There are a couple of threads here, full of fools like you.

The thing is, even if the PDGA keeps track of it, TDs would have to collect a lot more of those $10 "non-member" fees if they could be applied to membership.

As it is, a player who expects to...

Fair point.

Ideally, it's the designer. Ideally, the designer does it right, and nothing ever changes.

The TD becomes the de facto designer with course changes, time changes, putting a...

I played one that was bad enough that I walked off after 5 holes. But I've since read of it's being re-designed, apparently into a decent course. I wouldn't appreciate that, if I hadn't seen the...

Any way you cut it, it's a little more work for TDs. Particularly, as John says, early-season TDs. Probably more work for the PDGA. 7 events is better than 5---if it were 5, there would be...

As for myself, if time permits I'll play those crappy courses---not to pad my numbers, but just for the new experience. Rarely have I played a course so bad I regretted playing it. Many times I've...

They certainly should be.

One issue of par is that it must be applied to all holes, good or bad.

One alleviating factor is that it most matters at top-level events, and as the sport grows at...

One of my local courses (Earlewood) still has those Steady Ed pars on the signs. SSA about 46, par 68.

I'm a little curious as to why ownership or management might believe a hole is too easy relative to par, and in need of lengthening or design change, unless based on results of actual play.

Well, it's certainly a simpler process if you ignore the definition, or make no attempt to conform to it.

Perhaps we should make the distinction and not say, "par on this hole is wrong", but that...

I saw "grow the sport" used several times recently, locally, and positively, saluting the guy who negotiated to get a new course installed on a (ball) golf course.

As for sport vs. game, whether...

Can't tell much from that.

One of the things I did when we were first designing holes for our course, was to make a list of them and rate each one by degree of handedness: L+3 (severe lefty hole,...

I'm just guessing, of course. If a restraining order is something so time-dependent that they open the court just for it, that's different. As with much of this, I have no idea.

Depends on the type of court. If the hearing is stuffed among dozens of cases in local court, may not have cost more than a few minutes, and a few more minutes' paperwork.

Good. Never toss those sheets. One day they'll be treasures; you'll look at them and wonder "What was I thinking?", or marvel at the ideas that turned out to be spot-on from Day 1.
