Thanks to Harold and Ron for convincing me to throw my $$$ towards the ace fund this weekend!  Sorry I swiped half of yall's money, but I have made a couple Traveling Leagues, so I'm not a complete outsider.  If I had every friday off, you can bet I would be at a lot more. 

Anyway, if it is any consolation, I will provide some beverages for an upcoming Friday League, hopefully one I can make :D

I think that area looks possible from above on google maps.  I have not personally been out there, but from the map, it looks like there is plenty of room for a course, and it is a great location for OP residents.  I would be surprised if the Golf Course would let you put some holes on their land, but I don't work for them ;)  Maybe you could convince them.

Let me know what the city says when you email them.

The City trimmed all the trees at Lakeside after our initial course setup. I told them they pretty much ruined 8, and their response was "most people aren't as skilled as you and your club members".  ::)

I went on to explain to them that now instead of a tricky birdy oppurtunity, and if in or behind the cedar a sometimes tricky 3, it is now an easy birdy, or a boring 3 every time.


This was my favorite hole at Lakeside.  Played about 5 times, (3 birdies, 2 bogies).  Great hole.  So disappointing >:(

Camping mandatory.   ;)

But there is a chance I may go.

Whatever kind of minis or clinics you guys have, probably lots of people (myself included) will show up for.  That will certainly increase activity. The only problem I see is it probably won't make a much higher quality of disc golfer in Kansas City. Usually when people go to an activity like that they get one or two good tips. Then they go right back to what they were doing. The thing I think helps me the most, and Kevin talked about it, is if you would each take a small group (3 or 4 people) and play a round with them. If I get pointers in a actual round setting that is where I learn the most. But I understand that is a large chunk of your time.  Maybe if you had a clinic and enough pros showed up that they could work with 3 or 4 people that would be awesome. Any of you guys can teach me anytime. :)

I totally agree with this and what everybody else is saying.  I don't see why we can't run a clinic before a league, and then split up and put a pro with 3-4 ams for the round.  I learned most of what I know just by watching other pros throw different shots.  Watching what they do with their body, feet, breathing.  If you pay attention you can learn a lot, but you still have to go practice it....a bunch.


Easy killer.  You could use some new plastic, I've seen you throw what you've got now and it ain't pretty...  ;D

 please elaborate? are you saying I crush you with ugly plastic?

Oh Snap!!

Rosedale / Re: Mixed Safari Up Top Down Under
« on: March 25, 2014, 08:00:49 AM »
Has anyone played or come up with a mixed safari mash course of up top and down under?

These were my thoughts this evening:

Up 1-5 (5 holes)
Down 9-17 (9 holes)
Up 6-12 (7 more)
21 hole lay out.

Or, if you really wanted to stick with a total of 18:

Up 1-5 (5 holes)
Down 9-17 (9 holes)
Up 6, 9, 10, 11 (4 holes)
18 hole layout.

Up 5
Down 9-17
Up 6-12, 18
18 holes

Up 1
Down 1-10
Up 6-12
18 holes

Yes, back when Ben and I use to run Rosedale league, during the Summer Solstice, we would play 1-5, and then go down for (what use to be) 10-18, and then back up for 6-18, for a fun 27 hole round.

I have done that quite a bit during mid-summer when the evenings are longer, or if you are slowing waiting on a bunch of slow-pokes, hop down-under for back 9, back up and finish, for a 27 hole total.

Also, if you can play Rosie early in the morning before the course gets crowded, there is an (up-top) 18 hole-par 70 bomber layout.

What do you think about having these at leagues? I think rotating leagues, or doing monthly minis with clinics might best help drive membership but am open to suggestions.

 both are great ideas... we should get some club rotating monthlies going too!!!

I'm all in!  Let's get something set up for Mid-April.

I work 3 blocks from here at YRC Freight.  Just last Friday I set up my basket for putting practice over the lunch hour.

Rob, I think you are talking about Roe Park, which OP was thinking about putting in a course.  Unfortunately there is  not enough room there for a course with all the softball and soccer fields.  Too much of a liability.  So OP is looking into another area.

The course that is going in Prairie Village is at Harmon Park, at 79th & Mission Road, right by PV pool.

Supposed to get out there and work on exact layout this week or next.  Whenever the weather will start to cooperate.  Hopefully get something in the ground by this summer.


June 4 – Lakeside - 5:45 check in, 6:00 tees

Perfect Placing of Lakeside, the Wednesday right before the KC Team Challenge!

Yeah I was kind of shocked they are doing one at Pomona.  I like that course (mostly).  It's best to play in the spring.

I'm wondering what they are going to do with the hole that shoots over the playground and then the three holes directly after that which have very narrow fairways with the tall grass.  I'm hoping they convince the Corps of Engineers to widen those 3 fairways a bit and do an alternate pin / teepad for the playground hole.  Otherwise, I really do like that course.

Agreed.  That playground hole is a bit dangerous, if other people are using the park, which I am sure there will be.

And some of those fairways are a bit tight.

The spring 2014 PDGA will be a rotating course league.  I'll post more information later when I have some time today / this weekend.


Don't worry bout all the cry-baby haters Rob...If you build it, they will come. 
I'll participate in as many as possible.

I'm sure it will be a 2-rounder at Centennial. 

FYI,  The day after this tourney, Sunday June 1, there will be another DD B-tier just south of Lawrence/Topeka at Pomona Lake.  Pomona Open ;D
