Default What type of course do you like?

I have some land that I am thinking about putting in a course. It is 100% wooded and was logged in the 30s so its mostly older growth trees and has a ton of logging trails on it. I have roughly 20 acres to work with. I have a very long bomber course about a mile down the road that has very long holes with the shortest being 275ft roughly. I am thinking of making a tight technical course on my land to offset the length of the other course.

Do you think I should go with a tight technical course? Or any other ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Tight and technical sounds like what the property would best support.

Unless you're really looking to clear a lot of land (with the time, labor, and tools to do so), it sounds like you'd be best served to go the "tight and technical" route.

The fact that it'd balance out another nearby bomber style course makes it an even better fit.

All of the above. Among other things, tight-and-technical fits more holes into 20 acres.

But---

I'm not sure you should care what anyone else prefers. It's your land---build the sort of course you like most, because you are going to be the primary user.

And whatever is within your ability to build and maintain. Because you're going to end up working on it, even more than you end up playing it.

I'd go with a nice mix. Or see about mixing in dual tees, if possible.

With 20 acres you probably only have room for a shorter, technical course anyway, especially if you set aside a couple of acres for parking, bathrooms, etc. If it's just for you and your friends, then just find the 18 best holes on the property. If it will be a P2P or open to the public though, you'll need to spend more time thinking about flow, safety, shot variety, etc. If you have lots of newbies or kids that live nearby, you may also want to install 2 or 3 sets of tees to accommodate the different skill levels of the local players.

I suggest that you build the course of your dreams. Some people will love it and others will fine faults. Make yourself happy. Good luck.

I have a dozer so clearing would not be a huge deal, but I would prefer to keep the woods intact if I can. I think the offset would be perfect.
