New happenings in Lawrence disc golf scene
« on: April 17, 2017, 10:19:49 AM »
Some very cool things are happening in Lawrence for disc golf.

Last Saturday, 20+ people showed up to help move the old Mach IIIs from Centennial out to the Riverfront course and move the newer Mach V's to Centennial.  Our goal is within the next year to raise money for brand new baskets for the Centennial, move the Mach V's back to the river, and find a new use for the Mach IIIs.

After moving the baskets on Saturday and playing a random doubles round, a handful of people went out to Clinton State Park (on the east side of lake) to begin maping out 7 more holes to make that 11-hole course a full 18-hole course.

The Tuesday night league handled forever by Hans Coleman is on a rotating schedule between Centennial, Riverfront, Clinton Lake State Park and Poke & Hope (a private course on west side of  town) with formats of singles, doubles, Wolf, etc.

Meeting last week with the Lawrence P&R, they are finally open to making Riverfront a legit full 18-hole course.  Very, very freaking cool.  Part of their requirement for working with the players (sharing keys to locks, planting trees at Centennial, working at expanding Riverfront) is that they want an organized group.

Therefore, the league (club) will be having an election for a 7-person board on April 25.

find a new use for the Mach IIIs.

Lobster traps, buoy anchors, parking bollards. . .   ;D

In all seriousness, this is awesome.
