I have never been a TD so I might be totally off on this but if we start tee times at 7:00 A.M we could stagger them every ten minutes and have the last group tee off at 3:10. Hopefully, even if there is a bit of a back up the last group would be able to finish.(That would give the last group roughly 5 hours for the round if we are saying it gets dark around
. If we have 50 groups of 4 that is 200 players. The last time the safari was pro/am there was 198 players. I imagine not everyone who wanted to play would get in but tournaments fill up all the time - That's life - get your money in early. As far as the fees go, we could charge a bit more for the entry. I know I would pay more to support a pro/am tournament. If the fees were increased by $5 you have the $1,000 needed if the tournament fills - which it will. Also, I know the 7:00 A.M tee time is an early start but that would support the large amount of players. Thoughts?
