The January 2018 36×85 Fast & Fun league game was a Numbered Course. A numbered course is always a simple matter of “follow the numbers”. The scoring basis is Time, Plus Faults.
This course was a fun roller-coaster of the ride, featuring a series of flowing serpentines, none of which were terribly technical.
The 36×85 Fast & Fun league is a relatively new league that was created specifically for a club that has a floor of exactly those dimensions.
