Loriella--Spotsylvania Co. VA...

...is now the longest course in the state, according to the state TD. The changes we've recently made have put the course over 8200 ft. from the back tees to the long pin placements. He(the state TD) says that it may be the toughest course he's played and estimates that par will be between 64 and 66. We had a doubles tourney there last wknd, and the best score was 58. One of the players shooting that score was Brian Skinner. The same guy that has the highest rated round ever.

4 and 5 have been combined, but the short tee is in the woods closer to the old number 6. After old no. 15(now 14), new 15 is in the woods directly behind the previous hole. It's a tight hyzer, around 360 ft. in the long. New 16 is parallel to the old 16, but in the woods and longer. New 17 runs from the cedar tree line near the tennis courts back to the old short pin for 16, the long pin is closer to the old 16 tee....Confused?

me and my friend are going to take advantage of the high forcasted temperatures for this week and saturday and road trip to NOVA. We are going to try to play both the light and dark side of the grange and loriella.

Do you think it can be done?

It CAN be done, if you start early and finish late and maybe skip Tiki at the Grange. Otherwise, I'd recommend playing the Grange and coming down to Loriella for the Challenge. It's a PDGA B tier, ams on 3/3, pros on the fourth :D
Or play Loriella first and save Tiki for after dark. Once you get out to the Grange, play the Darkside first, it'll make the Sunny seem even easier(it's no picnic though). :twisted:

Any snow that's left should be gone today. Tiki always seems to be lit, but be aware that the Grange monthly is this Sat. It usually has around 35 players for two rounds for the monthly, one on the Sunny and one on the Darkside. There is also Fri. night glow golf at the Grange. I think the usual format is a 9 hole combo of the Dark and Sunny and 9 holes of Tiki.

righto
we were told on our local forum that the monthly only plays on one course at a time. do you know what course they start on or how we should structure our play? we want to try to start at loriella at 9ish, play it, play the grange both sides, then tiki if its lit.

We usually start on the Sunnyside, but once we started on the Dark. You'll probably get there before the second round starts, so it should be easy to tell where the monthly is(Dark or Sunny).

I played it for the first time over the weekend (17th) and it ate me alive. Of course, there was massive amounts of Ice everywhere and I could not drive like I normally do, but I was pretty beat after 2 rounds of it. From the short box, I was 7 over and 15 over :(

But it was the only weekend I could get there before the Challenge on the 3rd of March. Hopefully, with all the ice gone I will get closer to par.

I loved the course, nice long open shots mixed with some hella tough woods shots.
