Thanks Rob, I don't think either of them are on here.  I called them both this morning.  Beckett took care of his, I haven't heard from Danny yet, but I am sure he got the message!

it doesn't make that much sense unfortunately to work on a hole that can't be maintained.  Once we get the rest of the course aligned and in good shape, then moving to the extra areas make sense.

Who is Chris Dickerson?  .....Don't know where this guy came from but he is only an Amateur through turning down cash.  Even his PDGA page lists him as Professional (due to his then 1007 rating). 

His PDGA # screams noob, but this guy has been playing for a long time.  He is playing Advanced in the upcoming Carolina Clash, undoubtedly so he can play Am Worlds.

He's already making a running for ROY 2015.   Lame.


Not true.  You can be a 1050 rated Am.  There is not any reference point that you MUST become a pro.

http://www.pdga.com/files/2014%20PlayerDivisionGrid.pdf

There is an unwritten rule that anyone over 970 should go pro.   But the idea that 990 rated Ams are out there is very true.  I think that Wiggins in 2009 here was close to 1000 rated when he played Am, he had played I think almost all Pro events that year and turned down cash.  There is nothing I REPEAT NOTHING wrong with an Am player keeping themselves there until they are ready. 

Overall if you select to play in PDGA, and just joined, win some and then go pro if you want to.  The fact that they just joined could be an indication they are ready to play competitively now and they weren't before.  Or someone got them to join.  I didn't join the PDGA until 1999.  I had at that point been playing for 15 yrs, I had played in a handful of PDGA events, I just didn't see the need.....now I am sure that I wasn't a 1000 rated golfer either! ;D :o

it's all good.  Just be happy you don't have him as competition to your level yet, right?

the problem is that if we mow it, it won't get kept.  Then it goes to the wayside.  Spending that much time on one hole to have it vanish doesn't make much sense when there is more to be done.

Getting the long #7 that hasn't been used in quite some time is a much more plausible effort of energy for certain.  That will require more effort for sure.

L5 is a tough one for certain.  The maintenance of it was always a subject that until it connects with the field opening across the west would be tough.

I love the energy and ideas you got flowing through!

I had sent out a team event about a year or two ago and was hopeful that we could all talk during that event as well...:-(

But I think that we can all work towards it, I have a few people on board now.  We can make it work if we try hard and help each other on it!

#3 par 5 is always arguable.  I think our entire card got 5's on it, and we were all around it with a shot at 4....

Hopefully I can get out there soon, but I know my next few weekends are shot with Masters and GBO, so it will have to wait until May, but I promise to find some time.  Maybe we can play Big Blue on Cinco De Mayo during league together?

It did look great.  The only really noticeable section would be the start of the woods on #4.  It looked pretty fresh out there, but the rest of the course looked just wonderful.

Some tree trimming is needed on #9 (Need a gap through the trees) and then on #10, is there a way to tie those trees together to give a gap?  #18 may need a cleansing of the tree wall as well.

The rest of it looked fantastic out there though.  Overall, A+ for certain.  I loved it!

The plastic one's came from Coca-Cola.  Someone in the club's brother in law worked in the shipping department.  I'm struggling to remember who at the moment.  Getting old sucks.  I got one truck and trailer load from him.  John Theiss got some for Young and I took some to Cliff Drive.  Old Pike got the rest because I didnt have room to store a bunch in my garage and none of the other courses would claim them.  I believe he said we could have as many as we need that the polar bears dont get.  The plastic ones can be brittle and break, but they're lighter and you don't need a tetanus shot to handle them.

Agreed.  They don't look nice, but they are WAY easier to empty as well, and less prone to be used by the individuals who think it may be their hot plate...

If someone knows the placements on here I can find the distances and tell ya par.  I just don't know the placements for the CoF as of right now.  I saw that 18 is short (YAY!) that saves about 10-15 minutes per group on that hole.
