i totally see your point, xander, and i am actually not totally sold on the idea of changing the tee pad... that being said, i will explain the reasoning behind it... the fairways of 13 and 18 run pretty darn close to eachother and create a situation that can be a touch dangerous... i think one way to deal with this is to require that groups send a spotter on 18 when playing down the hill to avoid clocking the group on the 13 in the head or the face... this can happen... in fact it happened to me last year, which is kind of funny considering that the group had indeed sent a spotter, he just wasn't really paying attention, i guess... and then the dude ended up being a jerk about the whole thing, which is neither here nor there...
... i agree the course record wouldn't count... but i don't want anyone to break their face. i'm happy to hear and take into consideration other people's opinions...
