Too SMALL

it is only 74 acres as a park land area, and that includes parking, the tennis courts, the ponds......how would you share that with the rest of the public?

I guess Rosedale is too far from there as well?
 ;D

You need to ideally have 40 acres of land for a disc golf course, you can squeeze one in on 20-25.  Here is a few examples of the land that we have courses in though:

Swope-1805

WaterWorks-57.68 (notably this park was not used for anything besides a basketball court, and 1 playground, unlike Loose Park, which is used for multiple venues)

Cliff Drive-303.51

Blue Valley Park-238.50

Hidden Valley Park-174.43

The more that you can do to help ensure that the neighborhoods that you wrok with, and all parties involved are notified about disc golf the better.

I personally think that we should have done a better job at SM park discussing the area witht he model rockets area to ensure that all areas are given a fair chance to ensure that there is not a conflict with the groups.

Seems silly to me in the article as a 195 acre park can not find 10% to use that avoids the other.  I think that a design area should be re-evaluated.

But hey, we have our own little problems here in town!!

Just a reminder we will be at River Market, might be closer to 8:15 for  a start, as we have league play that I am running.

See you then!!

Thanks,

12 is not a par 4.......

City of Foutains will have a different layout for Blue Valley, watch for some changes coming for the World's......will it be for the rest of the world, the rest of the time.......unsure, but will make some changes on the course soon.

I have offered to help a few times, and was met with little enthusiasm. 

I offered my disc golf design services for free, and was met with less enthusiasm.

They want to do it their way, it is their park, and it will be less work that we as members need to do.  That is great.  What concerns me is the layout of the "pads" already, and the design that they had, there are safety concerns that people that do not play the sport may come into play.

Once the course is in, I will be more than happy to help, but at this point, the best thing to do is to let them go on with their time table, they will get it opened up as soon as it makes sense for them to maintain it, and make it playable for the public.

They are very organized on what they want to do, so it will not be a situation that the park is ignored.  SM park is not ignored, it is just growing pains, and if you have been out to SM Park lately, you now understand that they are working on this as well, and that dialogue between the club and them has helped.

The same will hold true here at LS, patience.....boy we have added 5 public courses, and one private course to the area in the last 5 years, you would think that there is enough new places to play......

But if you really want to come mow.....Cliff Drive 1, 2, 7, 8, 9, 10 can use it, lemme know, and I'll point you in the direction of what needs to be done!! ;D
