John - any updates on Strawn Park in Columbia, MO? Any chance it will actually open up this year? Everyone is very excited to get out there and start playing DG.

I second this, I would love to see the final holes that you described the making off so well. If not on DGCR do you have a link to photos/maps etc?

Hell if you have any more back copies of your articles from the magazine I would love to read them too!

Just made the trip back to Selah yesterday. The courses have done well with all the rain that's come through. Was it always the plan to plant more trees on Creekside? If I remember Hole 12 had a couple new, large trees planted in the center of the fairway. Also Hole 10 has grown in so much that the designed lines are hard to see, let alone throw.

Any ideas on what maintenance should be done to keep them playable/enjoyable?

Hole 12 had new trees? When we were there in April, there were a couple new ones on #11 (the little shorty) that made it have tighter lines. There wasn't anything new on #12 at that time....just the same old hay bales.

As for #10, I could barely ever see the lines anyway, ha ha ha!

It really seemed like the main trees in the middle of the fairway on 12 had a couple new large ones there. Either that or they have really, REALLY grown.

10 used to have the straight ahead line as bait, it's still there but almost impossibly unforgiving. One guy with us threw a hyzer-flip down the middle, then a great second shot, and ended with getting up and down for the 4. I think it's the first 4 I've seen on that hole even when playing scramble at AM World Dubs. The right gap you just have to trust that it's there and throw it. First round I just went off the back of the teebox wide right and stayed away from the trees. Still took a 6 because there's no real line to get onto the peninsula - trees have overgrown everything.

Thanks for all the posts and updates. Flying home tonight and I will try to get caught up later this week. Thanks for the notes on Selah -- will look into that. Nice mini, Gator! Garland Scout Ranch course is no longer there (politics) and our recent discussions about bringing it back are not hopeful (politics). Made great strides at Strawn earlier this month, and it could be open by the end of the year. Talk to you all soon.

Mr. Houck, Do you have any updates on the course in Carrollton, Ga? I walked it today and it looks like it gonna be very challenging. I just moved to Carrollton last week & I am excited to have a great course so close by.
Thank You.

KJ,

I heard that the boardwalk engineer was out there today. More tee pads later this week. Could be end of the year -- we are really getting close. Thanks.
