Wind SW @ 11
This ended up being the last course, number 13, of the trip. I had one more planned, but just didn’t have the energy to get it done. A special addition to this course was the addition of a good friend, Ty! He is one of a handful of guys I play with on a regular basis and it was great having along!
As we pulled into the park, the ‘lake’ was very low. Fortunately, it wasn’t the main lake because the course is literally designed around it. We found the grass a bit tall. Using a picture of the map on the course sign we got started and then it was just a matter of walking around the lake.
The first third of the course is pretty flat and open. Things get much more interesting with Hole 6 which goes across the corner of the lake. The Basket on 6 is located close to the water in front and the sidewalk behind and has trees close.
The next few holes add elevation and trees. When you get to 11, placement starts getting more important with trees, OB and structures.
It’s a walk from Basket 13 and Tee 14. The next 4 holes have narrow fairways water on the left and road on the right. Trees and a few manmade artifacts add to the difficulty.
Hole 18 is fairly wide open and finishes the course by going over part of the lake. It’s not particularly difficult or touchy and isn’t a great finishing hole after surviving the previous four holes.
After Norton, it was my next favorite course on this trip. Ty and I both thought it was fun, challenging and would love to play it again. If I lived a bit closer, I wouldn’t thik twice about a day trip to play these two courses. If you haven’t, you should consider heading this way and enjoying these courses
