Although the course will not officially open until Oct, all 18 blue baskets are now in. But there are still 6 long pads not finished on holes 2,3, 7, 8, 12, and 14. One gold basket is still not installed on hole 12. Still making a couple minor tweaks with OB mowing on holes 10 and 18 Gold. However, rest of the course is mowed out nice and wide and losing discs in tall grass should not be a problem. The course looks amazing and was sprayed for ivy 2 times recently. The ivy is still noticeable in spots but the mowing and spraying has helped to knock it down. Grass is also growing nicely in disturbed areas. If you happened to see this park before all the work, you will be impressed with the transformation.
Tom and Nick from the parks dept have been working extremely hard and they are both getting the disc bug. I gave them 5 discs a couple weeks ago and they test out the holes regularly. After they throw(good or bad) they take notes on areas where they went in to that need more brush hogging/mowing. It has been extremely fun working alongside these guys this summer. It took them very little time to understand what we want the course to look like. We have been lucky to have a couple park workers who 100% embrace the project and sport. Below is an email link in case you want to send the parks dept a note thanking them for their effort, time and resources dedicated to this project. firstname.lastname@example.org
