Thanks, Mark. We really appreciate your support for the course ! Enjoyed meeting all your friends from Charlotte. The record rainfall in May has us scrambling to keep up with the weeds and questioning the sustainability of the course moving forward, so I'm glad you are getting multiple plays in this year. Closing in July and then need to re-evaluate to see if we are up for another maintenance round for the fall.

I just uploaded my hole-by-hole ratings in the Files section of the course page. My numbers had Sugaree coming out as a Blue level course. The estimated elevation changes will give people an idea of the ups and downs. It was such a pleasure to replay each hole of this majestic course in my imagination (with the help of pictures on DGCR of course!) Nothing can describe seeing those rock formations in person, though!

Thanks guys. Lowe, when you come over this morning,you will see that #1 basket is several feet lower than last year's position.
Also, gonna probably delete hole #8 and use alt pad on left to play all the way to #9 as a par 4;since I lost a par 4 by splitting hole 1. That will put us at 24 holes. Tinkering around with 6 new holes. Would like to show them to you if you have time.

The course is growing stronger and I'm growing weaker. I can see I better get up there soon, before it's more than I can play.

I'm reminded of how many times visitors have asked me when we built Stoney Hill. I can only answer that we don't know; we're still building it.

Why is Sugaree listed as extinct again?

Mando decided he doesn't want the course on the site anymore.

Thank you, Tim, for keeping us posted on this matter and remaining professional.

Despite living within a few hours of this course, I have no desire to visit. I appreciate those who have spoken out and shared their experience ...

Oh, so you have never played the course, but have an opinion...interesting. I also have an opinion, I'm glad you never set foot on the course.
