Dream Team 2020
Big format change this year and two new captains. This year sees the battle everyone wants, with ryanmcconnell taking on gamesdecent . As with last year, there will be a signup, followed by captains drafting their teams. Teams will communicate with each other, can suggest ideas and give feedback on each other's designs (no file-sharing allowed, however). We anticipate two teams of 10 each with 2 alternates per team - alternates will still get full feedback from judges.
This year, the team aspect will take centre stage, with the contest taking place over a number of matches, with points or halves awarded by the judges for each match-up. This will include:
- Fourball (two pairs of courses going head to head, with the full 18 being judged)
- Foursomes (two pairs of courses going head to head, with captains choosing one front nine and one back nine to be judged)
- Singles (mano a mano) with one collab course per team also going head-to-head
The fun part? The captains select each matchup. One selects a designer/pair, the other responds with a designer/pair they think can beat that.
So, you think you can contribute? Looking for a fun contest to take part in and still get meaningful feedback? Bring it on. Get excited.
- 1st - 8th August - sign up opens; register your interest.
- Week of 9th August - Live draft. Teams to set up Discord and start discussing plans.
- 21st August - designers can officially start their courses, with the release of PGA 2K21
- 1st - 14th December - publish window
As introduced in last year's CC contest, one added feature is that designers must choose three from the following list of options to incorporate into their course. The best courses in real life or in game tend to use a lot of these to add flavour or variety, but the focus is on incorporating them successfully and creatively:
- At least one driveable par 4
- At least one par 3 greater than 230 yards
- At least two holes with zero bunkers
- At least one blind tee shot
- Four green sites each within 200 yards of each other
- At least three par 4s under 400 yards
- At least one three shot par 5
- At least one template hole of your choice (please specify template used and provide a real world example!)
- At least five par 5 holes
- At least five par 3 holes
- Course of a par 69 (no lower for database purposes)
- Course of a par 73 (no higher for database purposes)
- Total course yardage no greater than 6900
- Either hole one or hole eighteen to be a par 3
- Entire course to be contained in 1,000,000 yard area (e.g. 1000x1000, 800x1250 etc)
