Default Give us some local flavor

Addin' Some Strokes = Addison Oaks
C@ssholess = the DB's who continuously mess up Cass Benton Hills
Stoner Creek = Stony Creek (i.e. before it got cleaned up w/pay 2 play... things are much, much better now )
Mt. Annie = Mt. Airy
Idlemild = Idlewild from the shorts, ignoring the OB

What colorful names have locals given to courses in your neck of the woods (or to the people who frequent them) over the years?

Southeast Park (Columbia, SC) is known as Wallyworld, after the designer, Scott Wallace.

Not in my neck of the woods, but Brandywine is known as Brandywind. Though I played it on a 105 degree, sultry, breezeless summer day. But I can imagine the wind the open hilltop must get.

Leftywood Hills = Lakewood Hills, White Bear Lake, MN
Strokewood = Oakwood, Cottage Grove, MN (now not as tough as it used to be)

Fort Wenty

Blatnick Park DGC is on a landfill.............. sometimes called Blatstink, because of the methane vents.

Joralemon was shortened to the J, just because the name was too long and debate still goes on as to HOW to pronounce it.

Joseph Davis SP is also known as JD or the Dizzle.

Ridge Rats - a derogatory and well deserved name given to the rude, etiquette lacking, thieving young punks who frequent the course at Chestnut Ridge Park.
