Golf is a game of inches. A couple of made putts can change the outcome. That is, unless you're Castlewood and win District by 97 strokes.

Missed one. Many apologies. Post above has been edited/corrected. 

No apololgies necessary.  I heard it was tough Monday.  Lot of wind (which I was playing The Virginian and it was plenty windy there) and tough pin placements all around at Tazewell.  I have never played there, but when I saw the scores I knew it had to be tough.

Tazewell’s difficulty lies not in its distances (many of the Par 4s could be driven to pitch range by amateurs if well placed), but in the elevation changes, hazards, and winds.  It’s easy to hit a decent tee shot there and have the wind/elevation combo carry it OB.

Tazewell Country Club has a slope of 124 and a rating of 68.9. It's not overly difficult but considering the vast majority of hackers grossly overestimate how far they hit the golf ball and never factor slope or wind into the equation, it's easy to see how it can play more difficult for the average high schooler. 

To put that slope and rating into perspective, here are a few others around the region for comparison. 

  • Tazewell 124/68.9
  • Fincastle 131/69
  • Glenrochie 123/69.9
  • Blue Ridge 129/69.7
  • Wytheville 119/67.3
  • Draper 127/70.8
  • Olde Mill 138/72
  • Cedar Hill 115/68.2
  • Clear Creek 128/69.7
  • The Virginian 125/68.8
  • The Olde Farm 132/70.2 (I'm dying to play this place!!!)

The VHSL state championships for Class 1 and Class 2 are being held at Olde Mill, which is likely the toughest golf course in Region C and D outside of The River Course at VT. Nothing Tazewell, Blue Ridge, Fincastle or any other golf course in our region offers will compare to the combination of severe elevation change, water everywhere, wind and forest of Olde Mill. It's just a tough golf course! I witnessed the state tournament there last October and was amazed some of those kids were able to finish. If not for a "double par" maximum on each hole, several wouldn't have. And to think, Eastern Montgomery's coach wanted Region C (held at Olde Mill last week) to play everything through the cup. Several of those kids would still be playing if they had. His team had a 78 and 5 scores over 114 with "double par" in effect.
