GSSS Bonus Event Oct 15-16th, 2011 C-Tier

Postby keith johnson » Sun Jul 03, 2011 11:00 pm

Registration is closed - if you have not signed up online or have already spoken to me - DO NOT SHOW UP SAT morning wanting to play. You will be turned away.

A Bonus GSSevenS Event will be taking place on OCT 15th and 16th, 2011

FORMAT CHANGE!! - SAT 2 rounds in 3 somes on SAT and 1 round on SUN.
As of now, since there is going to be less than 54 players, I will go ahead and change the format to 2 rounds of 3somes on SAT and 1 round on Sunday (NO FINAL 9)allowing everyone to be on the road by 2-3 pm at the latest after awards.


Event HQ will be at the Chicken Shack - I will have banners and signs set up at the turn so people will know to go there, as the main parking lot will be only for Zipline people as they have a full schedule this weekend with the leaves changing - as well as it's a long way from Event Central.

I'm pretty pumped for this one, just got out to the course today (haven't been out there since April and May) and its breaking in nicely. Everything about the course screams professionalism and tournament caliber. This could easily be one of the top dg complexes in the southeast before too long...and with the first PDGA event only 6 months after first opening, I'd say it's well on its way!

Keep checking top post for Event updates.

I hope to see everyone excited to play an Event here with the ability to kick back and relax after you golf day is done.
With only 1 round and then 9 holes with tee times after lunch each day - nobody should be too worn out to enjoy their surroundings!

No - everyone will play 3 total rounds of 18 - PRO/ADV will play 1-9 on SAT and 10-18 on SUN with All other divisions playing 10-18 on SAT and 1-9 on SUN.

If weather issues change dramatically from 1 day to the next, I'll note it in the TD report, so ratings will be accurate.

You mean me or Woody? :mrgreen:

The statement you quoted is referring to the players relaxing similar to Lake Russell where they can just head back to the campsites or Cabins(at LR)/Teepees(at NGCT) to chill and watch the sunset.

The park is probably very relaxing, butI have never seen you in relaxation mode Keith, so I guess all the players will be responsible for doing that. :wink:

Which is why I said I WOULD BE looking forward to seeing everyone excited to play and then kick back and relax - and didn't say I would be relaxing and kicking back. :mrgreen:
Although with staying overnight in a teepee and only playing 27 holes (the last 9 with tee times) each day - it will not be the hectic jam everything into 1 day 2rounds GSSS Event. :lol:

It is also not in a park - it is 300 acres of private property, with a par 61 Disc Golf Course (which has room for expansion) built onto it. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

There are only 7 camping spots left for FRI the 15th and 13 left for SAT the 16th, and the TeePees are all taken for both days.

If you wish to be able to camp there you need to book your campsite before they are gone.

Remember you can also order breakfast to be waiting for you SAT, SUN or both mornings when you check-in for camping.

Please help make this Event as popular as the other 6 GSSS Events and signup when you can here: http://www.pdgasignup.com/Qstore/Qstore ... 1304013939

Registration closes online on OCT 7th, so please don't get left out!

With a little over 4 weeks to go - only 20 some people have signed up/said they were going to in the next few days.

I have not promoted the Event as heavily as usual, so I am hoping that players will sign up soon.

The owners are offering an Adventure Tour for one of the players that will be one of the 50/50 raffle prizes.

The place will be groomed and the leaves should be changing colors making for some outstanding views, so please sign up and join us for a great time in the fall.

I would love to play this tournament, and had planned to, for quite a while, but it's just not going to work out this year. I've already done 3 2-day tournys this year and have PPIC on the horizon. I also need to go camping soon with the family when I'm NOT mostly away playing DG.

Where are all the PRO players and ADV players that are always begging for a course with par 4's and 5's that has open bombing holes and fair fairways in the woods?

NGCT is a par 61 with 5 par 4's and a legit par 5 that offers all the golf you have been looking for without having to kill you with 2 rounds in one day.

On SAT all players will play 18 holes, then we will break for lunch and after lunch PRO / ADV players will tee off starting on hole 1 with tee times stopping after HOLE 9 - with all other divisions teeing off on hole 10 stopping on Hole 18 with tee times.

On SUN all players will play 18 holes, then we will break for lunch and after lunch PRO / ADV players will tee off starting on hole 10 finishing on HOLE 18 with tee times - with all other divisions teeing off on hole 1 finishing on HOLE 9 with tee times.

Every competitor will play 3 rounds total, but will have the time to enjoy the fall foliage scenery and to recharge the batteries (the better you play obviously gives you more time to enjoy) :mrgreen:

I look forward to seeing everyone there in 16 days!

OK - here is a deal for Dollar and any other PRO OPEN players (which the long tees are designed for) - I'll move into Open, and I'll make 1st place $250 minimum - and for every multiple of 5 players, add $50 to 1st place - so if there are 5 players it will be $300 for 1st, for 10 players it would be $350 for 1st, etc.

