I gotta agree with Roger on this one! I hope 18 is in the C placement for the Open this weekend, the (by far) best pin position for that hole.............

I don't mind B "in the jungle". C is much better but I still love B.

I'd like to see 13 in the new plcement for the Open. And 17 not in D....

I gotta agree with STARFIRE. Hole 18 B at JB is a great hole in my book. There are several ways to attack the hole, the putt is always entertaining, and it just looks good tucked in the jungle. It might not be a great A-Tier placement, but it does have its place in everyone's memory. Some of my favorite putts (made) have been on this hole.
Hoppy 2013!

Just done with the 2010 St. Louis Open and the course is fresh in my mind. Ok, here we go. I love the bridges but this thread is not on improving the course, it's improving the golf holes. We lost tree and it's not the same course it was. Hole 13 and 14 in my opion needs help. I'm thinking trees. Unlike using trees to deter a throw in a direction we'd be looking for trees to throw around. So if we plant trees, it will take a while before we see the change. But right now the holes are weak. Maybe put 13 in the woods like I've seen before.

I think we should plant trees on hole 11 to deter the righty hzyer into 8's fairway. The hole was never designed to do this and it's just wrong. Also if we're going to use the 400 plus placement on 2 that is far left, then I think bushes to keep the disc from going in the road.

Other than that I'm good with everything else. :mrgreen:

Mando on 11 is the only way to fix the hyzer route over 8s fairway. Even if tree(s) are planted, they will take a while to grow large enough to deter that route.

Mandos are weak, the only reason Ray doesn't like that shot is because he doesn't have the long bomb to make it. I think it makes the hole much better than being forced to throw a long turn over. If not for teh big opn hyzer over 8, D placement on the hole would be near impossible to birdie (for right handed people)

I agree, Mandos are artificial and detract from the game. They are weak.
But to solve Ray's issue with hole 11s route over 8s fairway, that is the only way to solve it quickly.

I am really happy there are no Mandos at JB. OR artificial out of bounds.
Now I realize that roads and walking paths are not natural obstacles, but they are
naturally part of the park and aren't unreasonable.
