Re: Island Greens
If you're going to do this format at all, there's no place nor need for a 2-shot penalty in the mix. However, I wouldn't be against making it four shots before going to the drop zone versus taking the extra penalty on the third. I could see doing the 4 shot version before drop when you have a widely varying skill level playing the same tee so it gives lower rated players who might struggle potentially one more shot at it. In the case of Highbridge, we're planning up to three tee shots then drop for all divisions. But there are two tees and some divisions will be starting from the White rather than Gold tee so it should work well from both.
Some players will be pressed to have three discs in their bag appropriate for a tee shot. Making them carry four would also be an additional burden. Or maybe that should be the challenge for players to be forced to use a disc they are less comfortable with if it gets to the fourth shot?
