I hadn't considered adding OB to any of those on the back, but you're right that #15 uphill short would be a good candidate for an island or something.

As for temporary holes, we tossed around the idea but weren't able to get anything really put together before the event. The pond with the island (across the Road from #9) would be a great area, as well as the land near #3 and #4. There's plenty of good land near enough to the course, to add a handful of extra holes (likely not a whole extra 9, not for a one-day event).

I agree with you Matt in the sense that I have a long run-up so I benefit from the gravel in that way.

And thanks Mike, and you're right about a few holes having similar shots. This was my first time setting up a course for a tournament, and I learned a lot. I wanted to avoid simply putting every hole in it's longest pin for the tournament, but I ended up having a couple of things I wish I'd done differently. Holes 10 and 11, like you said, were pretty similar shots, Although not exactly the same (#10 has more trees). In retrospect, it would have been better to use the longer pin on #10; It's a bit longer and turns a little to the right, making the basket harder to get to. Rollers work well, and it's not an easy 3 like the one we used.

With 90 people playing the Frostbreaker this weekend, and I know more of you have been playing these last few weeks, I just wanted everyone's thoughts on how SMP looks nowadays. We added a handful of new pins, put in some more trashcans, and did other course improvements.

It seemed to me like most people like the new stuff, but I wanted to get as much feedback as possible.

I also wanted to note, before anyone says anything. The gravel around the teepads serves a couple of purposes-

-Levels off the Tees, some had significant drop-offs. For safety's sake, now no one can roll their ankle off the pad or anything.
-In the case of rain, it should hopefully keep things dry around the tee. Even if it's wet on the gravel, we won't have mud issues.

I also want to say that I don't love the gravel, but it's an improvement on how things were before and it solves those problems. So it fixed those issues, but it's not perfect. I'd still be interested in hearing what you guys think of if, I just wanted to explain the rationale.

I'll see you all there tomorrow, I've been really excited for this for a while and I'm glad there's been so much interest in this tournament from everyone who signed up.

Oh, and I have Bag Tag #12 :)

I seen em in various stores for $30, just saying.

EDIT: To clarify, I don't mean to be rude. But eBay prices are usually considerably inflated.

He's used 10x Aviars and a Black DX Aviar for jump putting, for years.

If it's anything like #5 at Cliff, there will be pieces of gravel on the pad itself. But it is only a mild annoyance compared to a bunch of mud every time it rains. Anyway, it looks real nice in that video. 8)

Not only that, but the they also used the gravel to make the Teepads level with the ground. Some had pretty big drops on multiple sides.

Gravel isn't as annoying as a broken ankle.

It's been a while since I played SMP and I don't remember the tee pads looking like that, with gravel and all that. When did those go in?

The gravel was put in sometime in the last few months, to help keep things dry around the tee. While it is more dry, the gravel can be mildly annoying.

If it's a bring-your-own-disc deal then I'm definitely interested.

The problem with distances is that some of the maps are missing and some of the newer holes aren't on the maps anyway.

I think Scott has a full course map with all of the distances, I'll see if I can get that and post the distances for the pins being used. We also should have replaced the tee signs by the event.
