    Default Favourite VIC Champs venue

    I've had some discussions recently with a few VIC Champs regulars about favourite venue, and have subsequently decided to throw it to the people. I've devised a 'March Madness' style knockout tournament to get this done:
    • I listed out all of the Thursday-Sunday official courses.
    • Due to some duplicates I was short a few, so I threw in a couple of the better-attended Monday venues and a special 'wild-card' to round it out to 32 courses.
    • They were then seeded based on their 2020 Top 100 ranking, with the unranked courses in random order.
    • I have a table with all of the matches which will be posted here shortly.
    I'll provide a link to a Strawpoll each day, which will end at 7pm the following night (I've allowed an extra day for the first poll). The first match will go a bit longer. The results will go up in this thread/ post, and the next link will be provided. I'll update this post with anything else I've forgotten.

    Now, the important stuff... your vote should be for your 'favourite' Champs venue. It has nothing to do with the best architecture or conditioning. The Top 100 rankings already does that for us.

    Which course invokes the best memories, where did you feel like you were in golfing heaven on earth, which course suited your game better, where did you have the most fun etc? That is the sort of thing you should consider in casting your vote.

    To jog some dusty memories, here is a quick summary of the courses and related info:

    It’ll be difficult to base a vote on your Vic Champs experience but times are tough, if it helps you feel less isolated from the outside world, have at it .

    Northern was a last minute sub-out for Sanctuary Lakes. I didn't think you'd have voted for it due to the birdie comp result.

    If you've played any of the courses listed, go for it!

    I'd go for the site of a Monday round where an ace was made over a the site of a Thursday round that Bob won... That said, besides Rickie Prowler's ace I have no fond memories of Northern...

    Match 1 is done. RM West wins (no surprises there) with 83% of the vote.

    Match 2 link is now in the OP.

    Having a massive hangover, hitting shanks on the driving range, and losing to Spud does not invoke "best memories". Gutter pizza the night before does though.
