USDGC Rep - 2 chances at courses chosen by the players of GA

Postby keith johnson » Fri Apr 24, 2009 11:15 pm

Georgia’s USDGC State Representative Information

The top 2 vote getting courses have been chosen and the polls have been closed, and this will now hopefully give everyone time to make plans for playing one or both of the qualifiers to be the representative for Georgia. I know this will not make EVERYONE happy, but I think it’s a fair compromise to give several players a TRUE shot at the title, by combining what the players were asking for and still getting the Rep chosen in time to meet the USDGC deadline for entrants.

This information will hopefully make MOST of the players who wish to have a chance to represent Georgia happy, while allowing people who can’t play on a Saturday or a Sunday equal opportunities to Qualify as the two qualifiers will be held one on a Sat and one on a Sun.

To give everyone as fair a shot as possible the qualifying will take place on June 6th, 2009 at White Oak Park in Dallas, GA and on June 14th, 2009 at Perkerson Park in Atlanta, GA.
Signups will be from 8:15 to 9:15 AM the day of EACH Event with a first round tee off at 9:45AM There will be NO PRE-REGISTRATIONS accepted. Players must pay in CASH only. If you are not paying to play in the Qualifier, you are welcome to watch the action and support your favorite golfer.
The top 4 players from EACH weekend will then play on August 9th at Central Park’s Supersized layout for the state spot. This gives 8 people a fair shot at the title, and if someone had an off day on the 6th, they can try again on the 14th to make it into the top 4. Or if someone plays better at one course over the other they could take their chances without feeling it was the course that cost them a shot at the spot.

Seeing that now there are two qualifiers and a final, I am adjusting the prices and doing something at the same time to help the 2 courses the Qualifiers will be held at.
The Entry fee will be 20 dollars at either qualifier with 15 dollars going to the entry fee and expenses of the overall winner from the 8 finalists and the other 5 dollars going to the course fund for Perkerson Park(from their entries) and the Tee Pad fund at White Oak(from their entries). If 15-20 players show at each qualifier the Entry fee for the USDGC will be covered and there will be plenty of extra money left over for the winners’ expenses. The 5th place finisher at each Qualifier will get their 20 dollars back and there will be NO OTHER PAYOUTS to anyone else.
If anyone who is in the top 4 at White Oak wishes to compete at Perkerson on the 14th their score will NOT be counted if they finish in the top 4 and the spot will move down to the persons with the top 4 scores at Perkerson NOT ALREADY QUALIFIED (just as USDGC spots are given away at Regional Events)

At Central Park we will hold an Event where the top 8 finalists from the 2 qualifiers will play 2 rounds at NO COST and battle it out for the lone spot to be the State Rep. All others who also wish to play will only pay 10 dollars with payouts to the top 50% of the field EXCLUDING the winner from the 8 finalists who will be getting the money from the 2 Qualifiers and the entry for the USDGC paid for. Other players in the Field at CENTRAL are limited to 32 other players MAX - NO EXCEPTIONS.

I sincerely hope that you all will be satisfied with the 2 courses you have chosen for the Qualifiers to be held at and with having the 2 dates that ANYONE who possibly wants to have a chance to be the State Rep will come out and try to qualify.

Keith did you seriously make the qualifier the same weekend as an "A" tier in Birmingham????!!!!!!! WTF! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE change this event to the weekend before or after. There is no action either of these weekends except for the IDGC tournament on the 20th. Seems like a no brainer to me, I doubt I'm the only pro in GA that would like to go to both of these events.

We are trying to arrange things so that either me or Gomez will be the qualifier -

Yes Vach I understand, It is extremely difficult to find a weekend that did not conflict with other PDGA Events, AND could fit with scheduling at Central, AND be done in time for the USDGC deadline for registration. There are only 2 free weekends and 1 of them involves the Saturday before Worlds, and the other was the day I picked. I knew about the Event and had originally chosen the 13th or 27th as the day, but there are things going on with Central those weekend days, so that left the 21st which is NOT what I wished to do by running 2 Events at 2 locations 2 days in a row, but it has to be run sometime. I could always just do it like some other states and just pick someone, or have an essay contest, but in my opinion, it is something that should be decided on a course that has some challenges similar to what the players will face in Rock Hill.

