Title: Too much time to play? Have you tried the alternate course yet?
Post by: jack on January 03, 2012, 12:13:04 PM
I don't think that enough attention is getting brought on Blue Valley with the addition of the new pads to shorten the course significantly.

We got through it this past week in a little over 90 minutes, with alternate throws on many holes.

In case you are lost.....its relatively simple to play.  Play to the color baskets (red ones from Swope are out there now), so it goes as follows:
1-play to middle field red basket-goto #2
2-play it as usual-goto#3
3-play it up hill to red basket-go due south to new teeing area
4-play to #4 basket through tree wall-goto #5
5-play #5 goto 6
6-play #6 goto 7
7-play #7 goto 8
8-play to Red basket on hill, shorter about 200'-goto #9
9-play to Red basket on Hill-goto pad in trees, new clearing to the NE slightly
10-play to #9 LONG Red basket in trees--Goto new pad North of here, and tree line
11-play to #10 basket (looks freaking great with new greenery BTW)-goto#11 tee
12-play to red basket short of the opening-goto new pad between this basket, and #9 long
13-play to #11 basket over the trees, (Slim has been wanting an Ace Hole at BV, now he has one!)-goto#12 pad
14-play to Red Basket, this is left of trees across #13 fairway, aim to left of trees, not the middle of trees-goto new pad area behind the trees
15-play to #13 long pin placement-goto#14 pad
16-play to #14 pin goto #15 pad
17-play to #15 pin goto #16 pad
18-play to #16 pin (new placement moved up the hill higher)

Call it a day.  Soo many chances to improve your game, and realistically gives you a feeling of a new course with that true sense of the desire to feel human at BV.

I am hopeful that I will be running league at Cliff again, and I have asked the board to move it back to Monday's.  With the notion that on the 1st of the month we will be playing BV as part of the course mix, and turning the Monday Night league into the NE League night.

Super fun, and a great property folks, you should go enjoy it this week with the weather being great!!

Thanks Jack!  I'll have to check it out.  So, what did you set the short course record at?
Title: Re: Too much time to play? Have you tried the alternate course yet?
Post by: jack on January 03, 2012, 01:39:54 PM
there was not a record pace event played.....my +11 isn't indicative of the oppt out there.  Right now I am merely playing with the ideas of what holes to use for the Wide Open out there as we will be more than likely using a smaller version of the Big Beast for play, so I wanted to get a better idea out of it.

When I got done though, I was tired, and I was excited about this knowledge of the newer course ideas.

Based on this the following are true possible birdies now:
1
2
3
4
5
8
9
10
11
12
13
14 (for the SUPER HUMAN arm)
15
16
17


so a -15 is possible out there now for certain, but I am thinking that I may want to keep #1 long, and #3 long, as I love them both so much, but it really messes up the flow of the course, so it may be a moot point, and we play it as it is short......  Could also move #1 to a shorter than long position.....we will also probably not use the short pad on #10 teeing area, as I want to see how people respond to the new greenery.....

That's a great map. Probably the nicest and easiest-to-follow map I've seen of a course. Be nice to have one for each course, accessible here at the KCFDC site, and perhaps printable for course newbies.

Great call Andy!!

Looks like some great improvements to shorten the course a bit Jack.  Now I won't dread going to Blue Valley anymore, afraid of my arm falling off mid-round, and not being able to defend myself against the creepers hanging around the parking area staring at me.

Excellent map skills too!!

Duuuuuude!!! Posting live from BV, where great things are currently underway. As I type, P&R is out here in full force, planting trees and shrubs. Like, a boatload of trees and shrubs!

Just finished 1-10, and its pretty cool to come out to BV and consistently shoot 3's on every hole. (Bogeyed 7 & 9, but who's counting?) The new short course feels like playing any other course now, rather than just insanely long for the sake of being insanely long. Definitely going to be coming here more often from now on.

Congratulations to everyone involved with the improvements at Blue Valley!

Before leaving, I took the opportunity to berate a couple of the creepy old queers sitting in the parking lot. I told them, in no uncertain terms, that they will have to find a new location to perform fellatio on one another. Their response? "We weren't doing that... here."  :o

Then the one got back in his own vehicle, they both left, and I received an approving smile and thumbs up from the P&R employee watering the new greenery on #10. We're gonna take this park back, just you watch! 8)

I hope if this does go thru ,We have a contract in place ,amount of money givin to the club,proper signage on the courses,cleanup after the events ,well published advertising ahead of time.All the things we as a club would do.I am guessing the reason we would even think about letting someone else come in ,is to do things much bigger and better then we would do it.

