I played a course where all the pins were tucked...not one was in the middle of the green. And the problem with those pins was no sane golfer could attack any of them. The other issue was, if you hit the ball in the middle of the green you were faced with a long putt. So your good shot? Well, not so good. lol

Not sure if any of you played a course with those kinds of pins, but I did find it a bit annoying. lol

Sometimes I️ feel like whoever sets up the pins at some of the courses I️ play is confusing our game with mini golf. Pins are right on the crest of a hill or tucked in unreasonable places. It’s actually really frustrating

In agreement that gimmicky pin placements can make an otherwise great round incredibly tedious.  Pretty infuriating when you hit a good approach for a sold GIR and proceed to 4 putt because the hole is placed on the slope between two tiers and wont stop closer than 12 feet...  Holes like that are not good for one's blood pressure.

What was the course superintendant's reply when you asked him about the hole locations?

I don’t mind tucked pins, but the clown’s mouth pin on a steep slope makes my head explode.  Played a course a few weeks back where a putt that went six inches past the hole would come back to your feet.  

When I mentioned it in the pro shop, they laughed.  Part of the reason they won’t get my money, again.

They might have been doing a tipped and tucked day or leading up to one. My home course will do that one weekend, the Friday is usually the Tipped and Tucked tournament 4 person teams must have a total combined handicap of 24 and we play in 8-somes its gotten so popular. The pins usually stay in the the tucked positions for weekend for the people who cant make it out for the tournament.

I couldnt play every round that way, and its way more enjoyable when you know what youre getting yourself into ahead of time.

Though sometimes the new guy is told to set up the pins and doesnt play golf, there was a ground crew member this summer who didnt actually play and set up the flags. He put one 8 inches from the back fringe for some reason. People lost it on the poor guy. He thought it looked like a nice spot.

I got paired with a recently retired maintenance guy at one of my local courses one day. I asked him how they rotate pin positions. He said they pick up the color-coded flag from the previous hole and drive to the next one (thereby rotating the front, middle, back pin positions this course uses). But where the cup gets actually cut on a normal day is up to that crew member that morning.

He said there was one guy who didnít play golf and didnít particularly like golfers and his method was to cut the hole precisely one flagstick length from the edge of the green, preferably closest to a bunker. Could always tell when that guy was on pin duty...it was like the weekend at a major with the tucked pins.

Encounter that rather often.  Does it annoy me, no.  It does, however, make birdies more difficult so PAR becomes my target, which I am good with anyway.

Courses divide greens up into 7 day quadrants.  When the superintendent comes in the am, he tells someone to place cups/pins.  Typically, the person placing them is clueless about fair positions, undulations or tight spots.  He just does what he's told.

Happens a lot where I play. I don't really care where the pins are myself.
The big problem is tucked pins and pins on slopes just slow play way down
for everyone. That's fine on a Monday but on a busy weekend it doesn't
make sense.

But, OTOH, people come down here to play the trail and they want the
courses to play tough so that's what we're gonna get most of the time,
even though it leads to long waits for the greens to clear on some holes.

Every single one was either tucked or on a slope this past Saturday. All 27 holes. It was enjoyable though as it was a 5-man scramble with 8-inch cups. Not something I would want to try with normal size cups or if it wasn't a scramble. Maybe a scramble with normal size cups.

Not sure why it need to be a 5-man scramble. Likely just the extra $$$ for the course.

We are also finding that this time of year the grass growth has stopped so old hole plugs are very obvious. The guy cutting the holes will place a new hole within a foot or two of an old hole that hasn't healed yet and won't for a while. Add to that the irregular depths of the holes they cut and one old plug will be raised and another sunken. The problem rests with the superintendents not providing the proper training or supervision and just sending someone out to get it done because they have to.

Back in the 70's and 80's I played a lot of course that had two holes cut on every green. You would play to the one that had the flagstick in it and when you were done playing the hole you put the flagstick in the other hole. This distributed the traffic on each green but obviously the system wasn't used for tournaments.

