I would say if you can only play one day/course, you would want to play Waterworks Park in North Kansas City. If you have time for more than one, we have many options to choose from. Depending on where you are staying, there are courses all around the metro. We have organized mini tourneys each Saturday and Sunday, as well as organized GLOW rounds on Monday and Thursday nights too. All these winter minis utilize a random draw doubles format with a wager of $5 to 10$ per player. If you want to play a certain day/time, post on here and some locals may join up wit ya and show ya around.

10 sub-arctic explorers out for a stroll on the frozen tundra that was Prarie Center last night. With very light breezes it wasn't tooooo bad.

No ACE hit so the fund increases to $472. Only seven more Monday night GLOWS left, so, somebody come hit that ACE.

Tom Butler & Dave Hemmeline  45 for $32
Bryan Guthrie & Andy Lewis  48 for $18
Dick Parker & Arturro Villareal  50
Deano & Cooper Arnold  53
Bob Hayett  & Dan Quinn  55

Come out next Monday for a super special Martin Luther King Jr. Day GLOW.

1593
Olathe Prairie Center tomorrow at 11:00 is the place to play. Random dubs. $10 per person. $1 to ACE fund and $1 to club, leaving $8 payout. It may be a little soft in places, but we do have nice large concrete tee pads. Come check out all the new placements. It's not the same ole Olathe yer momma played.

Also, remember GLOW on Monday night.

How do we determine who is a "pro" and who isn't?
I feel, for simplicity, in random draw dubs all are equal.

 11 out taking advantage of some great winter weather. Along with the warm air and slight breeze, we were treated to a nice lightning show.

 Last night made it two KC winter leagues in three days that the Cali (paying and throwing twice) smoked the field. 
 Observation: When a good player gets Cali and has himself as a partner it's tough to beat em.

Bryan Guthrie & Cali Bryan  44 for $38
Heberto Villareal & Jarad Garren  46 for $22
Tom Butler & Jud Gruber  51
Dick Parker & Cooper Arnold  51
Deano & Andy Lewis 53 (recipients of the most fun had award)
Ben Taylor & Bob Hayett  54

 We drew a couple minutes early last night, and with a last minute arrival, trying to be fair, we re-drew. From now on we will draw at 6:00 sharp, and no one gets in after we draw.

 No ACE hit so the fund grows to $462. Remember, this is 100% payout.

Tyson,

 What time Saturday would work for ya? 10:00 would be about the earliest I could be there. I may clean off the tee boxes as we go so they are clear and dry for our Monday night GLOW round. This makes for a slightly slower round, maybe 2 1/2 hours. If you read this today and wanna play in the ice and snow tomorrow, give me a call. I can try to get some other members of the Olathe posse out too.

913-829-5912 home after 5:00

General Banter / Re: Olathe and Topeka... suggestions?
« on: December 20, 2007, 07:29:19 AM »
Suggestions....? how about practice more. hahaha

Seriously though. When Bob came up with the counter-clockwise course re-alignment, we knew this would be the least liked hole, but Andy and I with our chain saws did not take all the trees in the way out at once. The arborist did not want us to clear it out much. It is slowly becoming more open with the traffic, and, although I really disliked it at first, I now look at it as a challenge and probably 2 it as much as I 4  it. I have also seen several longer arms have much success just going big anny over the top and parking the longer setting.

The short placement is easier, and Bob moves the pins around frequently. It is what it is.

We have considered a shorter, easier setting in front (just to the southeast) of the opening between the 2 larger cedar trees that guard the current middel and long placements. We are always open to ideas and suggestions.

27 hours prior to GLOW I was playing in St. Petersburg, Florida where the temperature was 83, with light easterly breezes, in a green and palm tree filled park beside the ocean. Quite a contrast to GLOW on the prairie last night where five of us humans and one small dog braved the steady freezing rain and frozen precip already on the ground.

Dave Hemmeline & Brain Guthrie  46 for $20
Tom Butler & Andy Lewis  50
Cindy and Mr. Gus  (wet & cold)

No ACE hit, so the fund remains un-struck and grows to $443.
Good job to Brian G. in clearing the tees from this weekends frozen precip.

Tyson,
 
 There is a Thursday night random draw GLOW dubs each week at Waterworks park (6:00 pm draw partners). Ted Keith runs it and usually has lights available for purchase.

 There is  Saturday morning random draw dubs at Prairie center park in Olathe each week at 11:00.

 There is Saturday random draw dubs at Rosedale down under at 12:30.
 
 There are gatherings at Blue Valley park and Pleasant Hill on Sundays. Check our discussion board out for more info.

 Yes, we play in the snow and ice. Rain sometimes hampers us, but that is about it. Post on here when ya might wanna play that week during the daytime and there will prolly be some locals (or locos) that would meet up with ya to guide ya thru.

 Do ya know a guy that goes by Fig there in NC?

Warm weather and breezy air greeted the 15 discers that came to the Prairie for a round last night. I must apologize for the unusually late posting today, but I just finished the round a little while ago. I'll have a bat or hammer with me next week, and if I try to send out any groups larger than 4, somebody please smack me upside the head. No ACE hit so the fund increases to $418.

Matt Hays and Bryan Guthrie  52 for $37.50
Kevin Simpson and Kory Tyler  52 for $37.50
Tom Butler and Dick Parker  53
Andy Lewis and Tavish Sanders  54
Ben Taylor and Dan Coffman  56
Kevin Montgomery and Deano  57
Cooper Arnold and Andy Arnold  57
Bob Hayett and Cali Bob  63

Kevin and Kory were paid. Bryan and Matt left, so, Cindy and I say thanks for dinner tonight guys!
