This is our 10th fairway it slopes across dramatically. It's typical of 10 of our fairways. The ball 6± inches above or below your feet is commonplace. We don't really notice until we play away from home.

Anybody else got a particular characteristic to their home course?

    We have 3 or 4 with what I'd call noticeable side slopes.

    More common for us is fairways where you are hitting off of a straight up or down slope. Nothing too severe for the most part until you get close to the green on a few holes.

    Most of ours are fairly flat with a few exceptions. #5 is almost all uphill. #6 slopes down to the green for the last half of the hole. #8 and #9 have side slopes. #10 has a mild downslope.

    my course is fairly flat. We are more famous for our doglegs. On our back 9 , you can only see 2 pins from the tee box.

    The only flat spot on my course is the driving range. Hanging lies as far as the eye can see.

    the course I play most often, Cedar Creek, in San Antonio has both severe side slopes as well as up and down slopes as well...hard to find a true level fairway on the course with one exception.
