The 28th Annual Kansas City Wide Open is scheduled as a PDGA B-Tier for June 19-20. Registration information will be forthcoming in the next couple of weeks. This Wide Open is being co-produced this year by Disc Golf World (Rick Rothstein) of Kansas City and Dynamic Discs (Jeremy Rusco) of Emporia, KS.
Jeremy and I will be making some decisions soon about formats, but wanted to use this forum to get some feedback from people who play PDGA events. We're pretty locked in that everyone will play 4 18-hole rounds, but we're not certain about how many courses each division should play.
Which of the scenarios to you prefer and why?
1. To play 4 courses. One round on each course.
2. To play 2 courses: Two rounds on each course.
3. To play 3 courses. Two rounds on one course and one round on each of the other two courses.
An argument for playing a course a second time is that it gives the player another shot at the course. This could be making amends after a less-than-stellar first round. Or it could be showing one's mastery by shredding the courses a second time. For travelers new to KC, trying to practice fewer courses takes less time.
An argument for more courses is variety. KC is famous for its courses, so it's a good thing to let people sample more tracks.
Anyway, any and all feedback is appreciated.
Also, if you are interested in volunteering for the Wide Open, let me know.
Thanks for the input.
