I'd also like to extend a huge thanks to all volunteers at the BTC- it was a blast. Would have been nice to see a bit more sun and less nor'east winds, but it's kinda hard to complain when you think about playing a round in, say, Michigan right now
As far as the course was concerned, I really liked the layout - short but tight ruled the day. I particularly loved holes 3(sweet tunnel), 4(beautiful look from the tee!), 8, 9(this tee could also play to the practice basket!), 13, 14(OB really changed this one), "16", and "18".
There were a couple of things that for me weren't as successful - and I say this with full appreciation for Todd et al, I know how much hard work goes into a full course re-layout!
Hole 2 : BunCR rule may be better suited for a true tournament situation, with Am2 and above. By the time my group got to the tee, there were at least 5 groups waiting behind, as a result of players in groups ahead taking numerous(like, 5++) throws to get on to the island. Drop zone for faster play next time?
Hole "15" : The OB behind the hole, extending perpendicular from the walking path, down the hill towards regular 15/16's fairways... nobody in our group knew there was an OB line there. Three of us would have attempted different drives/upshots if we had known. Has it always been there, or is this a recent addition? If it's been around for ages then we're just dumb and I retract this critique. I could have sworn the last time 14C was used, that OB line didn't exist.
I chuckled when I saw hole "15", because I remember from the weekly I ran where I had two baskets in on 14, you saying to me "That would be a sick shot, from 17's tee to 14C"... didn't think you'd actually go for it!
