Alright, my course is probably going to be a fun 9-12 hole course depending on how it shapes up. Woods are THICK right now and need some serious work to cut a handful of holes in there.

As it sits, Iíve got a fun 4 right now. Using what is clear and playing with pin and tee locations itís what Iíve got. I have 3 actual baskets, and a janky 4th ďbasketĒ that is little more than a target, but itís fun to throw at anyway.

ďHole 1Ē in pics. About 280í, the ceiling is low, and its thought to get all the way there in 1 shot.

ďHole 2Ē

Same basket. This time over the pond and through a gap to the pin. Itís tighter than it looks and often blind because of the shadow from the trees. You can barely see the top of the basket, on a good light day. Alternatively to the gap you can lay up to the right and hit the much wider tunnel for a 3. Kicks in to the pond are very possible. I. The future I want to push this tee back in to the woods about another 100í, forcing a layup before the pond then this shot, or a baller move long dead straight with water in the middle tunnel shot.

ďHole 3Ē

Ignore the putting basket I have out right now. This hole isnít going to stick around, and I. The event of a party will probably be moved to take the house out of possible ďwtf was thatĒ grip locks. About 350í, slightly downhill after the flag pole. Big forehand or a well executed flex around the big pine to the right are the plays. Pin is tough to see, but itís in a nice flat clearing, but has thick brush to the left and tall grass long. It can be a tough approach if you donít make it past the pine tree.

ďHole 4Ē

Not pictured. Itís a top of the world from the top of the driveway to the second basket. Havenít measured but I think itís about 525í. Itís a fun shot, with tall grass along it for a good 300í. It doesnít really come in to play, but it can get in your head. There is a landing zone starting 250í down the driveway, that is blind from the tee. Itís downhill so itís easy enough to hit. The pin is reachable, some times, but not for me anyway, on a perfect full flight shot. Downhill helps a lot, Iíve hit probably circle 2 a couple times.

Anyway, thatís what Iíve got for right now. I havenít worked the other 2 targets in yet, but I have some ideas. Summer is fully going here now, so clearing new lanes isnít going to happen until October. Hopefully by then Iíll have a decent tractor to help. Iím toying around with an 120-150í hole right now. Very short, but itís only reachable with a high hyzer with a fairly understable disc through a hole in the tree canopy about 50í from the tee. If you donít hit this 15í or so in diameter hole, you are taking 3 at best. Itís a pretty fun hole, played it with a couple friends a few times.

Really looking forward to fall and things dying down. Iím fairly busy with many other things in life. But my goal in the next year is cutting in 2 holes and rearranging to have a legit 4-5 hole loop. If I do that for the next 3 years, and add baskets as I go, Iíll have a 9 in no time.

Seems like a pretty reasonable timeframe. Best of luck DirtyBirds!

All these years of seeing bits & pieces of Granite Mountain in photos, now I get to see the whole thing. Two thoughts come to mind:

(1) I'd rate it 4.5, just from the video. That looks like so much fun.

(2) If you have a work party to pick up rocks on the fairways, I'm not coming.

Remove all the rocks and Granite Mountain would become Muddy Plain.

Completely shocked how this flyover video and the ACE video have been treated on this site. One ignored, one landfilled.

Done with this site, hard work isnt appreciated at all.

Response from David Sauls above is enough praise to carry you for some time Nate! Much love from here; though, I'm not at all sure I'm going to make it your way...or, if, at my age now, I would survive!

As far as the landfill goes; that just happened because SonicGuy is a t(f)ool...
