You guys should move back.....

So you can make that your home course

18 will have OB markers and play like we discussed where you have to cross the path on your tee shot.
On Gold 16, I'm thinking you can also choose to go to the drop zone throwing three without teeing off. Only lower level players might ever consider that unless maybe the creek is really flooded and the water is up near the pin. And that might happen once in a while.

The other crossing has the option for Gold or White tee players to play their 3rd shot starting from the drop zone on the other side.
DGCR needs a like button. This sounds awesome, I cannot wait for the new fairfield.

I think the hole looks awesome. I think the landing area looks fair from the picture, but I think I would need to see the tee pad in person to give my a fairer assessment. I love the concept of the hole, the land is gorgeous.

I know some McCrakins. I don't know Phil. The land is owned by an older lady and his held in trust by her children. One wants to develope the property while another isn't so sure. I don't believe the folks I'm dealing with are related unless its maternal.

Because of my involvement in the sport and having been the driving force behind several courses in the area, the gentleman came to me to put together a proposal to get this first stage going.

I'm gullible that way but you knew that already. I guess it goes without saying.

Not just fair, but AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PDGA says I'm only rated 898 or something. I'd drive over the lake, hit the gap into the woods, and thread the approach up to the green for a birdie. I'd feel awesome if I got a three. I'd shank a few throws and often get 5's plus.
