I'm definitely going to use it as my doubles tourney course from now on, whether people like it or not.

Is there a support group for private course owners who can't quit tinkering with their courses ? Sounds like the Sauls have the same affliction.
I always hedge when someone asks when the course was finished. It's never finished!


For this 2-in-1 concept, I always imagined designing epic holes, at least 600', then seeing if they could be divided into shorter holes, rather than trying to combine two shorter holes. Alas, on the one example at Stoney Hill, that's not the way we did it. Fortunately for us, ours is in a more open part of the property, rather than carving it through the woods.
