Course #1100 – Redeemer Park in Charleston, West Virginia

I played course #1100 today at Redeemer Park in Charleston, West Virginia. The course was fantastic, with some really cool and creative holes. The teepads were also pretty cool, and I even got to meet the course designer, Steve. Hard to believe that just over a month ago, I hit #1000 – it seems so lon ago!
