Why isn't the rule of pin placement used on the champion courses used for the executive courses. i.e., three placements and changed daily not a new hole every day. No wonder the greens on executive courses are in such bad shape.

The other reason is because if you tried to put the pins in relatively flat areas only you'd soon have no grass in those areas due to the amount of play and people wearing a path off of the green to their carts. :-)
Also due to the constant shuffling of feet from the cart to the ball to the hole; that's getting as bad as ball marks not being repaired.

For the past few months on both the Championships and Executives the pis on some holes have been crazy. just slowing up the pace of play.

And I thought it was just me. Played Southern Star last week, drove long and straight and couldn’t putt for.....well you know.

And yet again....got Southern Star this morning. Will see what challenges there are today.

I STILL LOVE THIS PLACE!

Just always hit your approach shot...below the hole.


Problem solved.
