    Is this the 12th?

    Whichever hole it is, it's ridiculous... I'm directly below the hole, not somewhere where I'm asking for trouble

    Dare I say it, even tougher than Oak.

    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!

    No doubt the very low scores will be shot.  Just saying the greens are the toughest on Wgt, for me anyway.  I quite like em meself...cause they are a huge challenge.

    I think the best course to learn and get use to difficult rolls on the green is Oak.... whistler has taken over that thought...lol

    Tee to Green is easy, That's if you stay on the Fairway, in the short rough it's not that bad either.

    Posted a solid 26 on the front of whistler with and eagle on all of the par 5's. Hoping i have the front nine record for now but wondering if anyone has topped that yet.

     

    Managed a -11 (26) too but it was in Ready go for 18 holes. (2nd day)

    Better check these out too for mothers day gifts:

    Just played the round there and I have to say, the graphics looked great and it was an interesting course.

    Definitely I agree that the greens are very tough. Most of my birdies came from 2 to 4 feet. Three-putted the 5th from 14 feet from below the hole when the putt rolled up the hill but then back down the hill.

    The birdie on the last hole made my round. It was, in a way, a disappointing round up until that point because I missed endless birdie opportunities but finally on the last hole, I made a 10 foot, downhill, severely left-to-right breaking putt and it was a great way to end the round.

    Like the course. Elevation changes made the course very challenging. Greens a bit over the top but fine by me.  So definite members knowledge to be had. Like to play it more on the cheap.

    ...and here's where I WD'd..  my 4th (yup, FOURTH) missed birdie inside 7 feet, 2 of them inside 4 feet..  I think I have learned my lesson about this course.. piece of cake tee-to-green...  when you're hitting more putts than shots, something is wrong...

    Love the layout and graphics, damn the scores............it is golf, fer chrissakes.

    Perhaps the next 1 here should be the Highland Links in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia...another 1 where you gotta change golf-cart batteries 1/2 way through, or rent the mule to drag you up and down.

    Well done WGT!
