Awesome!!!

How many more new courses does that mean we'll be getting?

No Junior divisions. Consider how difficult it will be to increase the number of Advanced (MA1) pools past 4 and be able to do a shuffle. We figured out a way to get to 6 pools for MN Worlds but it wasn't used.

Or a smaller field (than 2012) leading to a lot of griping about which of the abundant courses aren't used.

Because one thing you know about Charlotte. Everyone there has different list of "best courses" in the city, and it seems like 93 courses each have advocates for why they should be included.

More pools is great if it can be done but just make sure you have plenty of courses to accommodate the number of players.

The suggestion I would make would be to have it so everyone in the same division is playing at the same time. Different courses of course, but at least under the same weather conditions and with the same break time between rounds.

Take for instance a day where A pool and B pool, both MA1, have only one round that day. It sucks to have A pool play in the morning and the wind is at 5-10 mph and then in the afternoon B pool plays the same course and wind is 17-22 mph.

That's reality with multiple pools. The same thing would happen if A & B played the same course using tee times.

I'm just saying having them play different courses at the same time would be preferable to having them play the same course at different times of the day.

I know what you're saying. But once you think thru how the schedules have to work in these big events, those two pools have to play the same course on their one round day, especially when there are also C & D pools in the same division.

Why do they have to play the same course on their one round day?
