If they are two separate courses then they need to be treated as shuch and not a course that to me would seem like they are calling it x2 due to alternate tee pads. in which case if thy were alternate tee pads the course should be with alternates listed with them as alternate tee pads.

Nope, not alternate pads. There are 37 pads. Original 12 is still there too, even though it's not part of either new course. Its basket is used for Gold 12 And approached from the other direction. I may play the extinct course today.

Yeah with Steamboat Park Pierre South Dakota if they actually put the water treatment plant in where they are planning then the course is a 14 or 13 hole course depending on if hole 6 survives a new bridge being put in. They might Scrap baskets 6/7-10 or just sell off the DB-5 baskets with old Mach III tops, basically are like modern Mach III now. They would have to cut the basket from the concrete block the DB-5 round base is in. That is assuming the city does not sell off or scrap the entire course for $$, they already do not like having to work around a few of the baskets during a 3.25 day festival in June that starts on a Thursday night.

I don't know, but I'm guessing John Houck wanted to concentrate on Selah?

Although I read in another thread a hint that they're holding out hope for the future. It's currently listed as "unplayable" on this site.

That's Coyote Trace, not to be confused with Coyote Trace. Wish they'd named the new one slightly differently. In memoriam.
