This week we are featuring Head Island by staypuft39 which was an entry into the Dream Team design competition. This course is based on an idea Pufty has had for a while to create a course with Easter Island-esque feel. Mad man. The course features zero bunkers and is only 6800 yards. Piece of cake right? We'll see. You will be battling plenty of elevation changes and some interesting shots to be played out there. Good luck!
After 6 holes I was thinking I should have just taken the week off sitting at +2, but I managed to claw it back to -7. Still gonna need a great second round to have a chance of making the cut I think. Usually I target -20 as a benchmark. Will see how tomorrow goes.

Wow. This week, it was down then up for me.
Round 1 was horrible. Constantly underestimated the wind and elevation (playing by feel didn't help here), leaving myself a bunch of rather challenging putts. Started with 13 pars and a lonely birdie to sit at -1 through 14 holes. Then something clicked fortunately, and I finished R1 with -5, before adding -14, -11, -15 in the remaining three rounds.
Hopefully, -19 makes the cut, so that I get rid of that demo mark from last week.
Don’t know what Pufty is using to cut his holes, but the amount of times my ball rolled over the edge this week was insane. This course is such a challenge even though it’s all right out in front of you. Really good test for the tours.
TCRBrad: Hey if anyone wants to BETA test a course for me - go check out Portree Isle - Old BETA1 and enjoy some Links golf

Doyley: We're aware WGR points didn't get handed out last week - not intentional and we're fairly confident we can retro fix that - will let you know if/when that is done.

Doyley: should return to the normal schedule you set up for the next one. Apologies for the slight error.

Doyley: Just an FYI - for those that chose the recurring donation option - we had a slight issue with the recurring portion of it that is now fixed. It's likely if you had a previous recurring donation skipped (the first one always worked) it was sent in today

Doyley: We'll obviously be holding off on any next season talk until after the info is out on 22nd - we can make a plan of attack after we find out if it's a release day or a release date (in the future)

theclv24: I figured it might be interesting to a few folks here, and I Ihaven't gotten huge turnout on the raffles so a $10 gives you a decent chance to win.
