Any reason why? That's a surprise.

East/West are RIP'd to make way for the "Supreme 18" which will be used for DDO later this month and Worlds later this summer.

The phrasing of this makes me think that Jones East and West are only gone for 2022?

Sounds permanent, perhaps so there's a public gold level course they have more flexibility to tweak and improve than the Country Club. Thought I read they were adding back a shorter 9 or 18 course in the remaining property.

I was just there on Friday and they were backfilling the old basket's holes. Poured all new tees and set many new pins. I did confirm with EMac that those layouts are extinct before I reported it.

Yep! Didn't have time to play it but it knocks about 4,000ft off the big course: https://www.dgcoursereview.com/course.php?id=13045

I never even considered the obvious, logical reason for those 2 going extinct

Makes total sense now. Excellent review and course updates Surge5.

Thanks! Looking forward to attending Worlds out there and I wanted to get a feel for the level of "new pro-level course" that was coming. I shot +11 and I felt good about that.

I seen the last round live in 2019 at Lake Eureka. It was a good time. Played Northwood Gold the next day. I'd have been ecstatic with an 11 over round . It's fun playing these top level courses, it makes you appreciate how good these players are getting. It also highlights all the weak spots in my game

Hey, Chris I actually took the time to read the link and I figured it out. Their phrasing on the website is bad. Should read "To make up for the loss of the East and West courses, a shorter version of the new course has also been installed which will be available for most of 2022." They have to pull the short baskets 4 days before each major (DDO and Worlds) but I think they're gonna do it for a little longer.
