Every player I talked to seem to love the courses and the event. Nate Doss commmented to Kristie and me about how much he and other pro players enjoyed the schedule and playing the core courses of KC> He also mentioned it wouldn't be bad to skip Rosie to play Cliff in the future, after redesign.

We had a great showof community in the form of volunteers and I hope you can all make it to the volunteer party TBA.

Jason and Jack,Thanks a million. We will get it sorted out before league. Yes, it is a mess, but this is the aftermath of the KCWO. Lots of energy went into a great event, and we all needed one day of down time. But  back to it today :)

I'll be moving Swope for league Tuesday night. Anyone who can help would be greatly appreciated. The pins are very out-of-order so a pickup truck would be great for major changes. In short, if you can help, that'd be great. I'll be there at a 4:45. Thanks, and see you at league.

Is the hay an island or obstructive?

Both. Now complain about it.  ;) I mean that there is marked OB perpendicular to the hay bails, and they are stacked two high, and there is OB behind the basket about 45 feet out. You don't want to be short of the hay bails. However, there is a long landing strip, in bounds, on the left side of two's fairway. Just don't get into three's fairway as it is OB, too.

Swope looks better than I have seen it in three years. Too bad the park has lost so many trees to disease. It should be a premier course, IMO> The course is amazing as it is set now. Oh yeah, and new stairs thanks to KCMO P&R and Dan Cashen and crew.

I haven't seen the other courses yet, but have talked to many people who have donated time and energy to their beautification. Great showing of the KC community. Can't wait to see them this weekend.

Hay is installed and the course is completely marked for OB.

The plan is to bring 5, 6, 7, and 8 in Sunday afternoon. So, this week is it for the full layout. We would love to keep it long longer, but parking is the issue north of the course and players would, and did last year, hit cars.

Swope beautification has been rocking the past months and this last weekend was the icing on the cake, the cherry on top, the...well, you got it. Thanks to KCMO P&R with the assistance of Dan Cashen and crew we have stairs from 13 to 14! Chris Millsap has painted every surface he could. And Ben Crosby, Caleb Walker, Jose Ossa and yours truly rocked a ton of mulch on Sunday. Course is looking good. See you tomorrow!

A crew of a dozen or so is great for UDG. I have done it in the past with a dozen or so friends in the city. I recommend organizing your event for a few friends. Once these get big, people want to know what is happening. Regardless, UDG is great fun and there are lots of opportunities as noted on this forum.

Swope is at O.P. this week. We'll see how many make it with the rain.

So, no response means Swope League is at Old Pike this week.

In the future, I would like to see Likert scales for each question to better inform Jack's data. This will encourage him to expound more than ever.

I made it out to the beautiful Swope gully course this afternoon and while it was wet in the low lands, it was so green and vibrant I didn't mind a bit.

The small rock retaining wall on 11 is a double sided coin. It doesn't look great as of now, but someone did take to initiative and volunteered to do it. We can make it better in the next week with some help and communication.

I am back in town, and I am willing to run it this week if people want to play. If not, we will continue the urban reciprocity agreement with Old Pike.

Shout out for Swope if you want league this week, please.

I am going out there today. Maybe this can be addressed at next week's workday, but yes Mark is correct it should look good and it seems there was no communication about the work. Personal leadership is always to be commended, and good communication is right there too.