I wish I could make everyone happy, I wish there was more weeks left to choose from, but unless it is run on New Years Day, I don't think there is a free weekend left in the state anymore. I don't think it affects more than 2-3 golfers, whereas using another states options for choosing a contestant affects EVERY other golfer in the state.

Keith, check the pdga calander again. In the month of June there is not a single tournament on a Sunday in the state of Georgia, but you just had to pick the same weekend of an "A" tier that is only two hours away. I realize that there may not be that many golfers going to the Solstice Summer Sizzler because a lot of people will be going to your tournament the day before. However your tournament is already full... so what about people who did not get in, or are choosing to play the Alabama tourney?....Now they have to decide on simply not attending their state qualifying tournament, or missing out on an "A" tier for the slim chance that they might get first place in the qualifying tournament!

Second of all, there are other courses suitable for a USDGC qualifier other than Central Park.....so if June 21st is the only day Central will let us have an event, then that excuse is LAME.

Basically you could have choosen any Sunday in June (besides the 21st) to have the qualifier, and it would not have conflicted with any major tournaments. This may be irrelevant, but I have noticed that this is not the only time you have scheduled an event the same weekend as a Solstice event....what's up with that? I know that it's *neat* that the super six series are all six weeks apart, but I don't understand why you are so stubborn that you have to schedule your events the same weekend as major event only two hours away.

Look, I understand that players have the option of not playing in your tournament, it does give them more options, but look at it this way...Players who play in the USDGC are best of the best, and these are the same players that usually play in "A" tiers and other big events. Those that know me know that I hardly ever even make posts on this message board, and I usually keep my opinions pretty reserved. Maybe I'm taking this too personal, but I definately think that our state qualifer should be on a different day. Somebody please back me up on this.

just throwing it out there to stir the pot some more.... you could probably run @ perkerson on a different date.... higher par & SSA than supersized CP, more centrally located, more similarities to winthrop gold, get a bigger turnout & more $$ to the winner...just sayin' you could

This really isn't fair to the pro players not in GSSS4. That tourny was full before our State Rep tourny was even announced. Many pros arent constantly monitoring this messageboard. I didnt even know registration had opened until it was already full, luckily I already had a spot (by the way it sucks that there are only 9 pro players!)

I believe that the player that can best repersent our state at the USDGC should go. 2 of the 9 in GSSS4 are qualified. So thats 7 pros that can play GSSS4 and our state rep tourny. i have 2 points- 1.more pro players may have signed up fopr GSSS4 if they new they couldnt play The Summer Solstice and our state rep tourny. and #2-the better players play bigger tournys, so how will the best player to repersent our state at USDGC be in 2 places at once?

This is not a fair situation. Even though I don't play open yet I was considering playing the qualifier for the hell of it but not now. I have been planning on going to the Solstice tournament for months. Why not have the qualifier at J.P. Mosely?

For that matter, the crucible is better still and we might be able to raise a nice chunk of change for the winner. There would be a nice crowd waiting in line even if they did not have a chance at winning...

Vach does have a good point.
Keith, can't you reschedule it to a Sunday?

Seems like we have a lot of options at our disposal. - various courses, various days, etc...
Give it some thought.
damn..., that is one fine piece of plastic.

