Cliff Drive / League 3-23-09
« on: March 25, 2009, 10:01:20 AM »
With a calm evening, where 7 trucks were overturned on I-70, we had 8 brave souls show up to play in some of the windiest conditions that I have seen.  I can remember one night at WyCo close to this, but I did not hear about Semi's being blown over on the news that night.....winds gusting up to 50 mph, made for an interesting round.

Arturo-59 (8-4's)
Bobby-61 (5-4's, and a 6 on the Island)
Jack-69 (5-4's, 4-5's, and a 6 on the Island)
Pete-69 (3-4's, 6-5's)
Matt Hummel-70 (7-4's, 3-5's, and a 7 on 16...that Wind up there was FIERCE)
Chappy-74 (well.....4's, 5's, 6's, and an 8)
Matt Hays-78 (4's, 5's, 7, 8)
Dan Truax-84 (4's, 5's, 6, 8'ss....)

So all you fair weathered golfers....DEMIAN.....you are all weak, we are all strong.

Come on out next Monday and see if you get to play in one of the most fun leagues in town

Cliff Drive / Cleaning up the park
« on: March 23, 2009, 10:38:46 AM »
Whilst you play, anything that you can do to clean up the park would be greatly appreciated.  Yesterday I spent about 3 hours out at hole #1 cleaning it up.  Morales and Aaron also helped, and man does it look a thousand times better. 

There are still a few cleaning items and then we have to work on the mowing, and the stairs.  I am hopeful that tee pads within the next few weeks will be completed, and then we really start to assault the park.  There area  few bags of trash along the West end of #5, that I hope to tackle today, then I will put a call out for the BEAST-hole #12, you know it, and I know it, something has to be done there.  The goal is going to be to get all the trash down to the fence line, then figure out a way to move a machine into the area to scoop and remove, that is going to be the only way we get it done.  And while we are at it, we will take some honeysuckle out.  I also want to start to remove all the trees from the wrought iron along the reservoir (yeah I am sadistic with disc golf) so as to beautify the area, not to watch the sheer horror of faces on people as the disc goes floating away in the abyss...

The practice basket is going to go where old #11 pad was at.  I hope to get that moving this week as well.  We need to finish hole #1 box, will be moving it back about 3' with that extra on the ties, it should prevent people from falling off....then need to plant a fwe trees to protect the pad, will probably move the original #10 based on this as well....

Probably am going to move #13 pad in front of the mulberry to bring the last few trees into play, it makes the short setting a lot easier, but a long placement along the road deep will wreak some OB havoc.....great idea Pete, I had blinders on from the old trees, and just really hadn't thought about the usage of the trees out side of the ones that are no longer there.

More to follow, but the course is really looking good, and anything that you can do to help (like picking up 18 pieces of trash-1 per hole) is greatly appreciated, in fact if your only way to help is to come out and play, I'll take it!!!

5 long
7 -- has been moved to its new long position, deeper in the shelf that goes up to the left at the end of the fairway. You can reach this pin either by going up the traditional shelf route, or there is also a line cut through the trees that you can use if you throw to the right of the shelf. Enjoy...*(modified 3-9-09)
8 short
10 middle
11 short (new pad top of hill)
13 short (will be putting in a new LONG soon though)

Tournaments / Mighty MO-May 10th
« on: March 03, 2009, 04:16:26 PM »
WW and Cliff Drive, should be the first event with Tee pads at Cliff (how long have I been threatening to have them there?).

We will start at WW and then off to Cliff in the afternoon. 

I will post details as I come up with the price plan.

RIght now I am thinking about the following-
PDGA-C-Tier
$60-open
$50-Pro divisions
$30-Adv divisions
$20-Int/Jr./Novice

There will be additional fees-
$2/PDGA
$2/Non-KCFDC member fee
$3 Ace fund
$10-non-PDGA fee

There is talk about having a charity event on the 9th @ Cliff Drive for the North East area (Indian Mound Association), I will post more here on that, I realize that there is the prostate event, but it is far away from this event, so I iwll try to ask that you choose what to do, but realize that our time for events is tight, and this date unfortunately was mapped out last December with the organization, based on our plan to have the Mighty Mo the day after the fund raiser.

More information to follow, it should be listed in the PDGA soon, sanctioning has been sent.

Cliff Drive / new holes
« on: February 25, 2009, 09:22:01 AM »
There are new pin placements on the following holes-
#10, middle, tricky green, watch your putts or they will go down the hill
#11, new pad (by the reservoir, top of hill), 2 pins, one short with the road, and hill come into play, and the other is now SUPER long, on the North end of the reservoir.
#17 long island hole, there is a new placement for the pad as well.  Across the road in the triangle.

There are a few differences on the pads in a few locations, but it is getting there.

So come out and play, this course is getting good folks, it is getting close to being ready for prime time players....

Cliff Drive / work weekend 2/21-2/22
« on: February 10, 2009, 09:30:55 AM »
I am planning on starting to get the pads formed up on this w/e.  I'll be grabbing the supplies from the P&R this week or next and then will need help setting things up.  THe only holes that may have to wait will be 1 & 7, and I also want to pick up trash by #1, #5 (top of the hill that has been dumped) and if adventurous, #12.....pipe dream......

I also hope to get the baskets all replaced during this time frame with the actual baskets instead of the practice baskets.

Any and all help would be appreciated, please spread the word.

Lets try 9-3 for a time frame on Saturday, and 10-3 on sunday.

Cliff Drive / changes acoming
« on: January 19, 2009, 12:17:04 PM »
The the new president, in disc golf, and the United states, it only makes sense that we try our hand at change in the dcisc golf community.

So I will do my best and work on the changes at Cliff Drive.

Here are a few if you have not played recently.

1-new teeing area, deeper, and to the south of the older location, look for more work to be done here.

2-cleaning of the side of the hill-new basket soon

3-new lower tee pad, makes an interesting shot now, a RHBH, will have to force a STABLE disc over, and have it flex to get there now, a LHBH, will probably have to tee with a forehand shot.  Thanks to Keizer

4-just keeping it clean baby-new basket soon

5-cleaning up and keeping the hill side open, will need a better stairs to climb though.

path to 5-6 new steps, thanks to Keizer and his man Don

6-keeping it clean baby

7-Look for a new placement way deep in the woods.  The area was cleared out by Keizer, then I went with him to clean it up some more, but this new placement will have a tricky shot for the deep placement, with the road as an OB possible.  Also the Teeing area will likely move north ahead of the water drainage issues, or could move way longer deep.

8-return of the old long placement is coming soon.

9-unsure, but there is a shelf long left of existing placement that I have thought about for awhile....

10-there will be a new placement to the left of the short, but not as long as the long, and place that hill drop off as an issue for the green.

11-new hole configuration coming soon, will be shorter, and the road will come into play.

12-why mess with the devil?  It hurts enough people already.

13-in my best HOMER, BORING, I need to plant trees, and shubbery

14-status quo

15-New placement behind the big tree to come

16-love this hole, doubt anything happens.

17-Tee area to move forward 70'-80', new pin placement on the island to come

18-probably status quo, though it depends on the water fountain going in.

And of course tee pads.  The hope is to form up the boxes this month on all except 1 & 7 which will require extra work, stay tuned as this course gets ready to be disected, and made fun of during the worlds.
