Has anyone in Socal played this course yet? I got a chance to play it recently in a practice round... As I'm playing a tournament there on Saturday. They have some very interesting holes on this course... None quite like 18. It was playing 430 from the tips, but the tee is elevated on a mountain. The fairway is 200' below... They advertise it as the largest elevation drop from tee to green in the US. I usually hit my driver 260 to 270 carry. I hit a decent power fade off the tips and only had 86yds left. :-D I know many of you live here in Socal, if you get a chance... Check this place out. I played it for $27 with a cart via Golfnow. Pretty unbelievable price for that caliber of golf. And the greens were superb. The best looking hole in my opinion was the 17th, but there were several solid holes and worth the trip. Here is the photo of 18's massive elevation change. The photo doesn't do it justice to be honest. http://www.flickr.com/photos/mita-sho/175254823/

Wow. As someone who loves the brief empowerment you feel - no matter how unwarranted - when you face a downhill tee shot, that picture you added is borderline pornography. Bet you felt your ball would never land.

As it happens, I've read an article this morning by someone suggesting that elevation in golf course design is a penal feature. The accompanying picture was of a tee location similar to the one you posted. Personally, I can handle that kind of 'penal' all day long...

    • Depends on the swing. The club shaft is not straight at impact, even if you match hand position because the weight of the clubhead will cause the shaft to bend, sending the toe closer to the ground. That depends on your swing speed, and the golf shaft.  Its best just to get fitted for irons and use a lie board. 
    • Sounds like you guys had a great time, I loved reading the reviews. I'd love to hear about some of the best shots you guys hit out there, did anyone go super low compared to how they usually score?
    • Yeah. Eastern Michigan is one of the ones I'll admit not knowing. Pretty weak for someone that went to Bowling Green, but they were the Eagles by the time I got there.  Another one I never knew was the NBA Warriors. Before moving to California, the Philadelphia Warriors used a really hokey-looking Indian character. Obviously, they kept the name but changed the logo.     Really. The fact that the teams are pulling these nicknames is proof positive that people are offended by them. If it was still a real argument, Washington Football Team would have never given up that nickname.  The fact that they did is a case-closer.
    • That one really shouldn't be an issue - if you see it happening, you can tell the player to mark the ball and they have to mark the ball. Rule 15.3a:  
    • If your hands are high up at both address & impact, should your iron address position be toe up or flush with the ground?
