NEW Flyboy "Signature" Layout

Postby Fly Boy » Thu Apr 15, 2010 9:28 pm

Hey guys, I just have to jump in. Thanks for the compliments on Flyboy. I've had Avery and Valerie Jenkins, and Nate Doss staying with me at Flyboy the last 3 days. After playing the course, they all recommended a layout of the absolute best 18 holes on the course. This would be the championship "Signature" course layout at 18 holes and par 72. The course could be played as it is now, 27 hole 100 par, or north 18 at par 66, or the new "Signature course" at par 72. The "Signature" layout would have 5 par 3s, 5 par 5s and the rest par 4s. The current par 7 runway hole would be shortened slightly to make it a long par 5, keeping it within the realm of reason! Any comments or suggestions on which holes to keep and which to lose for the Signature layout would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Georgia’s Signature Hole?

Not a bad idea really...a round that doesn't take 6hrs is a good idea.

new 3 old 2 is definitely in 18 should stay but really wouldn't be necessary if you kept 21. Others I really liked were 23, 11, 16, 17, 13, 15, 27, 2, 9.

Really it would come down to flow...if there are any "bad" holes I would call them 26 and 7-8 maybe? But they would probably still rate near best on a lot of places. 26 is just a little swampy, nothing really bad about the hole itself.

This is just from a guy who walked it and never threw a single shot so I may be completely invalid...if so...disregard.

I smell a new thread split! Wow, The 18 best holes at Flyboy.

1,2,3,4,6,7,10,11,13,15,17,18,20,21,23,24,25,26 IMO. I dunno if those fit the par list or not.

I think "No Guts No Glory" at Flyboy is hands down GA's signature hole. Demands a good drive with good distance, long shot over water, to a basket on the bank on the corner of the lake, I mean come on, not to mention it looks awesome as the background of my laptop!!

Wham-o!

New "Signature" Flyboy layout sounds interesting. I have always thought it would be great if we could get two 18-hole courses on that property. We could run so much action out there it would be nuts!

I have it figured out and Treeman is pretty close. Orman, 2-Disc Dan, and I played the new 18 hole "signature" course today, and it played pretty well. The current 27 hole layout remains in place as is, you just decide which particular layout you want to play when you start. Here's the "signature course" numbering: 19,20,21,23,24,25(the small lake hole on the south side),26,27,2,3(no guts no glory over the big lake),4,9,10,13(down to the old tree holding the basket),14,15,17,18(the runway hole). #18 is shortened a bit to make it a long par 5. Other than a little more walking between some of the holes, it flows very well, and allows you to be warmed up by the time you approach the big lake shots. Probably took us a little over 3 hours to play. Try it next time you're out here and let me know what you think.

I will make a new booklet with this layout. Just let me know any info that you want added or deleted. If you do a new map please send it my way.

Kelly I told Val about the new layout and she was very surprised that you had already figured it out.

She said many good things about her time there but definitely thought it was a bit too much.
