Agree that Monster isn't an example of nicely executed alt pins. It I don't think the Alts are confusing or detract from the course (spoken like a homer).

That said, course would be better if the Alts were better executed than they are.

This review for a new 1800-foot, 9-holer in South Carolina brings back memories of the wave of questionable Pendleton King drive-by reviews. When you say the course is a work-in-progress, focus on the lake's views, and still give it a 4.5, seems like something doesn't add up. Oh, and you signed up for an account just to post the review.

Oh, and he's vice president of the park's board.

Hard to doubt the credibility of the Park Board's VP.
Maybe it's a helluva niner.

I've bagged 3 "Black Field Aces" (canned the short pin on a fairway shot intended for the long pin)... if you want to aknowledge such a thing. Only recall the specific hole on one of them, but these were the courses:

Hudson Mills Monster, #1
Orange Crush, WV
Westside, GA

Didn't consider any as holed out... wouldn't feel right. It's not like the course/designer tricked me. I simply hit an obstacle on my throw. Still kinda fun in the moment, though, and certainly beats the hell out of a bad kick.
It was Orange Crush #5. I told you we were aiming for the ORANGE baskets! It definitely added a stroke to your score on that hole. It was a great approach shot, too, just right at the "basket tree."

At least we're getting new members for DGCR? Plus, there's a certain level of transparency when the email address is used.
