Mark, thanks, and no worries.

Thanks also to DonJuan for his comments. The parks crew did all they could do get the course playable by the end of the day Friday. Sounds like they didn't quite make it. Please note:

* There will soon be a crossing installed on #2

* It's sounds like the 18 Next Tee signs did not go in. They will likely be the biggest and nicest Next Tee signs most people have ever seen.

* Some of the limbing may not yet be done.

* Even though they did massive clearing of brush, I'm hoping they'll be able to do a bit more.

* We should finally be getting OB markers on #17

I asked an awful lot of these guys, and they really stepped it up, as the Live Oak crew did last year. As the club in Abilene is doing. Attention to detail is one of the things that's makes the difference between a good course and a great course.

The final improvements should be there soon. So glad you two (and a few others we heard from) are enjoying it.

John and crew,

Thanks for getting all this done for my visit in April. You really shouldn't have.

You may be right, Cy. But what's done is done.

This might come in time but I'm hoping there will be an over view map of the whole course. Whats been explained so far looks great but it's hard to imagine it in context of the landscape.

Stay awesome.

I just made a new page for this course since it's a pretty big redesign. Like Anthony G mentioned, getting a new map up (and photos!) would be awesome. I've filled in all the hole data, I guess at some of the longer holes being par 4 but if that's wrong please feel free to go in and fix them.

All pins were moved to the short position today. Makes it more enjoyable to me, I've hit 3 baskets off the tee, just none of them stuck for an ace yet. I believe it'll stay in this setup until after the Nick Hyde amateur weekend.
