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

Cliff Drive / Some Gates Closed during the winter
« on: November 18, 2005, 10:58:55 PM »
Shannon,

I would like the following statement  released to the press.

Effective December 1, 2005, the following entrance gates onto the Cliff
Drive Scenic Byway will be closed to vehicles for the winter, Gladstone
Blvd at the Kansas City Museum commonly referred to as  the Gooseneck, and
the Reservoir entrance. The Paseo entrance and the Gladstone Blvd entrance
at Elmwood will continue to remain open to vehicles during daylight hours
only. During inclement weather all entrances onto Cliff Drive Scenic Byway
will remain closed.  For additional questions, please contact Michael
Herron, Manager, North Region at 513-7500.



I am also thinking that we need to have some workdays at Cliff Drive.  We are planning on using the course for the Wide Open at this point.  We will be creating a new down under hole, with a new outlet out to the street.  We will be combining the current holes 10&11.  Vandals have stolen the chains from hole #6, a replacement set has been ordered.  I am out of town, but plan on moving the practice basket to hole #6 in the interim.  They also removed the chains from hole #7, they used these chains to make a swing, we were able to salvage enough chains to fix #7.

Goals for the course over the winter:
1-better marking of teeing area.
2-Possible pin placement behind tree to south (shorter)
3-Possible shorter pin placement at the shortest point of the grass between the road and reservoir, forcing OB concessions, and making it easier on time and players.
4-Not sure
5-Repaint road Teeing area.
6-Big change, start to work through tunnel shot out of the woods and thin the honeysuckle.  Create trail to the "music stand for bands" (if you don't know what that is you better call me and ask!)  Fix Chains, clean up the area for mowers, leaving enough foilage to try to prevent "Becketing" (errant discs over the cliff onto #12 or #13 fairways below)
7-Clear out more honeysuckle, new deeper placement, Mike Penney trail down.
8-Stairs.  Stairs.  Stairs.  Add mulch in Valley, remove "itchy plants" in ravine, tires, finish back trail, remove dead and cut trees out, spray honeysuckle.
9-Work on new placements.  Where the old tee used to be, re-clear the area to put another pin placement.  Clean Hill out and up to where #10 pad is currently for another placement, reinforce stairs.
10-New pad area just beyond current hill on #10 where blind spot starts.  We will be throwing to #11 basket is currently.
11-New Area you should work with me at development.  This will be teeing off from the East of the BIG DOWNED tree on #11 currently.  We will be playing up a Valley and need to create a new trail and egress points. This is going to be a SUPER cool addition to the course, and will eliminate a spotter need.  It should also address the safety concerns for the errant shot on #10.  You will still of course have to navigate through the trees, but the basket currently on #10 had some people that while working hard eliminated the protective foilage, and now it is possible for a solid shot to hit those on the current #11.  This move will address plenty of issues, but again will take many hours to clear out, the advantage is that we will be close to the road on Chestnut and the debris removal should be swift.
12-Start new teeing area on the "Right" side of the road (West).  No more throwing across the street, this pad will either be in the woods cleared out for the teeing area, or just above the rocks that protect the road on the South end.  We will need to watch the drainage from the underground springs that form during the warm months.  We will also need to continue to clear out the Honeysuckle against the the rock, and build a trail between the current placement and the pad of #13.  The pin on this hole in the original position has also been hit.  I would possibly like to place a deeper pin in the woods to the North of the current spot, and will need to clear out more lumber there of course.
13-Continue to clean up the Honeysuckle, trail with 12, and then start to thin out the area to the East of the current fairway.  Thin out the area up to the basket on 15 as well, and get as much of the soil to start to regenerate as we can for the mowing next year.
14-Clear out a Deeper placement to the SE of the current pin, make the view to the Lake even better, and then continual work on the removal of all the honeysuckle to expose the rock to viewers driving by on the roads to the South.
15-Deeper pin placement with clearing out down to the fairway of #13.  We need to also be mindful of the new teeing area on #6 to ensure protection.  
16-New pin placement to the North of the reservoir.
17-Clean up trash to the North. (This will be an on going battle)  We want to get down to the fence line.  There should be some trails to show up as we clear out the debris.  We can work with the P&R at a development plan to remove the refuse, we may have to close the road, and drop onto the road, and then have it picked up.  This will take a coordinated effort of many groups, and at least IMHO 30 people to make a small dent.  We will erradicate the honeysuckle as we travel, and then create an even more challenging placement with a precarious drop OB of the fence line.
18-Plant trees to replace the dying trees, clean up the bushes, remove ivy from the trees, and bushes, get rid of the mulberry trees growing in the bushes.

As you can see I have high expectations on this course.  We have requested PIAC funds, and are hopeful that they will come in with the need funds to move in some dirt to start to work on the teeing areas.  I have not addressed those as we will once we have funds.

Ok, back to time with Marley and Mom.

