I had fun playing with a lot of Iowa golfers, whose company I thoroughly enjoy and seeing a lot of familiar friendly faces...
Congrats on the win on Sunday, Du-West-sac...! I always enjoy golfing with Duden
On another note, I understand there are growing pains with running events and there is trial by fire, but let me say, I was pretty disappointed with how both events were run this weekend. To set the tone for the weekend, when I ask the TD if there's water on the course for drinking, because its July in the Midwest, and he tells me to drink the pond water? ARE YOU KIDDING ME????!!!!!! This isn't my first rodeo, I was plenty prepared for myself, but that doesn't mean everyone was. This could have been better planned or maybe the TD could ask for a little help. I would've been more than happy to bring 5-6 huge water jugs from the KCFDC for the weekend, had I known there would be NOTHING!!!
I very much appreciate seeing that this was seen as an issue and having water for golfers on Sunday.
Also, 2 hours between rounds at events that are 2/3rds full, with courses, 4 mins from each other? Prolonging people sitting out in this heat for no reason whatsoever, That could have been done without. It takes a little more help to play AND run an event and not getting people off the course at 7:30 PM
Also, Paying half the field, Is that gonna be a common trend in DSM moving forward??
To finish, Being reprimanded for"Possibly" being seen smoking on the course and reported to the "TD", I sure hope it wasn't one of the people I saw smoking an eff'n bowl in their car before the second round!!!!
I've played 90+ events in 10 years in the State of Iowa and have had a lot of great times and memories. I truly hope this isn't foreshadowing of whats to come for Des Moines Iowa area golf...!
I don't "Owe You" like 2 vowels...
A million here, a million there...
