Just soz you know and prolly ebody already does...which makes the fact that PHill isn't in the PDGA directory and the fact nobody knows why very silly, PDGA has a cool app to find courses.  On the other hand, you won't have to worry about a tee time if strangers don't know about the course ;D ;D

Perhaps this has already been discussed, but why is P-Hill not on the PDGA course directory?

I second Renaissance Park; Willis Park, Alpharetta; The Sinks, Chattanooga; Cedar ?Rock? State Park, Burlington, NC (2 courses); Meeman Shelby, Memphis (2 courses) and Bud Hill (private) if you can get a local to show you the way and get you in; Cedar Hills, Nashville (if you have time after 7oaks); Smyrna, TN (don't remember the name but bring your big boy game); Barfield Crescent, Murfreesboro (fun and fairly quick round unless you play twice ;D).  Shall I go on?

disc technology has definately overshot the design aspect of the game.  I think that the disc mfg's and the PDGA are solely to blame for this error in our sport.  If we had the space that golf courses utilize this would not be as big of an issue, but our space in parks is limited.  I wonder how the PGA has orchestrated courses through the evolution of better club design and ball technology over the years.

I have thought about this being a major issue in our sport, but this is driving me to take a look at the growing pains that golf may have discovered......
You still gotta put them on target.  Course design, not length, will keep the disc technology relevant.

Yes, there certainly is a place for super easy holes. California Trails comes to mind. It's excellent for the kids. Though it might actually be a bit too long for them.

These super fast, extra long flying molds are making many courses obsolete. I have been thinking lately of a new format; limited disc speed class.  No discs over a certain speed may be used in the event. Just a thought
Super Class or putter only

The worst hole has not yet been put in...for that matter, neither has the best; it's why we keep playing 8) 8)

When will the other practice basket be put back? 
We need to make sure that, with the cute little "next tee" clamps, the baskets get locked to the chain.  I found (I think it was) #9 unlocked the other day :o

Here's some suggestions to those who plant flora: be SURE to place large rocks around the base.  The obvious is it will help protect from mowers and foot traffic but additionally the rocks will help retain soil moisture during the summer.  It wouldn't hurt to drive a metal (green) stake close to a tree as well; discs are known to seek out young trees as well as deer cleaning their antlers

On #13, I would like to gather more rocks so we can create the "raised bed" around the long placement that Bill and I had discussed. One thing about making retaining walls with rocks is you want to have plenty to choose from.
Tired of rolling away? ;D  Remember the placements are on a slope for a reason...

I'm sure everyone knows about the pile of dead wood that was placed just after #13's long pin to help curb the soil erosion. The one you step over as you walk to #14's pad.

Anyway, I'm looking to get a crew together to help create a nicer erosion barrier and some steps out of the rocks I've already got staged just to the east of #14's pad. Basically we just need to cut a path through the pile of dead wood, and replace the cut-out section with the rocks. The rocks I have up there are the flat yellowish ones you see used in landscaping and will blend in well with the rest of the park's surroundings. I'm hoping our finished product will be both a permanent fixture and safer to walk over than what is currently in place.

I have a chainsaw, pick axe, and shovel I can bring. An extra shovel or two would probably help, and any volunteers should also bring a pair of work gloves if you have them.

If interested, please call or text me at 8one6-59zero-8925 or just post up here in this thread. I'd like to try to get something going one morning this weekend (4/23-4/24), so let me know if you're available. Thanks and take care for now.

Sure hope you're thinking of putting the steps around the left side of the cottonwood.  In addition to erosion control, one line of thinking was to allow that 'hole' to grow over (or plant shrubs) to block the view of #14 bench.
I'm available tomorrow morning for a couple hours.  Call me if you go 816 550-9122

now your story doesn't include indecent liberties with migratory waterfowl?
Or sodomizing squirrels
