says blue tee = 824, (red = 692), so I'm hoping basket's been moved and tee sign is out dated.


your turn...

Circle C #18

@Bogey

I have only hit par from the blue tee once in the years I've been playing that course, and I "cheated" by playing over the rough to the left of the tee to the creek, up the creek on shots 2&3, uphill to the basket on 4, and dropped in for shot 5. The best I've scored playing the "fairway" is 6 shots. 1 out of 5 shots I land in the creek in front of the basket from the field before the alley, the other 4 times I overshoot the lie and have no shot down the alley or I turn too much on the throw and ricochet into the woods.

This reminds me, I have been meaning to ask John what his motivation was in combining those holes and clearing the alley to the basket for this "red riding hood" hole.

Well... Crud. Steve beat me to it. But I am going to throw it on there anyway because the 823's sign says 777'