WOW.....what a great suggestion!!!! Perkerson is a gem of a course and having it there especially if Ritger is giving the OK, just makes sense. Besides the great reasons already listed above (location for everyone being the ideal!).....its a temp course that we all want to become permanent. It could only help the cause.........just my two cents. 8)

June 27-28th - Mosquito Madness C Tier - Hardeeville, SC & Pooler, GA

For a smart guy, to take something and make it personal is not very intelligent.
And for someone who has YOUR sponsor as the DRIVING force behind almost EVERYTHING in my Series, you honestly don't really think I'm doing anything personal to you or Chris or Rand and the players in Georgia.

I've already stated the reseaons, I worked for 3 weeks to find some other Sunday for Central.

I'm sorry to anyone who can't play, but with only 26 players form around the state who played last year with NO CALENDAR CONFLICTS, it doesn't seem to be a spot that too many who want to try for the USDGC seem to be gointg out of their way for either way.

When the USDGC has Travellers on their course, I'll consider a course that is a temp course. :mrgreen:

"TheP" has nowhere near the similarities to Winthrop than CP does. And CP is configured to Be "ready to play" at any time.

Thanks for your stirring though, it is appreciated.

Yes it does suck that there are only 9 pros with everything they benefit from by playing in them. But it's THEIR lloss and I can't control that.
The GSSS has nothing to do with the State qualifier as it didn't last year, or any year going forward.

Any Pro who doesn't know about the GSSS by now, doesn't care to play in them, or wants to whine instead, whether they EVER see the message board or not.
And someone who has played in them should be the first ones to "help their PRO friends know about them if they want the numbers, the same way the AMS tell each other about Events not to miss. :shock:

I'm just gonna give it to Lorelei for the holidays instead, as it will be a good experience for her after Worlds in KC - Worlds and USDGC in one year, what else could anyone ask for?

It would keep Eveyone else from whining about the course and day if nothing else. :mrgreen:

I'm pretty sure we could get all metal for this and it wouldn't be a problem. The reason for the fabric baskets is that it would be very expensive to buy all 18 and I have no clue how they could be brought by one person (John). common sense should have kicked in by now)

Maybe John would change the rules for hole 18 just for you?? :lol:

At Least think of a different course to achieve a different weekend and more players.... it's not rocket science.... or is it?

John doesn't have to change ANYTHING for me or anyone else, nor would I ask him to. He is a smart guy who knows what makes a good hole and a good course, he can figure stuff out all by himself.

Date, time and place are set - you can be there or not, your call.

The way to look at it is as it stands - an opportunity to represent your home state at the GREATEST disc golf Event in the country - if something else means more to you than that 20 dollar opportunity, that is YOUR call, and yours and eveyone elses decision to make on thier own.

I feel sorry for all the Supersized CP haters in 2010. - you all have 17 months to get ready for the NEXT big Event in the state. :shock: :wink:

Keith, I think that you, as our State Coordinator and a REPRESENTATIVE of OUR interest should take in to account the opinions of those you represent. When and how and where the GEORGIA STATE REPRESENTATIVE to the USDGC is decided should not be up to you alone. It's high time that decision is not dependent on what suits you, but what suits the Georgia Disc Golf community as a whole. OUR representative, our opinion. It ain't all about you Keith.

Your suggestions usually have some merit, but some respect for others would go a long way in ingratiating the same for yourself. Just because you feel Central park is the ONLY place or that day is the ONLY day doesn't validate your arguments. Don't be such a dick about everything and everyone will work with you rather than against you and you'll make a lot more people happy. When you dictate to all of us and go off on your tirades on why you're right and everyone else is wrong, it only propagates more dissent. Be nice, man. You'll get so much more done and have a much better time doing it.

Perhaps, the better approach may have been to solicit opinions on where and when before it got to be so urgent. Maybe even ask for some help in getting it all done. There's no reason why someone else could not assist you or why it has to be at any particular park or on any particular day or for that matter, any day at all. Perhaps that's not even the best way to decide our rep. Have you even asked?

That's my biggest problem with you Keith. You dictate and demand. Sure, you have responsibilities as our State Rep, but that doesn't mean you should make everyone bend to your will. Be our representative, not our dictator.

fully agreed with Woody.

