Lavalette, WV- Lucky and Crazy 8:One is brand new, not really finished but being worked in. Has some unique holes, like a basket in a tree, a shot across train tracks to a basket suspended from a tree. The other is not being worked on currently because of the new course, so it's pretty rough but not that bad except for a few holes. Only 1-2, and 18 have ivy, the rest is up in the woods on huge hills, with turtles and toads everywhere. Most holes are probably technically a par-3, but really tough and i'd be happy with a 4 on many of the holes. Mandos, hills, and tight lines make it one of the toughest courses on the trip so far. Ryan lost 2 discs there today, should be easy to get them back since it's private. I only wish I was good enough to score at this course, but I just can't be that smooth it showed me how much I need to work on my game. Thanks for the disc Johnny Sias, I was gonna put it on the wall but I need that type of disc in my bag..
Bainbridge, OH- Pike Lake State Park:This is a surprisingly great course, all in deep woods, you can barely see the sun while playing. Has about half cement, half really slick muddy tees (it had just rained), and great tee signs. Not very long, maybe 2-3 holes over 400', so most holes you could get a 2 on, but they're technical and a mix of all shots, I had to use sidearm about 4 times off the tee, parked 3 of them. You need good shoes with traction to play here especially if it's wet, the ground is clay/dirt and very steep, one hole I slipped 5' down several times trying to putt from my lie. It's a lot of fun and a great course to practice and hold tournaments at. There is one hole where a mostly dry wide rocky creek bed is practically the only fairway, which is actually really cool.
