I played Pinto yesterday. there are 9 holes - 8 with baskets. I was lucky enough to run into some people who've played it before, otherwise i would have gotten lost after hole #2.

the terrain is mild rolling hills with moderately woody holes and some open holes. the lake comes into play in just one or two holes right now. some good elevation change on some holes and some very tight fairways on others. there's plenty of danger if you leave the fairway and there's a healthy amount of oak everywhere.

here's my shot at a break down of the holes:

hole 1 - 469ft, par 3 - open for the first 250 and a gentle downward slope. some big trees come into play at the bottom of the little valley but there's a decent window to reach the pin. basket is on a slope and you'll most likely be approaching it from the bottom

hole 2 - ???ft, par 3 - a somewhat lined fairway with a pedestrian trail cutting through and a road off to your right. at 250ft, a ravine about 4' deep cuts across the fairway. Just past this ravine, the fairway turns left down an dirt access road and the basket is in the road about 175'. there could be OB on this hole with road coming into play.

hole 3 - 210ft, par 3 - this is one of the toughest 200 ft, par 3 holes i've played. the entire hole plays on a right to left off camber slope with trees all along the fairway. the basket is straight ahead. again, OB could be in play on this hole with road off to the left.

hole 4 - ???, par 3 - this is one of the shorter holes on the course. the basket is straight ahead but there's a big cluster of trees right about 50' down the fairway. there's a big hyzer route and probably an overhand route if you can put it up...way up.

hole 5 - 500ish, par 4 - the hole tees off from the right side of the road. the fairway is the road itself with the lake coming into play on the right with some thick thick brush in between the road and the shore. the fairway plays a slight incline all the way. the basket sits on top of a ridge in a clearing to the left side of the road.

hole 6 - 320ish, par 3 - the teepad is off to the left side of the road and the hole plays slightly up and then down towards the pin. no trees come into play as this is the most wide open hole on the course. no basket is currently installed for this hole. there's a 4" diameter post sticking out of the ground. I could see this hole having an island green with the way the landscaping looked.

hole 7 - 450ish, par 3/4 - i'm not sure on the par for this one. this hole tees off by the white shed/bldg and the teepad itself looked like an old patio. the fairway follows the road (same road as the end of #2 but from the opposite direction) with some steeps lining the left with trees and the lake and thick brush on the right. your drive off the tee will most likely be downhill to hit the road. the basket is located on the left side of the road.

hole 8 - 200ish, par 3 - hole 8 plays across a big ravine. you tee from the road just past #7 basket. the basket is basically at the same elevation as the tee but the ravine is deep about 40ft. there are big trees guarding the basket with a couple different windows for some ace runs.

hole 9 - ???, par 3 - this one is a little tough to describe. the basket sits on a side of a hill that slopes right to left. the fairway plays down hill and to the right into a little valley. from the bottom of the hill/valley, your approach plays uphill to the right through a bunch of spaced trees to the basket. there's an over the top line going to straight to pin if you can get it there.
