Holy crap that's a lot of trees gone. Seems like that entire hill was decimated. So many open lines and routes now. That makes me sad to see it like that but happy that the course is back. Thanks for posting, Greg.

Agreed. Very sad. Looks like it needs redesigned.

I wouldn't go that far. Maybe replant a few strategic trees to help reshape some lines. With the course reopening shortly, there's still probably decisions to be made or plans for the course in terms of stuff like that. Wouldn't be surprised if nothing happened immediately. Looking forward to going to play there again. Haven't been since 2012.

I noticed it on 13, 15 and 16, and it hurt me too, but it doesn't seem to make it that much easier. A shank on 13 will be punished more. And 17 is as tough as always.

Whats the story with A-E? The cave tee is a signature of Holler. There were also 3 more holes added right before it closed that peeled off from 17. Is it just a lack of baskets?

I'm super excited about this. A huge thanks to all who are bringing it back.

Probably have to replace half the forest if they have as much Ash as the rest of this region...

Those holes weren't actually on the original owner's property and had to be negotiated for to use the land. That was my understanding of it anyhow. With the new management of the property, I doubt that land is available. Also would need additional baskets to go there since the original buckets were sold off after closing.

Really don't think they will be able to get use of that land with the history of the previous owner.

I almost didn't post the video because it made me sad to see the destruction as well.

That doesn't look like a course I'd like to play right now or even walk the land. Glad I did once a few years ago.

^The whole character of the course was changed by taking down all those trees. I'm just judging by what I could see on the video, but it's hardly the same course that it was. It looks like some great holes were left untouched, like 17, but the combination of the logging and the loss of the letter holes is a game changer.

I would absolutely play the course if passing through, but what I saw on the video makes me sad. I guess it's better to have part of Holler than no Holler though.
