I know Dave Thomas is the one who put in the baskets. Is he also the one responsible for choosing which layout to use? I'm not against changing the layout throughout the season, but it really seems to be a shame to not be able to use all the flypads and new hole configurations. Not to mention the confusion caused by having the course mislabeled and flypads that play to nowhere.
Dave: If you are in charge of the layout, can you please explain why you decided to forgo all the hardwork of the Rochester disc golf community and revert to the old layout for Churchville. If you're not in charge of the layout can you please give us the name and contact info for the person(s) that is telling you what to do, so we can voice our opinions regarding the layout of the course?
If this layout is only temporary and you're planning on changing to the Worlds layout sometime later in the season please let us know.
I've heard the reason for this layout is to make the course accessible to beginners, but if that's the case then it's a poor excuse for whatever your true motiviations are, as the Worlds layout is a vast improvement over the current layout with only a few holes that might be considered "inaccessible" to beginners. I'd be willing to bet that if you took a poll of everyone that's played both courses you wind find a vast majority prefer the Worlds layout.
PS: Churville is the first course I ever played on and is the one I did a lot of learning on. Even when I first started I would of preferred the Worlds layout to the old layout.
