Hi all,

I was fortunate to spend a couple of days last week along with 50 other Superintendents from around the country at an industry function sponsored by Toro.  We played Barnbougle Dunes Thursday and Lost Farm Friday in a north-east 1 - 2 club wind.  Both courses were in fantastic condition with the fescue running firm.  I didn't get to ask Phil what speed the greens were, but they were certainly fast enough and rolling pure.

Well done to all involved for a fantastic playing experience.  Bryan - I hope you don't mind me posting a couple of photos in your thread.

Lost Farm 1st.



Barnbougle 10.

Lost Farm has matured nicely by the looks of things.

Is BD10 the most under-appreciated hole on the entire property?

Looks to be in pretty good condition for a course someone told me was dreadful a few weeks ago.
I knew they were wrong but its hard to insist when you have not seen it for a few months. Time for another fix.

It is a fantastic green and one of the stand outs on the course with the variety of pin placements and different shots, and skill, required.  More so on days like ours when it was playing into the wind and uphill.

Brett,

No, I don't mind at all.  Feel free to add more if you like.  Brings back good memories.

I thought the second shot and green at BD #10 was really brilliant.  It really messed with my depth perception.  And, it played just as well downwind when I was there.

How does #7 play with the wind.  It was a (short) brute into a strong headwind.

Bryan,

7 is very interesting down-wind, you have about a square meter on the front of the green to land the ball. 8 was a par 5.5 though!

Scott,

I agree - 10 is an excellent hole. As Bryan says the second shot is a cracker, however the simple strategy of the tee shot is what won me over.
