In previous years every round at the NGT has been stroke play. Any interest in something else for this year? I'm looking at as many as 8 rounds over 5 days.

Team events?
Match play using handicap?
Or designate one round as the NGT championship?
Long drive competition?
Closest to the pin?

Without complicating things too much or burdening someone with organizing it, I'd be interested in a round of match-play using 60%-80% of handicap and/or a best-ball team event. The long drive and closest would also be fun on each round because that doesn't take much effort to put together even if you pick a hole on each 9.

I enjoy playing stroke play most of the time and I'd wager that most guys will want to play Pinehurst stroke play leisure.

Friday would probably be the best day to do a match play and/or best ball teams since we're playing the same course twice.

I'd also be OK with stroke play the entire time if no one else is interested. I'll take you on match-play if we're the only ones interested in that.

As long as someone else is putting it together and I can post a score I'm fine with it. As far as long drive, count me out. I don't have a prayer against most of you.

On another note, how about picking out of a hat for groupings each day rather than Jay delegating who plays with who (or should I say who Jay wants to play with). Yes Ethan we know you haven't played with a few of us. But Lee Cummins hasn't played with any of us!

I want to play golf and socialize with nothing to worry or think about. But if people wanna do something, I'll go with the flow.

CO, just go take their money. They will all be inhaling a lot of aiming fluid so you will have the advantage!

I'll play about any game that the group wants to play just help me keep track of how much money I owe at the end of the round. I'm with Mongo on the long drive , I wouldn't have a chance but closest to the hole on the Par 3's I might can hang with that. I'm up for about anything. I just want to play lots of golf and drink a few beers and have fun.

1. I want to play golf with everybody at least one time.
2. It may be fun to play like a scramble format two man teams on one of the rounds.
3. May be fun to have Texas (me and Highlander) vs another group..
4. Only person I have played with on our trip is Jay, which was a blast- but I do want to show a better game..

Oh gawd! Don't give Jay an ego any bigger than it already is. You won't both fit in the cart!

If we did a team event, I suspect most would want to play 'best ball' with handicaps vs a scramble. Scramble rounds are not something you can post and I know I like to record my actual round score when I'm playing fun courses.

A best-ball with handicaps can be fun because it does allow everyone to play their own round, but as long as someone has a good hole, you can blow up and it not screw your team.

Looks like everyone is in for both rounds Friday. Got an idea, will write it up and post it after work. Should allow for posting rounds and some meaningful competition.
