Quite a few THPers have played this very unique course. I played it again today for the third time. For fun, post your photos.

Great pics! Isn’t this about as unique of a track as you have ever played?
The pictures are amazing and they don't begin to do it justice. Just amazingly fun and unique. We were talking about as we were all playing it for the first time and probably 15 or 16 of the holes would be shoe-in signature holes for 95% of courses out there.

I have mixed feelings about Wolf Creek. Some awesome and creative holes. Some over-done holes. And the last two times I played there (both this year) it was a bit crispy and a little rough. Makes it hard to swallow the $155 price tag.

From this September. The last photo is of the first par 3, a 180ish shot straight up hill! This is one where I think they went too far. Nearly impossible to hold that green.

Man this place looks so fun. I feel like I've been there after playing it on video games so much.

Damn man, is there anywhere you haven’t been? I’m swapping out Waldo for OITW when I’m searching golf course pics from now on. Should give you a PM tomorrow on the Stoutly Stout thing. Just to get you through the winter. I currently have a 4x4 vehicle so you can expect ZERO snow this year. As long as it’s running we’ll probably golf year round in all honesty.

I bought it a day after the mini-blizzard that dropped 20” on us in early 2018. Hasn’t fracking snowed since, lol.

I don't take photos, but have played it quite a lot. Really love the dramatic elevation changes. And the 17th is an outstanding golf hole. As I've said many times, just wish I owned the place and had a lot of money - because I'd fix the greens (which have too much slope IMHO) and build a better practice area, together with a few minor improvements here and there and it would be a spectacular golf venue. There are a couple of other good tracks nearby and Mesquite is worth a visit if you're into golf.

I agree that it isn’t a course I would want to play every day, which is why I call it unique. Today, I hit a great drive on number 5. I was left with a wedge into the green. How often does one have a wedge for a second shot on a par 5. I hit the wedge, it spun off the green and then ran down the hill, leaving me another 60 yard wedge into the green. I parred the hole, but that is gimmicky. It is just such an unusual layout that I like to play it once per year.

That’s about right. That par 5 is one of the ones I like a lot.

There are a lot of greens where you can spin it off the green. Lots of slope.

Ha, ask @KY Golfer about his 80 yard 2nd putt.

Hole number 5.

Perhaps someday I can be lucky enough to take my own pictures of this course.

Wow. Incredible photos. Must be amazing to play there.
One of the reasons I want to start playing golf is to visit different courses if ever anyone is kind enough to invite me or the opportunity falls my way.

could they just ask Tom Weiskopf to come in and fix the mickey mouse greens..... but I'm being pedantic -- I love the place, but it just needs some TLC to make it truly special. These comments are coming from someone who washes his car every second day, so pay me no heed.
