Reminds me of the course now called The Links at Rolling Hills on an Indian casino in Corning, CA. When it opened its claim to fame was EVERY hole could be played as a par 5 for a par of 90. Designed(?) by John Daly they actually played a couple of tournaments that way. I believe those par 5 tees on every hole are now gone but it almost got me to drive 2 hours north of Sacramento to nowhere to play it.
If forty foursomes tee off each day, three or four will want to "play the tips." They will drink their beer, play their music and have fun. I suppose the owner hopes this business model will pay for itself, and then some.
The press release could have simply stated come on out to Oregon and get your d- - k knocked in the dirt.

[size=78%]When I was a kid, there was a course in Bolton Mass. (now called International, I think) that claimed to be the first 8,000 course. Many (including me, back then) wanted to play it for that reason.[/size]
I suspect there will be many that will struggle mightily to get it around, shoot a million, brag that they played it and secretly rue the entire ordeal.
If you think that’s crazy, there was another course in Oregon that made a big deal of goats for caddies.Oh, wait . . .
They serve "chevon" every which way at Silvies.
So true, Tom! I have friends that refused to eat goat and were forced to drive to Burns each night for dinner. 🤣 Didn’t bother me too much, but I really missed pork at breakfast. Goat sausage is just wrong.
