I think this site looks great.  I have already planned a weeks worth of golf with input from there.

Great idea Chris.

   What if as the league rotated through the courses they could make some accommodation for that league's players? If you played on three courses you would only have to consider it twice during the season.  I would not want to make it complicated.  The league plays doubles that week and contributes to the payout and ace funds? If you played league the first night at the course that has a coinciding mini you could pick up teams that may want to continue in the league. When the league came back around in week three teams that were not regulars wouldn't get the benefit of a handicap, but could still participate.

Who pays for the sub?

Post those work days early so everyone can plan to help out.  It seems like too often the work days are posted so late I can't plan ahead of time to make them.

I think we have a problem.  If you have 35 how can I have 35 currently attached to my bag?  I won it from the guy that drew at the Ice Bowl.  Should we panic? Are there duplicate numbers in play?  ;)

Great idea, and nine days ahead should be ample notification for most of those interested in seeing the Rosedale course be its best.  Everybody has an opinion about what should be done to improve the course, and this sounds like a great opportunity for the most people to participate in shaping that vision for Rosedale's restoration.

Leftys should get some sporadic advantages, since we die younger.  Thanks for the props.

What about minis with with a key ring in them?  I think that is what St Louis uses for tag play.

Swope / Tee Signs
« on: November 18, 2005, 07:53:27 PM »
I think that the pictures signs look cool, but the overhead graphics are much more useful, especially if you have never played a course before (isn’t that who truly uses the signs).  The picture depicts only one time of year while the hole may look completely different depending on the season, and may not correctly associate a dogleg or other obstacle between the pad and the pin.   Also, I am not sure how well the pictures age. If the elements are allowed to penetrate the laminate the picture gets “wavy” and isn’t as useful.  

What about the cost? Are they similar?  I would think that a replacement for a damaged or vandalized schematic such as Rosedale’s would be easier to replace.

I am curious about what people think are the best examples of signage, across the spectrum, and not limited to the two aforementioned types on any course they have played.  This could include wishful thinking if cost were of no consideration.

In my limited experience, the signs in Des Moines at Walnut Ridge and Ewing Park which, as I recall, are similar to the thick textured plastic associated with ball golf signage are very useful and aesthetically pleasing. My guess is that these are very expensive to provide for every hole, and could considerably raise the cost due to the need to include signs at each pad where more than one pad exists per hole.  

I believe that it is Oak Park in Wichita that has the hole depictions painted on the tee pads, and include an arrow pointing toward the next tee.   These are great because you don’t have to extrapolate the information horizontally after looking at a vertical sign.  I think the tee pads are coated with something to protect the paint on the pad. Those may be more susceptible to vandalism, but don’t require any poles which looks nice.

This is just some random (rambling) thoughts about signs on my part.  This was obviously not meant to offend those who are enamored of the picture signs nor is it to suggest the club spend exorbitant sums on new signage.

That's the spirt, Tim.   I don't care where we play.

I suppose that the time has come to break my vow of silence, and post to this topic while hoping that I don’t sound like a petulant child.  

I am all for playing on weekend mornings, but the true fun of playing on Friday mornings is about playing while the majority of the people are working or sleeping.   Obviously, this means that most people will be unable to play.  It is not that I want to exclude anyone (the more that can play the better), but it is always more fun to do things while you feel that you are getting away with something, i.e., playing while others are gainfully employed.  

This is my last possible Friday morning to play for the year for I also must earn a living.  I would like to see one more Friday Morning Patrol.  Why not add Saturday morning rather than delete Friday?
