Here's the deal with Ted's:
It has some really tough, kinda lucky, par 4 wooded holes. But no more lucky than the Vichy course.
1. Sweet wooded shots, 450' with a slight right turn. Wooded, but no insanely tight.
2. 260' straight shot with woods on the right. Anhyzer line works well here.
3. 760'. Downhill for 400, then across a earth damn with water on the right. Pin tucked in woods
4. Kinda boring 300' dogleg left.
5. Another boring 300' straight shot
6. 325' shot over trees and over a lake. I layed up and went over both rounds because of a headwind.
7. Tricky anhyzer shot. Like 300 straight shot over a creek to an open field, then another 150' up a hill to a basket that sits on the hill with trees on either side.
8. Very nice 300' uphill tunnel shot. Starts in the open, finishes in the woods. Roc off the tee and a putter (what I chose), get lucky with the driver up the gut, or huge hyzer over everything.
9. Downhill 400' with trees on each side. Fairway narrows as you get down to the pin. OB right behind basket.
10. 260' straight shot to a treeline with basket on other side. If you're not going over, it's a poke an hope.
11. 320' right turning shot, starting in the woods and ending in the open. Basket sits at top of hill sloping to the right.
12. 230' dogleg right in super tight woods. Lay up 130', then pitch up 100. I tried a tight anhyzer both rounds, but never found the gap.
13. 200' downhill right turn in tight woods.
14. The Cherub. 500ish downhill dogleg left wooded hole. 350 downhill to the turn, then you need some luck if you plan to get up to the basket. Most likely, you take two shots from the turn and putt for 4.
15. The Boneyard. Zig-zag 350' uphill hole. 230 to the turn left, 60' to a turn right, then a right turning shot to the basket. Fairway is 15' wide the whole way, with a forest of saplings everywhere else.
16. Uphill 250' hyzer shot in the woods.
17. Straight 240' shot down a tight ally with basket on left.
18. Downhill 350' shot with woods behind the basket, and lake behind the woods. Howling headwind on this one.
That's the short course from the short tees. Due to the temps, we didn't play the long course. But this course appearently gets insane from the longer tees.
For sure, you don't have to have big D to shoot well here. I felt the round played rather quickly for 4 people (approx 2 hours). You do need to force yourself to leave the driver in your bag on some of these holes unless you want to gamble for a big 2. I shot a 67 and 69, but think I could make the 60-61 number if I had been driving worth a damn. We do local ratings, and I had a 938 and 920 for my 1st and 2nd, respectively. Someone shot a 55 the 2nd round, which rated at 1033. 54 has never been broken here during a tournament.
