The biggest problem is that Manor is far from these courses and one of them (Austin Ridge) is privately owned by a church so a big tournament could interfere with their weekend activities. So really, you just have Roy G and Met unless you consider courses up North. Wilco was a contender before it had tress taken out. Old Settlers is pretty mehhh. It kind of makes sense why the Pros are only playing Manor.
It makes no sense that pros would play Manor only, they've got it backwards, the AM's should be the ones stuck playing Manor 3x. Like I said, needs to be renamed to the Manor Open.

I agree!

Manor is a great course...but only playing there is kinda lame....especially when states has always used multiple courses for Pros and AMs.

you would think so, but Pros (according to Vinnie and what he has taken from others) prefer convenience and not having to drive all over

there's a group on facebook discussing this as we speak. search "Fellow Disc Golfers"

How far is Manor from the Met?

Also, this could be structured so that you wouldn't have to drive anywhere during lunch...just from Saturday to Sunday.

also, Circle C should really be in the mix if it's available. It's a professional level Houck course, clean, and large enough to host galleries on some of the more open holes. The complex is also home to a ton of soccer fields, however, so soccer players may take precedence over the facilities if it were in question.

Thanks!

I just didn't think Manor was as good as many others.......I would prefer Roy G all day (although it does lack some scoring spread).

3 rounds at Manor will have me making a decision (to play or not) that I haven't had to make in the past.
