Lido Being (Re-)Built at Sand Valley

Hole-18-Lido.jpg?w=640

Sand Valley in Wisconsin, already home to two of the top Golfweek’s Best Modern Courses in the United States, has big plans for a third 18. And while it will be new, this track by Tom Doak won’t be…

A guy on GCA has been digitally re-creating the course, and I've heard they're going to use his map to convert it to a topo-map with 1' increments.

Pretty amazing.

LOTS of pictures in that article that I encourage you to check out.

He said it. I didn't. He did. Yup. 

Weren’t you there when we talked about going back for Lido? I’m pretty sure we discussed it amongst those of us who were at the food truck when @cipher and @Hardspoon were playing The Sandbox on the last day at SV.

I don’t really have a bucket list, but this one makes the cut. I’d make another WI/SV trip sometime in the future.

I am not really even sure why exactly but this course is just fascinating to me. Even though it is a replica. Maybe because it is so different from the others there, but it just looks fun.  I have to play it one way or another. 

Whistling was an experience I am good with playing just once. The SV property I feel like I need to visit every year with my proximity.

Whistling a bit too rich for my blood at $700+ but SV/MD is a solid deal.

I'm curious enough to be geeked up about it for sure.

I think it’s fascinating to me because it’s a replica. Also it’s a replica of a course that no longer exists, so the idea of being able to play a course that I couldn’t have otherwise is appealing.

If you are interested in knowing more about about this course here are a couple videos for you.

From the Golf Channel, this is the most comprehensive video I have seen about the course:

This one first talks about some of the history, and then you can see the holes one by one.

It is starting to look pretty incredible @iacas.  The channel par 5 hole has some interesting options for how to play it with a more aggressive fairway to the right that looks tough to hit. It is around 8:20 in the 2K21 video. Many of the green complexes look amazing as well. I can't wait.

    • Every year they have a "big deal" hickory tournament south of here in Oregon.  Totally fascinates me.  Hickory clubs, dressing the part, flasks etc.   Personally, I'll take my hickory on the BBQ pit... USHO/2021 – Northwest Hickory Players  
    • I was always a big Mighty Mouse fan:  
    • Well, with their QB back, Penn State decided to lay an egg. Though, with the new college football overtime rules (going to 2-pt conversions after the 3rd OT), they went to 9 OT!!!! There was a point that neither team converted on a 2-pt conversion a combined 8 times in a row! No one could get 3-yards! I am more upset that this devalues Penn State when Ohio State probably trounces them. 
    • Shorter flight, no spin. Gotta land it before the green a lot and let bounce it on. I like hitting the driver. I find it really forces me to swing smooth with a mild tempo. You don’t really use the Wedge(Niblick) around the greens other than when you are forced to flop it over something, which is tough to do. Often you will use a Mashie which is lofted similar to a 7 iron around the greens. The biggest learning curve is just in hitting the ball cleanly. The front edge on these clubs is very sharp.
