Learn to throw very far, and putting well is also good.
Is this the line for the beer, or the line for the coupons for the beer?

Putting well doesn't help at Ewing sometimes...

In all seriousness Kelly, Ewing is a course where you'll have to take some lumps, play smart. Don't try to do too much. Do what you're capable of doing, and do it well. The baskets are like Folletts baskets, with a little modification. They are soft touch, so sometimes a hard putt won't stick. The modification has helped with this, but I wouldn't let that get in your head too much. Ewing is a beautiful park, you'll enjoy it. Just play smart. Like you would at any championship course in a tourney situation.

See ya Sunday!

you're right about always staying within your game. Ewing is pretty straightforward. It's just kinda long, with some tricky holes, with some OB. The configuration it's in right now isn't the hardest, though. At least IMO.

If the tee and the basket are on the same side of the gravel road, the road and across is OB. If the tee and basket are one opposite sides of the road then it is safe.
