This was the leagues first trip outside of Watson Trail. We played the new course in Bridgeton, Carrollton Park DGC (aka Suburbia
Overall, it was a good idea and a good experience. I think the course may have been a bit brutal on some of the players and an oversight on my part actually led to a couple of players getting left hanging and a few DNF's. David Meyr (and the new player you brought with you), I am sorry that I forgot to post that we would be meeting by holes 18 and 15 and you guys waited patiently over by 1 for a long time. I did try calling the phone number I have for you (which was apparently wrong) and I sent the info on parking by email, but forgot to put it in the forums. I made the assumption that more people read their email than come to the forums. My fault - we'll catch you next time I hope.
Regardless, it was encouraging that we had 8 players brave the heatwave to try something new. We ran all the way up to 8:45pm and still had light left to spare.
We were going to originally put the CTP on hole 17, but changed it to hole 12 after we started playing.
Here's the breakdown:
6 players (because of the two that got overlooked)
The league balance was $108.22
Fees paid of $30
$18 towards payouts
$6 towards prizes and expenses
$6 towards the party
New league balance: Prizes and Expenses = $31.22 / Party = $89 Total = $120.22
After the scores were totaled, we ended in 4 actual divisions: Advanced, Moderate, New and DNF(did not finish). I'm dividing the payout money from the DNF's into the other 3 divisions.AdvanceName, Score, Place, Payout
Matt Grogan, 69, 1st, $6ModerateName, Score, Place, Payout
Daniel Doss, 80, 1st, $6NewName, Score, Place, Payout
Stephen Schulte, 69, 1st, $6DNF
No Aces were hit... but it was close on hole 6, really close.
Stephen snagged the CTP on hole 12 with a nice clean Buzzz shot that could have been an ace run - if it weren't for that last little tree in front of the basket. He walked off with a custom supercolor Buzzz from the 2012 St. Louis Open.
Thanks again everyone, we'll be back at Watson Trail to recover next week for Game 15. If we get at least 8 players, we'll make it a random-draw doubles night.
