Prairie Center / Do I Make You Thorny Baby?
« on: August 23, 2014, 11:11:50 AM »
I spent about two hours removing as many thorns from the trees on hole 12 at PC. I had around 15-20 bucket fulls of thorns that I dumped. Hopefully that makes that hole a bit safer for Old Settlers. I would encourage everyone to still exercise caution around the trees. There were so many thorns I'm sure I missed some. They are also hard to see when they fall on the ground so watch your footing around the trees just in case. If I have time next week I'll go back out and try to do some weed eating and a little more cleanup.

Found and Lost / Lost Saint Pro at PC #2
« on: August 20, 2014, 12:02:52 AM »
Left a yellow Saint Pro there on Sunday afternoon. I was playing with Harold B and a big group of guys. We threw several on hole 2 at the end of our round and I never got this one. Didn't know if one of the guys picked it up or if it got left laying there somewhere. I miss it already. I think it just had AP on it. No number. It was a misprint Saint Pro.

Winter Leagues / Re: September and/or October Wednesday glow?
« on: August 19, 2014, 11:55:18 PM »
I think Lakeside Hills in Olathe would be a fun glow course. Pretty open for the most part. I know Tom uses PC and Birdland on Monday night glow throughout the winter.

I'm wondering why you need lights on the baskets? Is it only to be aware of what location the basket is in? I am just curious. I've never played on lit up baskets until the MAC glow doubles with the blacklight chains, (Which was cool except if you were facing one of the lights, then you were blinded by it.) Never really felt like it was a necessity for the basket to be lit. Just my 2 cents. I would definitly be interested in playing glow on Wednesdays on the nights I am available.

I'll be playing the Old Settlers here in Olathe. But we should totally find out how they got the Coke and Victoria Secret Sponsorship! That might be enough to get my wife to start playing!   ;D

If you're gonna be out there Sunday early afternoon I can make it. I'll find out from my wife if I can be there that morning. And just let me know what other nights you'll be out there. If I'm free I'll come. I don't have much equipment, but I can offer man power.

Any word on drilling new holes for the pins?

I'm with Lee, how is someone who is designated on the pdga classification as a professional and who has multiple wins and an large amount of cash from those wins able to play in an Am only tournament? He wasn't in my division so I'm just asking out of curiosity. Although I would be pissed if I had been beat by him. Just wondering how that works and why it was ok for him (and at least one other open masters player) to play this event.  Again, not a criticism, just asking for clarification.

^^^ I was curious of that as well. Saturday Loomis seemed to be authoritative but not demeaning. However I had three friends playing rec who were playing their first ever tournament. All three dnf'd partially due to the weather but they also communicated to me that they were extremely frustrated and offended by Loomis and his actions and it kind of ruined their round from the start and left a bitter taste in their mouth about playing future tournaments.  I will be emailing DD with their comments.

I did find it interesting though that Loomis gave us Saturday folk the same instruction about a lost disc as the rainy day instructions. One guy in my group lost his disc to the left on hole 8. It wasn't in a dangerous or unplayable area but we didn't find it. I told him the rules stated he had to re-tee but the group members argued that Loomis had said to play it from where it last been seen. So I was overruled. Not a big deal to me, but I know it was not the correct call based on the pdga rules. But it's over now. I think his main concern was more about speed of play that precision rule keeping.

Despite much of the negative comments, I really appreciate all the volunteers and workers who helped out. I felt it was run well the players pack was awesome, party was great, and overall experience for me was good. The only thing I wish was different was having intermediate division awards when their round was over instead of having to wait 3+ hours for advanced to finish. Which I am still not sure how much I won. Is there a way for me to find out? Thanks again for running a fun tournament.

Found and Lost / Re: WaterWorks-Teal FR Judge

Hey Jordan. Your judge is in the lost and found with DD. I saw it in the stack. Just letting you know.

We had a question on Friday about the Mando on WW hole 7. Will the mando be the large tree right in the middle which will force everyone to play left through the gully? Or will the straight up the middle shot still be available?

Cliff Drive / Cliff Drive History
« on: July 26, 2014, 12:51:37 AM »
On Thursday my wife and I celebrated our anniversary by visiting some KC spots tha we hadn't been to before. I finally got to your the boulevard brewery and taste some unreleased selections ( they have a really good spiced saison in the works. Just FYI). Then we drove over to Cliff Drive to visit the Kansas City Museum at Corinthian Hall. I had never been over there except to play the course. I already love cliff drive course because it feels old and has a lot of character. But after touring the Robert E Long Mansion and hearing the history surrounding the park and that neighborhood it made me love it even more. Being  from Olathe all I really see most days is suburb life with very little character and history. Maybe that's why I enjoyed the history lesson so much. If none of you have visited this museum you need to do it! I guess it used to be a science museum but now they are in the process of restoring it to it's original glory. The tour was free and very educational and interesting. I know the rep cliff drive gets is that it's in the ghetto but I no longer view it this way. This course shares a very rich history as part of a Kansas City area that seems forgotten but is very cool. If you are bored some day and aren't out playing I highly encourage anyone who enjoys history, or architecture, or just hearing about how cool our city is to go check this place out. You can find details online.

Will  there be dinner provided at the players party? Any details?

I was wondering if you have a payout table already for this event? I think this is the first time I've ever played an Am only event so I was just curious what that makes the payout structure look like and how many spots get paid. I'm in intermediate. I know that one is full already so I thought you may at least know the structure for that, or a rough estimate. Thanks!
And is rec playing trophy only or do they get paid out also?

I played the ww course tonight and I am an am player. I definitely didn't play as we'll as I should have but I enjoyed the lay out. Even though I'm not a pro I like to be challenged. Waterworks is a course I get to play maybe once a month because I live down south so it's a drive. I think having it set up in a different way evens the playing field for everyone. As an am I don't want to get beat because someone who just plays waterworks or Rosie has mastered it's layout. If I'm going to be beat I want it to be because they were the better player not just because they had home field advantage. So I think that is what is fun about the layout. Yes they would still have 15 holes that they will know better than most but at least it gives me a few holes for us to be on more level playing field. That's my thought anyway.

Thanks Scott for organizing things. I actually have 3 friends from Oklahoma who I got into the sport who will be driving up to play their first ever tournament. Can't wait for them to experience a DD tournament and some amazingKC disc golf. Regardless of whether you like the layout or not, KC is so lucky to have courses where this sort of thing is an option. Might as well take advantage.

^^^^^ What Peter said. dgcoursereview is a way larger forum for that kind of discussion and you will almost always find something about what you are looking for. If not, post about it and you shouldn't lack for info.

Tournaments / Re: 2014 Trilogy Challenge - Swope Park, MO - July 20th

With this even being 10-4 but only one round is it a flex start or something? Just curious about the schedule of the day and how it plays out.
