Well steeler there was a npL at rosedale. That fizzed out. And that's a pretty centrally located course. Mayb it's the "seasoned" players thT attract the new players to p hill??! As for traveling. That's not the answer to everything. TRaveling doesn't make everything better. New players typically like to keep it simple. I think it's working as is. 3 years ago averaged abt 10 people a week. Now it's been abt 25 a week. I'd say atleast half have been playing less than a year or two. I would encourage u to start a traveling league. It may just work out for you.
What about a wandering new players league to other courses on Thur nights? Unless, most new players are from east side and prefer not the hassle of the commuter traffic.
