No but it seems to have escaped the message board censor. Haha. When I was monitor of this board I had some funny words on the censor. I had "alot" censored into "a lot." I had shinola censored into shinola but if I could do it again I'd make it into shizzle. For a brief time I had plastic censored into polymer. People were always talking about their polymer. Jeff changed it back.

Shizzleway, folks. It was a shizzleway.

Played it 4 times so far. Got a 7, 6, 5, and 5. Yesterday Ryan Clair got a 4 and Danny White got a 4 would have been 3 but for a small tree tap.

I think it's awesome. It's the 5th iteration of 17.

1. from near the creek up the hill to a pin near 12 tee. 600 feet. Too much uphill gruntage.
2. Upon urging from Greg and Tim, moved tee pad up and behind the creek to where it is now to reduce the uphill gruntage. 700 feet. Conflicted too much with 12.
3. short 200 foot hole we are most familiar with. Too much mud and mire. 200 feet Hyzer Swamp.
4. using the old tee pad from #2 iteration to hole out in #3 iteration. 750 feet. This really blew chunks on many levels.
5. Using old tee pad from #2 iteration to awesome new pin placement. 625 feet. PURE AWESOMNESS!!!!!!!!

very nice work on the new 17 Morgan! It plays nicely from that spot and we all stay dry and happy :). Had a perfect tee shot today just past the 300 marker with a straight look at the basket and somehow managed a 6. I'll have my revenge next time!

Looking forward to the current reincarnation of Hole 17.
Sounds like the right mix of torture.
I plan to be up for Sun dubs, should be nearly snow free by then.

Pictures?

I'm thinking of joining Greg on Sunday for dubs but we're all curious as to the direction of the fairway once you reach the 300 rock.

Yesterday was able to get the old 17 pin out. Now to drag it to the new location and see if I can dig a hole. Currently using a temporary pin waiting for the ground to thaw.

Should we bring any tools Sunday to help get the pin relocated? Shovels, pickaxe, dynamite?

The ground is still frozen. Just bring your arm, skilz, and luck.

Today the firewood lady came and took away most of the logs. Now the fairway is starting to actually look groomed. It's getting there!

Tomorrow during doubles people can suggest to me where I should put the permanent pin.
