Good job on the work. I'm sure it's a very nice OB. One last thought on making this hole more interesting; planting trees works too and is a gift that last a lifetime.
Are the piles of debris still in 7's fairway? I was going to drive my pickup and move them to the burn pile this eve if they are and I can get a few helpers.

I just don't see the need to spend $ and manhours on this when (at least for me) getting a 3 on this hole is already a rarity. It will be very annoying to crush a drive out where I would have had a chance to reach the green in 2 but instead be out of bounds. Likewise, it will be very annoying to crush a drive, be in bounds, but on my up-shot land OB 45' away, where I might have been able to still save a 3, but instead be OB. Maintaining the approximately 1000' of OB will be a chore too.

I play em as they are presented, but this just seems silly.

Will these paint lines also be marked with flags or stakes at approximately 100' centers along the line, or something else that can be seen from the tee so players know where they will be penalized for landing?

The stats shouldn't be to hard to figure out. There will be a lot more 5's, 6's, 7's and 8's.

Personally I don't care for OB that has to be constructed and maintained, but, hey, it's your dime and time.

Prairie Center / League ACE
« on: September 30, 2008, 07:16:29 AM »
Leo ACED hole #4 last night in league.

At the board meeting tonight we will discuss whether his round (and ACE) is valid, due to the fact he played the round with the use of Deano's shiny new golf cart.

Just kidding. Congrats on another league ACE Leo!

A top ten from a long time KCFDC member and well traveled player....

1. Waterworks (no explanation needed)
2. Wyco (come out on a mid-summer Friday league and see for yourself)
3. Swope (ancient trees, really kewl steel box clubhouse, and tossing across valleys=fun)
4. Prairie Center (well maintained, multiple CONCRETE tees on 5 holes, multiple pin locations, close to brown bag and my house, nuff said)
5. Rosedale top (central location right off I-35, great shot variation, classic course)
6. Cliff Drive (awesome mix of holes, will prolly move up my list once Jack quits messing around and pours some concrete and finalizes the layout, but even as is, a super course)
7. Blue Valley (needs carts, but the views and magnitude are amazing) 
8. P Hill (a lake, albino wallabys, screaming monkeys, and a really pleasent park)
9. Shawnee Mission (needs boxes and less armed rangers)
10. WYE (never been there but based on all my friends reports, it has to be better than California Trail, and DU has just too much of the luck element for my taste)

And, like I've said before, any course I'm on is my favorite at the time and I think it's so sweet to live in a metro with soooo many great courses and so many fun dg folks. We are truly blessed.

The first concert I ever attended was in Joplin. It was Johnny Cash in 1968.

The DG course is in a great park. The last time I was there some of the baskets were mounted real low. I think they might have corrected that though.

Humble pie...yummm. I'd be glad to have some, but of course the main ingredient is a lower score than the Throlatheans, and frankly, I just don't see that happening. Bwahahaha

Side bets? Anyone? Bueller?

Don't take me seriously. Just trying to drum up some interest and spirited, friendly competition.

Prairie Center / Re: Tee-off time Monday at 5:30
« on: September 15, 2008, 02:04:52 PM »
Both courses are great. I would have to say that Cliff has better topography for DG and is one of my favorite places to play.

Do you mean the partial sponsorship we accepted from DGW? Whatever.
