  I live in Alabama and my group has been talking about playing all the RTJ courses on the trail.  Are there any courses that you loved or hated?  We're planning out the trip now and want to make sure we hit the high points and skip any that aren't worth the trip.
  For a regular day,  I usually carry 2 sleeves of Zstars and have a collection of 3-6 older ones.  When playing a scramble, I carry at least a dozen.  I tend to donate quite a few balls with shots I would never take if we didn't already have a safe one.
This may be off base because I'm not sure of the exact details of caddie contracts.  My understanding is that the caddies are independent contractors that work for the player.  The problem with your analogy is that the caddies aren't employed by the tour as independent contractors.  So in this case, you have the PGA forcing someone they have no contractual relationship with to wear a uniform for the sole reason of profit to the PGA. Players aren't forced to wear tournament...
Correct, there are no fences or nets.  The road in question is normally not busy, but road construction has routed a lot more traffic that way.  I've only seen one other drive bad and long enough to get near the road.
  While playing a couple of weeks ago, my group hit a situation that we didn't know how to play according to the rules.  The hole in question is bordered on the left by a road that is OB.  I pulled my drive left and it was sitting in bounds right at the edge of the road.  To hit my shot I needed to stand in the road.  The speed limit on the road is 40 mph and it was a busy Saturday morning.  I took a drop to keep from getting hit by a car.  I understand you don't get...
If you follow the recommended method from Golfshot and click the red lock instead of locking the phone, the GPS will stay active but the screen will turn off. If you lock the phone using the lock button on top, it will disable GPS requiring a bit longer to narrow down your location when you unlock the phone.
You will definitely want to call the courses you play.  My brother-in-law restored an old cart with hopes of saving like you.  Unfortunately, he found out that most of the courses here in north Alabama charge "trail fees" for using your own cart that make the savings per round minimal at best.
City Club in Marietta,GA has a similar setup.  Each cart had a GPS screen that showed your location and the carts in front of and behind you.  The screen would also display a message telling you that you were behind pace.  It's a great tool if you're courteous and care about keeping pace.  Unfortunately, the guys we were paired with hit so many balls in the woods that it was impossible for them to keep pace.  I think it would be a good tool for the clubhouse to monitor...
I played in an outting on Memorial day weekend with 15 other guys.  The most popular format seemed to be two man scramble match play.  We also played shambles which are a lot of fun if the course is real tight off the tee or you have players that really spray it.
