Baldwin City Lake / Re: New baldwin disc golf course
« on: February 03, 2014, 07:58:40 PM »
We have been out and got the distances for all the holes now. Hole and distance markers should be ready in about 6 weeks. There has been a few tee pads moved on holes 7,10,12 and 13. Not sure when tee pads will be installed yet. Hole7's tee area has been moved west to end of the turn around so its not being driven over by cars. Hole 10 was moved to the east of basket 9. Hole 12 is gonna have 2 tee placements one where it is now and another straight out from the gap it marked by a yellow flag out in the tall grass.  Hole 13s tee pad was pushed up more toward the point of the trees to make way for the 2nd tee pad area on hole 12.  On hole 9 theres maybe going to be a 2nd basket location closer to the waters edge.  Hole 8 is going to get a second basket local over across the entrance road making it a 600+ hole. That where the course design and statistics of improvements on the course are a the moment.

Found and Lost / found 2 discs at wyco
« on: December 11, 2013, 04:43:03 PM »
I found 2 discs on fairway 16 at Wyco yesterday with no name or phone number.  If you lost them give me a text or call at 913 244 9189.  You tell me the names of the discs and there color i will make sure you get them back.  I want to make sure they go to the real owner. And now for the grand prize bonus question if you can tell me what type of beer you were drinking? Well really there's not a bonus prize. Sorry

Basket 12 is back!  Somone must be collecting the yellow tee flags now.  Tee flags for holes 7, 12, and 13 are gone.  Who evers doing this leave the baskets and flags be. Go find something better to do. We have a nice and fun course here don't spoil it for us players who love the sport. Thanks

I stopped out there tonight. Basket 12 is gone someone must have picked it up. Dont know if someone from the city got it or the vandels came back for it. It didn't look like the mounting hole was damaged. So I don't think it was pulled out of the ground. Maybe they unbolted it. They need to be pinned and locked for sure.  Its a shame that in one week they are already tearing up the baskets.

If you start on hole 11 that is the real hole 1. Then just follow the holes in that order and you have it correct. Just so everyone knows till they get the holes marked.

Now that I look at your map closer the hole numbers are all wrong. That must be the first map version that they come up with. I think the correct one you can find under the tournament blog.

Well I'm just a local guy down here that's only been playing for a little over a year now  thats trying to get it in playable condition.  The city is going to be the ones mowing out there. But left it up to the players to trim trees as needed. I'm just trying to do my part since I'm 5 minutes from it.  FTL sounds great and I can try and meet you guys out there sometime. But during the week I work till 230 in kcmo. FTL seems to be always started before I get off so have never been able to come play. With the map you downloaded its pretty close to where everything is located except hole 8 has been shortened, to before you cross the entrance road.  Hole 11 was pushed back about 30 feet under the big oaks. If anyone plays out here and has some suggestions post them on here and I will do my best to get done.

Was out there tonight and trimmed a few trees. Basket was put inside the shelter on hole 10. Hole 11s basket was moved back under the two big oaks instead of out in the grassy road where the temporary basket was set. Hole 8 was shortened to under the 2 maple trees before you crossed the  entrance road. Other than that everything is how we played it in the tournament. Hole 13 still needs trees cut and trimmed. And path cut from basket 12 to tee area 13. I got holes 1, 2, 7, 14, 16 and 17  trimmed and ready to go.  Now if we could get the fairways mowed a little wider that would be great. Got some trimmed branches to still clean up on hole 7, got dark on me had to stop for the night. I will get back out there tomorrow or saturday and get that cleaned up. Other than that the course is coming together nicely.

FTL would be fun. I live in baldwin, would like to meet you guys if I'm home to play with you. Got out there tonight and trimmed a few more trees on holes 1, 2 and 7. Already got holes 14, 16 and 17 trimmed. Hole 17 has a risk/ reward shot just like hole 13 will have. Still need to cut a path thru the trees  from hole 12 to tee area 13.  Some trees still need to be trimmed on hole 13 so you an see the basket. Maybe cut a small opening for a risk/reward shot or you can try an anhyzer shot around the finger of trees that protrude out in the fairway, giving us options on our shots. Probably be there tomorrow night cleaning up dead limbs and maybe some more trimming of trees, unless I'm playing a round somewhere. Met a couple guys playing out there tonight and got there opinions on what needed trimming, so that was helpful.

Was just out at the baldwin disc golf course to check the progress. The baskets have been installed. They even put the basket under the shelter on hole 10, like everyone wanted. Tees are marked by two yellow flags for now. Tees to be put in next year I believe.  I have done some tree trimming on a few holes. I'm gonna try and get out there this weekend and trim a few more. Fairways are still narrow but I'm sure they will take care of that when the city gets time. So go out and play the new course. Post your thoughts on what you think needs done on this post.  So we can make it the best that the course can be. If you need a course map you can find it posted earlier in this post.

Tournaments / Re: Baldwin City Course Design Input (+ tournament)
« on: October 28, 2013, 07:33:50 PM »
Dennis dropped off the baskets sunday night to the city dept.  Basket installation may start in the next couple weeks we hope.  Depending on how much rain falls this week, I may try and get out and trim a few trees where needed. Have to see how quick the city gets out and mows down the patches of weeds on certain holes and widen a few of those tight fairways. Talked with steve friend at the city rec dept. Last night. Passed on that eveyone that played sunday would like to see the basket stay in the shelter on hole 10.  He's gonna run it by the city manager and see if they will okay it. Lets keep our fingers crossed. Was out there tonight, they mowed the green grassy area along the road and lake area ( only one day late) lol. I live in baldwin and will keep everyone  updated on all progress on what's been done out there.

Does anyone know if there's gonna be a prize money paid out or discs or what? No mention of that anywhere. I'm headed out there now to see if they've started setting up the baskets.

Just called mike carson. He will be out at the lake he thought sat. Night starting to set up the baskets. He will have a trailer with about 1000 discs for the tourney.  Drove out there a few minutes ago they have mowed the fairways today.  There not very wide though, gonna be tough to stay on them shot after shot. Should be interesting that's for sure.
