Personally, Eastern from the Longs is not much fun unless MDR or Ken Jarvis are your doubles partners...however, if you can only throw 300 ft....it might be fun. I would put the players on cement wherever possible.


Finally, some validation.

Take the blinders off KC, I'm trying to help here. You guys want a successful tourney here, right? Like Tanner said, people (including me) won't complain about WL becuase it's awesome, and because it's temporary, soon to be permanent. Eastern is flat, long, and boring, whether you want to admit that or not, it is what it is.

Making it longer, and not using what tees are there, is only going to aggravate the field, not make the tournament "better".

It really doesn't matter on the tee pads. The only real problem is if it's half concrete and natural. You then can't wear shoes that accomodate both. I went to the 99 worlds in Rochester and 3 of the 4 courses didn't have concrete.
At the Cross Canyon Challenge in Florida they have 10'x 15' carpet strips.
None of the big pros complained down there.
Natural tees (grass) most of the time are fine. Occasionally you will have to move the tees just because of traffic.
Just make the best course you can and please as many as you can. "The needs of the many, outweigh the needs of the few or the one". How about that one Mikey. Easy movie quote.

Standards/expectations have changed quite a bit since then.

What about an A tier I attended in Wisconsin last year that didn't have concrete tees?

yes, we have 4 pages of your "I hate natural teepads".

I'm just pointing out...it's not that big of a deal.

it was pretty permanent. There were like 3 temp holes or something like that.


...I'm fairly sure they are going to put in concrete before next year though.

I don't think expectations have been raised. Natural tees are just another excuse for playing poorly. It's not my fault, I heard a noise off in the distance when I threw and slipped on the not-to-my-specifications tee pad.
Do you require a certain size concrete tee pad also? Some concrete tee pads are a waste if you have to step up on them or they are 2'x 6' or cracked. Margo in Des Moines used to have a couple of tee pads that were 4'x16' (small jets were also using them). Play what's given and be thankful we have courses to play at all.
