Default 2017 Worlds

Forgive me if there has been other threads on this, but just curious, has there been a final decision made about the 2017 World's location? If not, any rumored final list of cities? Thanks!

I hadn't previously seen an announcement that they are holding the Pro Worlds in Augusta and North Augusta. When they announced the rest of the sites in March, they said they were still identifying the site.

Now, since they don't need a lot of courses for the new Pro Worlds, and they didn't list Appling, I wonder if they are even using IDGC. I'll assume Hippodrome (at least some of it), but what else?

Might include Langley Pond, a brand-new, quite challenging course near Augusta.

From what I hear it will be Langley pond and hippo gold. They were waiting on the websites to get up and running.

I don't think they even had a legit announcement for it. I just looked a couple weeks ago and it wasn't there.

I wonder if they didn't get a lot of cities bidding...

2017 Masters Worlds in Grand Rapids, MI. That's all that really matters.

Strictly speaking, that wouldn't be Augusta, at all.

288 players is 4 pools, on 2 courses would be 1 round per day?

I heard that the IDGC will be involved. But I'm not 100% on that. The IDGC, being operated by the PDGA does set up a bit of a conflict of interest situation.
