The Ropes event is how you can win the Illinois Spot for the USDGC performance flight.

Just play, it's a fun event. The difference lies in strategy having a greater importance than is normally the case.

The high scores were carded on a short (~160'?) island hole. OB off the tee required a re-tee. The was a strategic out throwing lay-up, lay-up, putt but most folks went for it with varying results. First round I doinked my deuce putt and dropped in for three. Second round I had four consecutive throws OB before squeaking one in and hitting a long putt to 'save' my septupal bogey.

Yeah, there was an island hole similar to hole 17 at USDGC with a small island green and a bail out area for those that don't want to run the green off the tee. A lot of people took high numbers for it trying to go for the green instead of bailing out and laying up for their 3.

Super fun layout though. You'd never catch me at Mokena unless it's in this layout.
