Structuring a new team tournament

I'm interested in possibly hosting a team tournament at a private course in western NC (Sugaree) modeled after John Biscoe's Virginia Team Invitational.
10 players per team tied to a club or home course but with one difference, ratings protected divisions. So for example, each player from the WNCDCG would play 8 holes against the corresponding UFO player in the first match.
Divisions would be something like this;
I-950-970 2 players
II-925-949 2 players
III-900-924 2 players
IV-under 899 2 players
V-women over 750 1 player
V-women under 750 1 player
The format would be head to head matchplay for 8 holes. I'm not sure about the level of interest initially, but eventually I would hope to get it to 10-12 teams with two pools.
Comment, ideas ?

i would suggest an odd number of players per team- makes for less ties.

Noted. Finding two women per team may have been problematical anyway.
Starting to warm up to the idea of teams based on home courses as opposed to clubs, so that a club like the wncdgc with over 100 members would not be limited to one team. They could send Richmond Hill,Mars Hill,Black mtn,Owens,Avery Springs...

makes sense...
finding women for teams was always the biggest problem for captains early in the vti.

It sounds like the VTI could have grown into a huge deal. Was there ever discussion about using other private courses in the area ?

i used the grange one year when we got flooded out over here but other than that no. if i wanted to expand (which i don't- the current setup is just right for a weekend) i would just add more holes on our land.

the 27 hole layout at HH is basically to accommodate the vti- first vti was 6 teams, then 8, now 12 with decade long waiting list.

I would not expect more than 6 teams the first year and probably less. I wonder about using a second course the second day to keep everyone involved. All teams would play each other twice on two different courses, with or without finals, but no semis for sure. We have two private courses near each other that would work.

I'm now looking at 9 players per team, tied to the same club or home course,with ratings protected divisions and age constraints.
Divisions would be something like this;
I-950-970 2 players
II-925-949 2 players
III-900-924 2 players
IV-under 899 2 players
V-women under 750 1 player
2 Masters and two grandmasters per team (any division).
Head to head, round robin, matchplay.

I know this is outside the normal tournament box, but i am going to keep ammending and plugging away...comments ?

What if your club/course team doesnt have players rated high enough for one of the divisions?? And would you not want at least one round of best disc format? Give us dates so we can clear the calenders buddy!!
