I enjoyed the course. Really enjoyed the company. Did not play well. Did hit a handful of really good shots. Generally followed shortly thereafter by a horrible shot. It was a great time. 

Ditto. 

The course certainly had some faults. It was squeezed onto a parcel of land half of which was barely suitable for golf. So I think the architect did a mostly good job with what was given to him.

I was less happy with the course setup and maintenance. Greens were bumpy and speed was very inconsistent from one hole to the next. Too many cups were cut 3 yards from the front, and many others were cut on top of humps or on slopes 2% or more. It is no wonder pace of play was almost 5 hours.

My other gripes are that many of the original sand traps have been removed, dummying down the design intent to save money, and cart paths were often too close to the playing areas.

I probably would not play there again.

Maybe one with fewer than nine blind shots in the first eight holes and fewer 210-yard par fours. 🙂

Yea, those first three par 3's were all effectively long iron shots. BLAH!

Hole 2 and Hole 5 were OK. The rest on the front nine were meh.

Really late to this but had a blast seeing and playing with everyone again and meeting and cool folks.  Thanks, @iacas, for organizing it.  Can't wait for the next one!

This was the crack WiFi security @billchao and I had in our hotel in Erie.

You should have budgeted more for the hotel than the round of golf 🤣

Hopefully you got a good night's sleep:

    • Day 18: Mirror work again. Still working on set up - knees a little more bent and hips over my heels more. 
    • I started my golf journey in June 2021 and landed here a the Sandtrap.com pretty early on.  Everyone I've met in golf -- both here and elsewhere -- has been so kind and helpful.  I'm deeply honored to be the 2021 Rookie of the Year.  Hopefully the award isn't like the "Best New Artist" Grammy.   Here's looking forward to a great golf journey full of great golf people.  ⭐ My heartfelt (and well deserved) congratulations to the other winners. ⭐
    • Day 7: Did more work hitting balls outside today. Lots of wind last night blew the net and mat all over the yard, so spent some time putting my practice area back together and measuring out distances for Mevo+. Worked with 7-iron doing rehearsals on backswing piece, and then hit balls with 7-iron working on transition.
