You will need to be current to prepay for your tag. Though you should re-up your membership through 2012 if you intend to buy a tag.   Though you bring up a good loophole in which now I will need to close.  Everyone thank Jamie.

Its a 2 dayer, really????

Club championships have always been two days here, and for good reason. It determines the champion of the club, so it should be more rigorous.

Usually, we've played one round at each course. For this event, I think that's good. I'm normally a proponent of getting a second chance at playing a course, but in this tournament everyone should know the courses fairly well. I think the course selection sounds good. I was going to recommend that Young be one of the courses, if anyone asked. Otherwise, I think the choices are ok. Only one of the big 3 is used (Rosey, not WW or Swope), and Wyco is a good call also, as who knows how long that course will still be around.  3 newer courses with 1 of the old standbys, and a good mix of tighter and more open.

There are many reasons that isn't true, not the least of which is that we don't have the money to reshape our land entirely like ball golf designers do. How is a painted line any different than the road or sidewalk which we all intuitively believe is O.B.?

The painted lines are different because a sidewalk or road is pretty much a permanent feature. The sidewalks and roads aren't payed for with $ from the club treasury, and don't require club volunteer time that could perhaps be used doing something more significant to improve the course, such as poison ivy erradication or landscaping.

That being said, I do think the funny little lines painted on the ground do add some interest to somewhat boring holes.

Well said Tom.  Painted lines are like Mando's.  They show poor course design and emphasize how weak a course really is.  I think Wyco and PC are good courses without the lines and don't need them to be interesting.  I also think they make the sport look gimmicky like a putt putt green at a pga event.  And here's Phil Mickelson with a 20 footer for the win.  He only has to miss the blades of the windmill and squeeze between those two rocks.  If he ricochets it off the back wall, I think he can make it.  Hard to take a sport like that seriously.

Well, I don't agree and at least 2 of the 72 holes you will play will have them.  The other 70 holes will have windmills, roller ramps, and at least one peace sign. 

I hope everyone comes out to play.   There may just be a best costume contest too.

Ok, ok, ok, the ob may have made those holes a little more interesting.

BUT, Felt like the split fairway was super weak. Island green was fun even though i've never hit it, just seemed like the split fairway took away an opportunity for someone to be aggresive, since the second one wasn't reachable. Stiff headwinds i think at the time. Just one sandbaggers opinion. It won't matter, when the round starts i'm just gonna go ahead and draw 2 circles over my box on the scorecard for 13. Last 3 rounds on that hole with painted ob, 6 circles = super weak.

Do what you want Dick! And thank you for stepping up! Paint it all up...and I'll do my best to make a decent shot and not whine but if I do, it will be because I didn't execute, not because you made the course challenging. ;D
