Uhhh, I'll donate the beer for the final rd if ya'll sett'em short to mids with a rare pesky long.
It is the Club Championships, not the pitch and putt championships.
Things get set shorter for the Ice Bowl, and winter months, there needs to be a strong mix of placements, not all long, not all short, but a mixture to award and challenge all levels.
However, if you are volunteering to run the event in the future, then I believe that maybe you can decide the placements.....IN this instance it was (the placements) the decision of the people most knowledgeable to have a setting for the course that provides a fun and challenge for a variety of members.
Back to the surgery room for me....all short SMH