Keith >> the weekend of June 21 has 2 major conflicts -- an A tier within 2 hours & the savannah C tier. As state coordinator you should not ignore that and you should represent what people want. You do neither.

Why not move it to the following weekend of June 28 when there are no conflicting events in the area? Or you could pick another date that also has minimal conflicts. If CP is only available on june 21, consider other venues. JP Moseley, Sandy Creek, Perkerson....all available & all comparable to CP.

Yes, people will still play in your event if you keep it on June 21....but many more people will play if you change the date to another weekend with no major schedule conflicts. And i'll go out on a limb and say that the majority of people that will play in this event would prefer that you change the date. Minimizing conflicts is your basic core role as state coordinator. Do your job. Doesn't have to be set in stone just because you so decreed it.

I was trying to stay away from this but to be honest this is crap. Now all the top pros in the state that travel and play A tiers, will have to miss one for a chance to be the rep. The pooler/ savannah tourny is 5 hours away for a c-tier, most would not travel to. The a tier is in birmingham, 2 hours away. I understand that you worked hard on this but its garbage. So basically anyone who wasn't signed up for your tourny the day before, has to either skip out on the a tier, or miss the usdgc rep spot. Garbage.

It is LAME that he is running it on a weekend that most pro's will be out of town.

It is GOOD that he gives us all an opportunity (weak at best i know) for the spot, in Arizona they give it to the person with the deepest pocket donations to the club. Or the coordinators best friend so to speak, I am not dogging them out though as the spot can go to whoever the state rep sees fit.

I may have to come down if everyone is out.


Also it would be a good time to be thinking about the State Representative spot coming up for election, I hope that some of you vocal ones will run or find someone worthy of taking the spot.

Woody, very well put. My sentiments exactly.
Just not sure if it's sinking in. I would guess not.

Keith, just simply this and you can do whatever because that's what you do.
As State Coordinator, you should listen and adjust to the voice of whom you represent.
But whatever, I'm not going to waste any more of my fingers on this.
The whole damn world could be complaining, yet would still continue on your highlighted path.
It's the same old issues...

"TheP" has nowhere near the similarities to Winthrop than CP does. (O.B. on every hole, plus risk/reward on every hole doesn't count?) And CP is configured to Be "ready to play" at any time. (At any time??? Then why not on the weekend that you want to?)

Thanks for your stirring though, it is appreciated.

Central is not like the USDGC course.

Never said it was and never said I don't like "theP" - you can stop twisting things to fit your "dead horse scenario" now :lol:[/quote]



You never answered my questions in Red :roll: .... and How did I twist anything to suit my needs? I think it is the other way around.
There is tons of people not happy about this situation and you ignore all the comments. Time to let go of your pride and realize that we are giving you examples with plenty of sane comments.

Do you have some kind of deal with the Central park people? They obviously don't care about disc golf (ie: Rand's situation at the Atl Open). All of this really doesn't affect me much at all, but I still can see a bad deal for the major players in Ga that tour to many tournaments a year. An "A" tier is where the players flock to...and you are trying (whether you realize it or not) to steal attendance from other tournaments that are going on at the same time that you have coordinated (or lack of)

Hello,

The Savannah Disc Golf Club would like to hold a two day tournament on June 27-28 2009. This tournament will be on two course, one in Hardeeville, SC and the other in Pooler, GA. It will be a C tier tournament. I think the date should not conflict with any other area tournaments. Can you forward this on to our State Coordinators to confirm?

Thank you,

Wow you are at it again aren't you Keith, twisting words around and trying to make others look bad. I never said in my post that "Keith Johnson is not worthy of the coordinator spot", i was just trying to remind people that the spot is open for re election this year. This is an important topic to me as i work for the PDGA and live in the state of GA, it also seems that there are quite a few disgruntled PDGA members surrounding our state coordinator.

