After playing Timber Lane on Saturday I have to say that some tight fairways can be fun. Hole 8 out there is a short hole (158'?) with a very tight fairway. I managed to nearly ace it and took a 6 the second time through (couldn't miss a tree). Hole 7 is also pretty tight and great fun. There is a path through the trees to the basket but it's a hard path to hit perfectly and this makes the hole challenging. On most of the holes at Timber Line we saw score separation; Billy and I had different scores on 6 of the nine holes each time through and we have the same rating.
Both of these tight fairway holes were short. I believe this makes them more fun for players rather than a 400' tight fairway. A short tight fairway can separate players just as effectively as a longer one.
