I had to look that one up to see how long it was from the shorter tees. Dang, it says 933 yards from Ladies tees, I dont think a lot of ladies gonna be reaching that green in 5!

How many would you all need from the 982 yellow tees? :laugh: (Assuming you manage to avoid hitting it into the water along the whole left side :whistle: )

I don't think the APCD will allow a par 6. :unsure:

I checked APCD and options are 3, 4 and 5 only.

Another thing is, the APCD will not let us stretch out the yardages for each of the holes, without us having to jump through all kinds of hoops to cheat the maximum allowable yardage suggested by the APCD. And even then, I doubt anyone could even be able to create a 7 or 8 hundred yard
hole without it messing up the scorecard accuracy. Unless of course they choose the option to allow "non-regulation" holes, which we know has a bug in it that makes some of the cups invisible. :sad:
