This has GCA get-together written all over it, IMHO.
Course looks great. What is the idea behind the trees in the middle of the bunkers, or is the reverse It is difficult to say but looking at the pictures posted by Tim and those from the club website it looks as though they have planted some silver birches recently.
Anyway to #7:Wonderful startegic par 5.Typical of Devries' desire to give the player options on how to play the hole.Reachable in two for the long hitter, but quite a penalty for missing on the wrong side of the green.
Can we skip #8 and get onto #9.. frankly # 8 was for me all about playing without greed and ego..
Well, that, and actually hitting and holding the green with a wedge in your hand.
I prefer to try for the left center, just short of the big center fairway bunker, then try from that angle, which opposes the general slope of the green a bit better.
For the golfer that enjoys the visual challenge of figuring out what the ground is doing versus what the architect has done to both guide and mis-direct, the tee shot on 8 is one for the adrenal glands.The movement of the ground is so interesting, and so Michigan, it's pure heroin.JK, Would this hole at KC be the most similar to any hole at BN?
....all 7 times, from the Arata memorial tree grove on the left side Still waiting to voice my opinion on that short par 5 hole coming up next......
