What is your ideal layout?

Postby bortimus » Thu Jul 26, 2007 9:30 pm

Suppose you have the opportunity to create your own course. What is your ideal course par and what is the layout? For me, par 64 with 10-6-2 par 3,4,5 is a great
combination. It's nice to dream....

Yeah that sounds like a damn good challenging course Bortimus! To be REALLY damn good it would also have to include fifty to three hundred feet elevation change. About three holes should be fairly open and long. Two or three holes should be HEAVILY wooded. Water hazards should come into play on three to five holes. One hole should have a diabolical OB or Mando. One hole should be "outstanding" in some way and it would be the signature hole.
Since I'm just dreaming anyway it should also be on Microbrewery property where beer drinking on the course is actually encouraged (like Boonville in CA)!

I don't believe in mandos, so I wouldn't have any.

I would have one ace-run hole, maybe 240ish and essentially open. I'd like one over water, again around 240. And a couple of open downhills with strategically placed trees.

The 10-6-2 pattern sounds good to me.

We have a 24 holer that sounds like that around here -- 12-8-4. I think 9 of the holes play around a lake.


But I like the 10-6-2 layout also.

I'd probably put in obstacles on a couple holes that would preclude a roller like a log or ditch.

I think all the 3's should have ace possibilities, and the 4's and 5's, tough to birdie. The one course here (PDX) with 4's and 5's is Milo, it is used for the Beaver State Fling, a PDGA NT event. I love that style of mixed pars; most of the courses here are all 3's and to mix it up some of us shoot all putter rounds and adjust the pars up on the longer holes. It makes for a very tactical round, a nice break from birdie or die rounds.
my 2 cents.

Lots of rocks means no dirt, no dirt means no mud. I hate muddy discs. BTW, I went to Whistlers yesterday. Had it all to myself.

The aforementioned 10-6-2 plan has nice balance.

I would want a course with a good variety of holes. Some tightly wooded, some more open (but not wide open) and lots of elevation changes and big mature trees. I like some water to come into play on a few holes just to give you something to think about.

Something with tight well defined grassy fairways. Variety of hyzers, anhyzers, long tricky holes, water holes, a roller hole, big elevation hole. Nice signs and distance markers. Water falls, tiki bars.... a disc washer! A man can dream right!

I love elevation change... throwing downhill is my favorite.
