Currently It's Rustic But It'll Improve With Time!

Pros: Langes Ranch Park is a little 9 hole pitch and putt that plays around this small resort. The resort is on the small side and I imagine is busier during the summer months. Once you locate the #1 tee pad, the course is easy to follow. The baskets are the Liberty models with the ultra shiny galvanized chains. Even with the shiny chains. they're a little hard to spot in the NW forest here. The pads range from a nice concrete pad on # 1 to natural to roughed out versions on the many of the holes. I assume more concrete pads are in the plans. The signs are very simple little wooden ones which simply have the hole #. There are also simple next tee signs pointing to the next pad making navigation easy.
The holes all seem to be about 200'-250'. # 1 might reach 300'. Those holes in the woods tend to be fairly technical with tight lines. The four in the llama pastures are much more open. I found # 8 to be the only real easy hole on the course. It's just a 200' throw across a field to an open basket, an easy ACE run.
Cons: Except for # 1, the pads are pretty rough right now. On a couple of them, you're kinda throwing out of a hole. I'm never a fan of that.
# 4 was a short 200' (???) downhill through the trees and branches. I couldn't find a route here.
I thought there were places on this course where you could have been teeing off up high and throwing some neat "touch" shots to a basket below.
Other Thoughts: Playing through the llamas on # 1 was interesting. Just remember that male llamas will try to eliminate their mating competition by biting them right in their llama prize packages therefore rendering their opponents unable to breed. Keep that in mind if you happen to play through the male llamas pasture during their breeding seasons. And maybe think about holding your putter in front of your package!