Have a great weekend, and if you can, please head to Blue Valley tomorrow.  Kreeger , Cashen and the community need your help.  This may be the last weekend you can get out and help, you will be required to handle Holiday seasonal tasks from now for the next 6 weeks!

Thanks,

Jack

« on: November 04, 2005, 05:13:40 PM »

Blue Valley / baskets gone?-who took them, when will they be back?
« on: September 13, 2005, 01:41:30 PM »
for the time being, probably the next six months while the continual work of the Kreeger Incorporated Disc Golf Operation Design (KID GOD) continues to develop the moguls and new greens towards the betterment of the area the baskets will be pulled.  They have about $7-$8k in grass seed that they will be planting.  To ensure a strong root system we would ask that you play alternate courses, Cliff Drive is close by, and continue to bring friends out to see the new designs and other work that continues to evolve our private paradise in the future.

if you should have any questions, please do not hesitate to call and ask how you can help benefit this beautiful acerage that we will call championship disc golf.

thanks,

jack

Cliff Drive / LSD V Results
« on: September 04, 2005, 07:07:02 PM »
On what was a beautiful day to play some golf, we had 29 teams or 58 people walk the park today.  We had ages from 12-58, and people that bothered to drive in from Omaha just to see the course.  I truly appreciate all that you have done to show up and help make this event grow.  It was great watching everyone have fun in the park with the exception of Jake Bowen dancing around after his partner Fred Smith hit the hole in one on #15, a 300' shot uphill nothing but the chains to take the ace fund and be the big winner of the day.

We should be able to generate close to $250 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and I thank each of you coming out and playing.

Cliff Drive / Upcoming Events At Cliff Drive
« on: August 16, 2005, 10:41:55 AM »
I will be working on the course the next few days.  Heading out there today from 12-4, and tomorrow from 10-3, possibly Friday afternoon as well.

I will be working on #13, #14, and possibly #6.

We willbe having the Lion's Den Event (Birthday Bash for Dick and Jack, and all other Leo's on Saturday, sponsored by New Belgium Brewery.  $10 for the food, beer, and soda's, and casual round, then an additional $10 for custrom discs Roc/Aviar, or $12 for a Pro-line Starfire sponsored by Koi Discs.

Round starts at 10ish for morning, then we typically play a doubles round in the afternoon.

If you can come out to help let me know.

We will also be hosting the Lance Stanton Doubles Event on Sunday September 4(Sunday of Labor Day Weekend-No work Monday for many!), A PDGA XC Tier, bring your own Partner.
Entry Fees-
$20/person-Open
$10/Person-All other Divisions

Round 1-Best Shot-Tee Off-10:30
Round 2-666 format

If no Aces hit CTP at end of second round for 1/2.  This has historically been a fund raiser for Cystic Fibrosis, but I have dropped the ball in getting additional sponsors, so it will probably be limited in prizes this year, I will see if I can get Chief Tickets as we have always had, but have little time to get things together at this point.  If interested in helping out with the event, pleae let me know.

Thanks,

Jack

Blue Valley / Course descriptions-jacks take
« on: July 12, 2005, 11:04:29 AM »
1-probably close to 700', across a valley, on the backside of a hill for the first basket, road ob behind the basket about 100' away(par 4)
2-downhill 500' shot, with road ob behind the basket, about 90'(par 3)
3-througha valley and up hill higher, landing zone about 400-500' then another 300' foot shot, water OB to the right (par 5)
4-open fair way first 1/2 300-400', then through wooded area dogleg left across little valley (par 4)
5-Uphill shot about 330' road OB behind basket about 150' (par 3)
6-across Valley again, tight trees give about a 50' window from tee area hole probably ~350' current green slightly protected by trees (par 3)
7-Downhill shot about 650', road OB to the right green on side of hill (par 3)
8-Across Valley about 550', road OB to the right, Wall of Trees line to the left, basket on side of hill, location KEY (par 4)
9-Up hill across a valley to the landing zone ~350-400', dog leg right about another 350', nestled just outside of trees, with wodded area to the right, this combines two hole that we have used in the past (par 5)
Front 9=Par 34
10-uphill through tree line back towards the disc golf shelter, relatively straight on shot, but uphill and about 600' away, the top of the hill is about 550' away, so making it there, you need someone with a CRUSH, elevation on uphill plays a role, as basket is not visible after leaving the tee area (par 4)
11-Down hill about 600' in a cul-de-sac for a green, protected by trees all around, MONSTER arms will get it there to get a view the ret of us humans will try a tomahawk to get over the trees on the second the shot (par 4)
12-Back uphill towards shelter, Tough uphill shot about 550', gree protected by a couple of trees (par 4)
13-Downhill monseter about 900' with the green on the edge of the hill, to a severe drop off, then road OB about 80' behind it (par 4)
14-across the road tee area, road OB left, Woods right, trees in front, only about 450', but winding fairway and tight location make this a tough one (par 3)
15-across Valley, trees to left, road OB right, green sits on rocks about 90' away from road (par 3)
16-back up hill about 500' trees protect the fairway on both sides, and green sits atop the hill, with possibility of roll if short (par 4)
17-about 1000'-across a valley and up 2 tiers, getting to the shade in 1 is great, getting up the hill for the second shot is solid, then hitting the green, road OB on the left basket underneath 2 trees (par 4)
18-Tee through a wall of trees with a few openings (about 1000' again), then heading UPHILL continue to throw with along a valley with angles to the left of the hills. Road OB right and more importantly left. Green is on a peninsula of grass with crazy angle, location of your 4th shot for par is CRUCIAL. (par 5)
Back 9=35
total Par=69

