I've seen others jogging and playing before, so yesterday afternoon I thought I'd try it out. I kept the stopwatch running from when I started on 1 to when I putted out on 18 at Prairie Center. I shot a 54 in 22 minutes-9 seconds. I think if the course is empty I can shoot a 54 or better under 18 minutes. It's a lot of fun except for the chest pains and leg cramp part.

What I wanna try sometime is to get a team of four, and by stationing the team at various points along each hole, see how fast they can get one disc all the way around the course. It would be fun to get two or three teams and have a race around the course, with each team trying to get one disc all the way around the course fastest. I'd say the rules would be just like regular disc golf, and you could only throw the disc to play a hole. (no throwing it from basket to tee box to save time) What disc to use? I think a Roc or Buzz. I'd guess a four man team could get one Roc all the way around Prairie Center set fairly long in under twelve minutes. Maybe under ten minutes?

General Banter / Lake Lenexa progress report

The P & R informed me yesterday they are planning on having the course design starting soon, with fairway clearing and course installation this winter/spring, with the course ready for play in Spring of '09. As of today they plan on hiring a course designer from Texas named John Houck to design the course layout for them. I believe the city will either do the installation work themselves, or contract it to be done. I have made them aware that we have many hard working volunteers at their disposal as well.

Of course how many times have we heard a course will be open by a certain time and it not happen? Hopefully this one will go in and we'll have yet another great place to fling em.

42 degress, 15 mph winds, and steady light rain showers all convinced the three golfers that showed up to take it to the house.


Hopefully we'll have better weather next Monday.

Here in KC we have minis every night of the week at one or more of our courses during the spring-summer daylight time.
Once the clocks fall back in the fall our schedule changes.
The fall-winter schedule is this:

Monday evening at 6:00 in Olathe Prairie Center park-$5 random draw GLOW doubles.

Thursday evening at 6:00 in North Kansas City Water Works Park-$5 random draw GLOW doubles.

Saturday morning at 11:00 in Olathe Prairie Center Park-$5 varying format, usually random draw doubles

Saturday afternoon at 12:30 in Kansas City Kansas Rosedale Down Under-$10 random draw doubles (highly recommended, unless it's real icy)

Sunday afternoon at 12:30 in Pleasant Hill Missouri Pleasant Hill Lake course-$5 random draw doubles.

There are often other golf get togethers as well such as beer league, and homey skins that are usually posted on here.

15 players attended the first round of season 4 Prairie Center GLOW last night. There was an air of cheer and camraderie which made for a very pleasant eve. The temps were unseasonably warm and the scores were hot. It was approximately 67 degrees F with SSW winds at 12 to start the round. Notable missing regulars were our south of the border friends.

Dave Hemmeline & Josh Warner  44 for $42
Bryan Guthrie & Joe Hesting  45 for $28
Kevin Simpson & Dan Leweke  46 for $10
Bom Tutler & Cooper Arnold  47
Deano & Dan Coffman  48
Leo Daprato & Bob Hayett  49
Andy Lewis & Disck Parker  50
Wes Lubberts & Cali Wes  51

I don't think I've seen many leagues/tourneys where the scores all lined up like this. Kinda cool, except for the me not cashing part. No ACE hit, and with 13 players getting in last night the ACE fund is now at $547. 17 more Monday GLOWS left.....

I unfortunately haven't ever made it out for league night, but I might be interested in joining for GLOW night. Can you tell me what I should expect, and what its like. Also, what do I need to bring for GLOW night? Do you use lights or glow discs? Thanks for your help. I hope I'll see you guys sometime soon.

You should expect to have some fun. It's like, groovy man. You need to bring some PDGA approved disc golf discs, warm clothes, and cold beer, until temps get below 20 degrees F, then hot chocolate and schnapps is nice. We use LED lights. You may purchase them at Disc Golf World. I usually have some on hand for sale as well. They cost 1 million dollars.

Just a little curious about the "dry run" that was played. Were there any 975+ rated players, or players that have played 50 to 100+ courses, or any KCFDC club officers involved? No biggy, just wondering.
Jake Bowen, Brian Palmer, John Theiss, Doug Kroll, Brandon Elkins, and Dan Coffman were the participants for the dry run.  Jake threw some bombs....including putting one with 30' on #6 (500' + hole).  Even with multiple spotters we lost several disc, most holes were not actually completed, and it tooks over 3 hours to "play" 15 holes.  I know Steve Casey had to come away with a greater appreciation of why more of the course needs to be mowed, especially when you consider that his target audience is the recreational player.  Lance Dwyer has probably played the course more than anyone but he couldn't be there Saturday, so I played some holes with him on Thursday to get his feedback.  Holes #13 and #15 have standing water in the landingzones on the fairways.  There's a couple of rock and earthen dams on these fairways that were installed when they built the shelters.  These dams will need to be removed for these holes to be viable (even then I have questions because these holes in essence utilize the same fairway).  Also, one of the constaints that we're working with is to utilize the current teepad locations......

Two holes using the same fairway? Sort of a combination of disc golf and guts?

If you have one, bring your Jack-Lowe-Lantern out and light it up on the course for a groovy effect.

Per the LSPR Dept request, they did not want a lot of people to show up, only those who received "an invite" to "drive/follow/putt" thru the course, receiving feedback in return.  And LSPR received very very good feedback in return from those individuals who participated, who I feel "Are Qualified" to provide valuable feedlback and paid for it "in multiple lost disc's".... AND we used spotters too.

I still feel a lil peeved I lost disc's for two fellow players spotting for them.  They flew right over my head and landed within 30 yards of me, and we still couldn't find them.  Sorry fella's...

So I'm a'wondering what bark u trying to bark here, maybe ur trying to bite instead?  If so...MUZZLE IT!!! ;););)

Not barking. I was just curious is all cause I hadn't heard about it. Chappy and/or Rick would have been a good source of input as well, but I suppose there could only be a small group.

Good job guys. Can't wait to try it when the city gets it all done.
