Street, MD- Scarboro Hills: Other than being extremely rough on the edges, and on some holes, it's a great course. Medium length, technical. Hilly , grassy and mostly in woods with some into and out of woods holes, and some pure woods. Has insane ivy, easy to lose a disc, some holes on the back 9 tight and blind with overgrowth. Well designed will be great when it gets some more work done. It has rubber tees, several are severely angled but most are nice. Has tee signs, with lengths and basket position markers which is crucial, yet still walk every hole. If it wasn't well designed and challenging I wouldn't recommend it because of the conditions, but I do.

Baltimore, MD- Druid Hill:In a large park right in town, busy road along some holes, not really in play. From longs it's very long, all on a grassy hill with tons of trees, no thick woods and no rough. Well designed, having a long accurate drive is crucial, not much punishment for bad shots. Has multiple tees (multiple cement even), basket placements (up to 5) and baskets in the ground per hole. That can make it confusing, but positions are marked on the tee signs. It's a must play.

Ellicott City, MD- Patapsco Valley State Park:Do not use the given address to find it, will take you to the wrong entrance 10 miles away, follow directions in guide instead. This is an extremely well-kept grassy course flowing in and out of real woods. It is very well designed, from longs it has tons of par-4's and tough par-3's, almost no gimme holes. Scenic and tough, some baskets perched on edge of steep hill down towards a river though hard to actually roll down to it. One of the best courses on the east coast for sure, one of my new favorites. Ran into deer several times, even walked right up to one. It really needs cement/rubber and signs (it has colored wood, no length's and hard to tell where basket is off tee many times) to complete it. Worthy of being a destination by itself.

Pikesville, MD- Silver Creek:There is no creek on this 'course'. 7 baskets in a park with freshly mowed grass and some sparse trees, enough to make the shots but not enough to make it technical. Really hard to figure out, some tees have no marking or just a brick, laid flat and covered in grass clippings. Designed to test the basic shots, has some length. Would be good for safari holes.

Glad you liked the courses. If it is not too late I would recommend you play Rockburn and Seneca too.

Hey Ben, what's your course tally up to now?
I'm surprised that you're not listing the numbers as you go.
What's your projected date to reach 1K?
How's your body/brain holding up?
Doing a tour like this is a fantastic opportunity, but it ain't no picnic, is it?
