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...

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.

Certainly, on a given course, and particularly in a given group playing...

The answer is, you shouldn't care.

It has no value for you.

But for someone who is a spectator---or a promotor, hoping for more spectators---well, araytx pretty well covered that.

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.

Or just taste. If the consensus of 50 or 100 different reviewers ranks Course A higher than Course B, I find it presumptuous to say, "No. Course B is better." All I can say is, I personally like...
