I could be wrong.   But i think they are going to set up on an actual hole and do it as each group comes through.   Don't know if it would be a driving hole or par 3. 

Again i could be completely wrong, but that was a discussion at one point.  Don't know the details they settled on. 

I doubt there is any truth to the rumor the call your shot distance challenge is also while wearing  oven mitts and an apron.  @Kenny B any chance Martha would be schooling us on that?  Or maybe it will be Jason @sirchunksalot with all that smoker experience...

How have I missed all of the pre-trip shenanigans!?  Sorry for being MIA.

I think it's getting to the point at work where everyone is tired of hearing me talk about the trip, I can't stop. I really don't care and I'm looking forward to sending photos of the courses to my buddies. 

Also, is there a sand trap in the middle of the 15th green at the Woods course? That's the stuff nightmares are made of.

Jason, there was a shared green at Mid-South in Pinehurst last summer.  I managed to blade a chip onto the wrong one 😅

Will this be a call your yardage in the air?   I am getting pretty good at knowing the distance off of my hosels.

Our course has a shared green on the par 4 #1 and the par 3 #4.  In the photo below #1 is in the distance and you can only see the front 1/4 of the green.  In the foreground is the right half of the #4 green (other half is left of the bunker).  A strip of green connects the two greens.  A huge grass mound separates the left half of this #4 green and the rest of the #1 green

There is no bunker in the middle of the green, but sometimes the grounds crew puts a Blue (back) flags on both greens; the flags get pretty close to each other and with the wind coming straight toward you from this vantage point, misses will end up on the other green.  

FYI, I have been in that bunker in the distance which is short and right of the #1 green.  A bladed sand shot put me in the bunker here on #4.  🥴

I've never played a course with shared greens and even though I know they exist, it never popped into my mind this was one. I still can't shake the paranoia that I'm going to end up there on both holes. 

I was the same until a couple of years ago when Monte taught me bunker play.  The sand doesn't bother me much anymore, except when it's so inconsistent between bunkers and sometimes within the same bunker (wind blows sand out in certain places).  Actually, on a couple of our greens with certain pin placements, I would rather chance going for the pin and possibly end up in the bunker than play safe to the fat of the green because there is a high probability of 3-putting and chance of 4-putting (or putting off the green).  Having confidence in sand shots is huge!

@sirchunksalot the pool is open and ready for your Wednesday visit before we head to Kingsmill. Pool temp is up to 74 degrees. IMG_0400.jpeg.9f485c5698b37080eee7cd69e2d7f8f8.jpeg

I do have the floating island green and hitting mat for pool side ready as well. I’m just trying to find a small flag and pole to finish it off.

I like a looser fit and uncertain of wash shrink I went a size up. They're coming from Illinois apparently, so that's pretty near by!

Going to be following this one virtually from Disney.  Had a lot moving around and finally settled on a four day get away with my wife and no kids for that weekend.  At least I will get in one round of golf in FL while we are away and of course drinks around the world in EPCOT.

Quality of sand in the bunker is one of the most overlooked aspects. Having played in various parts of the country some sand is much easier to hit out of than others and your setup can be a lot different if it's wet and packed vs soft and fluffy - or even worse, soft on top but packed under the top 1-2 inches...
