I think the flow should go from current #4 to current #10, play all the holes back there, then to current #5 - current #9, then to #16. I think this results in the best flow/least number of crossing fairways, and makes the course closer to having distinct sections. I also like playing the holes on the hill (current #5-current #9) in the back nine, rather than the front nine because they are the best holes on the course and add a nice change of pace at that point.

Try this flow the next time you're out there and see what you think. Other ideas for flow changes? Keep it the same?

That is how I have been playing it. Heck, I like those holes on the hill so much that I played them twice in my last round out there Sunday. 1-4, 6-15, 6-9, 16, road to basket 2 and teepad 2 to 18.
I like your proposition Matt, but the tee box on current 7 says 7... that is too bad because I like to have those holes on the back nine as well. its ok to have the mislabel as long as there are maps that tell everyone the proper order.

As it stands I agree with Matt to put the hill holes in the back nine for flow reasons. Good thoughts!
I think Tom said it was no big deal for him to take out the 7 inlay and re-do it. Sounds like that hole won't be 7 no matter what the re-configuration turns out to be.
This is a good idea, especially when there are tournaments. There is nothing set in stone, except the number 7 that is set in the stone, but you are right, Tom said it would take all of ten minutes to replace it. Anything to help this course, I'm sure, would be appreciated. Thanks Matt for the input,
Hey guys,

Here's my $.02

-Matts proposed layout slightly better than existing because the walkout from 15 to 5 interferes less with other holes than the walkout from 15 to 16.

-We need measurements comparing the proposed walkouts with the existing walkouts.

-Is there a possiblility of putting a path in the bushes from basket 9 behind teepad 5 to hole 10?

-The inlaid 7 on the teepad. Nothing happens in 10 minutes. I'm a project manager for a construction company. You can't unload your tools in ten minutes.

-Lets give Tom our support and our manhours. If we determine decisively that the proposed layout is better, Tom will not stand in our way. Tom deserves to have his bitchen inlay work in the teepad even if we have to remove the 7 and he has to inlay the new number once the course flow is finalized. We need to volunteer some man hours to make this happen when the time comes.

-If we do decide to change the flow, we need pickup trucks and people to move approximately 11 baskets all the way across the course and this needs to be coordinated with key holders.

I have all the confidence in the world that the course will eventually have the very best flow possible.
After playing it a few times, I think the best layout is 1 - 4, then go to current 10 - 15, go to current 6 - 9, play 5 as 15, then 16 - 18. There is a walk then between the new 10 and 11, and 7 will become 12, but there are no walkouts through current 5 and you get to close with the hill, which are some of the more challenging of the course. Ultimately the decision should be Tom's, or whoever is going to do the work.
