Re: Course Modification Vote Clarification

Also (not to over state my case), but I would also argue that hole 10 has (2) forehand friendly pin positions (the berm, and right position) and only (1) backhand friendly one (straight), boner tree or none.

I know it's one hole I step up to regularly and think "ok, I need to start working on my (non-existent) forehand"

I would disagree with that assessment Mike.  I think a course should have a balance overall, but there can be definite forehand friendly and definite backhand friendly holes. (ahem...could use a few more backhand friendlies @ Willamette)

Plus, I'm not convinced that a well placed cut wouldn't benefit both.  An open fairway is an open fairway. 

whatever throwing style, all would benefit by not having to walk under a 500lb.+, half dead log every time they walk down the fairway...

I know the odds are against it, but widows have been made by such.

a couple stepwise cuts will be safer anyway.

yeah, thought about that when I was cutting recent fallen tree on 10- that's what it did....I figured I'd take a chunk off above where I wanted final cut, let it do any moving, then make final cut on angle that looks good.

I kinda suspect if the #10 tree is cut off half way, the weight of the root ball will try and stand it back up close to vertical...Do it ..See what happens
