I will always go for tee times. First and foremost it makes it feel like a tournament and not an outing. Even if the host course does not treat it as a tournament(it has just become a money maker for them.) I was disappointed with 2 of my courses this year and the way they treated us. Had no idea of how to correct run a tournament, not did they deserve to host one. I do think that the staff need to put stopwatches in the gift bag as no one understands how fast 3 minutes goes by looking for a ball. My group waited at least 7 minutes on the group in front of us on the 18th hole at Meadowlands. I have enjoyed this tournament since 2005, but this may be my last.
