The head groundskeeper of this course obviously graduated summa com laude from the Marquis de Sade's "How to make a golfer's life miserable" Advanced 101  class !!!

Haha I haven't played it yet but there were a bunch of no grid hell pins on the December Long Tour (7-8 courses in)........its a sinking feeling moving the aiming marker a cup or two off the hole on 3-6 foot putts.....it seems so far away...so I aim for the edge and watch it slide away low and roll another 6 feet away....rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.  But playing no grid certainly helps reading greens with the grid on.

Funny it does not help me at all. I barely shave a shot or two from scores, playing with a grid. I have played without a grid for so long I just don't know how to figure out all these lines... :)

I wanted this course to play a little tougher than my previous few courses but I don't believe that any of the pins here are unfair. If they are, then maybe some corruption took place during publishing.
I play no grid, no scout cam, no aiming reticle and I think I posted level par here on my PC which is probably 2 or 3 over my usual average round on TGC these days. This is about the difficulty I was aiming for with this course. All my courses since Masefield Municipal have been play-tested with no grid, no scout cam during their design.
My last 7 courses (newest first):
Binyon Peak
McGonagall Golf Club
Lovelace Bay
Swinburne Forest GC
Brackenridge Nine by Acrilix
Drayton Lakes
Chudleigh Golf Club

Hey man, I like your course and that's why I picked it for this week's four round NO GRID tournament.

Are the pins unfair ? Sure they are but most pins are unfair... :) on all courses !!! That's the reason I like to play without a grid. Video golf would be boring always posting  -12  scores.

Also enjoyed the course!  I really like playing no-grid, but there are times, especially with shadows on the green, that it's nearly impossible to read break.  That said, I guess I enjoy the pain and agony of missing a "gimme."
