I know I am overlooking this but how many rounds? 3? is there a finals? One course same layout all rounds?

2 rounds Saturday, 1 round Sunday. Two courses, 1 course will change for its second time. No "finals", per se. However, there is usually a skins round for the top 4 open players.

What are the two different courses? I saw Lazarre DGC.....is it High Water? On the course that changes, do you mean pin placements?
Sorry for so many questions: I've never seen this place.

We had Original and High Water. Pin placements will change

Trickey-

The dgcoursereview has the original as a 21 hole layout...is that how the event will go?

Example:
Round 1 (original 21)
Round 2 (High water 18)

Round 3 Original 21 Alternate pin placements?

That is the plan. It's been raining a bit, but I don't think it's going to push the river up enough to affect those back two holes. Depending on how many players, we may have to split up and alter things a little. But I can promise you...we're gonna have a good time.

I won't know for sure if I can make it until Friday. Fathers Day weekend puts a big dent in my plans.

on a side note: What is the side games? Long Drive and Putting competition?
Re: 15th Annual Ouachita River Open

Long drive, Ring of Fire, Pocket Disc contest for am and advanced. Probably the old disc flip till someone wins. Just fun stuff...

Shipley Sheraton used to be the place for out of towners but we moved. I'm sure there will be plenty of locals that will give you a place to crash come Sat. Good luck everyone.

Nice pay day Casey! Pretty good payout for a low cost entry free!

It was a fabulous tournament. Rickey Robertson did an outstanding job of obtaining sponsorship and exposure for the event. The rest of the Twin Cities club did their usual great job of running a great tournament. There was $500+ added cash to the pro divisions, 6 skins holes worth $100 a piece, a $100 distance contest prize, a multitude of CTP prizes, ring of fire prizes, food provided, dri fit shirts for everyone, and very nice custom slate awards for the winners. It was definitely a top notch event.
