Assuming the bushes are dense enough to form a hedge, and not be scattered to stop some shots, yet let other shots through.

Devil's advocate. I tuck a tee back in the woods where overhead branches block overhand shots, am I depriving players of using their skills?

If I design a hole where players can thwart my intent...

Fair enough...particular if you throw rollers over OB (rollers being the specific instance in this thread).

One of the criteria was avoiding extreme head and humidity. In Atlanta and Charlotte, that only works in early August if you can find indoor courses.

The NC/TN mountains have some excellent courses and are much cooler than the rest of the Southeast. Plus, the drives from course to course are scenic.

It was an amazing story, that he rescued it and gave it a few more years of life.

Just one more reminder that private courses are ephemeral. Play them while you have them.

Thanks. Very interesting. I was thinking in terms of hole-by-hole, seeing of some holes had a greater spread in the ratings, than others. After which, I'd ponder what it meant.

If you really want to see what's mathematically possible, look at the younger kids in a juniors tournament. I think I've seen one in the high 200s.
