Is there a scorecard / hole yardage available? The flyover / renders are amazing but trying to get a feeling for distance.
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?
Is the predominant wind direction in Wisconsin different from Long Island (I presume it is) and are the holes in the relative same direction so that they play the same as they did at the original? Do they follow the same routing direction with respect to each other as compared to the original Lido?

Do they follow the same routing direction with respect to each other as compared to the original Lido?The Lido SV is oriented exactly the same as the original, with most holes running north and south. A great thing about that is that the sun is never in your eyes during the round, no matter what time of day. The wind roses were between Nekoosa/ Rome and Lido Beach are nearly identical. The magnitude of the wind is slightly higher by 2-3 MPH in Wisconsin, surprisingly. For both, there are prevailing winds out of the W and S, but they gets N and E winds too, at about the same proportions. The course itself seems to have been designed with all the possible winds in mind.
Early reports are that the golf course is CRAZY difficult...?
A fantastic video showing the first ever round on The Lido featuring Tom Doak and Peter Flory (plus EAL and Mike Keiser Jr.) I really enjoyed the watch and hearing from Tom and Peter. I hope we'll all have our own experience on this course soon enough, but this piece took my level of appreciation and anticipation of this project to a whole other level. Kudos to all involved! P.S. GCA and its contributors with a shoutout as well.
He does by far the best golf course videos… leaves the others in the dust.
