"Nearest point" is has always struck me as vague. If you haven't disturbed the ants, it can be fairly close. What about hornets? A rattlesnake? A grizzly bear?

Yeah, that too.

The course I began on, is in a park of huge old trees, and it's lost a dozen of key ones over the years.

When I started, there were 2 courses in my state (now there are well over 100), and we had to take day-long road trips to bag 2 additional courses. The courses were empty; the baskets were...

Gotcha. That makes more sense than what I imagined, which was, you just coming up with an SSA out of thin air.

Why would you want to manually change the SSA? It seems to me that would make it fairly meaningless -- just your personal feeling on how tough you thought the course was or would be, that day. Am I...

If your conscience won't let you throw them due to the 3g advantage, sell them.
