Never thought I'd see those two logos together ;D


Goat is so grassy this year it's unplayable ::) ::) ::)
can't get a tee long enough in the tall grass and could lose a ball on front of a green
I'm sure it looks good from a chopper though...

Jeepers...I don't recall seeing these pix before.  Jeff....you reckon Woodhall is a rinse n' repeater on the back nine, but this isn't? 

Stumped in Worcestershire.

I literally just busted out laughing.
The Goat and Woodhall.... in the same sentence. ;D ;D ;D


May have something to do with expectations...
and to be fair, we were playing Woodhall in March


Actually, you've described the 9 holes at The Goat perfectly
Rinse(in a good way)...and repeat

I happened upon this Shelter Island GC photo and thought it needed a home somewhere on GCA.

After giving this thread a read I figured I should take the ferry over one day to see what this place is all about.  I figured since I live only 15 minutes from the north ferry worst comes to worst I can go to sunset beach for an afternoon. This course was a blast. I loved the par threes, especially #4, where else can you play a hole like that on an empty course for less than $20? Iíve now played it 4x this summer and learned something new each time. Last time I was there I grabbed a pencil from the scorecard jar in the pro shop and realized it was a pencil from the Bridge wonder who that was from.  ;)

Above scorecard from back in the day-not sure from what decade.
Was given to me last night on a drop in visit returning home from Gardiner's Bay who was co hosting Met PGA Pro-Pro with The Bridge


A nice article about this year's Goat Open that appeared in the Shelter Island Reporter (credit to Mary Fran Gleason)

I tried looking up Goat Hills website to see if they are open right now and it appears the website is no longer active.  Wonder what that is about since the website used to have the information for the restaurant there as well.
