3 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: The redesign of O'hauser will excite some and upset others. Some excellent, challenging holes have been added: 3 Blue Tee, 5 Gold Tee, 6 Gold, 9 Blue/Gold, 12 Gold, 15 Gold. Multiple pin placements is a plus. Legitimate par 4's and 5 depending on the pin positions. Update 8/26: New green on hole nine creates a great, straight drive to the pin from the blue and gold. New fairway on hole 16 gives a good risk/reward from the gold and blue tees.
Cons: Lots of righting anyhyzers off of the tee.(1, 3gold, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18) Doesn't make them bad, but I throw the same disc on many of these drives. Some Gold tees very hard.(1, 3, 10, 11, 14, 16) Missing long, tight driving hole that doesn't require some type of turn or slide. Seems like most tee shot needs to angle off the tee or late during the drive to find the landing spot. Blind holes due to desire to make the shots harder. (1, 3, 5, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 15, 16, 17, 18)
Other Thoughts: Course needs a lot of play to break in the new holes. Penalty for missing fairway is extreme, but it will get easier. Some holes stand alone as great holes. Longer pin positions will make some holes legitimate par 4 or par 5. (1, 3, 5, 10, 11, 12) I don't think this course makes a good first impression but it will grow on people as they play it more. Rating for just pros would be a 4, but because it is so hard for any other skill level, I lowered it to a 3. Update 8/26: Course is setup with pins in many of the longer positions. Definitely a huge challenge
