I am sure there will not be any changes to the courses except some basic upkeep.  I was just curious what people thought and wanted to talk about it.

I think they should change the teepad design.  Wide at the back and narrow at the front seems kind of strange.  Just my opinion.

OK Jack:  Not sure what your stance is on pad design after reading the link but in my opinion, narrow at the front seems to present a possibility of slipping off the pad and twisting an ankle or whatever.  I guess I'm old school and just love the rectangular design. 

My second beef with the Smithville pads is the circular ones.  They seem to be about 10' in diameter which for me seems a little small.  I do love the huge circular pads at Blue Valley. 

Once again, these are my own opinions and do not represent anybody else however I will point out that you and I do agree on HopSlam. :-)

Aside from my concerns, I am glad Smithville is in the ground and it's not like I will never go back.

Not to rehash this too much but the idea of flaring at the back of the tee should be done by widening the back, not making the front more narrow. If you like rectangular tees then you should have not problem with that design. The other benefit is that it allows the designer to restrict the potential release points while still allowing for multiple approach angles.

Does either DD Cash or KC Cash work for tournament registration?

KC Cash or DD Cash does not work towards tournament registration.

We started receiving some registrations for the Inaugural Smithville Open.  The event is a month from today and is going to be a great time utilizing two great courses.

yes, the teepads are backwards...and if you knew the reasoning behind their shape... you 2 would scratch your head in disbelief!!!

Which way is backward? Narrow front, or narrow rear?
