General Banter / Wide Open Workday request April 22
« on: April 18, 2006, 08:47:31 PM »
Folks,

I need your help getting the course ready for the Wide Open.  I have many
projects that will need to be tackled this upcoming weekend, that we can get
started on.  I need to have people to help advise others, people that konw how
to drive machinary (we have access to a few machines all weekend, so even if you
can not make it on Saturday, Friday or Sunday would be great as well.)

Please come out and help this weekend, we can truly make a difference on the
course this weekend,  we are fast approaching the phase to get tee-pads
installed, and this weekend could go a long way towards getting us to that point.

Let me know how you to can be a part of the vision.

Thanks,

Jack

« on: April 04, 2006, 10:16:16 PM »
I will try my best to get up the stats for the league as Becket brings in the scorecard information.  We had 27 players out there tonight, and Becket got a $1 hitting the flag on #7.  Arturo finished strong, birdie'ing his last 6 holes to shoot the hot -11, 5 Women played, and Suzette beat Tavish by a stroke!  The advanced field was tight as well, as a three way tie for 2nd place made it hard, but Nick Parks shooting a solid 54 took care of first.  Brian Gammon and Kelly Warren pushed themselves to a tie at -3, and Dan Cashen felt cheated as he wanted to be in the Masters division as well, and shooting a 47, his knee seems to not hinder his perfomance any longer, now if only the person running league would listen to him!!
:)

Everyone had a great time, enjoying the 65 degree weather, mostly sunny, with winds moderate out of the SE @ 6MPH

Cliff Drive / New holes
« on: April 03, 2006, 11:04:22 AM »
After coming off the cliff please follow the trail out.  I plan on marking it with Orange tape today.  You will then play on the new pad on the side of the hill, not crossing the road yet.
The cross the road and play as you have for the next 2 holes.   You will play the shot coming up the hill, and then go past the hill that created a blind shot.  You will see the tee-pad.  You now play from there to the next hole.  Essentially combining the two holes.  Then back to the regularly playing course for completion.

Thanks,

Jack

Cliff Drive / Cliff Drive Projects
« on: January 09, 2006, 11:49:59 PM »
Here is a list of items that could be done by some fine people that have time to donate to the great cause of building Disc Golf, and giving back to the courses:

All-Lay the bricks for tee-pad markers
All-Pull honey suckle out
(From Holes #6-17-go NUTS, but make sure you know what Honey Suckle looks like)
All-secure trash cans at teeing area so they can't be used as soccer posts, tire barrel fire pits, spin the dog down the hill rides, target practice (I can't hit a basket)
All-Paint Trash cans P&R Green, work with them on this, getting a stencil of the club logo with P&R logo (Guess that would be me huh?)

#1 Clean Tree on #1 of Poison Ivy
#1 Clean Bushes around #1 & #18 of the Trees growing in them
#1 Take Down dead Tree (need Parks help)

#2 Clear Trees on #2 and #18 of HUGE IVY VINE

#3 Clear out around Reservoir of Trees thin like other side of basin

#6 Work on hole for #6 (new teeing area)
#6 Continue to clear out #6 new teeing area
#6 Replace #6 Basket temporarily
#6 Trash and Tree Removal on New #6

#7 Remove debris by #7 pad of old cuttings
#7 Stairs down stronger path and tree removal on #7 new path to 8

Remove dead honeysuckle hole #7 new path
Remove dead honeysuckle hole #7 new path
Remove dead honeysuckle hole #7 new path

I think that made it in don't you? :)

#8 Work on stairs on #8, need a permanent solution for here
#8 Clear out area of trash
#8 Removal of all downed brush out to Chestnut down by #9 pad
#8 Clear out itch weed out of "alley" on #8, tear up grounds need tractor in this area, possibly build out erosion area and stari placement with big enough machine

#9 needs the North area of basket cleared, remember the old hole, if you can the teeing area needs to become an alternate place
#9 improve uphill climb with better stairs
#9 try to remove dead vines, NOT THE JAMIE BERRY WAY-don't hang on them and swing!!
#9 clear out the trees to the right area that has not really been touched, bring this and all debris down towards road (Chestnut)
#9 clear out for Crazy Vertical shot on left up the STEEP Cavern (after Wide Open)

#10 is changing, need to move tee pad to area past the hill, taking away blind shot, clearing out the teeing area currently for #11 and making the #11 basket the "new" #10 basket.  Work with CC for this project.

