You have to hand it to Blackmoor for allowing 100+ golfers on their course on Wednesday. Had it not been for the World Am…Blackmoor would have never allowed a golfer on the golf course. The grass in the fairways was as high as the grass in the rough. The 18th fairway was in such bad shape, you could possibly lose a shoe walking across it. Other fairways were almost as bad. Balls were lost in the fairway and balls not for our group were found in the fairway. Greens were nice. Many tee boxes a muddy mess. A shame, an otherwise really good course that 100+ people were on and to best of my knowledge players playing to 6-8 handicap range could only post 5 scores in the 70s. Yet GHIN elects to not do anything for PCC adjustment.September 6, 2022 at 8:38 pm #51556Darrell MattinglyParticipant
I feel your pain I was in flight 47 70-79 year olds and played Blackmoor Thursday was still the same way played it at 5900 yards our group could only reach two par four’s in regulation the pro actually told us when you’re ball plugs in the fairway and you can’t find it and everyone in your group agrees it was in the fairway you could drop a ball no penalty that is pretty sad commentary when they know that and still have to make you playSeptember 8, 2022 at 12:26 pm #51557Brian MacFawnParticipant
Hi Darrell from Kentucky…Brian from Texas here. We rode together at World Tour and had a good day. Both your and Richard’s comments on Blackmore are right on. I had the opportunity to talk to the GM/head pro after the round because a guy in our group left at the turn and mistakenly took my official scorecard with him. Got it straightened out but I told the GM/head pro that his course was, in my opinion, unplayable and he agreed with me. Would say I hope to see you next year but after 21 years I won’t be back.September 8, 2022 at 3:22 pm #51558Bruce FriendParticipant
For those that played on courses that were “unplayable” due to mother nature and there wasn’t much that could have been done to improve things (and I too played on courses in that situation) and are upset to the point you are not coming back, what would you have liked as an alternative to playing? I wouldn’t want a rain check. I played in the slop and scored badly while others scored better. If the course is negligent not doing the best they could which again happened in my flight with Caledonia being cart path only but made us play the ball down, yes that is a problem with the course. But again, not enough to not play for the day and/or get a rain check. It was unfortunate that we had so much wet weather but still a very enjoyable week in my perspective.
I’m not criticizing just trying to understand the perspective in what you would like to have seen different.September 8, 2022 at 4:45 pm #51559Darrell MattinglyParticipant
Should have cancelled the courses that were unplayable and had a two day tournament instead of four no different than when it rained out the Tuesday round at Hackler that flight became a three round tournament it’s not rocket science the last time I looked up the word unplayable it means not to be played onSeptember 16, 2022 at 11:08 am #51563Bob NewmanParticipant
It is my understanding that if a score is posted the day you play it, GHIN automatically adjust said round to what the field played it that day. I sometimes do not post the same day but adjust the date and I get a “pop up” statement that I need to post the same day to get the adjusted.
