With the removal of the Yargo course, and from the feedback we've received concerning certain holes from last years Temp Course, we're making some changes to this years layout and we wanted to go ahead and get a potential map out in advance.
Changes from last year we are thinking about:
GONE are two of the woods holes (the peasants rejoice!). But at this time, the dreaded bridge hole does stay in the woods. Remember, this is the Blind Hog.
Instead of coming out of the woods under the trail sign and shooting up the hill, #8 basket is now tucked under that sign. We know folks on #7 will have to wait for players to make it to the #8 tee, but we'll have water under a tent while you wait.
The long pad has been removed from the hole behind the bleachers (taking that fence out of play) and the basket is not as tucked in the woods.
The baseball field in the back is now in play on the new #12.
New hole #14 is an island green with a very elevated tee. Wouldn't surprise me if this becomes the start hole for any playoffs.
There are now 19 holes and many existing holes were made longer (#11,#12,#18) and some new holes are lengthy as well (#15,#16). And yes the par on the downhill hole (old #16, now #17) has been dropped to 3 from 4.
We are still working out what will be OB and what won't. Our goal is fairness. You shouldn't be penalized if a road is in play (like the new #16 for example), but errant shots (like the parking lot on #9 and #18) will be punished. But some roads will be OB (like #14 and #19) by design.
As always, this is a work in progress, and nothing is final til the day of.
