  1. Thanks for the info. I'm headed up there tomorrow for the weekend. I'm going to take a drive through the Woodlands to check out the new look. I'm really bummed it won't be open yet, but I'll just have to make another trip up to play it later this year.
  2. Yes, that process began last season. Most of the fairway bunkers are now just grassy dips. I think overall they realized the tighter fairways plus tons of trees plus awkward fairway bunkers led to a less enjoyable experience. To say nothing for the general quality of the course when played alongside The Links. I'm really excited to see how it turns out. I just hope they dedicated some time to upgrading the Links bunkers as well, as they have been inconsistent at best, and downright disappointing at times.
  3. The reno was fairly extensive, and Josh told me he is really excited how it was going about a month ago. Here is what they describe as the scope of the work: If you’ve played the Woodlands in the past, some improvements we think you’ll enjoy include: Rebuilt and redesigned bunkers on all 18 holes Rebuilt green surrounds on all 18 holes, adding expanded short grass areas Expansion of no. 2 green Restoration of "The Quarry" on no. 2 Opened views to Green Lake on no. 3 Rebuilt no. 3 tee complex Extensive tree clearing and trimming throughout the course Addition of improved drainage in slow-draining areas Fairway modifications on select holes New green on no. 18, with the original green serving as a fun "19th Hole"
  4. Hey, does anyone have an update on the renovations to the Woodlands course at Lawsonia? Also, did they do any work on the bunkers on the Links course? The bunkers are the only thing that really hold the Links course back at all. Thanks for any local info.
  5. Hey Will, any chance when you update 5he thread with new stuff, you could put an asterisk next to new items (or bold/underline them)? I love to check for new stuff, but sorting through the extensive list, it is not always easy to tell what is updated without a photographic memory (AKA too much good stuff). Just a thought. Thanks for keeping this list updated and full of steals.
  6. Thanks! I promise I checked before posting my request. Must have crossed paths in the ether. Hopefully this helps newer members or newer WTB users, as the scam attempts have definitely picked up.
  7. Thanks for posting this. Any chance it can be pinned to the top of the WTB section?
  8. I work for a non-profit, actually. I don't need to have a vested interest to make a post. That's apparently where you and I differ.
  9. Please stop bumping this thread to the top. It serves no purpose other than as the equivalent of a referral link for your buddy, and you know that. Let it die or lock it and ask a mod to remove it.
  10. I would just like to take a moment to share my appreciation that both the seller and the buyer joined the thread, discussed the issues politely and with details to support their position. That is exceedingly rare and very welcome. Based on the discussion so far, I would gladly do business with either of you. Cheers to you both and I wish you the best in resolving this.
