Things are moving along rather well at the new course going in next to BS South HS. Last week, i spent my spring break working along side the parks and rec guys. The parks and rec have brought in a machine called a deforester cutter. It is an amazing machine that turns trees, cedars etc into wood chips in just a few seconds. They will have the machine for at least two weeks minimum or longer, until no longer needed. Due to the small amount of land available, the course will be similiar to the DU but longer. There are some really unique holes, good elevation, tunnel shots, dog legs, turnovers, hyzers,placment shots, and ace runs. The course will be a technical control type of course. In addtion, there are three water shots. There will be two tee pads per hole, and two pin locations for now. I am very pleased with the on going communication between the club and the parks and rec. The original tee pad design idea has been scrapped and the pads will be poured on site by the HS students in a votech class. The pads will hopefully be getting formed up in early April and with concrete following soon after. Pads should be in before school is out. HOWEVER, the baskets will not be in until late in the Summer or early Fall. I will keep you all updated. Anyone that lives out that way that is interested in doing some minor tree trimming/work, please get a hold of me.
