Map is a must. #'s2, 5, 7, were completely unplayable. I skipped #10 (one of the courses more interesting holes) because a family was fishing way too close to the basket for me to play the hole... and I got the feeling I was the odd man out.


There's also unlisted two unlisted holes (15A & 15B) that play back up the hill between #15 #16 on the map.

I can't speak as to Earhart's current condition (I can confirm there was heavy damage to the course caused by hurricane Irma) but I will talk to a few of the Miami area golfers and can get back to you as that trip looms closer. Feel free to pm me with some minor trip details (especially as we get closer to your trip), perhaps I can take a day off and show you some courses either here in Broward county or in Miami-Dade.

I'd forgotten about Irma, makes sense that clearing downed trees from a course wasn't a priority.

Anyone know why Ronnie Van Zant Memorial is listed as one 36 hole course instead of two 18 hole courses???

Personally agree with you. Everything about it feels and plays like two separate courses, different location in the park, even a sign for the designating the back 18 as "Rattlesnake Challenge."

But the baskets on Rattlesnake Challenge are actually numbered 19 - 36, so I suppose that makes it a 36 holes course...but it don't feel that way.

Realistically, you're just talking about the semantics of how it's listed on DGCR.

The only real advantage of listing as two 18's is that we can rate and review them independently... and bag another course.

Hey Mark, when are you going to lift the review block on Oldsmar? We're going up to play the new Sun King course this morning and there is a strong possibility that we will play Oldsmar again today.

Waiting for Trevor to give me the go ahead. I messaged him last week. He said it was close. Hopefully February.

PLayed her today and it seemed like it was pretty well done too me. I 'm not sure what he could do now to improve on it.
