Swope / Re: R.I.P. Swope Disc Golf Course Bathroom

The basket on 15 was apparently hit by a large something. The basket is a little bent up but will catch a disc. I will move it away from the mud pit tomorrow.
I moved a few baskets that were sitting in mud or water yesterday. 18's tee pad is broken in a number of spots too  >:(

Is 15's basket going to be replaced?

DD Facebook page provides a link, but they do say they are tentative times meaning they can change.

Went down to do a practice round at Jones Gold today.  Threw my Wahoo into a pond (hole 4).  Tried to get it out by throwing rocks over it and causing waves to bring it to shore, but it wasn't working.  Wasn't too upset because I really don't care for it.  Then another golfer came by, so I asked him if he had a Golden Retriever.  Sure enough he did, so I tried to get my Wahoo.....except that I wasn't holding onto the rope nearly as tight as I thought I did.    So it went into the water, rope and all.

This whole time, there is a girl sitting in the shelter watching me make a fool of myself.  I can't strip down to my grundies, because she's watching.  (Yeah, I know some of you would have, but...)  Now, I have to get wet, so I can get this stranger's GR out.  He didn't ask, I just did it as that would be what I would expect. So, after 1 hr 40 min drive from Lawrence, I played 30 minutes and am absolutely wet.  Tried to play 1 more hole, but it's 50 deg, my jeans are clinging to me like my son's skinny (tight) jeans do, and I am no longer having a remote amount of fun. 

3+ hr round trip drive, 30 minutes of golf.

Monday, 6pm?
No entry fee?
What is a New Player?  My Kan-U-Wyco rating would have been a 836.

OK - I just now realized I posted on a 4 year old thread.

About two years ago I was playing cliff drive and I could smell fruit on hole 5 or 6. (The steep one up the hill where the basket is right on top of the hill. I still don't have the numbers straight since the renumbering.) I started looking around for the fruit and found some wild paw paws. They were delicious. I got about fifteen of them and had to climb a couple of trees. I haven't seen them there since then. Paw paws are about the size of a potato and taste like papaya but are completely native to Missouri.

I've been trying to grow a stinkin' paw paw in my yard for 3 years now.  I've killed one tree, and the second I thought died, and then grew a shoot the next year.  I'm totally playing Cliff Drive next fall.

13 remains tough but won't be as difficult as last year; OB off the tee goes all the way to the road and the 2nd OB island is larger, so it's much easier to reach on your second shot. But the island around the pin is still pretty tight. However it is wide out to the right. 

Haven't played a WyCo tournie yet.  If I understand this, you're good until you reach the line that intersects the street, then there is OB until you get to the middle island 2/3's the way to the hole, then OB, then the pin island.  Is that correct?

Also, on hole 2, 9, 10, do you retee for the 3rd shot if you go OB off the tee?

Did you see Wysocki took a 10 on hole 6, yet still had a 1023 (?) rated round 1.  6 over par on 1 hole, but still shot over 1000 for the round.  Crazy.

Just played the new holes WITH the pads in place!
I talked to a city worker and he said they had just finished.
Definitely rough around the edges, but the work so far looks AWESOME!
Thanks to all the helping hands!

Me too, the new hole 13 is fun. So fun i lost my Striker over the creek. If anybody finds it i would appreciate a call back on it.

I dug it out of the creek today.  It was sticking straight up and down in the creek bed.  Just to let you know, the painted abrasive grip on the inside edge is a violation of PDGA Rule 802.01 C and this disc cannot be used in tournament play that is PDGA sanctioned.

I live in Lawrence, but will be playing Ram N' Salmon if you want to get it then.

I've been reading about some sort of PDGA sanctioned leagues.  Has there been any discusion to this?
