Ha - If you are a fan of flat greens you just got a wake up call on the first hole (and you clearly teed it on the wrong course) - that looks like the roof of the saddle dome in Calgary.What is the effective area of the green and how many pin positions would be available?It looks like the left side is not pinable?Fun stuff indeed.
Patience, Michael. I have one more Lost Farm picture when I get to the 16th hole. But, don't wish away BD.
Bryan,I think No. 2 is the least interesting hole on the course, and not surprisingly, it resides on the least compelling land at Barnbougle Dunes. I'm not sure whether the bunker complex on the left hand side of the fairway was constructed to provide some balance to the hole, but it seems a more natural location for them would have been cut into the dunes along the right side.

Tom D:The wind pattern Bryan alluded to -- is that the prevaling headwind you get when playing the first two holes during their summer season ? was that part of your design efforts to include such a situation with that in mind?do cross wind patterns routinely happen there -- or is it more headwind / downwind elements? should the wind flip from what Bryan experienced does the design account for that and is it equal to what it is when the prevailing blows?thanks ...
