    Heaven help anyone who gets Barefoot Norman. I had a 6.5 hour round and they said in the clubhouse afterwards “We don’t send rangers/marshals out to speed up play”
    Probably shouldn’t put women with 18-40 handicaps on this course with a buttload of bunkers and forced carries. This coming from a GIRL, who is a 23 handicap, keeping it real. It slows it down, most girls don’t work on their bunker games and freak over forced carries. That being said Scott, I will play Caledonia ALL DAY LONG and take my medicine and my penalty stroke on 18. That course is BEAUTIFUL!!!

    Pace of play has to be addressed. NUMBER ONE!!! With this size of tournament I don’t think World Am had the ability to enforce pace of play penalties. They would have to have their own rules staff out on each course. I don’t think World Am has the means to have volunteers to come out and act as spotters on holes with blind shots to help locate balls. Doubt they can send their own rangers without stepping on toes at courses. Do we need smaller flights with tighter handicap ranges? My flight had like 16.4 to 40 I think. I know higher handicap players learn from playing with better players. But is the time for this during a tournament? I know this slowed my flight down. I’m not setting the world on fire with my game but I try to be competitive witin my handicap and love tournament golf. Do we offer gross divisions broken out by handicap ranges like 18.2 to 21.4 for women like at tournaments I play? Maybe this could be a new tournament offering Scott? Gross broken out by handicap. No faking your game.
    Shotgun allows everyone to play under the same weather conditions but does cause crowding on the range.

    John I agree. I had zero beach time. Spent money on an oceanfront hotel and didn’t get to really use it. I felt so bad for the groups we were holding up and the glares I got. The group in front of us was long gone. At least with shotgun everybody has the same course conditions. I know people have bad holes but I thought the max 9 was to help the pace of play. Granted if the group is making eights it does slow down. I try to keep it moving even when I’m struggling.

    My concern was a lack of a ranger monitoring pace of play at Barefoot Norman. My tee time was 9:34. I took a photo of the cart gps starting 18. Pace behind 136 minutes elapsed time 6:19. My cart partner and I had a a contentious start with the other two from the get go. Rules fights and so forth no help looking for balls. Repeatedly told them we were behind. They would not make an effort to speed up. Wouldn’t hit until the drink cart girl was completely gone. I had to cancel a phone business meeting at 3:45 because I thought I would be done with golf by then. Was in 2nd place after 1st round but just lost it after this fiasco. Granted I need to work on the mental side of the game dealing with this part but this was extreme. My state tournaments don’t tolerate this. You get slapped with penalty strokes. Asked in the clubhouse why no rangers, the said World Am doesn’t like to monitor pace of play. I call BS.
    Huge shout out to Farmstead. They kept pace of play in check, let us know if weather was coming in and what to do if horn sounded.

    DANG!!!! So potentially you could get a false positive test before you leave. Then potential non compliant people on the plane who end up getting duct taped to their seat. Man that is some stress. Then stress trying to get back. Hope you have a calm trip.

    Alex, didn’t know the Pearl only closed 9. That is a unique run of holes without a par 4.

    I was kind of bummed the Pearl merged the two 18’s into one. Also, when I started playing many many years ago I remembered a course called Angel’s Trace. Waterway Hills just because as a kid coming to the beach with my parents, long before I took up golf, thought the tram thing was cool. Course.. ehh it was ok.
