Q: How do you choose the hole locations ?
A: There are many factors involved, weather conditions, wind direction and velocity, turf conditions, firmness of the greens and the design of the greens.
Q: Are the hole locations set 6 easy, 6 medium and 6 hard everyday?
A: The answer is no. We try and set the golf course up with challenging but fair hole locations by using a variety of left, right, front, back and middle hole locations for each round.
Q: Do you work every event?
A: We work 28 to 30 events throughout the year.
Q: Under a one ball competition, the exact balls are different colors. Is using either OK?
A: Currently the color of the ball would be listed separately in the Conforming Ball Book. Even though the markings are the same on the pole and seem, if the color of the ball is different, it is considered a different brand of ball and would not be able to be switched out during a stipulated round.
