Is anyone interested in playing in the non competitive flight?May 22, 2017 at 3:29 pm #38484Aaron EllisParticipant
It’s not for me, I like the competition, if I had friends just wanting to go down and compete amongst ourselves I wouldMay 22, 2017 at 10:40 pm #38485Steve HartmannParticipant
Aaron,I like the idea of 4 hour rounds instead of 6 plus hour rounds. I still might go competitive tho.May 23, 2017 at 8:30 am #38487Dave KOHLERSpectator
Steve , After what I have experienced in the past 6 years , YES as of now I am planning on playing in it. IF I play at all.May 23, 2017 at 2:29 pm #38493Rick KimbrellParticipant
Even in a non-competitive round in Myrtle Beach…I don’t think you can expect a 4 hour round.
I personally would have no interest in a non-competitive flight. I enjoy the competition too much. And, I am there to play golf and while I don’t like 6 hour rounds, I am on vacation, playing golf, competing…so I still will have a good time.
Of course…this is just my opinion. I respect others and their opinions.

I agree with you Rick. Question is the non- competitive flt going to have high handicappers and low handicappers playing together, also will the low handicappers try and take advantage of high handicappers in skins games???May 25, 2017 at 11:40 am #38501Aaron EllisParticipant
I am with Rick, you may get lucky and get in a 4 hour round but I wouldn’t count on it, probably closer to 4.5 hours, unless people are playing thru or something, cause you will have a few groups who are playing with each other by their own set of rules and having fun trying to win a few dollars off each other, then you will have others playing speed golf that aren’t pulling the flag, just free wheeling it and trying to fly around the course! I’d rather seen some sort of bare minimum rules or something for the flight and that would probably entice a few others to play, like not reteeing for white stakes, rolling the ball within a club length and a few other relaxed rules to speed up play. But I have rarely had a round go 6 hours the past 3 years I have played!
