Good that you have no desire to change courses that others are responsible for.

Don't go home / stick around. Differing opinions are good to consider...at least a wee bit.

Public parks, as with other "public property" are (usually) owned by the municipality they are within. A better question is "who is the 'steward' of said park"? In most towns, the selectman /...

IMO your planet Open is not nearly "strong enough" (to give justice to "par" and keep it sacred, like it is in bg) as even in "big tournaments" - unless some sort of 'invitational' - the average...

"So why not set it at that level"

Cashing at par level or par at cashing level?
The latter scenario is 'flawed' because if the PDGA where to ever change their payout percentages, par would have...

Respect for the sport (by the players AND the unknowing public) is earned by tough standards, not by coddling players. If we (the PDGA) lose 'a player or 3' because we're "too tough on...