It could be the easier money you ever made - if you could beat a 903 rated, and 953 rated player over 54 holes. :mrgreen:

There are a few lunch options for this weekend.
There is a deli / diner that can deliver lunch if ordered in the morning, as well as a Subway and other options a few miles away in Lula.

As of now, since there is going to be less than 54 players, I will go ahead and change the format to 2 rounds of 3somes on SAT and 1 round on Sunday (NO FINAL 9)allowing everyone to be on the road by 2-3 pm at the latest after awards.

So if you were waffling because of thinking it would be a long day on SUNDAY, now is the opportunity to changeyour mind. :mrgreen:

Just got everything worked out to participate and then discovered that it was a two day event. Would love to play but can't take two days from my kids...especially when I only get to see them every other weekend. Y'all have fun.

Definitely looking forward to the 2012 GSSS. It's been a fun year. If 2012 Lake Russell falls on a weekend with the kids, I'll have to bring the whole family up for a weekend getaway. Thanks again Keith for all the time you put into this series.

Lake Russell is the only one that NEVER changes dates - it has always been the weekend AFTER Labor Day since long before I moved here and started running it - next year will be the 5th year as part of the GSSS and the 14th Annual Lake Russell Open

With over 5 players in Pro Open 1st place is now guaranteed $300 - will others step up to raise it to $350?

31 hours left to signup. Signup here: http://www.pdgasignup.com/Qstore/Qstore ... 1304013939

New players just added and current registration here: http://www.pdga.com/tournament_results/69493

Still several others saying they may be coming, so lets see what happens.

Let's see if we can make this a reverse Lake Russell or Crucible signup Event and have the last 49 spots sell in last 31 hours instead of the 49 spots selling in the first 31 (or less) hours! :mrgreen:

Surprise gift to the next 10 players to signup.

A response to my favorite Blairsvillian and nicest host in the state! :!:

Number 4,000 couldn't go to a better guy - and by the way, I had no idea I was even close to 4,000 on this version of the website - In reality on all 3 of the ADGO versions since I moved here, I'm probably closer to 5 or 6 thousand. :mrgreen:

Sorry you can't make it, but you'll have another chance in 2012 after Meeks Madness - as on the 17th of March 2012 GSSS'12 debuts it's final season.
No more running Feburary Events for me - mother nature just never cooperates with the FEB Events. :shock:

Best to the better half and your little one!

But as of now there are only 42 spots left!
5 hours to go!

I'll post all the final names on the PDGA site when I get the E-Mails later this evening after the Event closes.

Event HQ will be at the Chicken Shack - I will have banners and signs set up at the turn so people will know to go there, as the main parking lot will be only for Zipline people as they have a full schedule this weekend with the leaves changing - as well as it's a long way from Event Central.

I have put this in the top post also.

Final registered players list here: http://www.pdga.com/tournament_results/69493

We reached 10 pros as it is - so I'll put $350 for 1st as promised and I'll pay 5 of 8 that will remain - but myself and Aaron Saft will probably move out - myself to Masters (unless Jordy and Brett want to move into Open and make it a 12 person division paying 6 with $400 to 1st) and Aaron moving to Advanced per earlier decisions that were subject to change after the registration closed.

Proposed payouts for both scenarios below:

if paying 5 of 8 if paying 6 of 12 (all Masters move to Open)
350 $400
200 $250
125 $150
75 $100
60 $75
$60
810 paid out - $440 paid in $ 1,035 - paid out - 660 paid in

Reminder - PLEASE DO NOT SHOW UP if you are not on the registered players list! You will not get in.

See everyone SAT morning!

Yeah - Leigh Smith called at 9 this morning and is driving up with the Savannah guys - he originally was going to come, then couldn't make it, and now is able to - so he is good to go. - I'm leaving in a little bit will be up there this afternoon with spotty cellm service and no computer access.

More including thoughts and stats tomorrow or later in the week.

3rd overall score Mark - 3 1000 rated rounds - first time I've done that since I won the Halloween Event over 21 players last year in Vegas - It's also the first time a course I put lots of man hours into that I didn't finish out of the cash in years - thanks for the congrats!

Big thanks to Keith and family for their hard work. This course is AWESOME. It's easily the best new course in GA since Flyboy, and definitely one of the Top 5 in the state. One Event here per year would not be nearly enough!

If you have NOT played it, you ARE missing out! I will be back as often as possible.

see the thing about you guys is you want to get birdies on holes too. but you shouldn't be, therefore if you were to desgin a course you would make it so you could get a birdie on the hole. and that would be wrong because people like myself would never get a bogey and probably hardly ever get a 3. in ball golf do you get a 2 in every round you play. my guess is no so therefore you suck in someones eyes that plays that sport well. and no professional ball golfer is ever going to want you to design a course. no offense i mean theres alot of things i suck at. like life
