Comments: Overall, Randel-Hinkle is a good course for a city the size of Mountain Grove. There were some nice fairways and some not-so-nice fairways. For my taste, the roughs were too long; unless you do not care about the pace of play you should always be able to easily fine your ball in the rough. The course has no sand but a fair amount of water hazzards. The greens are on the small side but held well and rolled true. They were also a little quicker than many of the courses in the area. It also has its share of very challenging holes, such as side-by-side par 4's, 11 and 13. Both holes have a very narrow opening on your drive. Lee Davis, the superintendent for 20 years, was nice enough to spend some time with me to share the course's history. Lee is doing a great job with this course, particularly for the size of the budget. I was the first to arrive at the course (at 7am) and Lee had already been out manicuring the fairways for 2 hours.
