This was by far the best golf experience I have ever participated(sp) in since I have started the game. The course was set on private property with 80-100 ft pines covering the course. Beautiful setting and I wish I had this in my back yard. I have been to worlds 4 times and this blew it away. The best part if you were <39 you did not get to play. The course only produced 10 players under par all weekend. That is unheard until now. This was one of the hardest courses I have ever played. 2 holes stick out in my mind the holes Jail and The Tunnel. 25 strokes in 3 days on just 2 holes. You think that is bad, what I know is that they were both <270 feet. Another hole that sticks out in my mind is Death Row 250 feet and I got 14 strokes in 3 days on that hole. This is just a 3 hole example. Next year the US Masters Championship is in Louisville. It would be nice to have golfers other than the four that represented from the state of MO next year. This by far is the most fun I have had on a private golf course. Yes I am one of the old men in STL but I still say, how can a club have 500 members and only 2 represents from STL. One of the STL players is not even a club member! 1 is from Columbia and the other is from the KC area! Anyway here are the 4 MO boys scores.
