I have 18 throw able holes on 10.84 acres. Yes there are birdie ops, and most of the holes are shorter than I would like. 2 crossing fairways (somewhat mitigated by elevation), and tight fairways. Shape and terrain have a lot to do with it. And planning. And changing plans. It is very arduous, but immensely gratifying as well. Keep us posted.

I used to play a very fun 18 hole (13 baskets) course on a similar setup. It was fantastic as long as you limit action to one or two groups.

Yeah, IF it ends up happening, it’s a private course for me. Barring parties where people want to play, I don’t see there ever being more than 2-4 people out there. The good news for this idea is my wife really likes the house and land, so that’s increasing my chances just a bit!

I'm working on building one of the most epic courses in the country, 27 holes on 13 acres.

I don't know how much land they're using, but what's left of Brackett's Bluff is also a heck of a course, squeezed into a small area. Two overlapping 9-hole layouts to make 18 holes.

Well, 2 years in we've got 18* holes. So logic might say that a year from now we'll have the final 9 installed. So, lots more epicness to come, but as it stands, the first 18 holes will blow you away.
