I think the format for the BSF is being changed too.. no more 2-round days. I'm pretty sure it was on the PDGA site?

Yes, this. Absolutely. For our local tourney, I use layouts with approximately 1/3 left-to-right finishing holes, and it definitely has a reputation as being a lefty friendly course. ;)

Umm.. I'm afraid that's not correct. In 'unofficial' ratings (which appear in the event I linked, because it was so recent), multiple fields playing the same course at different times are *not*...

I'm pretty sure Chuck has presented data on that before, and there's no statistically significant bias toward a higher-rated field. Here's an example from the event I help run:

I'm curious about this myself.. hopefully Steve West will run hole-to-rating and hole-to-total correlations for the event, so we can get some numbers on just how random the scores were (if at all). :)

Hi Wendell,

The round ratings feature in DGCR is essentially as accurate as the course 'foliage' value (i.e. lightly wooded, moderately wooded, or heavily wooded) and hole lengths are at capturing...

Ropes.. how are they done?

Ok, I was curious of if anyone had any knowledge of how roped OB is actually done (i.e. what hardware is used? Can it be purchased off the shelf, or does it need to be created by hand?)? :)

Thanks!

Yep, holes 4, 6, and 9 would be my top three contenders for re-design too. Hole 6, especially, is just not an interesting shot.
