I have to go work on Fen of the Frog.  That course kicked my arse!!  I'm impressed with your -8!

Strangely that was one of my better scores.  Death Valley though...yikes.

Superdaleman,

thanks for putting Old Man Oak, in your tour.

I am only mentioning this so as all who have played this are aware. The GC was the old version and 1st course created, which had way too fast greens.

The updated version Old Man Oak CC has slower greens, some changed pin positions and some other minor changes.

Update: 2 min later I have started the tour, and hole in one on hole 1 of Owls Retreat, woohoo.

Nice hole in one!  Old Man Oak is a great course and fun to play...plus I wanted another crack at it to shoot a low score.  Still didn't, but had fun!

well,  i had my difficulties on the first and last course ;/



having only played death valley out of the three beforehand (dv is mine) i wasnt sure what to expect.

owls retreat - i had a hard time adjusting to the greens, seemed slow one minute, then fast, then slow...my putting was everywhere.

death valley - shot my best score there thus far

old man oak - really loved this course, thought the greens were superb.

fen the frog - was doing well until the last hole, i said,....lets do it! and went in the water (cleared the water, but bounced back in), 2nd shot (3rd really) landed in the fairway trap (ya my drop was back on the teebox) 4th shot plugged in the green bunker ;/ 5th shot up on the green, by the hole, almost stopped......then ran down that slope ;/ ...6th shot...20 foot putt up the 2 foot hill with left to right break.....nailed it.

Lol, the first time I played Fen of the Frog I was -7 going to the last, was about two foot behind the pin on the 18th for 2, for what seemed like an eternity until the ball that I thought was about to stop slowly but surely gathered speed and ran down into the diabolical hollow of death, ( this was in the first week I had the game and I hadn't learnt the putting mechanic) anyway 9 putts later, up, and back down, up and back down, up and back down ( you get the picture?  ;D) the course marshall escorted me off the 18th green and potential glory had turned to disaster.  :-[

The 18th hole on Fen can be driven with neutral or favorable wind.  If 1 or greater against you, you need to play it to the fairway.  The green is a beast and I never intended 4 putts, but I wanted the collection area long left of the cup.  The funny part is, people usually 1 putt or 4 putt.  I've seen just as many birdies as double bogeys. 

Also a tip none of you probably knew, but on 15 (strong dogleg right par5), the hole was built to hit an 8-iron off the tee to the fairway.  Then you only have about 195 to the pin across the lake, and you have the hill on the left half of the green that feeds the ball right to the hole from that angle.  A little designer knowledge...
