I hope the other park users and the park rangers will come around though, they were probably the rudest I've experienced at any event.
Aditionally I am planning on adding a 400 ish ft par 3 sidearm to replace hole 8 between the DGPT 14 and 15. Players and spectators will not have to cross the road or transition through the tennis courts. Replaces a must birdie with something that will create a little more drama. Adds a big sidearm or slow anny that the course is missing.

Re: park staff - that will be resolved by next year. People in the park? Can't fix stupid or mean. Unfortunately the park doesn't border areas where people are used to being civil to each other. There is a lot of new management, I sent videos, so I will do my best to get as many amenities closed as possible AND post signs that say the basketball courts and tennis are closed that day. Tennis players wont enter...but the basketball folks.. it will probably piss them off even more. The signs would be posted where they walk in from the woods, so maybe they will just turn around.

Sounds awesome! I can't wait to come back, and I have total faith that things will be next level given adequate prep time.

...and yeah, there's nothing you can do about the park patrons. Some kid who was about 7 years old rode his skateboard (well, kinda, it was on grass) over to the spectating area by Hole 3's green and was calling one gentleman a "bitch" over and over, then threatened to shoot him.

I went up to that young buck and told him face to face that he was to be quiet, but I really wanted to grab his board and take him to find his mother...

FWIW. My understanding on how the 2020 season is going to work is that Jomez will NOT be paid for the NT events. But, will also NOT be paying for the NT events. It will be a net zero for the PDGA.
