Default Where Should Pro Worlds Go?

Okay so the two course format has been set which opens up a lot more possibilities for where Pro Worlds can be set.

If you could pick the locations yourself what are the Top 5 places Pro Worlds should go after Smugglers Notch?

Probably not the top choice, but it would be interesting to see it back in Charlotte, Renny & Nevin, with no softening of the courses. And a clear cell signal, for those who care.

There'd be an argument for Selah Ranch, on the basis of the courses' reputations.

It would be interesting what holes would be lengthened at Nevin to challenge those guys. 2, 13 and 15 are almost gimmes at that level. And a few would be interesting to see how many of the par fours the guys would take risks to try to get 2s on. 4, 9, 14, 18 could be 2'd with really aggressive 500' drives.

They are pretty far apart but Iron Hill and Nockamixon would be a pair I'd love to see.

It might be difficult to find two Gold level courses near each other with enough balance of open and wooded holes between them. I'm thinking maybe you find a populated area with a good wooded gold course paired with a golf course type venue available to design a long gold temp course, especially if the goal is to get more spectators.

Forgot about Tyler State Park too......so some combination of those 3 with a host hotel in between them.

I'm sure cities are lining up to get their proposals ready!

Did I miss something?
I don't want to de-rail the thread, but is the 4-round, 2 course format written in stone somewhere?
Not an unqualified success in everyone's opinion...

What was the consensus opinion of the players? Not the entire field, but the players close enough to the top that we can say were actually competing for the championship?

My guess is that it's not written in stone, but is a pretty sure thing for the next couple of years----barring a huge outcry from the players, or the future hosts.

Yes, it is written into stone.
