Great great course. Greens are quick from what I can recall and the course is fair.
It's not tight so you don't have to have pinpoint accuracy.

The finishing hole that runs in the amphitheatre behind the clubhouse is a beauty.

Enjoy, you lucky dog.

If you want me to show up to Summit like that I'll have to do some shopping. Are there any clown supply stores around. Maybe they make big floppy shoes with spikes?

Played there last summer.....just remember to not wear a hat indoors...and make sure you wear socks that either go to your knee, or are ankle socks.... I found the course nice, but nothing spectacular.....

Nope. Only the Shooters like yourself and Brian get those types of invites.

Guess guys like Gootunga and I have to settle for Turtle Creek.

Awesome experience, seemed like all the tee decks were elevated, rough was thick, and greens were super fast and a hell of alot of break. The hardest holes are the par 3's by far, shortest at 187 or so, the rest were all around 214 or 220. Not a long course but punishing if not in the fairway. Shot a decent round at 83, Felt bad cause i pumbled my client but what the hell. Oh and if you're ever in the area.......try the Halibut, it's delicious.

Hamilton is all about the greens. If you can putt there you can putt anywhere.

Brian, did you play West / South?

I did play west/south, and let me tell you , those greens are incredible to putt on, i putted 100% better b/c all the greens were exatly the same. No need to hammer putts like on a lot of public courses. And they had the pin on the 18th right at the front of the green. Dirty little pin placement as if you went long, that putt was going well by and than 30 yards down the hill. Par'd that hole though! booooya