This course is a blast. Take from a weak armed guy that can barely hit 300'. I have been able to get it further on the downhill shots, but if you want to challenge your disc golf game, get up here this weekend

Cliff Drive / Wish List before City of Fountains
« on: July 12, 2005, 02:00:19 AM »
I went and played Cliff Drive last night, and wanted to get a wish list of items
that people should work on prior to the event.  If you have any time to help,
some of these are rather simple, some are tough.  I konw that Brandt said that
he was going to head out on Wednesday, as did Jamie B, alas I have a tight
schedule this week, and will not be able to attend these working days so if you
can help, please contact House if you need tools:

1-Tee markers in the ground, remove ivy from trees
2-Remove Ivy from BIG trees (shared on 18 as well) I cut these earlier, but you
can see it back now.
3-would like to have Flag attached for better visibility

Tournaments / Cliif drive before City of Fountains
« on: July 12, 2005, 01:59:44 AM »
I went and played Cliff Drive last night, and wanted to get a wish list of items
that people should work on prior to the event.  If you have any time to help,
some of these are rather simple, some are tough.  I konw that Brandt said that
he was going to head out on Wednesday, as did Jamie B, alas I have a tight
schedule this week, and will not be able to attend these working days so if you
can help, please contact House if you need tools:

1-Tee markers in the ground, remove ivy from trees
2-Remove Ivy from BIG trees (shared on 18 as well) I cut these earlier, but you
can see it back now.
3-would like to have Flag attached for better visibility
5-Would like to secure alternate pin setting between trees, and remove ivy from
trees
6-clean behind the basket area, House and team started a great job, just needs
minor weedeating
7-remove brush from hole, or get a stack going (Jamie B's hole, he may be on
it!)
8-Gulley needs cleared, south side of hill continued weedeating
9-Not much, maybe up around top, or continue towards gulley clearing

Tournaments / City of FOuntains Classic NEEDS YOU!
« on: July 08, 2005, 11:53:21 AM »
Like courses in Kansas City, welcome to Blue Valley, think Water Works on Steroids, and Cliff Drive, think cross section of all KC courses.

Blue Valley Disc Golf Center-23rd & Topping KCMO
Cliff Drive Disc Course-Lexington & Prospect Ave KCMO
We want to showcase these courses for the first time, and even in
the rough state that they are in, being new and no concrete pads for us spoiled
types, they will truly shine as another great addition to our stable of courses.  
Please come out to help.

Along those lines, pass the word that the event for next Saturday is ON!  be at
Cliff Drive between 8-9 please for registration:
All fees do NOT include an additional Non-PDGA member fee of $5 if not current
Open-$62
All other Pro divisions-$42
Am Divisions
Adv divisions-$37 (Masters/Grand Masters..etc....)
Adv Women-$32
Intermediate-$27
Novice/Recreational-$22
All current KCFDC members receive a $2 discount.

There will be a players package for all amateur divisions that will be quite
nice, and Budweiser thats right folks Bud will be donating 2 kegs for the party
afterward.  House and Steve Hoog will be cooking at Blue Valley between rounds
for a free lunch as well, and there should be added cash of at least $200 for
the Open division, and possibly $100 for each pro division beyond that.

We have also made strides for Shawnee Mission Park, as we will be having an
event out there, similar to league on August 13.  We need help on the workday
the weekend prior of August 6, and then baskets for the following weekend.  
Contact Dirk Hacker at 816.678.4468 for more information, but entry will be no
more than $10, play one round, have a lunch, then move a few baskets to play
another layout and play round 2.  Ed Gonzales and Dirk Hacker have spent quite a
bit of time working on this project, and the funds are in, so lets get a design
that works for all of us in a Johnson COunty park that sees a ton of people.

Lance Stanton Doubles are right around the corner as well, remember to find your
doubles partner, as this event for Cystic Fibrosis comes on the Sunday of Labor
Day weekend, at Cliff Drive.

Well, I am heading out to Cliff Drive to do some work, if you are reading this
you probably can't help today, but please come out tomrrow to help at one of the
courses.  I am going to try and play a round at Blue Valley today ~3:30, should
be done by dark then!  Come on out and lets play the newest course, as the
baskets are in, tee markers are up, and Kreeger and Penney have husteld it in
for a great new BIG place to play~
