How do I decline the money? I’d like to stay AM. Sorry for not asking sooner. I didn’t think I was in the money.


Matt Van Dusen    October 2 at 4:15am

First round Starting holes will be posted after checkin.


Michael Kirby    October 2 at 12:38am

I'm still on the wait-list, any chance showing up tomorrow may still allow me to play?

Matt Van Dusen   October 2 at 3:24am

If you don't show you for sure will not play

Scott Malone    October 1 at 12:38pm

I have come down with a cold and even though I am fully vaccinated, I do not want to risk the health of others. I regretfully must withdraw from the tournament. I’m sorry for the late notice. Please leave my money in the tournament for other’s benefit.

Matt Van Dusen   October 2 at 2:26am

They will be posted after check-in

Matt Van Dusen    September 29 at 4:56pm

We are a little behind schedule on the course. We still have a few tee pads to cut in and some branches to trim. We would appreciate it if people were not out playing the course while we are still working on it. Everyone will be in the same boat this weekend. Mark and I have not even thrown the entire layout, with the exception of the initial design process where we needed to see if some of the holes were even plausible.

The baskets and tee pads will all be out Friday morning 10am-ish until ... more

Sam Messe   September 30 at 6:32am

Thank you so much for all the work. We’re lucky to have you putting so much time and effort into steily. I have been traveling every weekend recently so haven’t been able to make any work parties. Thank you again.

Josh Aumick    September 28 at 2:07am

Is a caddie book needed for the new course or is it straight forward with no OB?

Matt Van Dusen   September 28 at 4:03am

I will send out the player email by Thursday night with course notes for each layout that you will be playing

Josh Aumick   September 29 at 1:23am

Thanks Matt, I appreciate you!

Matt Van Dusen   September 29 at 6:13am

Tee signs in pictures section have been updated to show ob and hole notes

Matt Van Dusen    September 27 at 7:59pm

Course map has been posted in pictures section. Still working on getting it up on udisc.

Matt Van Dusen   September 27 at 8:57pm

And so have tee signs for the new course

Matt Van Dusen    September 24 at 2:12am

Because the new layout is a very long Course, we have decided to do 3 rounds instead of 4. 2 rounds on Saturday and 1 on Sunday. This will allow traveling players more time on Sunday to get home.


Matt Van Dusen    September 22 at 7:38pm

The new course is set up on Udisc but for some reason it is not showing up. We are working on figuring out why. The course will not be set up until the day of the event. Everyone will be in the same boat as this will be the first time anyone has played the new layout.

Rob Weideman   September 22 at 9:30pm

Thanks for all your work on the new course Matt. Looking forward to playing it.

Tyler Schrock    September 22 at 1:03am

When will information about the "new course" be shared with the competitors?

Matt Van Dusen   September 22 at 4:16pm

When the new course is finished being designed.

Tyler Schrock   September 22 at 6:25pm

The event is in 10 days. Will it be open for practice before the event?

Matt Van Dusen   September 22 at 7:46pm

Tee pads will be out and basket locations will be marked but the baskets will not be set up until the day of the event.

Nathan Piwonski    August 24 at 8:59pm

Hello, I’m just curious if divisions don’t fill will those spots be opened up for the waitlist down the road. Thank you.

Matt Van Dusen   August 30 at 8:56pm

As always, yes

Nathan Piwonski   September 1 at 6:19am

Brandon D Cockerham    August 15 at 8:12am

Matt Van Dusen   August 11 at 5:00am

Love you Taylor. If there is anything I can do to help get you into this tournament please let me know

Matt Van Dusen    August 9 at 11:20pm

Hello all,
We have some good and bad news. We are going to postpone the Doug Newland - WA State Championships until Oct 2-3 2021. It has taken us longer than expected to move forward on developing the new course and we do not want to rush. It is our goal to give you all the best possible course that we can.

I am going to be refunding everyone's entry in the next day or two and rescheduling registration to open later in the week in an attempt to give everyone a fair shot a getting signed ... more
