Luke,

Fantastic question. During the August Board of Directors meeting I brought up that I thought the message board was becoming a little crowded. Discussion ensued to divide the course threads list into two categories: ADGO courses and Regional courses. A course really doesn't have to do anything to become an ADGO course rather than be in the Metro Atlanta area. We gave discussion to all the courses and came up with the current 13 that would encompass the ADGO courses. Currently the regional courses are still listed but eventually they will be hidden only to appear when you click on the Regional Course thread. Or they just be listed as small subforums...haven't decided yet.

Paulding County is Metro atl? It just seems to me to be a forced classification.

FYI, Jasper, Carrol, Walton, and Barrow, are a Metro Atlanta Counties so another form of discrimination will be needed.

I think it needs to be more like a 30 mile radius from central Atlanta. I don't see how Deerlick and White Oak are Metro, but Flyboy isn't. What's the criteria?
Fart, it's never not funny!

A 2006 survey by the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce counted 140 cities and towns in the 28-county Metropolitan Statistical Area in mid-2005. Then add Johns Creek, Milton, Chattahoochee Hills, and Dunwoody because they had not been incorporated at at that time.

I believe early testing concluded you do not have enough metro-Atlanta ticks & chiggers at your course. In fact, they were not able to dissern if the ticks & chiggers at the Monty are even legally in this state.
Metro-Atlanta Ticks & Chiggers Unions #404 & 770 had a huge demonstration last weekend in downtown Atlanta (didn't you see the news coverage?!?). Until the Monty's ticks & chiggers join their union, they cannot be displayed as a Metro course. :roll:
