(1) Boring holes, where the score is almost always the same, and...

Perhaps, at some scale. I don't think we're anywhere near that scale yet.

On the other hand, they'd be duplicating a lot of work that applies to both levels.

What "most people"?

The mostly-Am PDGA membership keeps voting for directors who follow the current path---or acquiescing by not voting.

We have a few of those on our course. We call them "decision trees".

For the most part, they don't involve tee shots, but fairways shots on higher-par holes. This means you want your drive to...
