My wife, Sheila, and I, helped tweak the final tee and pin positions on the front nine to make them a little tougher than the original design, but Kelsey mostly had those laid out before we came into the project. (You may see that Hole 3, I think, is in memory of my father, Paul M. Calhoun, Jr.)
Kelsey, Ben (my son), and I walked through and plotted out the back nine, pretty much as they are and, yes, we were being sadistic but also wanted to let people playing it get into the beauty and physicality of that part of the park.
Kelsey did a remarkable job of getting that course put in, in an area of Ohio where no on has any money for anything! (Why I left.)
I have switched back to using my Champ leopard for straight and anhizer up shots. alway use my Gator for most upshots anyways. I liked the buzzz alot at first but I have found it is hard to control how far it goes. Glides too much! I've can't tell you how many times I was @ 50-60 foot from the basket. used the Buzzz, just a little flick, it catches a whiff of air and floats 30-40-50 foot past. The Gator is like throwing a round brick! Very controlable!
my only other ace is hole 5 at green lakes. wide open @ 200 feet. hit it with my flx buzzz. I've hit metal on several other holes/courses but none have stuck yet. We just started a link at our club web site for aces! cnydga.org theres some good shots described in there.
I've been having the same distance issues (not much more than 250-280ft bkhnd) and started a forum thread on getting more snap. Lot of good input there but so far haven't had the chance to go practice in a field.