I never said i didn't like you.

Why don't you pick the Coordinator and let us know who it is and we won't need the election that way - you could just pick ALL the coordinators and we can save the PDGA money on a ballot this year. :lol:

I know this is early, but for those of us that want to go ahead and put on a calendar these dates, will the two prelims be a two round or a one round tourney, and also the sunday after GSSS5 (two rounds of central supersize), will be another two rounds, or a one round final?
Tentative start times?

And just for the record, I think this is MORE than fair to ALL disc golfers and if someone claims otherwise, they are just stupid and their opinion should never matter on anything ever again.

All Qualifiers will be 2 rounders as mental toughness as well as endurance are trademarks of the USDGC, and I'm trying to prepare the player as much as possible while eliminating any flukey one round issues from costing anyone a chance, or gaining a chance, while being fair to all concerned.

I will be joining you at one (only hopefully) or both if need be to give myself a shot.

And I'm still hopeful that this will be better received than the first go round, but I'm sure there will still be deteractors as I can never please everyone. :mrgreen:

All kidding aside, I think Keith did the right thing amidst all of the complaining.
Granted, the date did conflict with a major tournament, but then it became a
pissing match as to who's course was better. The idea was to hold the event at
a course that closely resembles what the winner would be faced with at Winthrop Gold.
Even though it is not near as fun, super sized Central WAS the closest with Perkerson
being second. White Oak is fun and not as hard as the two previous, but has a lot of fans.
I'm glad it got in the mix. I will be there to donate to the winner. I was surprised that
Moseley didn't get it. Maybe next year, we can rotate and use Moseley and Redan.

The good thing about White Oak is not that it is SO challenging, but that it is NEW and nobody has been practicing it for years and can come out and just be a LOCAL and kick arse. This is the same with Perkerson with the few exceptions of those guys out there EVERY week during singles, but still giving just a slight advantage to them, as it changes occasionally, therefore not giving too much of an advantage to anyone.

Either way, awesome deal all the way around for the USDGC spot!

If everyone can also please help the process by passing the TIMES and DATES to anyone who may be interested in playing so that they will know about it being 2 chances, 2 locations, etc. so that we get as many people that wish to try for the spot playing.

I'll be mentioning it at Wills and Central Doubles and if others of you will mention it at White Oak, Perkerson, Oregon, Sequoyah, and Redan dubs, along with Moseley, and McCurry we should cover the players who will be able to pass it along to all interested parties.

Thanks in advance,

LAME!!!

So now us out of towners have to come to ATL 2 times..........You always have to have control don't you Kieth....You couldn't just have central, so now you have to run both courses "WE" choose and the one your ego strokes.......

If you have to do this format why not do a qualifier in ATL, Athens, Augusta, and Savannah, then have one final in ATL.

I remember a couple of years ago that everyone had to drag their butt out to that LAME Patriots Park course to try to qualify.

As suggested above, maybe we should rotate the qualify around the state each year.

I vote for Lake Russell next year!!

I think it is more about the 1 player that actually wins the spot. This format will attract more players willing to donate their money to the eventual winner, meaning more money for the winner and some money going to the courses. That's a lot more then at Patriots when you would only have the people that had a shot at winning actually showing up. Maybe 10-12 people showing up, not much extra cash for the winner.

Jason,
That would be 3 times to come to Atlanta if you qualify in the first two events. I don't
recall Central winning any vote poll either and I don't think it's right to arbitrarily add it,
but it really doesn't matter to me. I will be donating anyway.

I see Jason's point. If you are coming from Augsuta to three events on different weeks, that is like playing in three C tiers. Not cheap, but if you win your expenses for your efforts would be well worth it.

You can only Qualify once, so 3 trips would mean you missed the first top 4 and made it to the top 4 at the second Qualifier, otherwise you are only making 2 trips from anywhere.

