I had bad dreams about those damn white posts for weeks.
Seriously man, Phil Moore is the best course available there and is the closest to a professional level course the tourney offers. I love that course.

What tier is this event considered?

Any other advice for a first timer?

Thanks.
This would be the tournament to go to, in my opinion

It's between this and Am Nats for me as far as favorite tournaments of the year. BG is about the people, I have so much fun hanging out with and meeting new people all week in a fun competitive setting. It is very organized and well run, great players pack, good solid courses - not a single one makes my favorites list, but all quite enjoyable and offer good competition. Am Nats is about the event and the competition. I guess what I'm getting at is that I definitely recommend BG Ams to anyone that's looking for a great DG week.

I played the BG Ams in 2012 and had fun even though I was a bit under the weather and got crushed by courses. Liked Phil Moore , Hobson, and Keiriekes. Did not enjoy BGTC course much at all, some holes on that there are mighty dangerous for an older person to retrieve errant throws. Met some cool peeps and had a good time for the most part, thinking about doing it again this year if I can make it.

Yeah, you can sign up now and then get your PDGA number later, as long as it is before the event.