There's tucked and then there's impossible. A tucked pin should be a challenge, but you should be able to get at it with a good shot. Then there are placements where there shouldn't be a pin at all, where good shots and good putts are punished.

Tucked I can live with, the ones that are on slopes and just unreasonable are the ones that make you mad.  All you can do then is hope to get in some putting practice or it will make you explode

Our course uses a grid of 9 hole locations on each green.  For example:

1   5   7
9   2   4
3   6   8

This is repeated in the same order on the back 9

10  14  16
18  11  13
12  15  17

So each 9 holes has 3 front, 3 middle, 3 back....3 left, 3 middle, 3 right.  And each 9 has its 'corresponding back 9 hole' in the same location.  So if 1 is back left, then 10 is back left.  If 2 is center, then 11 is center.  Each day the grid shifts so that over the course of 9 days, they have used all 9 locations on a green.

My home course has 7 or 8 holes (out of 27) where the hardest pin positions (in terms on putting difficulty) are in middle of the green. You have to get towards the edges to find easier locations to putt on. Two of those greens have 5-6% slope in the middle. So it's a bit of a pick your poison situation on those holes: "easier" approach or "easier" putt.

A few years ago, we hosted a women's local college event and our assistant pro, who did the course setup for the event, got an earful from one of the coaches who complained about too many "easy" pins because they were in the middle. The gist of the complaint was that the women didn't need any favors. It wasn't until after the round that the coach truly understood how difficult the course had been set up.

A course I was a member at used to have a "tough day" tournament where they put all the pins in ridiculous spots.  A score in the low 80s would usually win it.  I wonder if you played the course on the same day it had something similar going on?  Some courses call it "greenskeeper's revenge" lol.

As long as the pins arent on a ridge, and as long as they are far enough from the fringe (I think I see this being the most frequent mistake) I don't really even think about it while I'm playing. Every once in a while there will be an impossible one that gets me mad, but what can ya do. Everyone else has to play it too...

Unless it is in a tournament...I really do not care as long as you can reasonably stop a putt near the hole.
In tournaments, I believe there should be a good mix of pin placements and not every hole be hidden or every hole easy as can be.

Yeah, I don't think that is too funny. This is the first time playing the course where I saw it like that. On one par 3 I put the ball in the middle of the green. Pin was up front on a ridge. I barely hit the ball and it rolled off the green. A relatively easy par, maybe a birdie, became a bogey.

They might have been doing a tipped and tucked day or leading up to one. My home course will do that one weekend, the Friday is usually the Tipped and Tucked tournament 4 person teams must have a total combined handicap of 24 and we play in 8-somes its gotten so popular. The pins usually stay in the the tucked positions for weekend for the people who cant make it out for the tournament.

I couldnt play every round that way, and its way more enjoyable when you know what youre getting yourself into ahead of time.

Though sometimes the new guy is told to set up the pins and doesnt play golf, there was a ground crew member this summer who didnt actually play and set up the flags. He put one 8 inches from the back fringe for some reason. People lost it on the poor guy. He thought it looked like a nice spot.

I never heard of Tipped and Tucked. I was wondering if whoever set up the pins that day was nursing a hangover and was pissed off at the world. lol

Encounter that rather often.  Does it annoy me, no.  It does, however, make birdies more difficult so PAR becomes my target, which I am good with anyway.

Courses divide greens up into 7 day quadrants.  When the superintendent comes in the am, he tells someone to place cups/pins.  Typically, the person placing them is clueless about fair positions, undulations or tight spots.  He just does what he's told.

I don't mind if a few pins are placed this way...but not all 18 of them.

"gotta exercise all area's of the greens" a quote from my superintendent . That being said, Sean it sucks cause some of greens have area's meant to penalizing for poor approach shots.

Amen!
