Another Houck design is not so quickly making it's way up the ranks.

Hillcrest (Prince Edward Island in Canada), was established in 2012. Being so out of the way, I assume it didn't get much play for a while, so not many reviews initially. But with 6 reviews in 2018, it's seeing quite a bit of love lately. It's been getting extremely high ratings from everyone, TR's included... even a couple if diamond TR's. Seems it's just a matter if when this course will break into the top 10, rather than if.


This Houck fella's gettin' pretty good at this.
I wonder what we could do to convince him to spend some time in Discraft's backyard...



Looks like there

^^^ Like throwing to the peaked roof on a 4-story building from the sidewalk out front. Fun hole.

I had a chance to play Hillcrest this summer, and it was fantastic. I've enjoyed watching the pros shred it up on the CCDC coverage of the Canadian Nationals.

We'll be returning to Maine next summer and I've already got a return trip planned. This time I'll include the Huck It course, which I didn't know about during my summer trip because it wasn't listed on DGCR!! Should have done a bit more research...

Thanks, Bogey. Still haven't done a course in Michigan but would love to. If any parks dept. or land owner is interested, send them our way!

I second this sentiment for WI.

If I get a project that is incredible I will be calling in Houck for reinforcement and to show me how to attack a truly Blue/Gold level course. I simply haven't come across any incredible properties yet in my course design ventures.
