4, short
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)

13 short (will be putting in a new LONG soon though)

moved 10.....didn't try 11, 17 wasn't going, but I did not have my junk that I use to loosen the locks.  The problem with Cliff's locks is that they are never moved, we don't have a lot of multiple pin placements, and when the locks sit idle, they harden, so they need somje TLC.  I plan on working on it today Dan, just for you!

I also plan on working at the new hole #1 today, I want to clean it up fromt he trash, finish securing the ties, and start to think about a way to cross.

P&R will start to deliver rock either today or tomorrow, and will be working on the pads over the next couple of saturdays.  They got approved OT, and it makes them all so happy.  My plan is to work with them to develop a stronger clearing on #7 and then remove more of the rock from the face on #8. 

We shall see!!!

Changes coming, and the Mighty Mo will have tee pads this year.....really....I mean it for realz....

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 / Re: RE: Memorial to the murdered woman (Denise Williams)
« on: February 26, 2009, 01:28:58 PM »
Keizer, Let me know who the supervisor was that "authorized this" as that is not the case and in fact it had been asked to be removed by the director of the park on many instances. 

What I would like to do in lieu of this is to work with the people that knew Denise and plant a tree in the area with a plaque acknowledging their support.  Some type of memento that does not look like a cut up wooden cross.

I would not want the club to buy this, but would be willing to work with the family at coming up with some type of idea to make this happen.

Let me reiterate though the P&R at no time authorizes any type of display like this in any parks, and are encouraged to have it removed as quickly as possible. 

This is the plan that I came up with after speaking with my ex brother inlaw whose sister passed in the desert about 15 years ago and every year their family makes a pilgrimage to the spot, so lets make it something that works and give life to us all.

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....

That was my plan....I have not heard back from the P&R yet, but here is what I was told yesterday morning.

You guys should have gotten the rock with the lumber, that was my bad.  I can bring it whenever you need it.  I will find out if they will pour on Saturday, you guys got finishers right?

So I groaned, and sent a letter off to the P&R asking them to please put the rock in the box for us, I have volunteered to go out on Thursday if need be, rock in the rain is not a problem....

will keep you all posted as I learn the events.

I will follow up with the P&R.  I got all the lumber to my house last night, I forgot your grill Dan, which is by #1 still.

I'll let you know what I find out from the city.  I had asked yesterday if they could do a Saturday pour, but they thought that we were finishing, and I sent a note yesterday asking them to bring in the gravel, and place it, since they had more machines.  I have Thursday afternoon where I am to go to Thornfield, but if I need to be at Cliff on Thursday to make this happen I will.

Will keep you posted.  THanks for fixing it!

Jack
