In the early days of the BGO, before LR/Banklick was 24 holes, we had our own 24 holes and included in it was a hole over the back lake that teed off from the second front shelter by the playground and the basket was placed at the corner of the lake just past the water, so you had OB water and OB road. For a couple of the tournaments we had a "bullseye" painted around the basket and you got points for getting inside the different rings 1-5 I believe, 5 being a bullseye. Great hole, great fun, great heartaches for some. If we play it, it will only be for Pros.

Well you could just say that you're someone else that is a pdga member and use their number.  Just make sure that you don't use someone that is local - go for somebody like Ken Climo or Barry Schultz.  They'd love that come ratings update time.

Ok, the BGO Tourney Team is in full gear and getting things ready for you. This is the 11th Annual Bluegrass Open, so we are really working on getting more $ for both the Pro payout and the Am Players Package and payout than ever before and most of you know we have always had great payouts and players packs.  We are offering Individual Supporter Tee Signs (corrugated plastic ones that you get to keep after the tourney) for $20. Commercial Tee Signs are $40. We've also got a few tee-shirt openings left for sponsors at $50 each for individuals or businesses. Let us know as soon as you can.

We also have the following available:
Title Sponsor
Course Sponsor spot available for Idlewild. The GCFDA is sponsoring Lincoln Ridge.
1 Scorecard Sponsor spot available
Banner Sponsors - supply your own banner

For more information about these, other opportunities and what you get for your sponsorship, call us at 859.371.3668.

It's an A-Tier Tournament and we have filled almost every year with Advanced and Intermediate. We have decided not to add another course.

Dan, I am interested in sponsoring Idlewild but did not see a flyer with info on costs for sponsors. If it is reasonable I can do it but would insist on playing Idle"wild" at it's toughest setting for the pro division. Can you post on here how much the cost would be?

Come on Liz, don't be a hater. I'm assuming it's going to be quite a bit of money and if you don't want to consider my conditions(challenge the open players to the max) maybe you should put up your own money to play a half ass course...... I've never heard of any tournament director turning down sponsorship "money" just because they didn't like the lay out of the course. I would guarantee that the pros would come for the challege.

I don't think there is any layout in Idlewild that would make it even close to being "half-ass".... It's Idlewild- give it some respect!

I've never known Fred to be affected by conditions, just teasing. If AMs want longs then move up,heh, heh, heh. Can't wait for DnD! I'm trying to get some folks down here from Michigan. It looks like two, so far, Mike Raley(forehand master) and a cat from Traverse City.

Have you ever heard of a TD accepting sponsorship money on the condition that they alter the course?  It just seems like such an odd proposal and you're acting like this is normal.  Whether TDs accept or turn down such offers is a bs question if no one ever brings up conditional sponsorships.

First off, the only person that has any say about any tournament is the TD and only the TD.
Fred, you should have contacted Dan personally and not use this message board for info like this, We all should try to be more professional with matters like this. ps. hope you are enjoying your vacation and that nasty oil spill doesn't effect it for ya.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinions and suggestions can be very useful, but keep in mind just because you offer advice does not mean they have to heed said advice and you should have respect for those regardless of what they say and feel.

Ok, I really appreciate everyone's opinion on the Idlewild course. But if possible, could you switch that discussion to either the Idlewild course thread or an Idlewild vs. Idlemild thread. I really would like to keep this thread about the tournament. There has been a team of people, not just myself, who have been working on this tournament for a year now and we are all trying to make this an "A-Tier" tournament and, be the best tournament you will play this year. We won't do everything the way each one of you wants, but you should, at the end of the weekend of tournament play, come away very pleased with the tournament, tired but pleased. We will do our best to make that happen. Any questions or comments about the tournament can be expressed to me by phone 859.371.3668. I pass on all comments to the BGO Tourney Team - I am the TD but I have a Co-TD and a group of people who I use to make the decisions. I don't make them unilaterally.
