I've thoroughly tested this theory, and proven it untrue.

Perhaps that's the difference in playing the course on your computer screen, and playing it in person.

I like it, but it doesn't go far enough.

Some events are open to those who can type fastest in a flash online registration. That's not a great method, either.

I'm TD of one of those events,...

It's not the norm around here (central SC). The only unlisted courses I know of are strictly private---"me and my buddies", or a school or church not open to the general public.

But I always...

Garnet is a 54, about 10 points per stroke. Diamond is 58.5, 8 points per stroke. Pretty consistent, within a stroke of those numbers, unless the weather is terrible.

For all tournament players, another benefit of setting par is to equitably penalize missed holes.

Short of making a missed hole an automatic DQ---whether missed for late arrival, mid-round...

"All-par-3" isn't really a "par"---it's a scorekeeping shorthand. It works well enough for most uses, and most courses.

The answer is, you shouldn't care.

It has no value for you.

Actually, cell service might be fine at TDTM. The Canyon's more secluded, than remote.

But, yeah, routing with the other events would be an issue. The tour moves west-to-east.

Bogey nailed it.

Jackson course is pretty big; if you've only got time for 1 course, you might not have time for it.

The good news is that, no matter which course you choose, it'll be good.

I'm a little curious as to why the rules ever required the stance to be inbounds, in the first place. It seems, somewhat like soccer, that the position of the disc could be all that mattered.

50 F.

Or, as I describe it, "20 below", by which I mean, "below comfortable". Because, here in South Carolina, if it's below 50 I know I can procrastinate a few days, and it'll likely be warmer....

Most of the problem comes from people who don't realize they're showing up at a private course. They google "disc golf" or open their favorite map app, see a course, and head to it.
