Feedback indicates that members are not impressed with JCPRD's maintenance of the Shawnee Mission Park course. In defense of JCPRD, you have to admit that the amount of rainfall has made their mowing schedule difficult, to say the least.
What if someone offered to go with a park worker to mow the course? I played today, and the fairway on 11 wasn't even mowed, and has not been touched the last couple of mowing cycles. A guy with his grandson were losing discs in the rough off other fairways--it was not a pretty picture as the granddad was complaining about the use of his tax $$. I'd be willing to go with a JCPRD staff member on a mower and show them the fairways and areas that need to be mowed. Right now, the mowing is divided among several staff members, some who obviously DON'T KNOW the course. Can the course be assigned to a single staff mower who would know the fairways and areas that need to be cut? The heavy use of this course justifies increased mowing an maintenance of the course.
