Currently there are 3 established venues . Tri Cities, Four Mound, Stellicoom and and one up and coming Wenatchee that fit the proposed criteria. This eliminates ASC and it's great club support, White River, SeaTac, Lakewood and the turd of the series Riverside.
Hey, don't forget Terrace.
Jub, I know you're a proponent of fewer events in the series, and making a 2 course standard would support that. It's true that Lakewood/Seatac are very different courses, but I don't see that preventing having a 2 course event there. Pros play Tac-LW-Tac, Ams play LW-Tac-LW. Pros would play LW in all the longs, and if we're worried about timing, flag out some temporary shorter tees for the Ams' round.
I also think the peninsula should get some action...NAD/Fairgrounds would be perfect.
I agree, it would be a shame to take the ASC out though. I'd say make that the exception to the rule, that is, if Scot's still interested in being part of the series.
Sorry, I'd like to flesh out my thoughts more, but I'm actually kinda busy today.
