Solution: No groups larger than a foursome = use up to two ghost groups if need be.
While ghost groups will inevitably slow the play some, the slowdowns are distributed across the course, so that no wait is ever very long, and no huge gaps of open holes develop. I think ghost groups will produce a smoother flow of play than will groups larger than four players.
If you start your ghost groups on short easy holes that follow long difficult holes, then the slowdown is minimal. Also, start the ghost groups well apart from each other.
How will I help as opposed to just taking pot shots? I will be more than happy to assist in filling out score cards, designating starting hole assignments, etc. See you at the next CSL!
I will fully stand behind this. 6 people to a pad for myself is not a fond thought
either ghost groups or have mixed teams playing singles matches.
