football draft on 9/5 for me, so I am out on that week. Having the ability to throw over 450' is a HUGE advantage at Blue Valley. See last year's worlds, Avery shoots 53, second place Thuggy shoots 63.....who throws farther? I'll agree that there are some good holes at BV, but there are also just some long shots that reward throwing far. Which is OK. But the balance is not where I would like to a see a course all the time.
I hope to help out the entire park and create a new design or two with the idea of keeping that layout as we have, and creating some obstacles as the designers had in mind, and allowing everyone to enjoy the park for disc golf, which it currently does not.
If you think it does, you are not going there enough. THe disc golf course is neglected within the park to the tune of if we are lucky 50/wk. I'd personally put the number closer to 21/wk. Cliff Drive is now seeing close to 150/wk in traffic. Its a longer course, with challenges for all levels. Its a destination course, its not the only one close by, and you want to play disc golf if you are there. That is what Blue Valley should be, a destination, right now its a thought. The baskets and timelines are identical, but the outcome is vastly different. I hope that we can create enough interest in the next year or two as I create more courses out there that it becomes that way.
Looking forward to it, and even though I say these things, I'll be out at Blue Valley to play doubles, I wouldn't let it scare me because its at Blue Valley.
1. Anthon doesn't throw that much shorter than Avery. Sure Avery is one of the bombers out there but 50' doesn't get you much but an easier up shot.
2. Yes, throwing further is an advantage... as it should be. But, and I can't stress this enough about out there, even though it is an advantage it doesn't eliminate the ability of someone who can throw 300-350 to be successful. They may have to be more precise in their approaches, but that is usually the case at any course.
