Lakeside Hills / Re: Lakeside Hills is OPEN!
« on: November 06, 2017, 06:24:36 AM »
  We have known for a couple years that the City of Olathe was planning to use the old golf course at Lakeside Hills for a new park. We were told when we put in Birdland that it most likely would be temporary. We were also told that only a few of the back holes (14, 15, 16, 17) would be affected. Last week Pete Cashen, Cade Garrelts and I met with the City and their Park Design firm to look over their plans. The majority of holes are affected by the new park plan and Birdland as we know it will not exist once construction starts in late spring of 2018. The course will likely be pulled partially or completely during construction for approximately one year and a revised or new version put in after the main construction is complete.

 We have been provided the new plan, complete with the Park Design Firm's course modifications. In the meeting I proposed I evaluate the proposed changes, and look at a complete redesign as well. That is where we are today. I received the design firm's survey file and the new park plan file Friday 11-3-17 in the afternoon, and I have just started looking at it in detail. We will have a good idea by the end of November what direction the course layout will be taking. But ultimately the course will be shorter, tighter, and less of a Championship level course, with a new park road and a bike/walk trail crossing thru the land we once roamed freely upon.

 Let's be optimistic and glad to be able to have a course at all. We had Birdland to ourselves for five years.  8)

 Cade, Pete or I will provide updates as we find out the path forward.

The pins were in mostly all short positions except for 12 and 17. As posted earlier, we will play GLOW at Birdland thru November.

With all twelve getting in the ACE fund increased to $858.

The target zone size isn't and hasn't changed from the beginning. The increase in chains allows for more ACES and long up shots to stick. Putting soft on calm days my putts stay in, and on windy days jamming the putts in works too. I like the Discatcher 28 and the Mach X's. To each his own though, and lucky for all of us that know more chains is dilly dilly.

The pins are in tourney positions at both Prairie Center and Birdland. Come play P.C. tonight.
The long range forecast looks good.
The rough at Birdland was just mowed. Both courses will get the usual short weekly mow late this week.
Registration is increasing....let's fill it up!   8)
