Milo McIver is wide open, poorly maintained, hard to follow, has locals constantly playing alternate course layouts (with crossing fairways, throwing down on other groups, etc.), and kinda boring if it weren't for the nice setting. Only interesting thing there is the longer distances (long drives, long approaches, and long putts galore). But then again, Oregon is full of nice settings, and I would judge Whistler's Bend to be the best in that category. Only problem with Whistler's Bend is that it is not very challenging...I scored 7 birdies my first round, and I'm usually playing just under par on a typical pro level course.
I've played just about every course in Oregon now, except Dexter...that's next on my list.

Sounds similar to a course in Northern Wisconsin in terms of difficulty, and of course Feldberg shows up and sets the record, lol. Sounds like the pro tees are significantly harder, which should be the case on all courses, especially ones like Kincaid that were made for a pro event. Pretty nuts how they can set up a course for one event, I've always loved watching the videos of courses getting prepared for big events like worlds. I know there are some out there for the courses in Monterrey and Santa Cruz, they're really adding to the courses and cleaning up a ton, removing a lot of the thick brush and poison ivy. Sounds like the typical woodsy course while in the woods, testing you with almost every shot.
While it might compare to some northern wisco courses, I'm sure the wilderness has everything in Wisconsin beat by a mile. Pretty sweet that you can play a round in some of the most beautiful scenary, and the only time I've seen a bear or a porcupine is probably at the county zoo or something, lol. It's pretty sad that people from the local area trash their own course, no matter how awesome the area looks there are always going to be those douchebags who leave all their crap on the course. I even get annoyed with litterbugs at my home course, and it's nothing special in terms of scenary.
Kincaid sounds like the place to be. Thanks for going out of your way to write up the review, I appreciate it. How long have you been living in Alaska?
