Is there a par requirement, or is it frowned upon to have a par 70. I've routed a course that's shorter. Chances are it'll be deleted as im not really feeling it, but just in case.
Do not take the above post seriously. I was banned from a design forum. 2019 Mini-golf design Top-10 2019 Rookie Design Challenge Top-20 2020 CCDC Top-Half 2020 Dream Team Silver Medalist I can fold a fitted sheat. I can't spell.
TGC2019 allows players to choose the course settings before their round. How will that affect the judging? Judging will be based on the default settings. Designers know their courses the best.
Just to clarify the above point. The course will be played on all default options; including wind speed and direction which is out of the designers control?
Wind speed and direction is not something that can be controlled by the designer, but they should be considered in your designs. Judges may, at their discretion, modify the wind to get a better feel for your course in any wind condition.
The judges for this event are either top designers, players who play tons of rounds, or both. I am confident that a bad wind for a play-through will not wreck your scores.
Good luck to everyone that enters. Good result or not, just be proud of what you’ve achieved from a blank canvas, it’s a hell of a lot of work that goes into this, so you all have my utmost respect for getting the job done!
Just wanted some clarification, because I'm a stickler for rules. I noticed it seems b101 has at least 4 courses that are tour worthy in the database. He definitely has 3, and in his forum bio he says Tarako Reservoir is also tour worthy. Not to mention he has thousands of plays and handicap rated courses. To me, he doesn't seem anywhere near a rookie designer, at least not on the same level as anyone else here. So I just wanted clarification on the rules for this.
I do find it odd that he has 4 courses named as tour worthy by his own admission, but one seems to be missing from the database. Combined with a course on tour in the PGA(Yes I know, it was scheduled after the contest started). If it all checks out, great, I'd be happy to accept it. I just didn't notice he was the designer of that many courses until I was playing casual rounds, looked up the designer and it was him on 2 of the 3 courses I played.
