So who got the #1 tag? Or did somebody sneak out early with it?

Got hole 1 at Stocksdale tonight. Not sure on the distance, but threw a DD verdict. First throw, first hole. Bowen, Perry and my brother as witnesses. Course is looking good, can't wait until it's fully complete!!
on Original hole 17 - the Mando needs to be moved back 1 tree. This allows a safe shot but still a challenge with risk/reward. the second shot doesnt interfere with 9's fairway or 18's teepad.
Nothing wrong on the #8 movement Scott, to accomplish that feeling on #1 though you may want to think about the short hole #1, and the parking to long #1 though.
Joe - this is not a ball buster, just my thoughts...
I think the intention for the MAC is to give Ams the experience of playing in a larger tournament without paying a $100 entry fee. Tee times for instance are never utilized for a C or B tier. Sometimes A, but not B or C.
With larger tournies, such as GBO, Shunga Nunga, etc., tightening up the fairways and extending them is part of the tournament experience. Admittedly, I tend to shoot below my rating on longer holes, mandos, OB rope, etc. However, I enjoy them more when they are utilized in a tournament. If I want to play the normal course, I go to league or have a casual but serious round with my friends. For tournaments, I personally want the difficulty kicked up a notch.
I agree with some of the comments here. Where as I don't personally have the tournament experience, I can get as much experience playing the same course over and over but not gain 'that' much knowledge of 'how to play'. Just in preparation for the MAC, I've started playing Rosedale and Water Works on an alternating schedule every week. Yet, I'm quickly learning it doesn't really matter with the regular course set ups, a tournament NEEDS to change the regular layouts. The whole point of playing disc golf, is to have fun, get better, and compete against your own play, as well as others.
I, for one, am excited to play new courses and set ups. I believe that's where the true reward is in playing tournaments.
Just my thoughts...
It's the only course in town that has the baskets moved a couple of times a week, thank you BOB WARD!, and it's the main reason I regularly drive past three other courses on my way in to play Rosey. Please allow Bob to continue to move the baskets this week. Clean up hole 1's tourney placement (it hasn't been used all year), the cat box on 16 also, and then move the baskets during the week prior. You may earn a little good will from the majority of the people who play this course, the one's not playing in the MAC.
This is where common sense should come in to play. OB. That is not how the hole was inteded to be played. Don't use stretched technicality to get yourself out of a bad throw. It's about the integrity of the game.
