post #253 of 552

What tees do y'all play? I am worried about having to hit driver twice on each par 4. Just kidding, I hit my 7i about 230 + roll - suck back.

You play whatever tee is appropriate for you. There's no set of tees required to be played, at least there wasn't last year.

Blue tees probably. Otherwise I can't create course handicaps (etc.).

Who do you think we are? @tristanhilton85???


Why not? 3 foursomes and 2 threesomes not so bad eh? I would be surprised if the course would mind.

Because:

a) Mike and I aren't eligible anyway.

b) It's more "fair" if we travel around and visit different groups throughout the day.

c) A threesome is at a disadvantage in a "best 3 of 4 Stableford" and trying to balance it by giving them a higher percentage of their handicap strokes is more effort than it's worth.

Well in that case maybe you and Mike can do one of the threesomes each, so c) would cancel a). Just sayin'. You can do the fair stuff on Saturday.

Anyway, would be cool if you played IMO. No biggie either way.

Did we all play the blue tees last year, i thought we played the white.... Sorry I miss-spoke about the tee situation, but I don't remember playing the blues last year.

My hybrids will get a workout.

I'm going to have to look at what the course plays from the blues, it'll probably be the longest course I've played ever rofl.

post #264 of 552

If we get 18 people, just go with 6 threesomes. Unless Erik has two locals who are playing, so making it 20.

 

 

 

Blue tees are 6475 yards, not too bad. This course it tough because it's kinda tight off the tee, and there are some hazard areas. Its also up and down, bit hilly. so some approach shots play further. 

 

Its a great course though, lots of character.

Now here's a thinker.

post #266 of 552

Ah, I didn't remember it being too long from the whites but I figured it would play around 7k from the blues. Should be fine for me then.

Can you hit driver on most the par 4s (except the one that is 288)?

Depends on the hole. A few of them have hazards that bisect the fairway, so you either take a chance to clear it, or you lay back. I remember hitting a good amount of drivers the last time I was there.

At Fox Meadow? We played the golds there I think. They have black, blue, and gold at reasonable lengths.

Saturday is a two-person or perhaps four-person scramble where everyone uses the same club (i.e. everyone uses their 5-iron or whatever the group decides to use as their one club). It's just to see the course.

 

Again, we have reasons for doing what we've decided to do. Odds are Mike and I aren't going to be playing.

See above. Three is inefficient and rude to the golf course, who cut us a deal and who will have to send two carts out with each slot. Plus 18 = six tee times; we have five. It's also antithetical to have a bunch of threesomes. You meet and play with fewer 33% fewer people. :D

One of the longest 6500 yard courses you'll find.

 

Look at #4 for example. Measures 300 or so, but… I don't think the play is to hit your driver.

 

Par fours where I hit driver from the blue tees:

1 yes

4 no

5 no

8 no

9 maybe

10 yes

13 no

16 usually

17 maybe

18 maybe

 

Anyway, that's the point of the Saturday round - so y'all can see the golf course.

Geez, do you always think about everything and everybody?
