Great course! I recommend anybody traveling through Jeff City, stop and play Joseph C Miller.
However if you are a competitive Pro player and see $1000 added cash on the flier for this tournament next year. Do not
be fooled (like the rest of us) into thinking this tournament will have a great payout.
19 Open, 12 masters. You'd think 31 pros is $1000/31=$32.25 per player added cash. So $612.75 added to Open, and $387.25 added to masters.
Not the case in Jeff City...They say split it evenly between all fields, so $200 for each division(Open, Masters, Adv, Intermediate, Rec) Never heard of this in my life. Ams get paid out in plastic, so if you add $200 cash, to their payout, with the price of at-cost discs, they pocket somewhere between $75-$100 per division. I'm just guessing on the amount there.
So anyway, when it is all said and done.
The Open payout adds up to $941. 19 entry fees=$855
Masters = $577. 12 entry fees=$540So where did the extra $200 added cash go? hmmm. A total of $123 extra added to both Open and Masters combined. BullS$^t!
Point being-Do not put $1000 added cash on your flier, and pull this. 75% of the pros that came were from KC or St. Louis, and we were all coming for that added cash.
I will say the course was in excellent condition and was very challenging and fun. BUT finishing at 6:30, and then holding a raffle for 2 hours, while some of us traveling with Ams (waiting on their plastic), have to wait until 8:30 for them to give out merch. I won't be back, except to play the course again.
Oh, Also, don't say Lunch on the flier, and then have food for sale. When I see Lunch, I think Lunch provided. That is like putting Lunch on everyday of my calendar, so I know I should eat lunch everyday. That is a given.http://discgolfmonkey.com/upload/flyers/2013_jefferson_city_open_%281%29_1381246529.pdf
