I have played in this event in 17 of the past 18 years. My top reasons for playing are the quality of the courses, fair competition and the 19th hole even though I’m not much of a drinker.
One of the most exciting days of the year is “course assignment day,” am I not right? We all look forward to 1 or 2 premier courses and 2-2nd tier courses, but no one appreciates a course in poor condition. The folks running the event are aware of all our issues re: course conditions. They are good people trying their best to put on a great event.
One year I won my flight on the 4th day playing Crown Park. While most of the field griped about that course, I played a practice round the week leading up to the WA and relished every shot on that final day day. There was grass on the fairways and greens, 18 holes and to this day it is a fond memory. I will keep playing as long as it is a good value. Look forward to seeing you all!
