I don't think that is the only bad hole. The fact is, Manor is not a course for the pros, its more for am's.

Well I looks it will be Manor.....which I have very little experience with.

I would have preferred to play the Met and Roy G.....but sometimes **** happens and you have to play on the least aesthetically pleasing course.

I might not even play!!!! This would be my 14th States in a row.

$160 entry coupled with only 1 course isn't very appealing....

They might have a great tournament staff and good payout, but if you are going to call it a "State Championship" and have it be a NT event, it seems pretty weak to have the best players in the world show up and stick them on one course all weekend, especially when the Am's get to play two. Just my opinion...

Lets not forget that this event used to be a tom bass. Not withstanding the year at Jack Brooks. Yea, its still two courses(and a temp course?) but is two bad better than one good course?

Courses weren't that bad last year......for an NT though they are.

I would just rather skip Manor......unless they really have been doing some legwork on the course.

BTW I thought Brooks was the worst!

Would rather play Tom Bass personally, but thats not the point

Plenty of great courses to choose from in Austin but we are getting Manor 3x in a row.
