I can't believe I haven't commented here before. The Bear is the first thing that popped into my head as well.

Leila Arboretum in Battle Creek, MI. Has some of the most outrageous, long lines on an extremely hilly course. Just kicked my butt.

LOL.....every time I get out there, I seem to forget how tough of a run that course is. Hope all is well, man.

I remeber Addison Oaks kicking my ass, but I have not played it in over 20 years. Langley Pond was pretty brutal. The IDGC courses are no gimmies.

Have to agree with this. Handyman Ace Hardware was a butt whooping, too.

Spencer Davis at Ozark Mtn (RIP'D) annihilated me. Iffy Hollers (RIP'd) made me holler, too. Spectacular courses, but they really are challenging.

Thrembo mentioned Addison Oaks (or as some call it: Adding Some Strokes... to which I say hmmmm. It doesn't look that tough and I can't put it in with the others I listed, but whenever I play it, I just seem to go from bad lie to bad lie, because for some reason, I just don't play smart golf there.

Toboggan is the most physically demanding course I've played, and the lines you have to hit are trickier the more worn down you are.

At least you didn't have to give anyone mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

Spencer Davis was so grueling when I played it in the summer that at one point I just laid down to die. I had played it in the winter before, but once I got out there on a hot and humid day it was the most horrible, exhausting round I ever played. By the end I think there was just some part of my reptilian brain still functioning that was making my feet shuffle forward, otherwise I would have just died out there.

Addy is the one that comes to mind for me too and I feel the same way, it doesn't feel like it should be that difficult but for some reason really is. Case in point, played out there on Saturday and threw probably the best drive I've ever had on #6. The result? Me thinking, 'well that'll be an easy up and down'. Birdie wasn't even in the picture. Ended up feeling pretty good about my round at +8.

The flip side is that Addy is the only course where I've aced multiple holes though (in spite of countless rounds at Firefighters). There's a reason why it's my favorite course in the area I guess...

Good thing Paul and you never actually stopped breathing... not sure I was ready to lock lips with either of you.

Toboggan's a workout (just ask Simon) but Spencer Davis took more out of me.

All the really great courses are so far beyond my skill set, it gets kinda hard rank their diffuculty.

But I know a great course when I see it.

Secret to Nevin is throwing mids off the tee.
I played most of that round using a Comet and a Storm off the tee, and did reasonably well.

Mids off the tee is the secret to many a course.
