DEFINITELY planning to go home for a break now. After just 9 hole I didn't have it in me to keep going, but I did and played another 9. Just too burnt out. Not stopping until Hos reaches 1,000 if he does. Working out a good route as of now, to play along the way for about a week. Then, 2 weeks off, possibly searching for a job and apartment for winter, then back straight south in mid-october to the SE states to finish as planned. Another day or two left in DFW first.
Fort Worth, TX- Z- BoazLong and tough, with signature holes throughout, and a few short tight woods holes to try to balance out the long arm bias but it's still for the big arms. About 2/3 flat and grassy with Oaks, in and out of thick forest. Some of it goes up and down some pretty big rocky hills. Takes long range accuracy plus upshot skills, trick shots to save off a bad drive. The rough is not often in play, but go left on #16 and good luck finding your drive. One hole shoots off the cliff over a line of trees to the basket in the open hidden on the backside, no option to realistically throw a flat drive, must attempt to go over. Dual cement tees, some signs on ground with length. Severely lacking in navigational help, I walked around looking for #2 for 5 minutes b4 someone else (Frank) showed up and showed me the front 9. I don't see why with tons of people out there daily there can't be a map or some next tee markers, it'd be very hard to figure out without help. It's not the best course in Texas, but it is a lot of fun, scenic and a pretty great place to have in your backyard.
Fort Worth, TX- Greenbriar Community Center:Skip holes #4-5 due to my 3-leafed buddy. Other than that, a decent use of land for a 9 hole course. First 3 holes are open on slight hills, long. 1 guarded basket, 1 tunnel with option to hyzer bomb, 1 straight shot with steep drop off wall to water below. #4 plays along a tree lined creek, then shoots 90 degrees left on the rhbh hyzer fade to a basket across a rocky creek, hardly wet right now. #5 unplayable, cannot walk the fairway without getting ivy. #6 a short shot with water on the right the whole way. #7 with razor fence on left, one tree to throw below or around and a guarded pin. #8 long, no trees, but water far right and a razor wire fence left with a corner to negotiate. #9 from long tee takes about 300' to clear a 50' wide water hazard at the end right up to the basket, road just left and tree on basket side of water on right. Tees are #'ed, map online.
