I just wanted to see how long it would take to get a response out of you Doug. Quicker than I expected, you lurker you. :lol:

But yeah, you guys are old and slow, so you should be required to play the shorts. :lol: :wink: :lol:

I don't think it's about all longs. Balance. We will have plenty of long shots at WL and Credit. That being said if you go all long for all 3 courses..no problem here.

If the longs provide the best course, that what will be played. I think there are a few holes out there that will have the same scoring spread in the mediums or longs, or in some cases, shorts.

Personally, Im a fan of what I played before. Not real big on switching layouts around and using different set-ups than the year before, unless its a broken hole. Thats my personal opinion though, and doesnt mean it will be that way for the event.

I don't find C2 in the longs insanely more challenging than it is in the shorts. There are only a few holes where it makes a significant difference.

Just confirmed Little Wing DGC will be coming onboard as a sponsor!*

Expect some Little Wing/Rumble support items to start showing up in the next month or so, and making an appearance in the player packages!


*- Little Wing Disc Golf Club is not in the habit of sponsoring events. As a member and friend of the guys I was given some support help from them for the Am side of fundraising for The Rumble. I am thankful to have them onboard.

C2- in the longs is only a few strokes more difficult than with a mixed layout. the course no matter the layout still has several duecable holes and requires control off the tee and good approach to play well. I say 75-80% longs there and give up a few longs for the better flowing and playing pins.

Credit- all longs is boring.... IMO i would mark out a few Island greens for some of the shorts, add mandos and play a mixed round there. Most of the holes in the long require the same shots and play as 4's or 5's. I agree that some of them should be in the long, 5, 9, 14, 15 for sure but mix it up on others.

West lake- SUCK..... MPO FPO MPM MA1 longs, every one else shorts. Speed and flow.... The course is tough no matter the teepads and if you arent shooting well there then you will be suffering regardless. One of the best/toughest courses around.

Obviously Chase and the others involved with the setup will give the best layouts and best challenge and show off our courses in the best way possible. I have no doubts and cant wait for this one.

Just my two cents...

CII - Pins were fine last year. It was a par 62 course with hole 4 being a par 5. I'd keep the same layout, but that is me.

Credit - I agree with those that thought the longs there were boring. It just wasn't a fun round, for me anyway. It was a par 63 course with hole 9 being a par 5. If we're going to have "off the fairway" as OB I think it should be shortened up a lot. I'm not a fan of throwing my QMS off the tee all day just to keep it in the fairway...

West Lake - This course eats me for lunch... Par 89 in the longs. 6 hour rounds. I hear ya Doug, but I'll be 60 next year and I just don't have the stamina anymore. I'd prefer to play the shorts but will play whatever.

Good thoughts on C2 everyone. I think the question is, what is a good par?

Par 62 option
1c, 2b, 3b(r),4c,5c,6c,7c (new),8c,9c,10b,11b,12c,13c (maybe the mound),14b,15c,16c (new),17c,18b

Par 61 option
1c, 2b, 3b(r),4c,5c,6b,7c (new),8c,9c,10b,11b,12c,13c (maybe the mound),14b,15c,16c (new),17c,18b

Par 60 option
1c, 2b, 3b(r),4c,5c,6b,7c (new),8c,9c,10b,11b,12c,13c (maybe the mound),14b,15c,16c (new),17b,18b

The new pins will only be used if they're 100% ready.

I personally like a Par 60 and find the needles to be rather large.
PS. If you take a 6 on 4c, it's the same as a 4 on 4a (which happens a lot)

Credit - Was designed to be blended (MDR may believe otherwise), but I prefer a balanced 18 hole course every time.
Par 62 - (I like this layout at Credit)
1b,2b(L),3b,4c,5b (current),6c,7b(R),8b,9b,10b,11b (L),12c,13b,14c,15c,16a,17c,18c

Would love 18 at West Lake.
