As the person that wrote the grant to get the additional funding let me state what I stated in the grant:
$25,000-to finish the existing disc golf course at Blue Valley.
--This would use those funds available to install the alternate teeing areas for the original course, bring in some trees, and shrubberies where appropriate as the people see fit. (Dan and Jim)
$50,000-To install a "red course-Red baskets, red tees" within the Eastern or Western half of the park. Using some of the same terrain and land, but adding to the park a course that is more manageable within the scope of most people for casual golf. It will still feature tough challenges and utilize parts of the park that are not being used, and some that are.
$50,000-to install a "blue course-Blue Baskets, blue tees" within the Western or eastern half of the park.....blah blah blah..
What I want to do is to essentially have 4 courses within the park, at any time you could be running 2 courses. Red-Blu, Silver/Gold-executive.
We should call the big course Silver, because the baskets will be silver, and then if we end up with other color baskets.....you see where this is going.
You could also casually be able to have players on all 4 courses and increase participation for the courses/park to improve the quality.
I am not sure where this stands currently, as I have not heard from the funding group about it, but rest assured-
Blue Valley is NOT being reconfigured. It is NOT being pulled out. It is NOT being taken away and dummied down!
IT IS BEING LOOKED AT TO IMPROVE and utilize the land that is not being used, and incorporate the existing land to make it a huge showcase if approved.
Folks should realize that even though we have a good course at Blue Valley there aer many holes that I had used that are not in the mix of what Jim and Dan decided. I would guess that over the 4 years before that park went in when I got the funding for it that I had created close to 90 different holes.
Some do mirror what is out there, and some does not. This will be a chance to use some of the holes that many of you may remember, and yet again give us a better opportunity to help infuse a park with more appropriate activity, without having to pay a hall pass to visit a lake!
Hope this helps some people's understanding.
