Profitability
Explanation
Profitability is the most important element for gaining approval to hold a tournament because it ensures that the event will generate enough revenue to cover the costs and potentially make a profit. This is especially important for public tournaments, as they often require significant investments in terms of venue rental, marketing, and prize money. Demonstrating profitability not only assures stakeholders that the event is financially viable but also increases the likelihood of securing sponsorships and attracting participants. Without profitability, it would be challenging to justify the resources and effort required to organize a tournament.

The correct range for fairway width is 27-35. This means that the fairway should have a width between 27 yards and 35 yards. This range ensures that the fairway is wide enough to accommodate golfers of different skill levels and provides enough space for them to hit their shots comfortably. A wider fairway also allows for more forgiveness and makes it easier for golfers to keep their shots in play.

This layer can make the greens feel grainy or uneven, affecting the smoothness and playability of the golf course. A grainy surface can impact the roll of the ball and make it more difficult for golfers to accurately judge the speed and direction of their putts. Therefore, having a grainy surface on greens is undesirable for golfers.
