I used to live on the 11th hole on this course. It’s a long par 4 that goes straight up a hill. If they mow the grass short and your approach shot comes up even 1 yard short of the green, you might be hitting a 7 or 8 iron back up the hill for your third.
They can make this course as hard as they want. It’s kind of ridiculous for the everyday golfer like me. But I bet these guys enjoy the challenge. When I was last a member here 8 years ago, the head pro was a guy named Tom Jones that moved from Karsten to The Blessings.
I still don’t like the current format...stroke play followed by match play. But I get that match play creates more drama for TV. They should at least reseed the top 8 teams based upon overall season performance.
Same setup currently happening. The final rankings of the current 1-10 teams.
3. Wake Forest
So drawing that one seed might very well land you the toughest matchup. Granted the way these guys are playing this course and the fact that they have a 20 stroke lead after two days gives some comfort.
