I am looking forward to being out there on Sunday Ron. I'm interested in seeing how the different teebox thing plays out. I'm not a pro, but I can shoot +5 or so out there on my own from the longs. I can bump up for the day if ya need me to. Or I can totally dominate from the weenie tees Oh Yea baby! See you all out there, and say hello, so I can put some faces with names.

Doubles Divisions? Only one division of play -- everybody.
But, 2 divisions of skill level. Each week, regardless of who or how many -- the crowd will be divided in 2 equally numbered groups. For ease of understanding we shall call them pro and am. It would be just as fair to call them A's and B's.
Each team will have a pro(A or the more skilled folk) and an am (B, or the regular skilled folk) on it -- based on random draw. Hence Random Draw Pro/AM. We will divide the crowd so that f we have an odd number, then the odd player will be an A. They get one extra mulligan per hole. For that shot, they can choose the best lie -- not a "have to take it anyway shot". They get 2 extra shots on any par 4 holes.
The head doubles guru of the week (RD and his doubles leadership team) will divide the group. Random draw is a fairly easy way to keep the teams sorta' even. Ringers and baggers are welcome, but can expect a short-lived run as a B.
Cards of 2 teams (3 if we have to) will be set. The group then heads to white tee on their first hole. A's throw from the whites, then everybody moves to the red tee, and B's throw. Best shot (or best lie) is chosen and both players throw from there.
Hole # 9 will require the A's to throw twice/ B's throw once before best lie is determined. I think for this week, we will move #12 to the cave.
I suppose I should've checked the forums before showing up at 1:45 yesterday. Played with a new group of good folks; hopefully one or more will participate in some tourneys. Nothing like a round from the reds to boost one's confidence.
I was under the impression Mother's Day was a day off from doubles. Can someone confirm?
