Well, I probably have 1200+/- rounds played at NAD, so I don't get them often. I'm definitely not a beast. I don't really run aces, I don't consider myself the best putter so I throw to park the holes and play for score. I don't really care that much about getting aces, although it's fun to get one now and then.

I love that course. I've hit holes 5,10,17,18 and now 9. Never aced the 2 shortest holes, lol.

Default Making up for lost time

Lifetime aces # 4 and #5 within six days of each other, at the same course! For reference of my relative skill level, earlier in 2018, I ended an ace-less drought of eight years. Now I've hit three in three months, and two in six days!

#4: Dretzka Park, Milwaukee WI 9/27/18: Hole 7 (original course), Pin A, Buzzz



#5: Dretzka Park, Milwaukee, WI 10/3/18: Hole 17, Pin A, 165g Champion Firebird, SKIP-IN!

^Since when does hole 7 at Dretzka have multiple pin positions? Am I just mis-remembering? Isn't 7 the shorty with the Sam's Club wall behind the pin? Is the sign from before that was there or something?

Seven has had 3 placements for awhile. Even though it is the closest course to me I rarely play it. I have not seen it in the long recently and the short is kind of a blah shot, it probably is in the original most of the time.

Dretzka's had some pretty solid upgrades since MKE County went to P2P a few years ago. All the signage was updated between 2015 and 2016, every hole on the course has a minimum of 3 pins, with several putting a 4th pin in and 16 even now has 500 FT+ 5th and 6th pins into the woods by 17's tee!

Also yes, unfortunately, 7 is the hole where that wall went up due to the construction of Sam's Club. The 188' A pin location is by no means a difficult shot, but I'm happy to ace anything.

My question is: Do the other spots even exist? I don't understand where they could be - A pin is only like 40 ft from the wall....

The wall runs at roughly a 45 degree angle relative your line of sight if you're standing on the tee and facing straight, coming closer on the right but angling farther away on the left. The A pin is not terribly far from the wall (probably more like 60 or 70 ft), but the B (was the only pin in the course's early days) and C pins use the increased space you have left of the line projecting straightforward from the tee to where the C pin is truly about 260 away. The diagram on the hole sign is kind of misleading, B and C are farther left of what the sign suggests.
