Only person to give this course less than a 3.0. Its not a great course but its definitely not a 1.0 either. Sounds like someone had a bad day... I like this part...



FYI, if it hits a tree, it probably wasn't a "beautiful" tee shot...

This is the only review he's done and the only course he's marked as played in the 8+ months he's had an account. Sounds to me like somebody felt butthurt after a bad day and decided it was the course's fault...
What I get is a feeling there are no lines due to trees in the way of every line to a point the hole is a bunch of skinny trees or the hole has so many lines that get cut off at some point by a large tree to the point there is no line. At least that is the image in my head.

Plenty of lines, very fair fairways. The review was dumb.

You can just picture the guy standing on the tee after hitting a tree...


"Dammit! Why did they leave that tree there?!?"

I have actually heard complaints almost word for word to that....

Random draw doubles...

I looked at the gentleman like he had lost his mind. The old defunct light pole was only 40 foot in front of tje tee box... shrug...

Was a bad attempt at a joke in reference to the "I am They" thread...

That's reserved for the briars.
So are you saying your trees are clean and friendly?

You darned kids get off my lawn.
You're just lucky someone didn't nice you while you were on the plane, your disc might have created a hole in the plane as it was desperately trying to make it's way to the nearest tree below. That was a close one.

The title of his review should be "The tree that shouldn't be there"

If this reveiwer was writing about the extra 7 holes, I would agree. I played the 2015 USWDGC and those 7 alphabet holes were without a doubt, about the stupidest holes I have ever played in a PDGA Major event. The wooded holes sucked balls as there were barely any pathways, let alone fairways. And who doesn't love a parking lot hole? For this PDGA Major Event, there were little tiny pieces of old carpet tacked down and a stick in the ground with all the details like Hole #, distance and even a drawing of a suggested route, because - what more do you need to host a PDGA Major event?

Too late to edit. I may have accidentally lied. I forgot all about 2011 PDGA Tim Selinske US Masters event. That course, was without a doubt, the stupidest course ever for a PDGA Major Event. Back at that time, the course was on the DGCR Top 25 list. But, I vowed never to "speak" the name of that course so as not to accidentally promote it in some way......
