There are 14 DGCR listed courses within 20 minutes of downtown Huntsville (186 holes) . It's a honey-hole for baggers. You'd need 3 days to hit them all.

Trust me, there will be a course. Perhaps Spring 2020. Only 9 holes though, but i will be over some wicked terrain. 80 to 100 ft down grade changes on a couple holes. 2 or 3 par 4s maxing out at around 600 feet. multiple tees, perhaps as many as four on a few holes and all with unique lines. Lots of multiple basket locations. This is quite the sandbox. Today i put in the second tee for hole 4 and I am scouting for the 3rd and possibly 4th one. Distances 160ish, 220ish are in and looking for lines at around the 270 and 310 foot range.

Mark,

Here I was thinking of you as this young, promising course bagger, someone I could tutor and pass on my course bagging knowledge to. And now, you've turned to the dark side as a course developer reminding me of those who came before you, Martin Dewgarita and Mike Harr, who have given up the ways of course baggers only to be seduced by the ancient ways of course developer.

It somehow saddens my heart.

Congratulations


Not only is Huntsville a bagger's dream, it also has the US Space and Rocket Center. I recommend adding another day to any trip to Hunstville to see it. One of the highlights of all my travels across the US was getting to see the Saturn V rocket, moon rocks, Apollo 16 and the full stack Space Shuttle Pathfinder up close and personal. Sorry for the thread drift...



Shine on you crazy diamond!

Congratulations, Mark. It brings me special joy reaching any course before you. Sadly, it's a rare occasion savored too few times. Thank you for the informative reviews and good luck with the future course development. DGCR is better for having your reviews

Congrats, Mark! You were really cranking them out for a while. I am glad it finally happened for you.
