are those actual placements?  I thought that they were only there to use as a visual to the people in the park to know that we are there.

Thanks,

Prairie Center / poison ivy
« on: June 05, 2006, 12:59:34 PM »
you need to kill the root system and spray it with herbicides.  That is the only way to get rid of the ivy.  Burning it will not get rid of it in its entirity.  The best time to identify it, is in the fall with the leaves of red and kill it then.  The toxins are not as seepy duting this time frame as well.

I dont think that Mike understands.  The distances that have alternate lists should have been to spots that give an angle to the basket, not sure how the par got involved.  

Eventually there will be a shorter course within the big course with alternate pads for all the holes, but that is further down the road.

The program willhave the most accurate information Mike, so be here and play it!!

The info that is up there is old, and the course has slightly changed from that layout.

Cliff Drive / Workday this week
« on: May 31, 2006, 11:07:20 PM »
I plan on being back and working on the course this Thu afternoon-Friday until I get Marley, and Saturday.

Basically this is what needs to get done-
holes #1-8
MOW the grass around the areas and clear out the new growth, weed whackers and mowers should work.

Sink the concrete bricks to be flat with the ground on all pads.

Create bigger, flatter teeing areas for holes #10, #11, #14, #18

Paint the baskets ORANGE for visibility

Plant new pin on #5-F'ing Arturo, will take care of your acehole! :)

Ensure OB is painted correctly, and course is marked for ease of following configuration.

Get Trash cans out to the right holes

Get Practice basket in new area by #1 to the north of the pad closer to the old tee area

That should be about it.  I moved all the baskets last week to reflect

Club Archives / Cliff Drive work needed done
« on: May 24, 2006, 11:49:37 AM »
We will need spotters at the following holes at Cliff Drive-
#2
#3
#6
#12(possibly 2)

Work that I think that needs to be done:
Change baskets to # the right holes
OB painted on roads
Bigger natural pads for the following holes:
#10
#11
#18
They should be dug deeper and leveled as much as possible, if we need to use mulch to them then so be it.
Signage to get out of the woods (up to #7)
Fix tee pad blocks and truly dig deep to bury the stone line of the pads on all tees
Clear out #1 to the north of the pad remove all honeysuckle new growth (city should be by soon to remove downed brush there currently.
Clear out the holes #2-6 so greens are clear, and fairways are lined up nicely
Clear out in front of #8 pad, then along the hill side towards the basket, a mower or big weed whacker should take care of this.
Flags?  DO we want to go that direction?  Or do we want to buy some from DGA for $270 and have tournament use only?
Hammer rebar into the stairs on #3
Better define #5 tee pad
New distances for the following holes:
#1
#2-Long
#3
#4-Short right
#6
#7-up on hll
#8-Long
#13-to old practice basket
#18-new long closer to road not on top of hill

This would be the course configuration for the Wide Open.

Cliff Drive / 5-15-06 League
« on: May 23, 2006, 03:10:00 PM »
yep, but this scared me.  I thought that Arturo hit it again, 3 weeks in a row, it would be time to move the basket to the old teeing area on old #10, we will have a pin up there soon enough, but if he hit that again, MAN!

Just got off the phone with Dan the Man Cashen as he is heading to St. Louis to kick some butt, well him and Jami Danger in the Masters group.

Baskets are set to go in on June 1.  Not before.  I hope this helps

Swope / Course Improvements
« on: May 09, 2006, 09:53:08 AM »
looking great does not mean having the best flags out there for casual play.  @ $180/set we need to make sure that they look good for the event, the regular daily flags should be used and the new ones should only be used for tournament play so that we are not spending $~1400+/yr just on flags for the courses.  We have plenty of flags that are "slightly used" that should be needed for replacements.  We don't have the funds or the support to keep up new flags as we would all like all the time.

Flags do get destroyed, but as I have suggested for years we should have non-specific flags for daily play, then numbered flags for events only.

I do agree the course should look good all the time, but your talking about a course that need little in work and effort when we have 2 courses that need much love and attention right now.

General Banter / Get with it KC!
« on: May 09, 2006, 09:42:20 AM »
the bottom line is that it is almost impossible to have someone running a regular league on the weekends.  There are too many other items that happen for almost everyone.  During the "off season months" we have leagues at Down Under and At Olathe on Saurdays.

During the "prime tourney" season it just has not made sense with the advent of so many events to try and host an event on the weekends.  I for one want to have a rotating league on Saturdays between Cliff and Blue Valley.  The first Saturday of the month would be a kids clinic at the short BV course at 10:00 between May and September, then we can funnel that into the first flight program.  Time just does not allow this to come to pass.  Hopefully things will change, but you can never tell.  

The bottom line is sadly that the best method for the weekend play is through your own friends.  We currently have 7 leagues during the week:
Monday-Olathe-Bob Hyatt
Monday-Cliff Drive-House
Monday-News Players League (Rosedale-Free to all)-Paul Eklund
Tuesday-Swope-Becekett
Wednesday-Pete or Jay
Thursday-Waterworks-Ted Keith
Friday-WyCo-Kevin Montgomery

If you truly can not find a day to make it to one of those nights that is too bad.  I play in many areas, and for the most part very few weekend leagues really happen, most leagues are on the weeknight no matter where I travel.  The truth of the matter is that we are missing a fun doubles night in KC.  We need to have a random draw doubles league at some place, and encourage our newer players to play with the seasoned folks, that is really what we are missing.

The other fact is that with weekend play which course?  Rosedale/Olathe/WW are very busy during the weekend play, and to try to fight through the casual golfer would be hard.  Swope can have spikes of players.  The best solution to this would be Blue Valley, yet not too many people want to play a 3-4 hour round on Saturday for league.

This item has been discussed many times, but not true win win situation has came about from this yet.

Sorry to post such a bad note.

Thanks,

Blue Valley / Blue Valley Test Run 5-13?
« on: May 08, 2006, 02:04:50 PM »
This event has been cancelled due to the recent rain and the continued beautification of the park.  Grass seed was replanted this past weekend, and the course needs to get some more earth time in.  The baskets will not be in the ground on the 10th as previously indicated as well.  Please post to Topica if you can.  Dan will follow up with an alternate date of the course once it is prepared for our walking ability.

Thanks,

Jack

why flags now?  Leave them out so that the course looks great for the WIde Open, that is when presentation really counts.
