Tri-cities later this week, Winged Deer vs Warrior's Path?

All I really see is a couple private courses, and two highly-rated public courses:
Winged Deer and Warrior's Path.

Any pros/cons between the two? I will likely end up playing alone, unless someone here would like to join, which would be

Let me know!

I used to play up in the tri-cities all the time since one of my biggest customers was in Johnson City. I would pick Warrior's Path over Winged Deer hands down. WP is a lot like a more hilly version of Reedy Creek with maybe some Sugaw sprinkled in.....if Sugaw was spread out over land like the hilliest part of Reedy (holes 13 & 15) and without the ghetto feel. Very enjoyable old school course! Steady Ed designed it (although most has been redesigned since then).

That said, Winged Deer's original 9 was my favorite all-time 9'er. The newer holes are mainly full of cedars that will gobble discs....especially since on several holes you need to throw blind (if you want to go for the pin at least).

Would love to, and will soon as this is part of my territory and will be making this trip often, but it's a private course, and since I don't know my timing, I don't want to pin anyone around my floating schedule. Soon enough I will get it in the calendar and find someone to hit Harmon with.

Harmon is easy to navigate and Jack let me play there alone when I went. I don't know if he's on here, but he's on facebook as Captn Jack if you want to reach out to him.

Ended up getting in late, but was right across the street from ETSU, so I played their 9-holer before it was too dark. I'll be back again and will escape in time to play the better courses, but at least I got to throw
