Does anyone know what the typical yardage the Champions Tours usually plays at?

Thank you for the reply. Is that 6700-6800 yardage for this weeks tournament fairly typical for a Champions Tour event? Also, wondering if the regional qualifiers are set up in that yardage range? Has anyone had any experience playing in the regional qualifiers to know first hand the yardages? Thanks.

I played 4 regionals.  2 at Bear Creek and 1 at Primm Valley (Lakes?) 1 at Soboba
Bear Creek I would say was 6900 to 7000 depending on the day
Primm I really don't remember.  It was windy and probably around 6900
Soboba was probably 7000 give or take

Regionals were not set up particularly difficult IMO.  Bear Creek had very fast/firm greens, but setup was reasonable.  Soboba had fast but very bumpy greens.  It was absurd IMO
I believe they are playing Primm again this year.  Pretty good course, with inevitable windy day or two.

Finals at Orange County National was pretty long
At TPC Champions (Scottsdale), I seem to remember it around 7000, but never seemed to play too long

Pretty sure that in the time that it took you to type that and create a whole new topic, you would have been able to get that information from the Tour website.

If not, there is always Google...

Well MattyO, that information isn’t as straightforward to find as you seem to think. And the time it took for you to write your  assbag reply you could have gone and jumped in a Loch.

I’m relatively certain he equated you to an enema.

and the TV contract stipulates that they "hide" the use of carts.  No WONDER they don't hold true q school "tryouts" for that tour.
