Default 2016 Am worlds courses

2016 am Worlds are scheduled to be held in the Madison Wisconsin area next year. Any Madisonites have an idea which course are planned for use? Which courses near Madison may be called into play?

Tournament Director here...

Ziggy is correct...

Elver
Hiestand
Token Creek
Capital Springs
Bird's Ruins at Langer Park in Marshall

Elver, Hiestand and Capital Springs are each 18 holes.

Token Creek is 27 holes.

Bird's Ruins is currently 18 holes, but we are in the process of adding 9 more.

So three 18s and two 27s...the equivalent of six 18s.

Asst. TD here ...

To add to Glide's post, some pools will likely play 27s (Vallarta-Ast / Token Creek and Bird's Ruins) on consecutive days, rather than 18-36 or 36-18, before or after the shuffle. The other three courses are in a fairly compact geographical area to each other which will help minimize travel times between rounds when playing two 18s in a day.

Cap Springs is going to be part of Am Worlds? For real?

Oh absolutely. It's a gem for juniors, ladies, and elder divisions. Not so much for MA1. I definitely could see some pucker factor with the prairie grass being declared o.b.

Should be much more than that, although we won't have the capacity that Kalamazoo had this year. With six 18 hole courses, you can get eight pools of 72 for a total of 576 by using each course twice a day. Two 27s in place of three 18s could make it a bit more complicated, but we're working with the PDGA to get it all figured out. I'd like to see ~576, which would still be bigger than Emporia in 2013 and all of them from 2011 or earlier.

It's not a super-gold course by any means, but it should work just fine for Ams. Yes, for Advanced, it will likely be their lowest score. At last year's MCO, three of the top 25 in this year's Am Worlds (plus second place in <=16) played it, including one of the final four (Gavin), plus a final four member from 2014 AM Worlds (Jordan). They had 48, 49, 49, 51 & 51. SSA was just under 47, as one of our DGCR friends shot 47 for a 995 rating on his way to victory in Advanced. The course played with almost no O.B., which may change for Am Worlds.

Capital Springs is a gorgeous course. It has two sets of tee pads and three basket locations on every hole so we have a lot of flexibility in how easy or difficult it plays. Most of the holes are wide open. However, there are several very nice wooded holes. There would have been more, but American Indian effigy mounds were discovered while the parks department was working on the course. The course has a lot of elevation changes and a well done island hole

Keep in mind that no division will play every course. The highest rated divisions like Advanced will probably play the more challenging courses like Bird's Ruins, Token Creek, Hiestand and/or Elver.

The lower rated will probably play Capital Springs, Elver, Hiestand and/or Token Creek. If I was in one of the lower rated divisions, I would have more fun at Cap Springs than Bird's Ruins.

Collectively, I think that we have a great group of courses for this event.