Central didn't "win" any polls any more than the other 2 "won" polls as they were unscientific polls to begin with, but it did show that even though there were courses from all over the state on the polls, and links on all the active and PDGA sites in GA, that supposedly there are over 75 disc golfers in the state who voted on them combined or multiple times for different IP addresses, and those were the top vote getters.

I had come up with the multiple course idea a few weeks before when talking with Mike D about his fundraiser at White Oak and thought it would work out well if Perkerson could get baskets to have a Sat and Sun Qualifers to give the most amount of people the best chance to try and win a spot. I think with the 3-4 top Pros being already Qualified that this year will offer up the best chance for "all of the other top Pros" to have a realistic shot to be the state rep, by having to prove it over multiple rounds on different courses and using different stratagies to try and win the coveted spot.
Those that want a shot will come out to one of them and try, others will complain no matter what I did, and I'll be at all 3 of them to congratulate the top 4 at each qualifier and give the paid entry form to the Winner at Central!

I wonder what complaints I would have heard if I had just changed the day to August 9th at Central as my first thought was?
I think this format wil work just fine, the winner will be someone deserving of the spot, and if I guess right they'll also cover most of their expenses in Rock Hill also, with the cash raised.

That's my opinion and all I'm going to say on it as it is said and done at this point.
Come play the courses and win your spot!

Lets add this up:

Lets say 2 10 gallon tanks of gas for the 2 trips 1 to qualify, 1 for final from anywhere in the state (unless you drive gas guzzling SUV, then maybe 3 tanks) - $45
Entry to 1 Event $20, final ZERO - $20
Lunch 2 times maybe $15- $20 - 20 max

Total spent $85

What you get if you win:
USDGC entry paid for $225
If only 11 people show at each Qualifier your Entry is paid for and you get your $85 in "spent money" back
If only 15 people show at each qualifier you get $200 in Expenses money after paid entry.
If only 20 people show at each qualifier you get $345 in expenses money after paid entry. :shock:

Paid USDGC spot to represent Georgia and any spending money - PRICELESS :mrgreen:

Who wants it?

I have a suggestion for next year.

How about grabbing 5 Georgia's tourneys (all over the state) and have a points system.

That will ensure that the best player that year, instead of the best player that day(s) gets the spot. Plus it eliminates schedule conflicts of adding a qualifier. It allows others players around the state to compete for it. A points system in the past also seems to attract more for attendance, and points are popular the players get to see how each player is stacking up against each other.

I would be willing to host and calculate the points for the events.

I would think that players would probably complain that they couldn't sign up for the tournament because it sold out too fast.....

I also think that these 5 tournaments would have to be located all over Georgia. So now they have to travel 5 times for a chance (if they sign up in time) to get the State spot at $80-$100 a tourney.

Not to mention NO SPENDING $$ to be won AND they still have to pay the entry fee to the USDGC.

The solution to this problem is to have a required minimum number or tournaments in the series that must be played and a throw away tournament, possibly two. Your lowest points score is dropped and only the top four count. That way someone can have a really bad tournament or miss a tournament and it won't count against them. There would need to be a seperate sign up at each event for those wanting to enter the points series so someone would have to be at each tournament to handle that. This is how the spending money and entry fee would be collected. It also allows ams to get into the mix as well if they choose to. Basically like entering into the ace pot. At the end of the series who ever has the most points and attended the required number of tournaments, minus their worst performance (throw-away score), would win the spot and be given the entry fee and spending money collected during the series.

Hello everyone,

I am the guy who was filming at white oak park during your first round play. I have finally finished editing the video and hope you like it.


Feel free to leave me comments on the video or here, I will try to read them and address concerns for any future videos. And sorry if the quality isn't what you expected, I have ordered a new camera but unfortunately it has not yet arrived.

