The new holes at kenwood are definately challenging and require good disc flight to navigate through. Holes 7R-10R are definately duceable with good accurate throws off the box.

11R and 12R are not so nice. First the t-box on 11R is pointing about 45 degrees away from the fairway which makes it tough to get a good "run up" on an already challenging hole.

12R hole marker post in directly behindthe t-box. Need I say more!

All the t-pads are poured on top of grade instead of even with grade. Some exceed 4" of fall on the edges. Be careful with your follow through.

It's apparent that disc golfers were not inovlved in the construction process of the added holes.

I will say however that Cal Benke has designed some challenging shots on the alternates. I will be forced to work on my forehand. Thanks Cal! We appreciate everything you bring to the sport!

new-6 challenges

I've played them daily at least since the baskets and tees have been in. First, I agree with the tee's being in need of adjusting/improving. 11R/12R both need additional width to provide fair platforms for throwing as the initial lanes for both fairways are tight.That being said the challenge is to leave that stretch the same level to par you enter. I've managed to deuce 8, 9, & 12 (all on different rounds of course) but completing the R-hols at anything less than +3 has been tough
