Pace of play will always be an issue without knowledgeable people monitoring the course. You may see a ranger come by and ask you to speed up but I have never seen anyone ride with a group and even try to time them and you almost have to go to get some one from USGA to explain proper way to “time”. With 96 people on course and shotgun start, it is just about impossible to work out a useable time to par chart. I have asked for years to at least get the pro to continuously read de the course and monitor play but that will not happen. I’ve learned to live with it and accept it will be long rounds. And I definitely think the flag issue is a slow down and I will not continues putt, have missed too many short one doing uis.
