What is your favorite format for tournaments?

My club's B-tier has gone through several different configurations. We have an 18 hole course and the ability to add, at least, 18 other holes. We've done two 18 hole courses, one 30 hole course, etc. We've done two rounds on one day with one the next day, one round each day, etc.

Right now we're discussing keeping the 18-hole course and expanding to a three day event with pros and ams playing the course at different times of the day. Many of the participants camp next to the course so it is nice to have down time to enjoy each other's company.

I'm rambling. Just answer the question.

Make it an enduro.

24 holes, 24 teams of 4. No team members can play on the same card. 8am day one you start the clock. 8am day two you stop the clock.

Whichever team has played the most holes wins.

If I am camping on site, Im good with one rd per day. If I am at a hotel or something. I would rather do the two then one.

One round of 18 per day, but on the two different layouts. Layout A on day one, Layout B on day 2. If you want to seperate the Ams and Pros, have them play the opposite layout.

Three day formats are the best. Unfortunately they're also the most difficult to fit in for players who have to do any sort of traveling to get there

If pros and ams play at separate times it would be really cool to offer up some sort of compensation/prize for caddying.
For example you get one entry in a raffle for every round you caddy.

A post tourney skins game is always fun too, pro/am dubs style.

I'd go two/one if it is a 2 day strictly.

If room for a three day I would do one/two/one

I'm a big fan of the traditional 2 days / 4 rounds of 18, so I feel like I got a full weekend of disc golf in. Unless it's a monster course.

I'm also a big fan of novel formats (match play, etc.). And single rounds per day with tee times. Which contradicts what I said an inch earlier, huh?

I've been told that our course is strenuous, if that helps any.
