I was just wondering... is there a way that TimG could make Extreme courses something that is searchable on the main site? Like maybe have there be a button to click during the review?

I like this idea. I would always start out my vacation and road trip planning with a search of quality "extreme" courses and then add on from there.

I love courses that push you both with quality dg and a bit of grinding physical challenge. It's definitely a factor I take into consideration when I'm designing new holes and laying things out at Hidden Ridge.

Dragon Ridge in Candenton, Missouri is very extreme and features one of roughest sections anywhere. Holes 6-9 have a sign stating that this is a dangerous section and players should be in good physical condition and be wearing proper footwear. So the Valk Kid who failed on both conditions soldiered on. Hole 6 plays down a super steep hill with a goat trail leading down and then 7-8-9 play up this rock strewn ravine filled with the worst jagged rocks one can imagine. Had I had known it was anywhere this bad, I would have skipped this section in a heartbeat.

This hole course is covered with sharp, jagged rocks making walking anywhere treacherous. Previous reviewers tell stories of young, healthy players in their groups twisting ankles and skinning knees.

Back to my experience with this section. I somehow managed not to fall, scrape or multilate my decrepid old body in any way.

I played Idlewild in 2000, back just after it opened. It was one of the first courses I ever played. Somehow, I kept going. It is tough now but back then, it wasn't "beat in" and half an inch off the fairway and you were in massive schule. The course now is absolute cake compared to what it was then. Same hole layout, too!

The Boneyard is a course built on an old copper mine and the course description advises wearing long pants. However, it was hot out the day I played, so I didn't change into the long pants I brought and wore my shorts. My legs were scratched and bloody by the time I reached the third tee.

Lol. I did the same thing. I had been playing nothing but Boone Woods for a year or so when I heard there was a brand new course just down the road. I wasn't aware of all the other local courses yet so I was stoked.

I fought my way through that beast and only lost 1 of my 3 discs. You're dead on about the rough, it was all narrow fairway, then a freaking wall of honeysuckle, grapevine, and stickers once you got off the line. Just brutal. Maintenance crews did mow ALL the grass up and down old 15, so at least there was that going for me.

I remember thinking, "this is really dumb, why would anyone play this crap, it's miserable?". Now it's my favorite and we play it more than any other local course.

I know it doesn't compare to the mountain courses out west, or even some here in NC, but this past weekend I got to play

Richmond Hill in Asheville

As you know from reviews, about a third of the holes play across a deep ravine. Its cleared out very well, and even has steps in a few spots, but still pretty extreme to climb several times. The cool part is 17 runs right up the heart of the ravine.
The course is in great shape now, no long pants required.

I also got to play Robert L Smith in Charlotte last week. Its listed as a physically demanding course, but that is really just the first 4 holes, all very overgrown. I thought about packing it in after #2, but glad I didn't, 5-17 were in great shape. 18 had a steep downhill walk (guess I missed the trail), but it was manageable.
