Little note - I started this league because my first experiences of playing league was frustrating.  I rarely quite knew what was going on, felt like I was in the dark, and when I did finally started to figure it out, I realized I was always in last place.  With two great experiences with PDGA leagues - Cliff Drive last year and the Wandering Wednesday this year, I wanted to combine both that experience along with a more welcoming experience for new players.  The former is easy - you get a rating.  The later was more about bringing a greater variety of divisions (Rec and Women) and using Am Cash to push the more competitive people up to Open.

Both goals were already met this evening.  We had enough people to create ratings for the round, and it was a great pleasure to award Am Cash (Lawrence Loot) to a player that wasn't expecting to receive anything.  While I wasn't able to play, it was a great evening.

FTL well represented congrats to the gm's Harold and joe

I'd say Kansas City was well represented in general.

Yep.  Especially in MPO, eh?  Still freaks me out everytime I see someone sky one over 18's basket off of 1's tee.  Sheesh.

Where's the love James?! I'm one of the original 3 Amigos of FTL and got my first First.

Hey Rob, Hole 7 (Standard #9) should also be Mando left of the tree on right, IMO.  Forces golfers to throw a straight tunnel shot at the hole, and takes the easy hyzer out of play.  Gotta make these holes a little more difficult when you can:)   

Also, you will need to state that there is an approximate 8 foot tee pad, from where the back of the wood chips begin.  Some of the tees are drug halfway to the hole from people playing further and further to the end of the tee.  It is caused by them not putting in a log or something to force a front of the pad and/or stopping point.   Everything else should be good to go.


Make it so Number 1.

Japan is right. See what happens when you throw discs over 159.9 gms

Hi Scott.  How's it going?

444
Every week for the next 10 weeks.  Towards the end of the 10 week period, if the interest is still strong, I'll keep it going for a bit longer.

If you wish to discuss the layout on it's own merit, please post in that thread as to not clutter this thread.

Please keep posts here about the league, not about the course.

Thanks!
