Yep, 7 with the water all down the left and the wall of trees down the right. I used to throw flippy fairway drivers but my only 3's there were with a King Cobra off the tee.

Say 'hi' to Barfield for me. I still use a huge Ching umbrella he left at Shoally Creek.

Word. The Trails is a great equalizer course, with only one hole that benefits a bigger arm. Haha, that shule has eaten many a disc. I remember spending the better part of an hour out their trying to find a miss throw.

I usually go with a straight, seasoned mid so right now it would be my X Buzzz. I love that disc. My first Buzzz. I'm also testing an Element Discs Lithium that is a perfect hyzer flip mid.

Haha, I'm going to see him Sunday, I'll see if remembers it!

You coming around SC anytime soon?

We weren't even on the course when he threw it over there - were just warming up in the parking area. It is probably no more than a couple feet from the road. And I always tried rollers on that "big arm' hole since the tree line around the basket stops most everything.

Don't mention it to him! It's the only working umbrella my 3-year-old hasn't destroyed and I would feel bad not sending it back - cuz I ain't gonna.

An SC trip would be fantastic, but gets further and further away all the time. If you see me this year it likely means either I won the lotto or my wife left me.

How'd the round go? Bag set-up work for you or did you find yourself wishing you had another mid in there?

Shot pretty mediocre (-3, 0). Had a couple of bad breaks with the trees in the second round, hole 14 killed me. Ended up with tag 14 and won a CTP for a Gateway War Spear. I actually bagged a Prodigy M4 that was pretty swell and the Mortar helped out when I needed some beef.

Love Earlewood, really unique course. Not a ton of distance shots but tests every throw in your arsenal. You'll find yourself throwing 'rare' shots like anny FH's from the left rough and OH more than you normally would, especially being unfamiliar with the lay of the land.

Speaking of lay of the land, you will want to use a putter that lands softly for your pitch-up shots - the term "Earlewood roll" should be patented, so prepare mentally for some terrible breaks. I used to play with a guy who only carried an Aerobie Arrow at Earlewood just for lay-up approaches.

If you run short of warm-up time, don't walk the course - get used to putting on those crazy baskets. They do catch but it better be right on the pole, lucky putts or high/wide shots that would drop in other baskets don't happen there.

Have fun, Columbia discers are pretty awesome.

^I've been watching the 2016 Earlewood Classic vid to prep. Thanks for the tip on rollaways, I might throw a DX Sonic in the bag for some upshots.

Gotta admit, I'm straight jelly as the millennials say - you have all these classic Carolina courses at your disposal. If you want to know the deets on anything installed sine 2013 within a 3 hour drive of Gville- I've played it
