I like it a lot. The scenery is really nice and the elevation changes are great. There was good variety of shots required, and many of the holes had different ways to play them, depending on your aggressiveness. I liked the liberal use of hazards, which I feel are superior to OB in most scenarios as I am not a fan of relocating one's lie.

All in all, if a tournament has to happen on a bolf course, it should happen on one as interesting as this.

I actually got through all of round one. Drew, Philo, Bradley and AB was a pretty interesting card. First time I saw the Goat Hill course on video, so that was another motivation. Not sure if I'd get through a second round now that I've seen how all the holes play.

If I had happened to pick a round where AJ was on the mike, there's a near zero chance I'd get through more than a couple of holes.

Agreed that Goat Hill is more interesting than most ball golf courses for DG, but I have a strong preference for woods golf.

Personally, I prefer Gleneagles to Goat Hill

The only ball golf course I've ever really enjoyed on coverage was the one at Portland Open last year. Just a gorgeous property with a good amount of trees to keep it from getting monotonous. Goat Hill just kind of bores me. Throw it a country mile. Then lay it up over a green and putt. Placement golf isn't that tough for these guys.
