General Banter / WaterWorks Hole 17
« on: July 15, 2014, 03:22:52 PM »
This was partially brought up on the Midwest Amateur Championships discussion, but I didn't want to thread drift.  Whilst playing the July 4th superclass round, an approach was made to hole 17's long right basket down by the road.  The shot went long and over the street/parking lot pavement and landed in the dirt/grassy area that is part of hole 12 (we call it the peninsula placement for 12).  While this is typically played as out of bounds in leagues and such, the comment was made that technically there is not a defined OB line to make that out of bounds.  Theoretically the line extends from the basket north towards #13's fairway, turns right at the end of the pavement, hangs another right and then comes back towards the basket.  I do not believe that there is a line extending to those backyards over there for OB; the line follows the pavement per the last sentence.  We know that hole 9's fairway is certainly OB, but what about across the street on the backside of hole 12's peninsula green?  Tis the question:  WAS TANK OB OR NOT?!?!?!

Man no shout out for five birds in a row from 9-13?  ??? Haha I had a great time despite a rocky start.  I LOVE the course being maxed out like that, but realize it can't stay that way for long.  Wish I could've stuck around to congratulate Loomis, I figured a 7 or 8 would be a REALLY hot round an 47 is about as good as it gets out there on that setup.  Thanks for running it Rob!

KC is free to play except for Old Pike up in the Northland which is $5 per day daily fee.  I'm not sure what kind of courses you are looking to play, but we have quite the selection.  If you're looking to stay close to the city-center, then WaterWorks is a must play in addition to Cliff Drive (best courses in town in my opinion).  If you're on the Kansas side of things, head out to Olathe and play Lakeside and Prairie Center (also Wyandotte County Park is in Bonner Springs if you want to stretch out your arm a bit).  If you're looking on the east side, give Wilbur Young Park and Legacy Park a shot (Blue Valley as well if you REALLY want to stretch out your arm).  If you don't want to drive between courses and have time to make it up to Smithville, play the three courses up there that wrap around Smithville Lake.  They are AMAZING courses and will certainly live up the expectations you have for Kansas City Disc Golf.  Enjoy!

Maybe you should check the 2013 year Steeler.  That's when RamNSalmon was played at PC and Old Settlers was played at PC/Birdland.  This is 2014 making 2013 the most recent - get with the times!

It's not cancelled yet, it has just been postponed.   I want to still run it, just having trouble settling on a weekend.

You should postpone it until Stocksdale is in the ground, then make it a Young Park/Stocksdale tournament.  Just my .02

You can call it the Wilbur Dale Hillbilly Huck ;)

Yeah then the following weekend hold a tournament at Birdland and Prairie Center.  We can call it the Lakeside Center Uppity Chuck.

General Banter / STL Disc Golf

I'll be in STL this coming weekend and have window Saturday morning for some DG.  I'll be staying in the Lake Saint Louis area, so probably don't want to drive 45 minutes to go play JB.  Has anyone played the new course in Chesterfield (Logan University) or the other new course up in Foristell (Indian Camp Creek)?  I've played Quail Ridge before.  I know that Sioux Passage and JB are probably the best in town, but not sure I want to drive that far.  Opinions?

BUMP - Eastern Front?  Is it happening?  Once Stocksdale is in the ground I sure hope we can start having events on the east side of town for a change...

I also plan to be there.  I have two zephyrs, but they do not do the same thing.  If someone needs one, they'll get the flippy one  ;D

The course is in the ground. It's free to play at any time.

Except for Jayhawk fans.  $5.

Should have made you pay double for league last night for that comment!!

Ha!  Course looks great, thanks for running league Van.  I know it was a handful last night.

I will get Chains off one of my baskets that was destroyed at Cliff for just such an event.  Doug asked me about it yesterday.  I will try to grab the chains out of my yard tonight after league and get them on there tomorrow.  Thanks for bringing it back up. ;D

Bump status.   ;D

Doug is doing a GREAT job out there.  As an FYI, the course was being mowed yesterday and was looking AWESOME.  I presume they'll finish the rest up yet today.
