Old Settler's Park in Round Rock, Texas has a 1003' hole with about 4 widely spaced trees. For me it was drive, drive, drive, approach, putt. Nothing interesting about that hole at all.

We did a bunch of basket refinishing at a state park. They had the tool for those one way screws and it was hit-and-miss. We ended up using medium curved jaw vice grips around the outside to get them...
