I definitely want to go. But the 18 hours of travel time is making me sort of hesitant.

It sucks they aren't utilizing two of the best courses in the Twin Cities metro area.

An old flyer said these were the eight, but Chuck had also made some comment about the Twin Cities being one of many examples where they didn't use (or won't be using) one of the courses included in the original bid:
CP Adams, Kenwood Trails, Kaposia, The Valley, Oakwood, Lakewood, Acorn, and HSSA)

I suspect the biggest reason BRP would not be used (if that is the case) is because it is 20+ miles away from the nearest course in the group listed above.

There was some speculation about what courses to use when the bid was first announced here, http://www.dgcoursereview.com/forums...ad.php?t=72822.

I believe there is a rule that requires all the courses be within a certain distance of the host hotel. The last I have heard is the Blue Ribbon Pines is too far away and will instead be used only for doubles on the first day, which is BS.
Six courses are pretty much a lock to be used: 1.Kaposia, 2.The Valley, 3.Oakwood, 4.Lakewood Hills, 5.Kenwood Trails, and 6.Hyland Hills. As for the other two spots it looks like it is between Bryant Lake, Acorn, C.P. Adams, Lions park in Shakopee, or Elm Creek.

The dates have been finalized, July 19th to the 26th.
It is posted here, http://www.exploreminnesota.com/even...p/details.aspx.

After this year (my first), I'm hooked on the Worlds experience. I will do everything in my power to attend, however, we plan on starting a family this year, so we'll see how that goes... (read: see if I have any time to practice and $$ to go)
