I met the King at Chickasaw today, driving around the park in a red pick-up, he works there. Also designed it, maintains it and has been playing since before my time. He also designed Citronelle (and Desert Fox @ Paul B Johnson), which if you read yesterday's blog, I really liked. So good job. He wanted me to stress that it's (Chickasaw) is no longer an old, short course and that people should really come check it out. And they should.

Halloween Howler- really not planning to play, after playing Chickasabouge today, it's so short and tight it wouldn't be to my game even if I wasn't hurting. Plus It's set me back at least 2 days. I will probably be there tomorrow night to give out some stickers, see the temp. course and possibly change my mind. If they need help running things, let me know and I could do that and take it as a day off to rest instead, much needed day off.

Mobile (Palmetto), AL- Chickasabouge:Short, tunnel fairways that are relatively open, but thin. Nice woods of pines, pine needle carpeted fairways, some vines and no nasty rough, clean playing. The average hole is 225' ish and straight with a tree or two to negotiate somewhere in the middle of the fairway. This makes it tough for me, especially right now unable to hit my line perfectly due to joint pain. That's why I won't be playing. If it was longer, even still tight, I would. Well marked, cement tees, maps and 1$ to play. 2 open holes halfway through the round, one at 370', no woods holes anywhere near that long.

Mobile- Chickasaw:Packed into a fairly small park, that as I approached it I couldn't imagine it fit 18 holes, but then part of the park can't be seen from there. Obstacles include a tennis court, a building, fence, road, and a creek (deep and dark enough to lose a disc, I never came close but it's there on more than a couple holes). WAY longer than listed due to constant changes, at least 10 holes maybe a dozen are over 300', with many in the 350' range. Well marked, dual dirt tees. Can't get lost. Open park area bordered by roads and houses, with a forked creek (more like a stagnant ditch right now) splitting down the middle, small hills going up from it on each side, covered with trees and a few lines of actual woods to shoot through and around. One basket in a tree stump right by the creek, a good drive leaves you putting high towards water. Many real golf shots, drivers needed. One par-4 through 2 gaps in tree lines.

Later: Maybe Hobbit if it doesn't rain.

Ben, sounds like you need a monarch for those straight shots

Boy, that tournament sounds like a *perfect* one for me, though, Ben: I can throw 225' straight all day long!

I sometimes refer to Chickasabouge as ChickasaDoublebouge depending on my play.
