    Played the R/Go before for the first time. The Tourny green speed is so much better than the Killer Champ speed on these greens.

    I shot a 65 (happy with that) in the R/Go, with 31 putts total (not happy with that..lol).  No Bogeys and No 3 putt holes and I'm really happy with that.

    I Still like the course. I haven't been in too much trouble, but from Tee to green It's quite easy. The Greens, I would say are the toughest on Wgt... Dare I say it, even tougher than Oak. This is where you can make or break a great round.  I just have to learn where is the best place to land on the greens to make it that little bit easier,  not sure there is one though...lol. Time will tell.

    I ended up having no backspin on my approach shots, I've noticed that there is an insane amount of run (backspin) on some of the greens, this proved to work better than having the backspin on. Topspin might be a better option.

    Overall, it's a very nice course. Thanks Wgt

    Now we have Whistler, maybe Wgt can think of releasing Cabo to the Social Clubs... Just a Thought.

    Cheers

    No way, its small yardage holes are only protected by the tough greens, but get used to where to land and i think it will produce sub 52.  I managed 55 after 2nd ready go, and missed 2 easy birdie chances on #10 and #11 for a 53.  The top players will score just as low (or lower) than cabo!

    im not really sure on this one really.. a great driving course had fun trying to drive some greens in 1 although i havnt done so yet maybe from the easier tees it should be possible. the greens are crazy it feels like oakmonts older nasty brother to me like the 12th green wow wat a stress full green lol. i will play it again but not as much as i thought i would. wgt have done well the graphics arnt to bad. 

    anyone that shoots in the 50s on this course give yourself a pat on the back very difficult putting course it would be good in alt shot!!! just an idea

    I agree with a few here No:12 PIN needs changing, had a 3 ft putt cross ways ,liped it and end up 22 feet away,hit next putt to inside a foot and went 17feet back down the hill...

    Its a PUTT Putt green

    I disagree entirely. The 12th green is a putt, putt, putt green ;)

    Too bad nobody wants to play on it.   Been trying to get a multiplayer stroke game going for hours and everyone keeps declining Whistler.
