There are a few holes that could stand to be changed but inventive O.B. could stand to make them more challenging. Holes like Northstars 1,6,8,17 all have unique qualities (some of which have been incorperated into DBD like H1's rock wall.)
I personally think playing alternate locations on DBD is a bad decision because those lanes and paths haven't been broken in yet. There has been only one hole change in the past 6+ months and i feel we will fall into the same problem being used to discredit northstar.
The shotgun start for ams and tee times for pros sounds great and would really provide an audience for that lead card.
-the argument for the playing the best SSA rated course would only hold water if you are trying to find the best DBD player. If someone wins the title of Farragut Open Champion i would like to know they earned by conquering all three courses =)
I like what Ben is saying about playing all three courses. I would be coming from Seattle to play there for my first time and it would be a bummer to not play all three courses there. Yes I could play them beforehand, but competition play is a little different.
