Somehow I get the feeling that we are stirring up a competitive round between two packs? LOL
@Golfingdad, I like your description of MSq. Courses with fewer chances to lose balls and more chances to recover from bad tee shots are definitely up my alley!
I did a google earth walk through since I've never been there, looks like a fun layout with a bunch of spots with a fun decision on the tee (at least for us amateurs without scratch accuracy!), where a long iron or hybrid's a reasonable play distance wise and gives you a big landing zone but if you're feeling good with the big stick you could get it really close but into a tighter landing zone.
If we're gonna do two five-somes, maybe best 4 out of 5 balls instead of 3? Seems like with only 3-ball the 3rd through 5th guys on each team will spend a lot of holes where they make a not so great tee shot (at least mentally) picking up or trying to make ridiculous miracle approach shots on the off chance they work?
I agree with this. I have been following from Illinois. I have a bunch of friends in the SD area I was really looking into heading west this weekend and joining up, but with the holidays coming up that idea got axed.
Good idea, I'll start it now http://thesandtrap.com/t/63688/smack-talkthread-socal-dec-16th-tourney
