I did feel that this years layout was a bit tougher and slightly better. But it's like a 4.7 rating bumped up to 4.8.
I walked the round with the womensrec card. They were waiting on the card ahead of the half he time and their round time was much shorter than mine was which was after 1pm

Ya, I guess the moral of the story is; that you need a course more geared for the ams for am weekend. Because, this year on the pro course it was slow going for the ams.
And less people on a weekend. Still pushed darkness on the pro weekend

Great weekend. Only issue was too many people were allowed to play. I think having groups tee off every 10 minutes is good in theory but does not quite work. After every 4 or 5 groups, you need to have a 10 -20 minute break with no groups going out. We were all on time to start hole 1, but by the time we finished hole 1 we had 2-3 groups to wait for on hole 2.

Less people, and things would run really smooth.

That said, it was a great weekend. Good times, fun course. Glad I got to play 4-5 again as that was one of my favorite holes last year.

Can we please eliminate 15 for next year? Pretty sure all 12 people I played with agreed it may be the worst hole in all of disc golf. So much land out there for a better hole. I don't mind walking up that hill to get to the next tee.

Thanks Mike for all of the work involved. I know its a huge undertaking and I loved every minute of it. Any complaints I have are minor, and are just my own criticisms. I know I love that course and that event. The one tournament of the year I get to see so many friends I don't see anywhere else.

That's interesting....on Sunday, before our tee-times, we watched the group ahead of them come through on #9....and then waited what seemed like an hour, though no doubt it was less, before the Rec Women showed up at the tee. It was that, and the scores ("143"?), that had us thinking that perhaps some shorter tees would have been appropriate.

It's true.....and yet, you can hardly blame them from wanting to accommodate as many people as wanted to get on that course. I would assume some adjustments will be made for next year.

I can't speak for Sunday because I only walked some of the back 9.

But on Saturday, they were waiting on 9 to throw. And I know Sunday they had a shorter round than Sunday.
