I don't think that those types of courses are in the spirit of the thread - I think the OP is talking about cheaper courses or local municipal courses, as opposed to quality courses. Sure, there's a course around here called Firekeeper, designed by Notah Begay, that is comparable in terms of price to the course you're talking about. It's 7500+ yards from the tips, and rated 77.1/137.

I tend to agree with the latter parts of this post. TPC Sawgrass is rated 76.8/155 from the Championship tees. One of my local courses is rated 70.7/125.

I would assume that to mean that a professional could just shoot at the flag, as opposed to having to think about what portion of the green the ball needs to land on. There's also probably a lot less trouble around most local greens (bunkers are...

About 75% of the NCAA revenue comes from television contract with CBS/Turner Broadcasting for the men's basketball tournament. A lot of that revenue is split up to all of the conferences involved in the tournament. I don't know for sure, but I think the venues during the tournament are bid on, and that the stadiums would collect at least some of the revenue from ticket sales.

i tried playing LCP here in EK since the pros in SFL play LCP and since the OP said playing LCP could help lower my HCP, after i played my LCP round, i had my playing partner sign my card, and he said i couldn't play LCP, and had to add penalties every time i did LCP.
