Last year we had several, though they all played Rec. This year I'm hoping there will be a wider variety for women and also juniors.

Feel free to e-mail or PM me, but please cc Garrett on that also so that he has a complete list of those who need transportation.
gvan wrote:As for layout, It's pretty close to what it was last year. I'll have hole descriptions to post later, but basically this:
Rec and jrs short 2 to regular 2 basket. Jrs 12 and under will have short tees on holes 6-8.
Int and above will play long 2 to Alt 2 basket.
Rec an Jrs play from the reds. Jrs 12 and under will have short tees on holes 16-18
Int and above play from the blues

12StonesScott wrote:I've never been able to completely wrap what passes for my brain around the whole ratings process, but from what I think I do understand, it looks like there would be only one propagator (me) for the Rec Men and Juniors (13 and over) and none for the younger kids, so there'd be no round ratings generated for those groups (assuming we don't get an influx of 800+ rated Rec Men) -- is my understanding correct on that?
There wouldn't be a temporary rating for sure, but they can usually work something out for final ratings. I was hoping that this wouldn't be an issue this year, but it looks like it might. If necessary, I can tweak Lenora like I did last year to ensure that Rec gets at least 1 rated round. Not ideal, but we can only work with what we have.

Speak for yourself -- I usually do play the reds at Alex, and am in every meaningful sense a Rec-level player (except perhaps for how long I've been playing without getting much better). Selfishly, I'd prefer to keep us on the reds simply because it might give me a chance to actually win a tournament for once in my life -- I'm competitive on shorter courses, but the greater the overall distance the worse I perform relative to the rest of the field, even in Rec. With this lingering knee pain I've had since the Forsyth County Open, I'm not even throwing as far as I usually do, but on a shorter layout I can still hang with a Rec field (ala Lost In The Woods, where I shot myself in the foot with a 7 on hole 7 in the first round and a 5 on 14 in the second -- bogey the first of those, and par the second one, and I'd have won by a stroke).
From a slightly more altruistic standpoint (though still somewhat selfish, since my son's one of those affected), moving Recs to the blue tees guarantees that no junior players will have rated rounds, since they will not be playing the same layout at the same time as any of the propagators in the field (may not happen anyway, unless we get some more 800+ rated players in Rec). On the other hand, it would mean that all of the Rec players would get rated, since they'd be playing the same layout at the same time as Int.
No offense to anyone in the Rec field (don't know any of you personally) but I've actually been thinking about moving to Int, since there are players in that division that I've played with before and whose company I enjoy during tournaments -- my primary motivations for staying in Rec have been to try to have at least a few propagators in the Rec field playing the same layout as the older juniors so that they get ratings, and to have a slightly better shot at placing high in the division. If Rec moves to playing the blues at Alex, both of those go away, and I might as well move to Int.

$Dollar$ wrote:Do rec players usually go out for casual rounds and create shorter holes to play at every course?
The first section of every hole consists of what is known as the teeing ground, or tee-box. There is usually more than one available box for a player to place their ball, each one a different distance from the hole. They are generally as level as feasible, and most are slightly raised from the surrounding fairway. The most common tee areas, in increasing order of length from the hole, are the ladies' tee, the men's tee, and the championship tee. Other common tee-boxes include the junior tee, closer to the hole than the ladies' tee, and the senior tee, generally between the ladies' tee and the men's tee. In tournaments, golfers generally tee off from the box one level further from the "normal" box for their class (men use the championship tee, ladies use the senior or men's tee, and juniors use the ladies' tee).

Bender wrote:Greetings everyone, I have a question. Both myself and my friend signed up for the tournament tomorrow for Rec division. After reading some of this information I am not sure whether we should stay there or move to intermediate. We started playing about 4 months ago. We've played about once a week since then, mostly at Alexander Park and East Roswell (hi trees). I'd say on average we can drive around 250ft and only throw epic failures about once every 10 throws at this point. Last week I managed to get a +7 at Alexander park from the blue tees, though admittedly that was probably one of my better games.
