Will everyone be playing the same course each day?

Or will 1/2 the field play Rosie Saturday then WW Sunday, while the other 1/2 plays vice-versa?

I will not be able to make the tournament since all my brothers will be in town, but we DO want to play some DG together.

We will probably play some of the other courses in town, especially if its muddy at all, but I was just wondering...

You will want to figure out where to play besides WW and Rosie on these days.  Cliff Drive will be available if you are wanting to stay in the area, and should be in pretty good shape by then as well.  The pools will be playing these courses all day on the 2nd and the 3rd.

Sorry about your luck, hope this helps.  Always good to see family though!

No worries Jack, I figured that would be the case. It's going to be better to just use some of the other fine courses we are so lucky to have here.

I have had a few players who have volunteered to help with this event.  I am also looking for a few people who are not competing in the event that would like to be part of the staff to help make this event a success.

I have a question for anyone who has ran a tournament or set one up. Why do holes have to be added and the course changed around. Waterworks is a well know course and a place people want to visit to play. Then they get here and it is a whole different layout.  I understand for pros and open players, but this is for an amateur championship.

It sounds like the WW layout will barely be changed at all.  4 and 5 will be combined, and 17 will play to 12's basket on the hill, that's it.  Every other hole will be at a standard setting, with the exception of the two temp holes, which are just a bonus in addition to the standard layout. 

On another note, I want to say thanks to Scott for both putting some thought into unique hole configurations for this event, and also for having Rosedale set up well in advance for the opportunity to practice.  Thanks!

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.
