Prairie Center / Re: Hole 15

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.

I'm thinking about them. I'll call the OB tonight. At first I thought only 10 shoulb be affected, but perhaps we should say short of, on or acroos the trail on 15 is ob, and right of it on 16 is ob. The problem is where do you play from if your ob?
Any thoughts? I'll listen to all ideas, but since I am Supreme Olathe GLOW Commander I'll make the call tonight. What do ya all want? More OBs? I do think on the trail on 14 is not too fair. 15 and 16 I'm leaning towards more obs, but should we have a drop zone on the trail for both holes? So many decisions. I just wanna play some golf.

It's dry, the winds are gonna be light, the temps not too bad, there is a substantial ACE fund, so what are you waiting for?  ???

New OB on hole 10 as the walk trail is paved now. On or across the walk trail is OB.
