My step-dad played there a few years ago, he seems surprised by not necessarily angry about this. I kinda like it, Trump said he was wanting it to live up to its name as the "Blue Monster," and it's about time courses got more difficult, in my opinion.

I've heard Gil Hanse is a cock.

It's classic Dick Wilson. I love his courses, and this is a gem. I am sad to see it get bulldozed. I enjoyed it beating me up several times. i realize that tour pros were killing it, but it is tough plus for an amateur. And fair and fun.

I am all for making it a tougher course. I do not know what exactly is going to be changed, but from what I heard over the weekend it does not seem to drastic. I like the idea of having water in play for a few holes. Extending teh first hole is fine and bring water in play next to the green should make the first hole tougher and not an "easy" birdie. Making the 15th an island green is a big change and not sure I like it. The changes around 9 and 10 is fine with me, but I do not think 10 needs to be over wter so much. They are not changing the 18 which is good. And adding elevation in the rough to make is better to view the players is a nice idea. Plus, if could eliminate the bail out areas forcing players to try and hit the fairways by hitting a more accurate drive or laying up.

 

Just my thoughts but I would love to see the new layout to see all the changes.
