It's been announced in the local group on Facebook that it's closed starting today.
Another thing they are trying to avoid is tearing the course up with too many playing since there's been rain in the area lately. But the weather for the week looks great!

It makes even more sense considering covid. I know its not that likely that someone could get infected on the course but why take the chance during tourney week. It sucks for people that want to play the course in the great condition it will be in, but it should still be in top shape next weekend if you can make it then drchain. Plus, I think they pull all the unused baskets during tourney week, so if you come next week, you would get to play all 24 holes.

All good. I've played Idlewild the week before the tourney 3 of the last 4 years. Always fun to play a course with freshly marked OB and baskets in tourney position--especially this one! So this weeklong ban definitely seems Covid-related and I totally get the need to keep the surfaces in good shape. I'm gonna have to get up there next Monday!

Side note/thought: ever since the 2017 DGPT (and that layout permanently saved to UDisc), I've played the additional holes only once. That DGPT layout to me is so incredibly good, I don't want to waste time and energy on the others (blasphemy!).

I've played there 3 times, and only ever the DGPT layout. My second favorite course behind Maple Hill. I've never loved a course that beats me up so much. Still dreaming of my first back-9 birdie there...that whole throw straight thing seems to get me. Very punishing course once you get even the slightest bit off the fairway.

I honestly think this is more of a trend to coddle the pro players. Allows them to practice without fan distraction. I remember last year some whining of no water out on the course for practice rounds.

Already posted this in the Brodie thread but figured there might be some people who would want to check out the course conditions that wouldn't look at that thread...

^Around the 28:20 mark, you get a good look at the new location on hole 2.

Fridays live cards...

FPO:

Becca Cox
PP
Heather Young
Val Mandujano

MPO:
Eagle
KJo
Keith
Zach Arlinghaus… Hopefully he has as good an event as he did last year. It was real fun to watch that young man tear up Idlewild. Last weekend at the Lexington Open, he shot 960 the first round and 1078 the second
