    You'd likely have to get special permission from someone at the course, on a slow day, mid-week when no one else is dumb enough to be out there. Private is your best bet as well.



    I wonder if you know anyone like that at a course like that...

    I found the Falls Road pic. They do have one "mando" hole like City mentioned. For the 7th hole, they make you hit a shot across a line they draw on the fairway.

    This looks awesome. It's sold out this year (December 14th), but I would definitely be up for it next year. 6-man scramble.

    It is fun and you use both inside and outside holes You will have to hit over, around trees most holes are - - 5s in length It is fun and the winner will make a coule of 4s

    I like the idea of a route from PB #9 green to PB#10 green. I'm pretty sure multiple cars, and multiple buildings can be damaged depending on the route you decide to take.

    I think "comp sci jargon" is how great grandpas are going to deride things to their nursing home mates in another 35 years.

    Pretty cool review from the Fried Egg of a Seth Raynor track outside Chicago.



    Sidenote : it can't be overstated what the drone has done for golf course photography. Well, maybe it can. They're all basically the same shot. But they are informative, and when someone gets the light right, they're pretty also.



    you know what feature doesn't get talked about much but also drives me nuts (in a good way) is when a fairway just falls off abruptly to rough, like the right side of 5 at Little Bennett. underrated difficulty adder while keeping a ball playable.

    When my wife was considering jobs in Charleston I started looking at private options down there and there are two amazing Reynor designs that are just stunning to look at. Yeamans Hall has some old school greens, a lot of them with squared corners. Stuff that you just know would never get approved to be built on a new course in 2018.

    He also says how SOME people don't like the routing because it doesn't use the lake, but that he knew the best layout was inland because of the ravine.



    Also something that wouldn't happen today.

    So it looks like the snow stays south of us but we're going into one of those 7 day periods of wind chills at or below freezing the whole time. Cant wait to get in next week and test out the Mevo.

    Yeamans Hall reminds me of Elkridge in Balto. I think it is not cheap to join either. Square greens, Redans and very square tee boxes.

    There are a couple of courses near here that I feel do that. At Potomac Shores, you never see the Potomac's shore. Lansdowne has plenty of holes that front the river, but the view is entirely blocked out by trees. I assume in both cases it's some sort of environmental restriction by the state, not a design choice.

    Even if you cut down all the trees, PoSho really only has a couple holes that are even near the water - the rest are all inland.

    Unfortunately we have the same issue at SPCC. The water views need to be improved. That should happen with the new redesign. Getting holes closer to the water is a problem with restrictions but cutting trees down will happen to clear site lines.

    Queenstown doesn't really use the Bay at all. It's sort of there on a couple holes, but I'm always disappointed when i'm there because I want more Bay.

    I've only played the Queenstown Harbor River Course once. Will not bang again.
  • Kent01puttKent01putt BaltimoreMembers Posts: 1,790 ✭✭
    The one hole you can see the river on it get like a wind tunnel between the trees. Queenstown is almost always open when it snows here. I go there to play in the winter and it is cold wind.

    I've logged about 50 rounds total at both courses at Lansdowne. You're right, there's not much of a view of the river unless you're peaking through the trees. But a lot of times, the river can come to you. Just the mere thought of rain raises the Potomac river to flood the courses with entire holes under a couple feet of water.

    I cant think of any really great courses on the water in the area where you can actually see a lot of the water.



    The Country Club at Haines Point comes closest.



    Swan Point maybe the most underrated but while that three or four hole stretch is amazing - thats it. Bonus points for hitting Captain Johns Crab Shack after golf though.
