Club Championship on Aerated Greens?

So I need to know how upset I should be. Our club championship "was" 4 weeks ago its a 2 round over 2 day event. We played Saturday and I did ok I shot 76 with a snowman and have a 2 shot lead. Sunday comes and we get rained out which was completely understandable it was a monsoon. But the last 3 weeks the club has not shown they care at all. So much that it has gotten to the point where the owner has essentially told us in the hunt to figure it out ourselves. The greenskeeper is a joke we know even if we do play we know the course will be a disaster. They've aerated the greens, haven't mowed, and we know nothing will be done about leaves (pretty big deal when lost balls are same as OB). 

So talking with those of us that are still trying to play (a whopping 4 of us) we're trying to find a solution and I don't like any of them. 

#1 wait it out and pray the course is playable. Aerated greens so it's doubtful (since the greenskeeper doesn't know what he's doing) and unsure if/ when that even happens

#2 go to another course and play the final round

#3 call the tournament after the 1 round

Unfortunately option 3 is looking like what is going to happen which I'm going to be super bummed if that is how I win it. What should I do here and if we do decide to cancel the final round how scummy should I feel?

Not your fault if that's how it goes. The second round is washed out. That's how it'd be in our conference championship, if it was a similar situation.

Trying to find a different solution is admirable, and should remove any stain you feel you deserve (which you do not) in "winning" after only one round.

I mean, I get it, your perspective here. But that's the Rules. Congrats, preemptively, on your win, or even if you play and don't win, on a good first round.

I appreciate it. I'm already getting the asterisk championship chatter I know they're just messing with me but I still want to finish up and push that lead to 8 or so just to put a stamp on it lol

I'm hoping this weekend will be good its only supposed to rain 1 day this week so it should be dryer but they don't even have the back 9 open yet, the high will only be in the 50s, and I'm told they haven't mowed in weeks so if we do play its going to be rough if it does happen. 

Either way I just want the waiting game to be over with.

Well course officially closed the weather has been terrible for weeks so I de facto won the championship. Which is cool because that was one of my goals for the year but still wish we could have fit it in somehow.

    • My college was about 50% Natalie's cost. An order of magnitude would be crazy. I don't think that rule of thumb holds up. 10x over 20-25 years? That's so far out of whack I can't imagine it. Denison costs about $75,000 per year. No way it cost only $7500 in 1996. Allegheny almost as much, and no way did it cost < $7k 25 years ago. It's gone up but I have no belief it's an order of magnitude.
    • Definitely better and different than at the 2017 Newport Cup. Good work. This amount of change is hard.
    • Sadly, a rule of thumb on tuition is an order of magnitude per generation. When I was a freshman at WPI, my roommate and I were paying $6000 tuition. His dad, who went to WPI, pay $600. Now it $60,000. And frankly, it’s not like the school is worth a 1000% more now.  I would only agree to forgiveness or help where the loans were predatory in nature. There have been instances of this, especially in the for-profit universities. But the cost has to be reined in. It’s far greater than inflation would justify.
    • My go to ball is the Snell MTB Black (great ball at a great price).  Characteristics and performance are comparable to the below balls I also play. I’ll buy the ZStar (buy 2, get 1) and TP5x (buy 3, get 1) when they’re on sale.  I also really like the ProV1, but only play them when I get them as a gift.
    • I don’t see anything wrong with your bag.  Maybe just continue messing around with longer clubs until you find something you really like?   Not sure an extra club in your scoring clubs is necessary either.  I think the best way to tighten up that end of the bag is working on flighted shots.