#11"new" work with Water Department at finding alternate pond shot, and utilizing the creek running through new idea, or.......plan a new path across the area where #11 is currently, then work back to path up to #12
Find or imrpve existing stairs up and out of "Down Under"

#12-start to work on new teeing area on W of road, back past the current tree line, will need to build above grade and level this area
#12 basket clear out deeper, replace old sleeve that has been hit, or see if it can get bent back
#12-continue to cut back to the rock, and clear out all debris and downed limbs to make "mower friendly" and build trail along rocks to #13 pad on hill
#12-work on new placement deeper than current location behind the burm, which means taking the honeysuckle out to the road go Deep, will find a home.  If you can see to #8 pad from there slightly, that would be cool, driving through the park, coming on a tunnel shot for disc golf, would make some cool scenery and beautiful shot, this section of the course can be some scenic disc golf for us

#13-clear out the hillside to the E & W of all honey suckle, and thin out to see road on hill even during summer, go with the Brandt Pfister rule of clearing it out and going to town on this area.  We want Trees left, but the Honeysuckle bushes can go
#13-remove trash from above area in question
#13-clear out the area for Party "Session" and fill up hole in that area
#13-get the "stage area on above Party area cleared out for stage presence and other opportunities
#13-Continue to clear out area towards #15 basket for easier "mow" and better vision to long placement
#13-replace bent original placement
#13-clear out all brushes out to the wall of the W of fairway, make "mower" friendly, or at least completely easy to see through, this includes removal of all downed brush that has been down over the years

#14-Clear out Honey Suckle to the S of the fairway, remove existing downed brush
#14-work alternate pad to the SE of current location upon completion of the honeysuckle removal and another slight tunnel shot
#14-continue to BP the teeing area, and work down to the lower level for the rock to be seen by all who drive by, even on Lexington

#15-clear out area to the E of Pad down to #13 fairway
#15-clear path to "Platform area" on #13 for staging area
#15-find deeper pin placement utilizing the new path to the staging area, build around to create bigger mowing circle

#16-continue to clear out trees from the reservoir
#16-new pin placement between trees

#17-CRAZY IDEA if we lose #11, and don't find an alternate way out, do we bring back in the toss across the street where we had a hole before that many loved?  Take it deeper towwards Prospect point, or down that hill, and make it a 250' par 3 unless you hit a HUGE lefty hyzer?  We then have the road to go across agin though, but I have heard many miss that shot, and it still keeps another short shot in the mix where the hillside comes inplay but not so much-again see CC first on this, lets see if we can get new #11 in first

#18-see #2 about removal of IVY on BIG trees

As you can see there is a lot of action items that I would like to see done.  This is about the best idea that I can come up with as I have been playing it through my mind.  Anything that anyone can do to help with this will be greatly appreciated.  All I ask is that when you do so you post here what you did, and how much time you spent in the park.  I want to let the P&R know what amount of hours we spend in each park if possible.

If you should have any questions please let me know.  We have a lot of work to do on getting this course ready for the visitors of the Wide Open, they will be treated to some tough and challenging golf.  I am not sure if we will get tee pads in prior to the event, but we may, I would like to plan as if we are not going to, and thus the reasoning behind the layer of the rocks on the pads.

We will once again have the Great American Cleanup in the park in April, and what to have plenty of work for that wonderful help to bring the course an even better look for 2006.

Thanks,

Jack
