How many times have you showed up to a course for the first time, and thought about how differently you would play holes/shots if you had seen them before (e.g. I had no idea there was so much room there!?!??!)?
I get irrationally annoyed at this phenomena, and it sometimes ruins the entire playing experience. If you’re a golf course management perfectionist like me, you go on google earth and measure out different shots, carries, tee shot start lines, etc. I started putting together course previews together for an upcoming golf trip, and realized there are likely some other sickos doing the same thing. If you happen to fall into the aforementioned category of individuals, upload your course previews here for all the refugees to use as they see fit.
Here’s an example PowerPoint slide (lol) I put together of Lochenheath Golf Club’s 12th hole in preparation for a big golf trip. Feel free to comment, leave feedback, or improve upon my quick analysis.
Never again will we fall victim to phantom O.B., or the blind tee shots because it’s our first time at a venue. Cheers!
