General Banter / ATTENTION INDEPENDENCE DISC GOLFERS
« on: July 31, 2014, 10:23:41 AM »
John Theiss and I have been in contact with Independence Parks and Recreation and have begun discussion about putting a course in somewhere in town.  As many of you know, there is a LOT of work that goes into putting in a disc golf course and it takes a LOT of time and energy to get it done.  Parks and Rec wants to gauge interest in disc golf by having as many Independence disc golfers attend a meeting on August 12th.  The city already has some temporary baskets in storage, so they plan to bring one of those baskets along to the meeting and present it (disc golf) along with what has already been done with regards to a course installation to those in attendance.  So, we need as many Independence disc golfers as possible to attend this meeting and show their support.  I think it is OK for local residents of other towns to be in attendance as well if you feel so moved.  The emphasis, though, is to see how many local players there are and what the need and desire is for a course.

The meeting will be held at the Sermon Center at 6:00 PM on August 12th.  The address for the Sermon Center is as follows:

201 North Dodgion Street
Independence, MO 64050

So, call your friends & family if they play and are Independence residents and do your best to get them to this meeting.  If there is a desire for a course and a core group of residents who will continually support the course and its upkeep, I think we have a good shot at getting a course put in (P.S. I have certainly made mention of the club and KCFDC's efforts in course upkeep, collaboration, etc).  The location is still under discussion, but this is the first step.  I am very excited for this opportunity and am hopeful that you are as well.  I know that the forum will only reach a handful of Independence players, so I need your help in spreading the word.  August 12, 6:00 PM, let's make it happen.

It's also worth noting that the following holes have two "blue" placements:

1, 4, 5, 6, 8, 12, 13, 15, 16, 17 & 18.  I don't think I missed any did I John?

Tyler's map is right with the exception noted above.  Just have to adjust the hole #'s accordingly.

The address is:
901 South La Frenz Road, Liberty, MO 64068

Hey Tyler,

You've combined hole 6 into two holes.  All three of those baskets are for the same hole (two blue and one gold).  The pin that is in the tree stump has to stay put, so that's why it is confusing.  Hole 6 is a public par 5 and pro par 4 to the gold pin. 

Also, a majority of the holes have two blue pin placements.  John may have a better map that he can post on here at his convenience, but the one you posted does show the correct general flow (with the exception of hole 6).

Any thoughts on the new discs?

The putter was called a shield - very overstable.  I think it would be a great driving putter, but a bit too beefy for me to putt with.  The midrange was called a claymore - moderately understable.  I felt that this disc really held the turnover line and did not have any fade.  The fairway driver was a thief - very understable.  This disc most reminded me of a leopard with a little more glide.  I think that all of the discs serve their purpose, although I will admit it was tough to play a full 18 holes with just those three discs.  I had a hard time getting the midrange or the fairway to fly straight (even with a hyzer release) simply because I tend to throw hard and don't lay off much unless I am throwing approach shots.  Just my .02.

nice shootin jordan

Thank you, sir.  Scott is being humble, but he too also shot a 49 (along with one other person who I can't remember their name).  I just happened to throw a little bit better upshot to #2's pin from the deck at the clubhouse.  Great little Sunday afternoon event, thanks to DD for running it and to Lat64, DD and Westside for putting it on!

Friday night doubles at Legacy are always a fun time as well, however, the prices recently went up to $7 making it one of the more expensive leagues.


That extra dollar sure is expensive...  heaven forbid we pay $43 dollars less than a normal round of ball golf instead of $44.

Got hole 1 at Stocksdale tonight. Not sure on the distance, but threw a DD verdict. First throw, first hole. Bowen, Perry and my brother as witnesses.  Course is looking good, can't wait until it's fully complete!!

Nice!  Christening the course already.  Go spray paint the bright blue band - Jordan Hinck, 1st Ace....Jk Don't do that.

Oh I had already written it in white sharpie to make sure everyone could see it.  Wait, is that a no no or something?!?!  ;D
