TIPS AND TRICKS

• Easter Egg : Some of the larger (?) rocks around the course boundaries have messages on them, such as NENKO, SASAEI, and OFHARA. These are programmer names? You have to get the ball right next to it to make out the text clearly, but often you can tell if a rock has it from about 50 yards out (you can see one from the 16th tee).
