Most events were drawing at least 20. These types of courses just don't measure true golf skill. There are way to many greens that leave no putts on the North Star. The lack of decisions to be made on the course make it really easy.
I don't think it's putting area that bothers me so much about Northstar. I actually think the putting area's are good besides maybe one hole (8). I just don't think the course is technical enough to test true skill. As you stated earlier, it favors overhand shots most of the time. It's definitely a course that could use some mando's and some ob line to make it on par with the difficulty of the other two courses.
With that being said, I don't care what courses we play. I just want to play damn it!
