Winter Leagues / Re: Olathe Winter League
« on: December 11, 2008, 06:15:10 pm »
Sometimes in the coldest part of winter when there be ice and snow on the ground it is nice to play Olathe because we have dry, non-slip surface tee pads. If we wanted to try something new to possibly get more attendance, how bout bring your partner dubs for $10 or $20 per person?

Thanks Coop. The best time to clear em off is immediately following and as soon after the snow event, before players have a chance to pack it onto the concrete.

It's not "my league", it's a rogue league and this particular OB question will be discussed and perhaps voted on by those in attendance Monday. All I do is collect the money, pay out the winners, keep the ACE fund secure, try to have a light supply, shovel snow off the tee boxes, annonce which tees to use, and call out the OB, (which has been discussed with the core group) and try to help all my DG friends have a little escape and fun.


With statements like this, "I suppose we could put new pin placement in on every hole at about 110', so everyone that plays has a chance at aceing every hole.", I suppose we could add saying dickish things to the list.


Hey Thuggy, don't be giving Dick credit for my sarcasm, and I suppose raher than 110' we could set em at around 75' to better suit your ability.  ;D

We can certainly change the OB on 15 if the majority feels it is unfair to have to throw the approx 215' across the trail. Of course one could always throw to the right of the trail (due east off the tee) to advoid OB. If we call it not OB, then it won't be OB further up the hole either.

As you know, I'm all for OB.  However, try to implement it in a fair manner.   On hole #15, a high percentage of players can make it across that path without much problem. So why punish those that can't make it or sometimes barely make it with their longest throws?  It's like taxing the poor and leaving the rich alone. Playing off to the right is still a built in extra stroke. If you want to add OB on that hole, my suggesting would be to designate any tall grass/brush to the east of the path as OB. Only the mowed grass would be in bounds.  That way the rich have to deal with OB considerations from the tee, not just grip it and rip it. The poor then have to deal with the OB, to a lessor extent, on their up shot.

But like bob said, your league, run it as you see fit.

I just want everyone to be happy with the rule and have fun, because it is just a game to play to have fun.

We could always just disband the Monday Prarie Center GLOW, and Cindy and I will quietly disapear wth the ACE fund (when it reaches 3 mil) and retire somewhere in the Caribean.

I haven't actually seen this walking path but why is it OB short of the path if you clear the pond? I would think that since the pond is obviously OB and you want to avoid landing on the path itself that making the area between the pond and the path OB should not be a standard OB area. For doubles or special circumstances it adds challenge but for day-to-day play making standard OBs like the pond and simply on the walking path the default makes more sense to me.

Short of it is OB because it cuts across the normal throwing lane, then turns and parallels the fairway, and finally turns again and runs perpindiicular to the fairway up by the long pin setting. I didn't think the way I called it when the path got paved is too difficult in doubles, but we'll have a quick vote Monday.

Post would work, along with a line on the path, but you would really need a line from the posts and trail to the west down to the edge of the pond. Also,The mower guys wouldn't be to keen on posts.
I suppose we could put new pin placement in on every hole at about 110', so everyone that plays has a chance at aceing every hole.

It's just for GLOW. In doubles it shouldn't happen that both players can't get across. It's only about 215'.

Maybe it is too hard. I'll consider making no OB on 15 if the majority of GLOWERS think that's how it should be. Personally, I hate most OB, but in this case I think it works well.

The city has not finalized the contract with the course designer yet. We need firemen running the government to get r done.

I'm hoping we can get close to the dam, and even have to walk across it between holes. It's really kewl and is even lit up at night.

I can hear it now.... "great dam shot", or, "that damn hole", or "I hate that dam hole".... etc, etc.

The last couple of years there hasn't been many "pros" out for Saturday 11:00 league at Prarie Center, but come on out. It's a good time. You'll probably learn a few things and have fun. Be at the shelter nearest the restroom at 10:45. Bob Hayett runs it. He drives a little white car. Bring five to ten bucks and your discs. You don't have to be a member. It's usually random draw dubs for $5. It's usually done by 2:00.
   
The Rosedale Downunder Saturday 12:30 league is where more of the "pros", and in fact, where a large number of people (one week there were almost 1 million players) play in the winter. The trees and hills block a lot of the wind, and although the entry is higher ($10), the payout is better. It's a good time too.
