I know a lot of folks have played the venerable course in boise. I played the whole thing for the first time sunday. I wanted to know what everyone shoots there. i know there are numerous layouts and options and two holes changed recently but...

I shot 55 when I was trying to find everything the came around again and shot 50. I was super happy. I actually hit six birds in round two but had an OB on 16 and a bogey on 14. It was the first time this year I putted and drove well at the same time. i even drove my putter well.

So I'm resurrecting Lance's initial post about Ann Morrison to get anyone's thoughts. I had played the course a handful of times in the past. I was in Boise last week for work and managed to get in 30 holes before darkness set in. Now, I know I'm not a great player - average at best - but the course really seemed easy - and kind of blah. Everything was set up in the short pin placement - and I realized how flat that course is. It's actually a lot more wide open that I remember. I think I only had 2 bogeys for the day, ending up somewhere around 2 down. Maybe it's due to the local (Poky) courses having some elevation gain/loss and some narrow room for error, but I'd take two rounds at Ross or 18 at Bengal over Ann Morrison.

Don't get me wrong - I'm not bad mouthing Ann Morrison.

Given how I threw at Ross today, my opinion probably shouldn't count for much. But I wanted to see what others thought.

Eric

I kind of agree. I played most of the course again a few weeks ago. the first 9 were all mid range shots except one. all buzzz all the time I guess. then on the back I threw a driver for a handful of shots. Overall the water doesn't play all that much if you have the distance. It might kill a beginner though. Ross is definitely more technical and varied.
I do like the water factor though I wish it played more.

the longer holes play so open I can just lay into a driver, no problem. Even the trees that are there are still young- over the top and done. oh well.

Boiseans love their course and that's what matters.

I would expect to shoot under par most of the time. maybe 51-52 or so with a good round in the 49 range.

It is almost hard to bogey, because the obstacles are not that dense.

Lance,

Isn't it "all buzzz all the time" no matter how long the hole is?

the buzzz has a 300' limit for me. I can throw it 320, but not with any accuracy.even on blackfoot 306' holes I hesitate a bit, then throw anyway.