Also are we taking bids from other companies I know at least 5 other people who want to come to KC and run events.

I am not opposed to the idea,I have just been on both sides in the past and have seen what has happened in other Cities in how they have dealt with this issue.

Having said all that ,I fully trust that our BOD will use every resource they have to make this vote the best for KC golf both now and for the future.

I played again yesterday out there, got it done in under 90 minutes again, the new greenery is wonderful, the new rocks and greenery on "origial #14" look awesome as well.

I am not sure what heck CLank's comment is about in here......so no response from me on that one.

Again great job! Can we get a round of applause over here for BV? I can't wait to play this course again tomorrow. Really fun. Some great tweener shots and some real deuce possibilities even for an Am like me  :) The bushes and trees are going to make such a difference as well. Again, bravo!

Post by: gleauzinier on January 09, 2012, 11:33:16 AM
the new shrubberies will really improve the asthetics and add some obstacles to the course, money and time well spent.

blue valley..........lite..........our group of two barely recreational gmaster golfers, one advanced gm, and one grinch and his dog all agreed to try and finish the truncated version some day. while it will make it much easier to play 18 at bv and another course in the same day, we rejoiced that the option to play the original still exists.
tally 4 great big "eh" votes. we find the lite version one third less fulfilling than the real thing.

The alternate course is a great deal of fun and was a very enjoyable round.  Sure there are some walks but why sweat the small stuff.  As mentioned earlier, the terrain, views, elevation is insane, the mogul greens are ridiculously awesome, the duece opportunities added in by the shorter holes, the several hours cut off by shortening it up, makes this course a must play for anyone coming to KC.

The addition of trees, shrubs, grasses, boulders are fantastic.    Plus when the park is mowed like it is now, it makes errant throws much easier to find and that helps speed up your round.  I was really impressed with all of the additions and was really happy to see the park being utilized by golfers. 
Title: Re: Too much time to play? Have you tried the alternate course yet?
Post by: jack on January 09, 2012, 01:58:46 PM
I agree....when we were out there this past Saturday, the 7 of use playing wolf got done in about 2 1/2 hours with a pitstop of beer in the middle, plus playing with 7 is not a short plan.....but there were an additional 7 people out there playing as well during our round, so seeing 14 out at BV was great.

For the Wide Open will probably move the last hole to the short placement for a must get birdie on the hole.

The whole park looks great out there, and is really starting to get a much more welcomed feeling to it with all the additional programming that is going on out there.  You should do youself a favor and go play the "new" course out there.

Played (or attempted to play) Sunday.  Got lost on 10 in spite of the directions that were graciously left.  Probably more due to having never played the "monster" and less to the clarity of the directions.  Found what we think was supposed to be the pad for new #10.  Maybe some sinage could be posted, even if its temporary?  BV, even in this "shorter" configuration, definately isnt for the weak of heart....lol.  Even with my weenie arm, though, I was shooting 4's on most holes with a few 3's (and one 5) laced in there.  Definately liked it.  It kinda seemed like Water Works on steroids.

Post by: jack on January 09, 2012, 05:11:45 PM
10's pad on the short course is in front of the tree line, though that actually becomes hole #11 in the "short" configuration.  For the Wide Open we will be using the existing #10 pad for that placement.  Signage will be there soon, as of now, having the pads, and bright green grass around them is a start in the right direction!

I enjoyed Blue Valley Lite but think I would have trouble playing it again without a map or guidance. I'm pretty directionally challenged and don't know the original course that well though. The park is looking wonderful with the new trees and other work that has been done. I will certainly be more open to playing there in the future.

Great job Jack and all others involved!

mike, found something that might help in case you ever feel uncomfortable at blue valley: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&NR=1&v=P60CFNwvWlU
looks like it could be deemed blue valley approved, maybe they could sponsor a hole (sorry, had to) in an upcoming (last apology) event.

