We're waiting for final approvals on the course plan in the next few weeks.

Is this a "what do you think" question?

Yeah, I've heard certain pros don't like some of our courses. Wondering what you think.

Hey Paul, just wondering how the season was for you after worlds -- you were pretty much untouchable at worlds, then at vibram and usdgc, you were not quite as hot (though obviously you were still playing insanely good compared to the rest of us, hehe). Were you a bit drained mentally or physically after worlds? Or did the later events just not suit your game quite as much? How do you like the maple hill course for your game? Thanks alot!

Do u think safari holes are more difficult than natural longer holes in general?

Actually, safari holes are many times not well designed and just long. They are typically more open because they are temp holes for spectator visibility. They also haven't been tested and may end up as push holes with no scoring spread. In the case of the hybrid holes at Lemon, they'll be better lengths for gold level than the more blue level lengths on the standard layouts plus they'll be tested in spring to make sure they'll play well for gold players. The new holes on the Temp course blended with longer white have been carved and cleared just like new holes on a permanent course. They just decided they couldn't retain them permanently due to rare native foliage discovered in the area. Again, the course will be tested before Worlds with tweaks done if needed.

Is that what the clearing past 17's pin on white is?

When and how will these be tested in the spring? Is there going to be a tournament run on them?

Yes, but that's just one extended hole. No schedule yet pending some issues to be resolved.

I really like the idea of extending White along with some new holes. There can be a really great layout over there.

How many holes for the Red/Blue hybrid?

(sorry to threadjack, Paul)
