What would be good to do is to try to upscale courses that are short by modern standards, but which yield a great amount of dispersion. At 2011 Worlds, everybody believed that the cream would separate mostly at DeLaveaga, which is pretty much an upshot-scale course for "super gold" players by today's standards. Pinto Lake, Ryan Ranch, and CSUMB are much longer courses, but many of the holes are wide open, and a super class player can just hyzer bomb their way through the course, parking almost every hole off the tee. The thing that is unique about DeLaveaga is that there are usually many different options to choose when throwing from the tee, and a good amount of risk-reward scenarios that challenge the mental game more than the physical game.
After talking with super gold players (they have very strong opinions), I think we need to have more courses that combine all of the above elements into a single package. And I know that a lot of people will say you get that in some of the longer eastern courses. But the trouble with a lot of the long courses with tons of trees on the east coast is that they don't usually offer many options off the tee, just tunnel, tunnel, tunnel, tunnel. They drove a tractor through the dense trees along some route between the tee and the pin position, and that's it. You don't have to think much about which shot to throw, it is already chosen for you. There is often just a narrow fairway, and one available line. What is much more fun is to have 3-4 tight paths/routes through the fairway, which require different kinds of throws, and which offer different risk-reward calculi. What I'm thinking about is a course like DeLaveaga that you can scale up to 3X its present size. Milo McIver is a step in the right direction, but it lacks the tree density and topography that would make it fit the bill more appropriately. On the east coast, Maple Hill is also a great step in the right direction, and some of the holes do offer options and lots of risk-reward, but some of the other holes there (especially the open holes) are pretty straightforward and don't force the super gold players to think carefully about their shot selection.
