Eisenhower State Park, aka Melvern Lake

Two rounds of 18 holes.




Eisenhower / Melvern is more open than wooded, but there are some definite wood holes and one particular hole (15) where you drive off a hill (cliff) over water to reach the other side.  There is some landing area if you want to set up first.

This is a Kansas state park, park entrance fee is required.  There is also quite a bit of camping available from tent areas to RV's, to cabins and yurts.  They even have facilities for horse camping.  Yes, you can bring your horse to camp with you.

Park Fee schedule:

$7-19?/night camping based on how many utilities you want and that 10/3/15 is two days after the 'Off Season' rates kick in.

I will be camping at Maime's Cabin near hole 15 for sure Friday night and maybe Saturday night too.  Check in will be there at the cabin 8:30 - 9:00 am Saturday morning.

I wasn't even there. First tournament I ever missed because I *enjoyed*[?] the players party too much the night before.  :-X. Won't make that mistake this year.

moment of infamy

Out of curiosity, did the rain affect the rating?

From PDGA FAQ page about ratings:

Are inclement weather or tournament pressure accounted for in the ratings?
Yes. The weather and tournament pressure are automatically taken into account resulting from the typically higher scores propagators shoot in tougher conditions. These higher scores thrown by propagators will produce higher ratings for the same score on the same course layout compared with rounds played in milder conditions and recreational play.

Ratings for last night are done. It was a rough night for some players.

The other option if it doesn't fill is to have Byes which would be even more unfair.  Best case scenario is for it to fill.

It is 32 for Open and Am division each, 8 for women.

However, if we don't reach our cap, then Scott and I have decided that in order for it to run well, it needs to be limited further. 

Sign up early and you won't get shut out.

NEXT WEEK: Swope.  Probably will play the MAC layout.


In order for this to work we need to have exponents of four (4,8,16,32).  After the MAC, based on field size, we may trim down the three divisions. 

Basically, if you want in, sign up as early as you can.  If a division has 20 people sign up, it will be trimmed to 16 and the remaining 4 will be shut out and receive a refund.

WHAAAATTTT back to the bad rock??? I did not realize. I will try to move some blue baskets to their longer settings after the putt-a-thon happening this week

kujo - will you be there Monday night?  If so, I'll let you decide which tee's, baskets, etc. we use.  A mix of both short and long would be nice.

I'm going.

Looking for a room mate.  I'll be there Friday and Saturday nights staying at the TownePlace Suites.  Really need someone who does not snore.  Prefer non-smoker, but if you smoke outside I'm ok with it.  Actually, the entire hotel is smoke free from what I see.  I do drink beer, etc. in my room but generally don't get stupid about it. 

#63765 is listed as a Professional on the PDGA website, has acceptd cash (actually over $1K in cash) and has a rating over 969.  He's ineligible.
