Title: KC Corporate Challenge
Post by: thankyoupeter on March 05, 2013, 09:01:13 PM
I know its still a ways off, but does anyone know what the layout will be for the KC Corporate Challenge at Swope, and when the baskets will be moved to this set-up?

The course is usually set really short for CC.

I will give you what I expect to be set up.

1. Middle
2. Short
3. Middle
4. Short
5. Left
6. Short
7. Right
8. Middle
9. Short
10. Short
11. Middle
12. Right
13. Short
14. Long Right
15. Short
16. Corner
17. Right
18. Short

Women will play from all short tees.  Men will play from the long tees on 5, 11, 14, and 18.

The course will probably be set up by Swope Spring Renewal (April 10th I believe).

I will not have the complete CC set up until the week before. Most holes will be set in the CC placements, but not at all. Some holes have the red practice pin in the CC placment and the flags are longer for a longer option. I am sure CC players can handle that since PDGA players only expect the course set the week before NT or A tier events.

tsk tsk tsk.....
 Courses are required to be set up for the first round configuration a minimum of 48 hours prior to the start of the event for
National Tour Elite Series Events and 24 hours prior to the start of the event for SuperTours. In the case of temporary holes
and/or courses where baskets are unavailable, the temporary configuration must be clearly marked...

I know how to catch a Jack. Put out info. about a PDGA tournament rule. I know "we" like to have them set a week before, so I was guessing in the dark.

More in retrospect to how I was getting beat up on that course records thread started....this one I knew.  I may forget scores, but rules and procedures I generally have a pretty good idea of where they are....

I know I'm probably being wildly optimistic here....but are you planning on setting the course for the CC by this weekend?

Course is set for CC. I met many player's warming up for it today.
I'll be out there next Sunday promoting the club.

Seems to be a tougher setting than previous CCs? No?


Not complaining, just pointing that out.

14 and 16 are the only really tough holes in that layout, and I'm assuming those pins were chosen for safety.  Remember, the CC is going to have some new players, and discs will be flying every direction.

I'm wonderin what tee boxes they will have us play? Anybody know?

Short would be my guess when you are trying to get 400 people through Swope in 2 days.

With the exception of #16 on the corner, this is the same setup as last year.  As in previous years there will be mando lefts on #1 and #10.

Post by: KCVinnie on April 22, 2013, 12:23:58 PM
We played a mando on #15 last year.  Is that in play this year?

I know 14 and 18 were short pads last year and I think 5 and 11 were as well.
Title: Re: KC Corporate Challenge
Post by: eeastwood on April 22, 2013, 01:34:30 PM
And #14 was from the short pad, but to the pin straight ahead, not to the right.  Since we played from the short pad no need for the Mando, but if we play the long pad, then it might need to be reconsidered.

Post by: dclabe on April 22, 2013, 04:53:31 PM
Correction...after Eric's post I realized we didn't play #14 from the long pad last year...I just verified with Timko that the  men's long pads are #5, #11, and #18...

#14 Long Right is a slight dogleg right to the pin by #15's OB rocks...

Vince, you sure you didn't cross dress and play on Saturday??? The men played the same long pads last year....

Also, we haven't played a mando on #15 for a few years....

Must of been thinking of my company's tryout last year or maybe that is how I scored so well!  Hope to see you out there Sunday Dan.
