Well, another weekend has passed and another course goes under our belts. As you know by now, we were in the city that never sleeps this week. We played 3 rounds of 24 holes at the beautiful Sunset Park which consisted of 2 or 3 long holes that required 2 shots to get to the basket (unless you got off a really good drive). The baskets we played on seemed to vary a lot from hole to hole, which made the tournament seem pretty unique.
As for the other holes, there were only 2 holes which required
a righty anhyzer shot. The course did bring a pretty good
bit of O.B. into play that did wreak havoc on a lot of players.
Going back now to the other 20 holes, they ranged anywhere
from 280 to 370 feet and were fairly wide open, which played well
for a lot of righty hyzers and straight shots. I personally
enjoyed playing Sunset Park because
Not affecting the play of the course a whole lot, but needing to be mentioned, were the gopher mounds everywhere which, if hit with plastic, were like little sand traps.
Oh yeah, one of the holes, #21, had 5 palm trees guarding the basket and had huge leaves that were shaped and acted like hands.
