Playing it in a tourney is kind of like just taking a snapshot of a sundae. It looks good, but you can't eat a picture, so it kinda leaves a bad taste in your mouth. It's understandable that Philips didn't like it, you're not the first one to criticize the Oakland Front course, it's been getting that since the advent of CE plastic.
I don't plan on moving to Columbia so a tourney setting is all I get ..... a shitty tasting Sundae
I'll back up a bit ..... I'm not trying to discourage anyone from going; I've only heard great things about the EVENT as a whole.
With that said I still will not be going (if it were 2 rounds of IH and 2 of the Back course than I might think about it).
When I book a weekend long DG trip I want it to be for a solid event on solid courses. I've done the mini golf, kegs, dubs, and party thing ...... its not what I look for in an event anymore ....... some do and more power to you, I hold nothing against that ...... I go for solid golf with solid competition at a solid event.
