That's not me on that green- I would have been wearing shorts. 

Brian's instagram photos have really been amazing ( https://www.instagram.com/bschneidergolf/ )- and of course the sculpting work that they are doing is the reason.  That 10th green complex (in his latest pics) is something to behold.  For now, you have to use your imagination for the waste areas and the scruff, but seeing pics of the original should make that easier to visualize.

I truly can't wait to play it with you guys!

My goodness - the sheer audacity of the undulations and the scale looks jaw dropping. This will (was?) not be a course of half measures. Just look how deep that thumbprint is on the short hole. Holy smokes! I can't wait to see it!

Another constructing Lido in Wisconsin article worth reading - https://www.golfdigest.com/story/the-lido-sand-valley-robotic-bulldozers/amp?__twitter_impression=true


Here’s a link to a podcast with Brian Zager about his involvement in the project and the use of computer technology etc in its design and construction - https://www.thesidehilllie.com/amp/episode-7-brian-zager-mapping-the-lido?__twitter_impression=true

Is there a scorecard / hole yardage available? The flyover / renders are amazing but trying to get a feeling for distance.

The yardages in 1920 were as follows:


1st - 384
2nd- 421
3rd- 175
4th- 466 [on direct route]
5th- 378
6th- 493
7th- 469 [also a par 5 I think]
8th- 234
9th- 357


10th-414
11th-408
12th-433
13th-316
14th-148
15th-404
16th-206
17th-563
18th-424


On our version, you will be able to play from these yardages -- the "1920 tees".  But there will also be a tee further back on quite a few of the holes -- the 2nd, 4th, 6th, 7th, 11th, 12th, 13th, 15th, 17th, and 18th [I think].  I have not measured all of those out, but they should add between 300 and 400 yards to the "2020" tees.  Note that these are all possible because the holes were stretched apart [widened between holes] for safety reasons, which left room for more tees.

For those following along, there are some great recent updates on the Lido website.


Some incredible aerial photos are shared, with my favorite being the last photo on this webpage: https://thelido.com/updates/2021/5/3/initial-clearing-begins-hrs63-xjrb7-zdes4-tdfw4-fhscp-87fjx-fbyt9.


All of the updates can be found here: https://thelido.com/updates

Nice job by all involved as they document the process!

Got to check out the magic happening in Rome, WI yesterday!  What an absolute marvel that TD and his guys are re-creating!
The greens are MASSIVE and so are the contours/features!  Original or not, I think this is going to be a very special golf course and I can't wait to play it.

Looks very cool! Can't wait to play it when it opens.


I believe this has been answered, but will right of 4 be OOB? Also, what is the plan for the 'native' areas? Will they be left as exposed sand, or is there a plan to plant something in these areas (like a marram, etc), which would replicate how brutal the non-playing surfaces' seemed to be?

Right of #4 will be marked as a lateral hazard, I believe, though we are hoping people won't try to play from over there.  If we marked it OOB that would be stroke and distance, which is not how the original hole played, either.


They are just starting to seed a native mix into the areas between holes.  Michael Keiser preferred to go with a mix that is native to Wisconsin [because the resort has made ecology and native habitat a strong ethos], so no marram -- I don't think it's entirely coincidental that it will play somewhat easier than the original Lido as a result.  Personally, I would have liked to see some marram [or there is a beach grass that's native to Wisconsin] to replicate the texture of Lido more accurately, but he who buys the seed, makes the rules.

Was fortunate to walk several holes at the Lido last week.  The green site at #4 is pretty spectacular, as is the green for #12 just next to it.  The Alps also looks incredible. 


Hat tip to Tom and all.
