The dawn of the Pittsburgh World’s Preview Weekend is near!   I know many of us are quite excited for two great events showcasing the two of the four courses.

Weekend Resources – All Maps, Scorecards, Course Rules and event copies of the permits are available online
Find everything electronically here:  2015 Invasion Resources

Both days check-in will be from 8am until 9am.   We’ll then hold a brief (or not so brief as many will attest) players meeting and get the show on the road!!


Here is a listing of the tee assignments for each course:

Deer Lakes Symposium
  • At Deer Lakes Invasion tourney May 23 (as for Pro Worlds): ALL PRO divisions other than Senior Grandmaster Women and Legends will play Blue tees.
  • Male Legends will play White Tees at Deer Lakes. Senior Grandmaster Women and Male Grand/Senior Legends will play Red tees at Deer Lakes.
  • Male Advanced will play Blue Tees at Deer Lakes. 
  • Advanced Women, Advanced Masters, Advanced Grandmasters, Intermediate Men and Intermediate Women play White tees at Deer Lakes.

Slippery Rock U Symposium
  • For the SRU Invasion tourney this weekend and for Pro Worlds — All Pros other than Female Grandmasters, Male Senior Grand Masters, and Legends will play Gold tees at SRU. The aforementioned exceptions will play the White (middle) tees at Slippery Rock.
  • On Sunday May 24, Advanced Men play SRU gold.
  • Advanced Women, Advanced Masters, Advanced Grandmasters, Intermediate Men and Intermediate Women play White tees at SRU.
  • Recreational and Junior Divisions play Green (shortest) tees, except on Hole 4 (East Lake) which has no Green tee – therefore play White tee on hole 4.
  • 6 or 7 of the Gold tee pads at SRU will be finished by the weekend. Otherwise tee lines will be painted on the level ground for tee pads. Should be groomed and flat grass to throw from.


Please remember everything in life is subject to change….however we’re going to work hard to adhere to everything listed.


I wanna thank everyone involved with the hard work in getting Pittsburgh ready for the 2015 Pro Worlds.   Also a direct thanks to J. Gary Dropcho for all his great communication with me as well as both Deer Lakes and SRU in getting this weekend situated!
