General Banter / Re: Visiting STL
« on: June 10, 2011, 10:54:23 PM »
I really can't believe people recommend West City in Festus so often.  It basically sucks...3 really long holes, 5 somewhat Cliff Drive like, 2 in woods over a hill, and the rest open field.  And, the Cliff Drive-like holes and the open field ones are flooded a lot of the time.  Don't waste your time on it...JB Endicott and Sioux Passage are all solid, CC is flat and long and boring as Jack said, but will challenge your straight and long game, and yes, the view across the street is amazing.  Sioux is sort of Water Works on steriods, longer with more open hills.  It plays somewhere between WW and BV.  Endicott is, as was said, a lot like Rosedale in that it's busy, but it's a more difficult course than it seems at first.  Lots of trees and tight shots, with a couple really nice open holes as well.  Nothing too long, but challenging.  It's basically Nikko's home course, since he has family just a few doors down. 
Quail Ridge is just of 64/40, just east of the 70 merge.  It's a wonderful course, they now have 3 tees marked on most holes.  The short tees are fun, but the longers are fun and a PITA.  It's so far from South County that I don't get there often, except when driving to or from KC.

Anyone who comes this way, give a holler to me.  I'm trying to play more, and succeeding for the most part.  The only 18 hole course I really don't care to play often is Creve Coeur.  JB has nooner on Sunday, Creve Coeur an open league Wednesdays, Endicott open league on Mondays, and most of the others are true leagues, not just minis.  That sort of sucks.

General Banter / I made an interesting discovery over the last few days

An Aerobie Arrow putter makes a decent scraper for lite ice.  Really heavy frost or freezing rain/sleet type stuff, no.   But, the downwind side of my car, which still got ice but not nearly as heavy, it worked great.  The windshield, I needed the real scraper.  I like the Arrow as a putter too, so it's an extra bonus.

Whodathunkit?

4 was far superior in the old days, when the TV was still there.  There were 2 lines, hyzers from both arms, and if you tried to drive the pin and missed, you're in trouble.  If you went easy, good chance of par.  It was beautiful.  Then all the trees came down.  grrrrrrrrrrr.....

Kev, I'm planning to be up there by 11  on Saturday.    I have to be downtown by 4:30, so 2 rounds could be possible. 

No later than 1130, I'll promise.  I70 has sucked the last few weeks.  I'll be back in St L by 10 Sunday, most likely...no dubs for me.

My first Ace ever!
Jokerst Park in Festus MO.  #3, maybe 300' in the short placement from the long tee. 

No witnesses.  Since it went into #5's basket, it's a good thing.

First f'n Ace is Black.  Figures.

Adieu, Ted's.  Thanks for the sweet course and the terrific parties. 

Oct 16th I'll be up there by late morning, planning to play Ted's one last time.  Anyone want to join?

I'm playing with a 5-piece German band at the P&L the next 3 Saturdays, 7-10pm out by the Beer Garden, outside McAlester's.  A good time will be had by all.

General Banter / Wednesday Out of Towner Loafing
« on: September 27, 2010, 11:27:56 PM »
Well, technically.  I'll be in town for just a few hours Wednesday morning, and some Cliff Drive disc golf sounds like a great present to myself.

Anyone wanna join me?  I'm thinking 10am, I have to be on the road back to St L by 130 at the latest.

Give a read to "The Inner Game of Tennis" and "The Inner Game Of Golf".  Tennis explains the whole idea, Golf restates it and expands on it.  Good stuff.

General Banter / Re: Placements
« on: August 23, 2010, 11:08:28 PM »
well, here in River City...several courses already have, and they're probably going to go to this on all of the courses, the unused placements have a sprinkler head cover.  The placement in use has one cut so the pole can go through it.  It makes sense, the mowers go right over the covers and the pipes aren't exposed. 
I'm not sure of the expense involved, but it works here.

As far as height goes, to me that's a non-issue.  Maybe the manufacturers need to have 2 holes drilled for locks, one high and one low.  That way a raised sleeve or sub-surface sleeve could be used.

I called the cops more than twice while there.  Jerks.  Not the cops, the jerks who I called the cops on.

The California Trail course was installed by a gym teacher at the school.  I talked with him a few years back, suggested we try to get some players in to teach a little to the kids, maybe make a couple adjustments to the course (like, move the one tee area -- can't call it a pad -- that's on the hill, and whatever.  He had absolutely no interest.  It's not a course to get excited about, unless there's some interesting eye candy -- not being gender specific -- at the track.

#1 across the vollyeball court can be interesting.  And, if there's a football practice, a lot of it can be challenging.  I keep thinking of the Miller Lite ad, with "full contact golf".
