    The length is a problem. The issue isn’t difficulty but you have to wait in a bunch of situations that you normally wouldn’t to hit shots while people are on the green. On the back nine... 11- Par 3, 12 - very reachable par 5, 13 - Par 3, 14 - reachable 4, 15 - reachable 4. It kills the pace of play on the course. That is a really fun track when it is empty but I won’t play it anymore during peak times.

    78 with 35 putts. Took the Bryson line on the last. It was plugged so all carry to here.

    Highland is really short, I just like to go out there and drink. Also a really fun gambling course. You hit a few shitty shots and the guy you are playing has birdied the last 3 holes. My low is 60 out there. Typically shoot 64-65. Also some cool views and nice to have an "in-town" course.

    Oh yeah, I remember playing this course before. Shot 71 when I played it and iirc hit my drive 315 on the last. Funny enough I remember only getting like 2 yds of roll out on that one! Nbd.

    Meh, he has the right to his beliefs and feelings just like anyone else. Hopefully he realized that it may bring him into a spotlight so to speak. If he's ready for that conversation then good for him. If not then yeah probably should think that through a little more.

    Then your post was nonresponsive, because the tweet it quoted just said his expression was tone deaf. It didn’t say anything about him not having a right to his beliefs or feelings.

    Woooo boy! I tore that ass up today and shot 39-36. Went into Sunday of our Member-Guest having to finish our third match from Saturday being down 1 with two to play. Missed a 12 footer for birdie on the 8th but fired a birdie on the last to split the match, 5-5. Beat the shit out of our 4th match, 8-2. Went into the last match down 1 point to the team that beat us 7-3 in the first match. Won our last match 8.5-1.5 (I shot a gross 36 with a stroke) and got us in the shootout.

    We decided to let my partner hit the first shot of alternate shot in the shootout. He topped it about 25-30 ft in front of him, I missed a 3 footer to move us to the next hole, and we got eliminated in a chip-off. But we had a blast. And our 16.5 points in two matches got us third in the calcutta today, which paid $6000 (we had a quarter of that).

Definitely contends with the best shape course I’ve ever played. Tipped it out at 7500 yards which probably played 7000 at sea level. Greens rolled a 13.5. 36 on the front and fell apart on the back with a 41. Would recommend it to anyone that has the opportunity to play there.

    68-69 usually. I’m a +2 and MBC isn’t very long. Tips on the west course shooting 73-74 would be a good score.

    Something along the lines of was doing a controlled burn at their farm in Gadsden and a can that was supposed to be diesel actually had regular gas in it and it blew up on him. Was airlifted to UAB. Going to make it but has some pretty bad burns on face and torso

    I played 9 yesterday and shot the ugliest 45 in golf history. Hit driver well and was firing darts with my 60 degree. Everything else was an absolute cluster fuck. Hit a buried rock and put gouges in my new 8 iron.

    It’s one of the oldest courses in the state. Was the original Birmingham Country Club. They couldn’t lengthen it to keep up with tech advances due to the urban setting. They also just completed a 3 million dollar renovation and re did all the greens and added a few bunkers.
