Your drop zone on the hole is ... interesting. Why double punish people?

I agree the drop zone needs to be adjusted

I say leave the mando where it is and leave the parking lot in bounds for 17(18).  The biggest problem I found with that hole is if you don't drive down next to the mando and remain up the hill, there is basically no line without going over into 12 or playing the lottery throwing across the parking lot through the trees.  There is essentially no line to throw through.

I really do appreciate everyone's feedback and I will be going back out and do some re-evaluating, which is one of the reason I set it the course up already.  I can't say I will make everyone happy but I do want it to be a challenging, fun course for the event.

I think it's great.  Never seen anything like it in the world.

To be honest, and being a Rec player moving up to MA2 for this tournament, I played both courses today and though its tough I think its 100% fair. You will absolutely have to use every shot in the book, accurately and or distance wise, to come close to having a good score. To me that's the purpose of this event, to reward the best players who have the best shots on a consistent basis. I think the courses will allow those who are playing their best to score and those who are not will be punished fairly. This will me more of a mental test for most, which will mimic what the pro's go through in their rounds when playing in big tournaments. I'm looking forward to the challenge and wish everyone the best of luck come August 2nd.

We are officially over 250 registered players.  Every division is getting close to single digits left for available players.  With 2 weeks to go, do not wait to much longer.

Only 1 last thing, and this will probably tick off half the field....but I think next year, in order to really call it the Midwest Amateur Championship....it should be strictly 1 Champion.  1 Division...no rec, no int, no age restrictions....1 Champion to rule them all.  Actually 2 champions, with the Women's Champ.

I think division competition is important. Honestly if there are none,  I'll not be playing as many in rec and intermediate will not be competitive. We already have club championship.  I do think it would be better to group players by some kind of qualifying criteria.  Use tournament ratings and/or by invite similar to am world's but pool by current year scores/ratings.

RETURN THE MID NATIONALS TOURNEY.......RATINGS BASED EVENT.  This is EXACTLY the format that should be looked at Scott.  I played it, I marshaled it, it was one of the few things that the ratings worked on well in all honesty.  Levels based solely on ratings, not gender or age.  Considered a Major as well....

Instead of:

"If you build it they will come"

I think it is more like:

"If you build it, others will critique it."