Well done! Probably easier said than done, but maybe if you got a partner to catch the tee and then have you half way down the fairway where you could capture the rest of the drive. Do some editing and there you go! I have always wondered how disc golf could be videod so that it mimicked what golf on tv is like, ie. seeing the full flight of the disc. Putts and approach shots are easier to shoot I would think.
I think I need to go play White Oak sometime soon. Looks like a fun course.

John and I have conversed about the opportunity for others to play "theP" while it is temporarily set up, so this is how it will play out for those folks. AFTER THE FIRST ROUND IS OVER the first 12 players (in 3 somes) wishing to play can start on Hole 1 and that should have them finishing the conflicting fairway holes by the time the second round tee times start.

This is subject to change if we have a larger number of players and we need to use a shotgun start for the second round also.

My hope is the players who can not make the final or who think they have no shot still play both rounds in the Qualifier and help out the eventual winner, instead of trying to jam a round in while others that are competing for the spot are on the course. And of course $5 of that entry will also help the course fund at "theP" so it is a chance to contribute to TWO good causes and play 2 rounds instead of just 1.

See everyone SUNDAY morning.

Why would SKELETOR want to play in a tournament where the pro's gather to fight it out for a spot at the USDGC. They dont want amatuers at the USDGC unless they are spectators and spotters. It is a gathering of the finest discgolfers around and according to him he will get his arse handed to him. Good 9stroke win this weekend in the Amatuer ranks. :o :roll:

HUGE Thanks to John Ritger for the hole descriptions for the 2nd USDGC Qualifier at Perkerson Park this SUNDAY JUNE 14th

Hole 3 - 700'; plays like 600’ - Par 4
Tee to basket straight ahead, across park road 30’ in front of creek. In the park road is OB. Sidewalk & beyond are OB to the right. In the ditch behind pin is OB. Concrete spillway above and to the right of the pin is NOT OB.
Next tee - turn left to tee #4 @ small dirt spot

Hole 4 - 230'; plays like 230’ - Par 3
Tee to basket straight ahead. Ditch and beyond are OB on right; pavement and beyond are OB 35’ behind pin. Next tee – cross creek and follow back to the right 200’ to tee #5

Hole 5 - 513'; plays like 618’ - Par 4
Tee to basket at top of hill to the right, on same side of road. Road and beyond are OB on left. There is a property line on the right; marked by fence and fence posts – fence posts are the OB line. Next tee - turn left, walk down hill toward bathroom to tee #6

Hole 11 - 625'; plays like 565’ - Par 4. Standard/middle position.
Blind tee to basket straight ahead and way down the hill. You want to get past the large oak tree and as far down the hill as possible off the tee. Pavement and beyond are OB on the left; tennis courts are OB. Next tee – Down hill straight ahead to tee #12

Hole 12 - 430'; plays like 370’ - Par 3. Standard/middle position

Tee straight ahead to basket on peninsula under large oak tree; pin is blind from tee. Primary route is to the right of the trees; although there is a route to the left. The ditch and beyond play OB the entire length of this hole & are roped. Sidewalk that crosses fairway is casual.

Hole 18 - 230'; plays like 190’ - Par 3. Right position.
Tee straight ahead to basket to the right at the bottom of hill. Double Mando in effect! To make the mando, disc must cross between the two marked trees that frame the sewer grate and land safely in bounds before you can drop anywhere but the drop zone. All land prior to the mando is in bounds, so you can lay up. Drop zone is flagged before the double mando. You have not made the mando yet – so if you throw into the creek, you must re-throw from the Drop Zone for the mando. Once you are safely in bounds passed the mando, standard OB rules apply for the creek.

Congratulations to Tim Ellis

I really enjoyed watching the morning round at Central, the level of competition was intense on a challenging layout. Tim Ellis deserves to be our USDGC representative shooting a 58 in the AM and a blistering 54 in the PM.

Despite all the hoo-haw posted at the top of this thread about locations, dates, courses, etc., Keith put together a great process for selecting our best rep. Thanks!
