Re: Course Conditions
The scorecard used for Texas States has the Wilmont at par 60. Par 4 for holes 6,8,9,11 and par 5 for 14. Whoever set up the pars for the scorecard might have referenced the pdga "Par Guidelines". It is a table that takes into consideration the skill level of the tees, the hole length, and density of foliage. They probably used the Gold Tees and light foliage. Amount of OB could also be considered. If you have a lot of OB on a hole then consider it like dense foliage.
Par 3 Par 4 Par 5
Light 275-600 600-900 900+
Heavy 225-450 450-750 750+
Using these guidelines I would reduce Wilmont #6 (555) to par 3; and reduce Wilmont #14(800) to par 4. Wilmont #8 (480) leave at par 4 because of the cautious approach shot.
Lets look at the Tourney
15 (523) and 16 (626) are par 4. Both have a lot of OB that come into play. Leave as is.
#17 (594) and #18 (575) are par 4. I could go either way on those two. They are borderline.
The Powell looks good all the way through.
Use SSA as a guideline? I think not.
I will get with Neal and ERic on this.
