Picking up trash and sweeping/blowing off tee boxes at both courses would be a big help.

2
I was out there today and I agree, the courses look great.  One question, on hole 2 at P.C. the short tee box was mulched, not the long tee.  Will we be playing from the short tee to the island hole?

The long tee will be used on hole 2 P.C. for the Ole Krusty's Open.

G$ and I went to Birdland all afternoon and weed eated around every large tree on holes 14, 15, and 16, We also lifted low hanging branches around the tees and cleaned up the formerly small opening on hole 12. The courses look great. We'll play the Old Settlers layout at P.C. league tommorrow.

I moved 5 pins at P.C. and 2 pins at Lakeside to get all baskets into tournament position this evening. The holes with alternate tees will use the long tees except for hole 8 P.C, which will be the short box.

I will try to have the hole descriptions posted in the next few days. The O.B. will be minimal and we will not be playing hole 4 at Lakeside as an island this year. The island hole at P.C. will be the tough, "must come to rest on the island, or throw from the drop zone" rule though.

Both courses are looking incredible. The City has been doing lots of extra work to make them look sharp. The mow is like a well kept suburban lawn, and they will hit it again next week before the tourney. Also, super volunteer Michelle Palmer has de-thorned and cleaned up around almost every tree in holes 12, 13, and 14's fairways.  8)

If you want to play two manicured courses in a PDGA tourney setting put on by a most excellent tournament director/staff/company (DD), get signed up.  :)

The City has mowed the pond shore, but it is still a little shaggy. Hitting the drop zone and the green with weedeaters Saturday will help make it look super nice.

If minor, low hanging limb trimming occurs, we need to remove them from the fairways, preferably hauling them either to the dumpster up by hole 17, or out of the park completely.  8) 8)

If time allows another place that could use some touch up is all along the top of the slope on hole 12, at the entrance to the wooded down slope.

If the Friday travelers want to be super nice guys, perhaps they could carry some trash bags with them, and pick up the mexican soccer folks water bottles along the tree line on hole 12, and any other misc trash around the courses?  8)

The parks guys acting on my request for help have been working on the hole 15 mowing. I'll be out there for a recon and basket move tonight. I will post the status tonight. If the pond is cleaned up satisfactorily, another area that needs weedeater is the entire tree line directly to the north of basket 16, and increasing the green to the east and around the basket to at least 10 meters. Thanks everybody!

Yes, with the possible exception of hole 15 at p.c., as we will be working on mowing there.

Approximately 9 cubic yards of wood chips were placed and spread onto the hillside trail between hole 13 basket and 14 tee at Prairie Center this morning. Approximately 14 cubic yards of wood chips were placed and spread around basket 3, along the trail to tee 4, and on the hillside trail down to the 4 green at Birdland. The crew consisted of Cindy, my daughter Amy, and one of her friends.
Also out on the P.C. course making it look awesome, as she has been daily for the past few weeks was Michelle Palmer. The next big task will be mowing the pond shore at P.C. If you have time and something to mow with, feel free to hit the beach. I will be out there
most evenings this week, and if necessary next weekend to finish up the pre-tourney course beautification.

Tommorrow,  Saturday August 22 we will be spending a few hours working at Prarie center and birdland. After working, we will prolly eat, drink, and frolf at birdland. We will be at hole pc 14 tee around 9:00. If you have a garden rake, weedeater, gloves, water, and beer, you will be set. Even if you have none of that stuff, come out and get some old settlers karma by workin on the courses. More work days will be happening in the next week or so as well, so plenty of karma to be gained.  8)

On this day, 55 years ago, Cindy's folks got married. They are still married and kickin it.  ;D

Just my 2 cents, since you asked. Too much OB at Swope. WW's 4 to5, and 17, hate it.

The ob lines at Swope really don't protect the players, and full field tourneys should prolly not be played there... I witnessed 3 near misses in the few hours we were on the course Saturday. Getting hit by a driver would suck.

Awesome! I know you guys know how to do a good job. I'll be out next weekend to take care of all the wood chips with a loader. No, please no tree removing... :)

I think the last group last year teed off at 2:10 in the afternoon if that helps.

Yes, it was around 2:10, and we had to acknowledge we paid attention to the special instructions and all that jazz.  ;D
