Today is a fun tournament I’m playing with my pop at his club. His club has been voted the best course in the state, and IS the best course in the state in my opinion.
The format is 9 holes best ball, 9 holes alternate shot, 9 holes scramble. Surprisingly we’ve won this thing a few times and we beat everyone on the alternate shot and best ball. We don’t scramble all that well.
The 18th hole is a long par 5, but they’re redesigning it so it is no longer a 500+ yard uphill hole. It’s a temp green par 3 today.
A report will follow.
500+ yards isn’t that long… Obviously it depends on how far uphill, but even still… The only par 5s that bug me a little are the ones over 580 or so.
The whole is like 535 or something. But it is SEVERELY up hill. In 15 years I’ve reached it once in two by going driver-driver.
The whole club was going nuts when Mike Weir reached it in two: driver-3 iron.