NE league last night was a blast. First time I have played out at BV and it was very fun. Made it through with a 3 some guided by Timko in under 2 hours. Does anyone know what the par for Blue Valley Lite is? Just curious.
Title: Re: Too much time to play? Have you tried the alternate course yet?
Post by: jack on April 03, 2012, 01:31:08 PM
I'd be hard pressed to say anything more than 56 in last night's set up........
4's would be on #6 to the mogul placement, and then the 2nd' half of #9......you may....MAY work with me on #14 in that layout (#12 pad across #13 fairway to red basket...but it's a tough stretch as well to call that a 4)
Title: Re: Too much time to play? Have you tried the alternate course yet?
Post by: Timko on April 03, 2012, 02:15:38 PM
#14 in that layout is not a par 4.  I was 100' away from it off the tee and probably could have gotten another 30' closer with a perfect drive.  It's around 480' and probably plays in the 520' range.

What about #9b?  I think it would be tough for anyone to get within 100' of that pin off the tee.

Post by: jack on April 03, 2012, 02:58:30 PM
What about #9b?  I think it would be tough for anyone to get within 100' of that pin off the tee.

that was the second half of 9 that I mentioned.  I find it hard to get 100' off the tee pad on that hole in that configuration....  However, ggetting out and up the hill, and then a straight mid-range to the basket is the way to get a 3 on it....

I think that one and #6 are the par 4's playing a 56 par out there.....Aim high right, stay out of the bushes, or go to the short pin, and place the upshot under the basket.....just don't hit the tree off the pad on the drive like I did...but I did save a 4 on that one...

Just to make the record straight.....I'm not talking about #14 (#16 hole in the 18 hole round if starting on #1) pin, but actually talking about the other, and that is why I don't think that it is a 4 either Chris.  I think that a good tug across the fairway shuold get you a look at the basket, but then the way that thing shrieks down the slope, YIKES!!! ???
Title: Re: Too much time to play? Have you tried the alternate course yet?
Post by: Timko on April 03, 2012, 03:16:10 PM
Ah, ok.  #16 always felt like a short par 4 due to the dogleg nature of it.  I'd be interested to see some pros play that hole.  Can they go over all that pine to the right and get a look at 2?

Awesome. Love "little blue" However the mowing will deter me from going there more than a few times a month. I would of been fine wearing pants, and I didnt huck (too many) into the thick. Keep a close eye on your drive, as discs magically disappear into the grass!

Otherwise, tough course and I'm going to love playing it every 1st monday in league format. Getting geared up for the Wide Open is essential! Playing that (short) Bad boy plus Young park isnt going to be easy!

cheers!

The tall grass is quite a burden.  It makes the rounds last twice as long because unless you are standing on top of your disc, you won't see it.  So even when you land in the middle of the fairway and have a good point of reference, it may take you some time to locate it.

I was out at BV around noon and much of it has been mowed.  Can't say if the whole thing was mowed because I didn't see the entire park.  But hole 1 is mowed and so is all the grass near the practice basket up top by the pavillion.

Played league last night and had a great time with the people I played with Adam, TJ Ring and Tank. The course looks good and it will look even better when its mowed. The layout is great it played 2.5 hours for the 4 of us. A lot of the original holes and a few new ones. A couple of holes need some work so here is some constructive ideas. Hole 4 and hole 13 both need a gap to get through. Even if its a 6' wide gap. These are both overhand thumber holes which I dont have that shot. Doesn't seem fair to us that don't throw those types of shots. I can throw very straight when needed and would thread the needle if the gap was there.
The course is a great layout and will be fun to play.

I've only played that layout once, but both of those holes have decent spike hyzer lines for a lefty.  And I saw Vince (a righty) park #13 with a high anny line with a roc.

I'm calling it: Thursday, May 24th tee off 0800.

Danger? You said you may make it - anyone else?

Be there!

I will try and make it, even if I can't play an entire round.  ;D

I'll strongly consider it CD. Don't have to work until 11 and that is just off Rainbow Blvd and I would love to get a look at the new layout.

Will try to let you know whether or not to expect me later this evening.

Coop, we're talking Blue Valley not Rosedale, thus we won't be very near to Rainbow Blvd.

Oh I know, CD. I guess in my mind I mean "it's closer to Rainbown than Lawrence!"

I am planning to be there. Will let you know if something changes.

Here's a link to a great map showing all pin and pad locations and topography. Thanks Will. Use this link as you see fit.

Wow!  Just awesome.  I remembered hearing Jack mention an idea for this, but I haven't kept up to date on the KC courses.  So 5 tee pads added and 3 baskets?  The map is great.  It looks like the holes for the long course are marked in yellow unless there are 2 or more placements?  The exception would be holes 3 and 13, which have no yellow?  My guess is those can both be played from the long tee, making them half yellow, half red.
