The only thing that really comes to mind for me that it's a guaranteed formula for slow play. Both for playing two shots for every stroke that counts, then chasing down all errant balls. That's a lot of wasted time.

I was worried about slow play also but fortunately I am in the first group going off as a twosome- I am coaching soccer at 4 pm, so we broke our group apart and made arrangements to head out before the 10 am time.

Why are you asking us? How the **** should we know what your tournament is going to be like?
And no, I've never played in one of those, nor would I. I've played some "worst-shot" rounds by myself, as practice, but that's about it.
Before starting a thread on this, I had done a search, but didn't see this thread that you moved my post to until today as I was not subscribed to this thread.
They knew the format today- 2 shots on every swing until you hole out. I like most of the guys at the club (both players and staff), but our season only runs from June-Sept and many of the staff know a lot more about skiing than golf. My season pass was only $359 (plus $50 to join league and $15 per comp to fund prizes). I have gotten at least $600 in shop credit this year, so I am not complaining.
Yesterday they had to cancel a tournament because of snow. You can see part of the 5th and 6th holes in this photo
The problem with postponing stuff because of weather is that there is no time to make it up as the season ends Sunday.
