Why not put in another 18 pin course altogether?

Lord knows the park is big enough. Big enough for 10 full courses, easily.

Like I said, we have good contacts in the Parks Department, hopefully something like that could be a possibility in the future.


Some people have thrown out the idea of using an area already near the course, and adding 9 holes. So that someone could still play the course as usual, or one could play an extended version of 27 holes if they wanted to.

This guy is a joke. Throws 50 discs off the tee until he gets an ace, counts them all.

I've talked to the Parks Director and he seems interested in working with DD in running a Sanctioned Event out there early next year, and DD seems to share the same interest.

As for the rest of the park and a temporary course, I'm pretty sure I could, within a week, set up very long very technical course with Par well over 60. I've spent so much time driving/wandering the course, imagining huge sloping fairways, giant oak trees, pins near the lake. Like, a slightly scaled down Winthrop Gold.

How much of that is pipe dream and how much is realistic? I'm not sure. I think there is a lot of potential for temporary holes in the park (which is enormous), but I don't know how much of that land would be available to us in the immediate future. The Parks Director is a disc golfer, and definitely on our side, so I think we could potentially get some extra land to use for a tournament. And depending on how an event like that does, I think there is possibility in the future to expand further and further into the park, even if only temporary events.

It's just such a nice park with perfect Disc Golf landscape, it'd be a shame to never get to use any of it.

My thought would be one of Rosedale's long Pins on #9.

The new pin on hole #4 at SMP is a very tough 3, as are several of the new pins. But #4 (and maybe #3 Long) are the best candidates we've got for the Gold Course.

played it tonight, I like the stretching out of a bunch of the holes... hard to tell how they will throw with playing it in 30 mph winds tonight

I think this will be most people's first look at the new pins, and I tried to include as many as I could.

So I hope people like what they see.

Wanted to thank Rick for everything he does in Kansas City, especially running this event. I have a great time in all KCFDC Events but this one is a great example to newer players of why they should get involved.

Also thanks to CD, Fred, Cooper, and Dick for 'helping' us out :P

Is Rosedale currently set for the first round? I assume it will be by Saturday, which is when I'll first be able to practice anyway.

I don't think the gates close at SMP until like 9 or 10, even in the winter.

Regardless, not enough demand to run any consistent over the winter, it seems. We had a hard enough time populating our in-season league...
