    Default LONG #17 at Meade/Olin

    Pushed one all the way through the chains on from the long tee on #17. I threw the turnover route (which I NEVER do) with a glow orc and it hit dead center and fell out the back. Rrrrrrr!

    I guess the turnover route is the way to go if you nearly aced 17 from the long. Sucks it didn't go in.

    Didn't realize there was a long 17 at MO...how much longer is it than the old hole? The old hole was like 280'ish, right?

    nice shoot jeremy. the long tee is back just in front of the road. i think its something like 340ft but i've only played it once.
    All I need is some tasty waves and a cool buzz and I'm all right.

    I backhand as a hobby, I putt to pay the bills.

    yes about 60 to 80 ft longer and about 4 more mature trees with nicks from my discs is the only difference. you probably shot that blindfolded Jeremy, nobody likes a showoff!!

    Yeah, the course has changed a bit, Daniel. After the tornado we added:

    (All descriptions are as if you were standing on the tee facing the pin.)

    An extra pin on one. (100' left and 50' back from original)

    An extra pin on seven. (30' right and 60' back from original)

    An extra pin on eight. (60' left from original)

    An extra pin on nine. (30' right and 60' back from original, roads OB)

    An extra pin and a mando on 13. (60' right from original)

    An extra pin on 15. (30' right and 120' back from original)

    An extra pin and tee on 16. (the tee is 30' left and 30' short of the original, the pin is 70' right of the original)

    An extra tee on 17. (the tee is 30' left and 60' behind the orignal)

    All the above items are complete and concreted in.

    I'm currently looking at adding a new pin on three and 18. The trees that forced a roller on #3 are gone. It's a wide open shot to the pin. I'm going to add a tee that's about 50' back and 20' to the right of the original to force a slight turnover.

    On #18 I've got a shorter tee in mind but it's a harder hole. It's about 50' short and 100' left of the original. It will create a blind shot to the pin and I'm trying to place it to where overhead shots will NOT be an option. It's a GREAT hole. I'm also going to elevate the basket on a mound about three feet and we're hoping to plant a few trees (hopefully dogwoods). It's going to be a signature finishing hole when we're done with it.

    I went there once just before the FATPAD in '08, after the tornado. I remember the course being decimated. It was sad, because it was such a beautiful, tree-filled park. It still is, but so many were taken down.

    It's great to hear changes were made to accomodate Mother Nature's changes. I'll have to get out there soon to check it out. Sounds like it's more challenging than before. Certainly sounds like fun!

    Here's some of the layouts and here's a key to understand them.

    OT = Original Tee
    NT = New Tee (meaning it's poured)
    PT = Proposed Tee (meaning it's currently under design)

    OP = Original Pin
    NP = New Tee (meaning the collar is in the ground is it's now possible to have a basket there)

    M = Mando
