Did anybody else find the back 9 at Eureka to be kinda boring to watch. Loved all of Northwood but watching the back 9 of Eureka to me just got old.

I think most of the back 9 is quite boring. 10 and 11 are both pretty easy shots for MPO with the only real difficulty being if it is windy. 13 is ok, but then 14 is similar to 13 (minus the drive). 15 is also a pretty easy MPO hole. 16-18 I think are fine.

When I go to Ledgestone, I tend to watch through 11 and then abandon that card and go set up near 17s green, so I don't really make watching 12 a priority.

I find the course as a whole boring to watch. NorthWoods should host Leadstone from now on.

The back 9 really is not a fun watch. When I am watching live, hole 13 puts me into a coma. I know there's drama with the water, but it takes forever to play and is just 12 consecutive hyzers from the whole card. Usually I watch live and then the post-produced later to get better views and hear different commentary, but I am really struggling to get through the post-produced Eureka rounds

Ledgestone just isnt ledgestone to me anymore and hasnt been the past few years. Northwood was an amazing course before all the changes and now it is arguably a lot better so good job there but cutting out McNaughton is just a shame. I get that there is no cell signal there but that shouldnt be the reason a course doesnt get played.

Agreed. And as its a par 5 I tend to tune out and forget how many throws so and so is into the hole. Just like, get it over with or throw it into the lake to make it interesting (or into the basket from way out)

Eureka (like a lot of courses on the Pro Tour) just strikes me as the kind of course that I wouldn't play really under any circumstances.

Northwood strikes me as a course that would shove me down and take my lunch money, and then I'd get in line to let it do it to me again.

This isn’t the place to start a woods golf vs park golf thread, buuuuut woods golf is better.

I mean I like park golf, but usually in park golf you aren't throwing around a freaking water tower and pretending it's a great hole.

It is relevant since thats what worlds just was. Overall it was a good test of overall skill with the two courses complimenting one another but Eureka is just boring to watch and I agreed with the above statement. I would only play Eureka to say that I have but I would continuously go back for more of Northwoods. I spent a year in Peoria for work and I played almost everyday in that area. McNaughton and Northwood were the two best courses in the area. The OG Eureka is a terrible course so the Ledgestone layout makes a lot of sense for a lot of reasons but it is boring to watch.
