This is great to hear. Do you have a thread on your course or pictures you'd be willing to share?

Dave, If you ever find yourself near Austin Texas, you need to take a detour and play Flying Armadillo (Gblambert's courses.) The Gold layout is truly iconic. Still the most fun course I have ever played, and its not even course.

Hey looks even better in the Spring all green and stuff... keep going man it looks awesome...

Around my place the standing rule is you can clear bush and branches before your shot, if you want to do work to make your line better go for it. Worked out well in the early years of the course.. Worked great got 10+ man hours of work every tourney, 5 min at a time. Might put a stop to it soon though. If that helps you out at all.

I quite like this idea. My literally "rough around the edges" course could use a little extra elbow room.

Yeah when the kids from the middle school have come to play it they say it's their favourite course mostly for that reason... plus it's short.. I always play with a light half serrated pocket knife in case I need to remove some Scotch broom, and you can use larger sticks as a bat to shave off twiggy dead branches off the trees quickly.

Hole 4s evolution over the last 10 months. This comparison is from the short tee (green). It's about 200 feet. The red tee is at roughly 260, white at 300 and blue at 380 feet.
