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.

Strikes me as odd. For JJ, perhaps it was just a harassment move, that he wasn't going to follow through on, or figured he couldn't win. For MM, it seems very odd not to show up; if you're accused...

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.

The solar eclipse mention reminds me that for the 2017 eclipse, the center line passed 3 miles from our course; we had about 1.5 seconds less than the maximum totality. So no travel; all I had to do...

You have a while to plan, before you can take a day off for a solar eclipse.

A lunar eclipse isn't a real big deal but, if you're going to be out looking at it, why not be throwing discs? ...

And that's in a place without terribly good support from the parks...

I don't think you can come up with a formula, without knowing what everyone's average scores are in both sports.

You might try some sort of accumulated match play, which would reward holes won,...

That would just come to renewing on the installment plan, extra work (and manpower expense) for the PDGA.

If everyone could renew one $10 event at a time, why wouldn't they?

Mostly when OB is behind the basket. And it just mitigates the OB penalty; still better to come up short of the OB, and save a stroke.

But, yeah, it can produce a boring shot after OB.
