We played the IB course at the last IL event @ Larrimac. And it was fun.
The course is very similar to last year’s event:
A shorty downhill. Not a difficult one, but not a gimmie. Thinking a two is needed to compete.
The first par 4 of the day. The frickin snow around the green is DEEEEEEP! If conditions stay the same I won’t even be putting with a non-ribboned disc. Best to be in the middle off your drive. Road looks like it should be OB, but it’s not. The highway is OB. Nothing else.
The second par 4 of the day. A short par 4, but if you got an eagle 2, you’d be ecstatic. A 3 feels good, and a 4 is hang your head and wish you didn’t waste your mullies on the hole before
The Larrimac Signature Hole. Off the top tee box to the evergreens. The Plaid Jacket Bytown Big-time hole 1. It’s a ways down there (I can’t get there in the winter, but fly past in the summer)
A slight uphill chuck to a nicely wood-guarded green. The roads would make a fun OB, but NO OB FOR YOU!
Another classic Larrimac green; under the pine. I love this hole. And one of these days I’m going to make a putt on it
Another slight uphill shot with an insanely guarded green. The huge spruce will not be fun to putt from, so don’t go in there
Maybe the biggest walk to a tee and I apologize. If I was thinking I would have dropped the tee closer to 8’s green. But I didn’t. And the same throw as last year. Justin threw a flick to 30′ on Saturday. Awesome.
Not the same hole as we love, but a much easier walk to the tee in the metre of snow out there. The green is still in it’s nasty place (this is the green of Plaid 10 too!)
This is for the short players out there. Very low ceiling and no option to hyzer around. Skip-it-baby!
Back to the parking lot. Wonderful green-bump with several hit-u-down branches on the way. Remember, NO OB FOR YOU!
Winning best-disc-doubles on 17 holes 1-12,1-5 was a -8
Justin took a whack of pics. Maybe he’ll share.
