Title: directional arrows freshly installed
Post by: john theiss on July 08, 2011, 10:36:28 AM
I went to the parks department yesterday to get paver stones and more green protective tree fencing.  They cut arrows into the paver (similar to WYCO) and the arrow points to the next tee.  I have been wanting to get this done forever but finally getting around to it.  This should make the course much easier to follow. 

hoping to get more tree guard up asap. there are a couple trees that are showing serious signs of injury.  They are oozing sap out of the wounds where discs have broken the bark. hole 11 has a really nice cherry tree that protects players from throwing the high anhyzer.  that tree is showing signs of injury.

I know this is an old topic but I know this is a problem at a number of courses.

I saw the links below and thought that modifying the nylon netted version to connect to the posts with something that will absorb the shock and fold the base at the bottom to create another unique OB obstacle.  Some of the posts could even be set at an angle to promote catching discs that hit the space it certain scenarios.  This could be particularly helpful at swope where it is easy to put a disc in another fairway.   (at least for me :P)
