Are we playing each course once? Schroeder only has one set of tees, Kircher has two, Bluebird is supposed to have two but some are lost and Watson is the same.

What order will they be played?

Turn in cards after each round?

Each course twice, from the regular tees, except for Schroeder, where you will play both tees.

Order is as stated in the flyer- Watson>Kircher>Blue Bird>Schroeder

Turn cards in once you get to the next course.

Why is there a $2 per man charge for each course? The payout for pros is already bad enough in our club events. Is that the goal to drive away pros? Thats whats gonna happen with only $9 goin back into the actual payout!

I got back in town last night from being on vacation. I see there are some concerns to payout from the pros for this event. The costs for each event are broken down so you know how and where the entry fees get distributed. Our club reinvests in the courses we play. It is what we do.

The way to increase payout is through sponsorships. Each of us can ask our employers or promote our own businesses at our tournaments. $50 or $100 tournament sponsors can be advertised on a tee sign or in the caddy book. Merchandise sponsorships can be offered for resale at the payout table.
There are enough members (newbies and veterans) that our circle of influence is larger than ever before. 'Added Cash' makes the event more appealing for pros and ams alike.

The recruiting for advertisers is a job in and of itself and until we get a volunteer to help with this, the 'added cash' for our tournaments is minimal.

The other way to increase payout is to raise the price to $25 or more which is something I am opposed to do. In fact I want the entry fee for local events to go in the other direction and offer side bets instead. A lower entry fee allows more people to play and creates more excitement. It's also better for advertisers since they are getting in front of a larger group.

The opportunity to cash out at this event is fairly high. 9 hole courses are typically shorter and with 2 rounds on 4 courses, the ace runs are plentiful. The RCF Ace Pool is $500; add the $10 buy in for 8, 50/50 CTPs (that you get 2 shots at) even the novice players can go home with money in their pocket. On top of that, this is a Ryder Cup Qualifier so you earn points for everyone you beat or tie.

You will be glad you came out to play. This is a fun tournament on 4 courses that are rarely used for RCF events.

Joe Jaegers and I went to play the 9 hole courses yesterday to make notes of time to allow for each course; travel time between courses; where to grab lunch; and condition of each course.
Below is a list of needed improvements for each course (this is not a complete list).

The tee pads for Watson Trail need improvement with mulch on pad 2, repositioning of the blocks on pads 3 & 5, clearing of rocks on pad 4, and better markings on pads 6 & 9. BTW, only pads by tee signs will be used. Hole 3 tee pad is dangerous from incoming shots to 2’s basket. Hole 2's basket should be relocated to the right of current position. With a bit of work and some design changes, this course could be a lot of fun.

The tee pads at Kircher need improvement with mulch on all 18 tee pads and either reposition or clear the rear of tee pad on 3 white. Kircher is in great shape otherwise and the whole park has been mowed. Both red and white tees will be used. We may use flags to mark alternate tee pads. This 9 hole design is excellent.

The tee pads at Blue Bird need better markings and mulch on all 9 pads. Tee pads for wooded holes need to be better defined. The fairway on holes 1, 4 & 9 could be trimmed to create a ‘fairway’. BTW, only pads by tee signs will be used. Blue Bird fairways for the open holes have been mowed and course is in great shape. Baskets however should be replaced or refurbished. The mowed fairways add class to this course.

The tee pads at Schroeder are concrete and course is in good shape. This is the most dangerous course of all and Mandos with drop zones will be used for the tournament. Hole 1’s basket allows shots into 6’s fairway, hole 2’s basket is too close to 5 tee, hole 6 fairway crosses 1’s basket, and the walking path from 8’s basket to 9’s tee crosses 6’s green. This course desperately needs to be redesigned for safety reasons. (6’s basket should be relocated short and to the left of current position.) This course has a lot of potential.

This is a rough guesstimate of the flow and timeline for the day,

Registration is 6a to 7a - Player's meeting at 7:30
Tee off at Watson Trail is 8:00a – 2 hrs for 18 holes
Drive to commuter lot, 6 miles at hwy 44 and 141 – 30 minutes (to get in carpools)
Drive to Kircher, 9 miles – 20 minutes
Tee off at Kircher approx 11:00 – 2hrs for 18 holes
Drive to Blue Bird, 11 miles with stop at Chipolte for lunch – 45 minutes to 1 hour
Tee off at Blue Bird approx 2:00 – 3 hrs for 18 holes
Drive to Schroeder, 5 miles – 20 minutes
Tee off at Schroeder approx 5:30 – 2.5 hrs for 18 holes
Finish at 8:00p – prize out and party
Drive back to commuter lot at hwy 44 and 141, 5 miles - 15 minutes

There will be casuals on the courses. Please be courteous and ask to play through. We have not closed any course. Please carpool to save on gas and limited parking spaces.

These are the tentative 50/50 CTP holes for each course.

Watson Trail – Holes 8 and 9
Kircher – Holes 1 and 9
Blue Bird – Holes 8 and 9
Schroeder – Holes 1 and 9

This is a $10 buy in (side bet) for all 4 courses and each CTP is worth $1. That is, if 30 people buy in then each CTP is worth $30. You can also just buy in for 1 course or more courses for $3 each.
