Madison Disc Golf is a top destination in the world.  If you haven't played there in the past, you are missing it.  They have courses that are top notch easily comparable to other great disc golf cities (you know, KC, Des Moines, Charlotte.....).  I would encourage everyone to plan a trip up to play in an event up there.  Mad City comes to mind, but a trip in general is good.

Emporia is doing a bang up job of promoting and helping the sport as well.  The GBO has shown the impact a community of disc golfers can make.  These "smaller sized" cities truly do see the economic impact that our sport has to offer.  By doing so hopefully that trend will continue to showcase that we are in all honesty a traveling "trade show" for disc golf when we come to town.

Kudos to both event planners.  I doubt either of them let us down, though I am willing to bet the weather will be a little nicer to the Northland am event than the sweltering heat of mid KS in August!

Courses will not be as green and lush in Emporia either that time of year so it will play differently than it did last weekend!

Still great news, and kudos to the folks making it happen.

So will hole 6 not be playable at this location until Sunday? 

That is correct, I am hopeful to go out after work tonight and tomorrow and finish the clearing and plant the pin.

any mandos on new 6, or feel free to bushwack through the pawpaws?

I would encourage people to NOT cut trees down, but there will also not be any Mando's on this hole.

Cliff Drive / Work Day Sunday May 10 (2015 goals)

Items to do-based on priority-
Mow holes 2-8
#2-mow fairway all the way to the long placement as well as all along the side towards the West, removing downed trees, careful to not placing anything along the single track trail
--create a better pass through from #2 pin to #3 pad
#3-clear out the entire area around the basket and the side of the hill going up, removing downed trees, and exposing the walls more so
#4-Mowing fairways, clearing out downed trees
#5-Mowing and clearing out the hillside and the green
#6-Mowing fairways.....removing gulley cuts of honeysuckle if possible-complete clearing out the new "long placement"
#7-Clear all along the cliff out of weeds between #8 pad and #7 long basket, start to expose alternate trail at end of the green for Singletrack riders to utilize instead of the green.  (Going past pin and up and reconnect with the trail past the pin, accessible and safer than current configuration)
#8-Clear out more of the long pin green, along the stage and rocks, etc.....

Next priority level......
#1, mow the short pin areas and remove downed trees
Alternate holes, move and spray honeysuckle growths, or remove with shoveling
re grade "fly pads" for flatter stance
#10 clearout the dead tree on the side, use to border long placement roller portection
#11-wait for P&R to spray, but try to chop down weed trees in reservoir
#12-Clean up hill side, (Looks good BTW comparatively to years past!)
#16-Clear out the trees on the inside of the reservoir and get P&R out to clean up.

Next level priority
Get tee pads all backfilled in
Finish the first 2 alternate holes, means clearing out more and planting trees.
New safer stair casing on #4 needs to be done
Bridge to get across the 2 new holes, as well as the new #6 extended, and possibly stair cases for the new hole after #6 extention (though we may be able to move the current stairs from #6, and repurpose them)
Expand hole #4 to get new pad/pins around the corner, then start to get another coming back to the current #5 clear out.
Additional holes beyond new extended #6 (this is going to be 3 additional holes)

Plant trees as approved by P&R and in conjunction with Trails/safety components.

This is an aggressive plan, but one that I hope we can get done.  Help can be used for however long you can be out there!

Reminder, this Sunday and next Sunday that the qualifying rounds will be on at Cliff Drive.

Played it yesterday, very TOUGH layout.

Will be doing some work this week, so that we should be able to play the new long #6 as well.  I would plan on each round being in the 2 1/2-3 hour range out there.  Will try to get some distances on all of it and post this week.  Updated on the Cliff Drive section for layout.

Remember first time is free, each additional "qualification" round will be $3.

FWIW, I shot a 67 yesterday.....Saw Pete crush #17 though and went, drive, upshot on the bank, and putt in!!!

money is still being collected, but with the new trails, and other actions going on in the park placing trees hasn't happened yet.  It will soon.  We have close to $3k for the trees I believe. 

After all the trails and everything goes in and the new holes are ready, it will be better placement.  With the new activity in the park and the new holes, it didn't make sense to place them at this time.

There will be new trees suffice it to say, just a little later than anticipated.

There will be a continuation of the TLC this year as well.

Great point!

I really hadn't thought of that either....

hmmm...you know we have all the #'s for all the courses somewhere because I needed them for the 2009 Worlds, let's see if we can find them and get them out.  It may be slightly outdated with alterations to the courses, but those would be outliers.  Not the norm.
