I said that a month ago, which was when it was last mowed on the back 9.  It's pretty shaggy right now. With all the rain, P&R hasn't been able to mow.  I would recommend waiting a few weeks until they can catch up.

General Banter / Re: Belton Course

I found out today that there is a course in Belton just south of the High School and the Upper Elementary School. This course has a marker and a Disc Catcher per hole but no additional signage. The front nine made sense when I walked it today. Once I got to hole 10 I was incredibly confused.

If someone is a little familiar with the course, could you provide some information on it and some general guidelines for navigation?


The best navigation is after you finish the front nine, get in your car and head east on 58 highway, turn south on Madison to the Raymore course and play our 18 holes, with tee pads.

I know it's April Fool's day, but no joke Raymore course is 90% complete and playable with 18 holes. There's still some additional mowing and things that are not complete, but there are 24 tee pads poured (two pads for 2,3,8,10,15, and 16) and all 18 baskets are in.  One change from the original posted map is #10 and 18.  10 is now shorter and 18 is using the original green/basket location for 10.  There will be new bridges put in between 10 and 11 and 13 and 14 to cross stream.   

A couple of other things that I am working with the P&R to address is that there are soccer teams practicing near 5 and 6 with parents camped out right by the basket or in the fairway.  Not much I can do about it for the next month, but those teams should be done by Mother's day.  Usually between 5:30 and 7:30 pm Mon-Thur is the worst, the rest of the time it's wide open.  Also sometimes there are people fishing near hole 2, 3, 7, and 8.  Please be aware.  See you out there.

I might be doing some league at Raymore on Friday nights.  But first I have to get our course finished first.  Half done...  YESSSS!!!  Actually more than half done.  I hope to have a ribbon cutting ceremony this spring.  I have a Facebook group started, if you want to be added let me know.

Here's what I think about all of this ....

A male patient is lying in bed in the hospital, wearing an oxygen mask over his mouth and nose. A young student nurse appears and gives him a partial sponge bath.  "Nurse,"' he mumbles from behind the mask, "are my testicles black?"  Embarrassed, the young nurse replies, "I don't know, Sir. I'm only here to wash your upper body and feet."  He struggles to ask again, "Nurse, please check for me. Are my testicles black?"

Concerned that he might elevate his blood pressure and heart rate from worrying about his testicles, she overcomes her embarrassment and pulls back the covers. She raises his gown, holds his manhood in one hand and his testicles gently in the other.  She looks very closely and says, "There's nothing wrong with them, Sir. They look fine." 

The man slowly pulls off his oxygen mask, smiles at her, and says very slowly, "Thank you very much. That was wonderful. Now listen very, very closely:

Are - my - test - results - back?"

<takes off organizer hat><puts Best Side hat on>

deadwood was there last year, 0 fer 2, if I recall correctly.

<swaps hats>

Correct, I didn't play my best because I had somewhere else I was suppose to be and it was not at the East/West Challenge.  I made arrangements to be there, but it didn't work very well for me.  I was there, but not there if you know what I mean. And if you don't understand, then you don't have kids and other responsibilities and you need to grow up.   

I am just using the forum to state my personal preference.  You don't have to schedule around me.  But if nobody says something about what they prefer, how will you know Mrs. Walker?

I would prefer the E(ast) W(ood) challenge be a different weekend.  I have and will continue to have conflicts on that weekend.

General Banter / Re: Raymore course, why go?
« on: September 26, 2014, 08:44:48 pm »
We had a group out there this afternoon and there was hardly anyone out there.  Right now Tue-Thu nights are very busy from 5-7.  I haven't been out there on Mondays in a few weeks so I can't say much about if it's busy too.  The problem is that right now the sun is setting around 7pm and there's not much daylight for practices and games to get in.  I did talk to the P&R staff and next season we will make some changes to fix this problem.  Also today we got a new information kiosk installed and we started marking the tee pads to be poured in the next few weeks.

This is a multi-use park and we have to share the park with other users.  We haven't worked out everything yet and I'm sorry that you didn't get to play all the holes.  Please remember this course is NOT complete.  It is playable, but not everything is worked out yet.  I've been out there and I've never had any interference with holes 1 and 9 because of football practice and they are there almost every night.  I have had issues with holes 5 and 6 though for soccer practices and there are some things that I will be asked that be changed in the scheduling which will hopefully fix these holes.  It will get better.  It's similar situation to PHill being closed for the cross country meet.  Remember calm down, this is just for fun.

General Banter / Discraft? Discraft!
« on: September 09, 2014, 01:45:27 pm »
Since I filled out the Innova and Trilogy, I thought I would show the Discraft molds I throw too. 

Z Zone (super overstable midrange)  Love this disc!  Forehands, skip, head wind, approaches, etc.  It never flips and rarely goes too far.  I can crank on this puppy and it can take it.   
Buzzz regular Z 172-175g dead straight, little fade, or anny shots.  Whatever line is needed. 
Buzzz 10 year anniv 177g+ Used, when full power is needed or more fade is needed than the straighter Buzzz.
ESP Nuke (max distance drives). I currently don't bag anymore, as it's too inconsistent for me now.  But my longest drives ever were done with this disc.

Regular Bag
Pro Rhyno (2 main putters)
Ontario Champion Rhyno (driving and approach putter)
Glow Champion Gazelle (fairly beat understable fairway, use it as a utility disc too)
Teebirds (PFN Star, Champ, GStar, AJ Star are all used depending on day and conditions); workhorse fairway driver
Star TL - (straight fairway driver)
Star Valkyrie - 2, one is super beat and like a roadrunner and the other is newer and flex's out.  Used for S-shots, anny's, and straight shots
PFN Star Firebird - (Waaaay cheaper than a 11X Champ firebird and in my opinion is just as good)
Star Tern (occasionally Champ too) - long turnover, anny, and shots.  This thing bombs!
Destroyers (4 Star and GStar) - Workhorse distance drivers
XCaliber (first run EchoStar) - Overstable distance drivers

Others that I play around with and throw in the bag sometimes, but aren't mainstays
Star Sidewinder - backup for beat up valkyrie
Champ Wraith (older from 2009 timeframe, newer ones don't seem to work for me)
Champ Starfire (old CE)
Champ SL
