Super-Secret Private Course was a ton of Fun!
Pros: Super-fun 9-hole course built on private property in Jonesburg, MO. Hole one is a flat open throw, 2 throws longish downhill to the treeline, then 3-8 are in the woods. Very tight fairways that force you to throw forehands, thumbers and controlled backhands through stands of skinny trees. Some minor elevation changes throughout. Then 9 throws from in the woods out into the open again.
OJ was exceedingly friendly and truly a fan of the game. He went out early this morning before we arrived and spraypainted the tees and arrows leading through the course!
Natural tee pads were flat and covered with leaves, but entirely serviceable. The paths and fairways were lined with logs and big branches, making navigation intuitive and clear.
Cons: Being a private piece of land, there were no amenities like restrooms, but wasn't a problem.
The baskets were portable, and spit-outs were a risk, but again, totally serviceable.
Everything seemed pretty short, but deuces were elusive given the tightness of the layout. (Not so much a con as a fact)
Some of the holes had luck-ways more than fairways, forcing shots that I don't practice enough.
Other Thoughts: Turtle Oaks was a joy to play. The holes are not very long, and in most cases the next tee is very close to the previous basket, but that was fine as its not a public space.
It is definitely worth playing (we played 3 rounds), but make sure you make arrangements with OJ prior to coming out.
Thanks a lot, OJ!
