General Banter / Re: pro disc golf course designer or not?

Quote from: "robertalan"
A pro disc golf course designer is not applicable in every situation.  For example, Lake Lenexa is not ready for a pro disc golf designer.  The park is going to add features in stages over the next 2-4 years.  Hiring a pro designer right now wouldn't make any sense.  Any course going in to this new park will be inevitably altered/tweaked/changed many times over the next few years.  It will be more ideal to hire a pro designer when the entire park is complete, and the flow of foot traffic in the park is finally determined.  The best use of a pro designer is where you have an entire park completely devoted to disc golf, with little or no conflict anticipated with joggers, dog-walkers, soccer moms, etc.  You want your final layout to be determined by a pro designer.  Otherwise I believe money would be wasted in hiring one.  Now if a pro designer would come out and design a course for free, then bring one in immediately.

What I am talking about isn't hiring a "professional course designer". I'm saying a course should be designed by a pro level disc golf player with a lot of tournament experience. This is what Hosfeld was writing about, and I tend to agree that someone that has played in a lot of tournaments at a variety of courses will most probably be able to provide a better design than a lower rated player that has not played many different courses.

General Banter / new courses in S Jackson county?

And if the city elects to install a dg course, consult a qualified dg course designer. I agree with Greg Hosfeld's article in the latest Disc Golf World. DG course design should be done by a pro level player with at least ten years tournament experience.

Cliff Drive / T-pads
« on: May 22, 2006, 12:08:48 PM »
I was wondering if any T-pads had been built at Cliff Drive yet? If not, is there a plan to do so?

I'll be over there for some leagues this summer when I am fully recovered.

Blue Valley / Tearing Up The Course!!!
« on: May 09, 2006, 07:16:28 AM »
Perhaps some "severe tire damage spikes" could be installed in their favorite acceleration lanes, or, of course, a 50 cal sniper rifle is very effective at ranges up to 1000 yards.

General Banter / Get with it KC!
« on: May 04, 2006, 10:20:03 AM »
I think another reason there isn't a league on Saturday or Sunday during the warm weather months is the fact that there are tournaments on a lot of the weekends that are within easy driving distance of KC, so a lot of the potential league players would be out of town.

General Banter / Tom Butler in the Hospital

I was in the horsepistol April 17 to April 21. I the was off work from April 24 to today, May 3. I am still not well, but am improving. The doctors say I should be 100% by the first of July. Thanks for the thoughts and prayers everyone. Hope to see you on the courses before long.

General Banter / summer leagues
« on: April 03, 2006, 12:08:02 PM »
I was curious as to why Cliff Drive league is on Monday, when there is already a league on Monday in Olathe, and one at Rosedale for new players? It seems to me that Friday would have been a better day of the week for the Cliff Drive league.

Another question I had too; is the Cliff Drive league $5 with $1.50 going to the club just as the other KCFDC leagues are? I plan on attending some this summer and wondered about the format and payout.  

Come out to olathe tonight to kick off the summer league season. According to Bob the ACE fund is well over $500.

Prairie Center / 03-27-06 GLOW League and final stats
« on: March 28, 2006, 01:37:46 PM »
We had 16 out on a windy, chilly night to conclude the inaugural season of Olathe GLOW. We enjoyed burgers, brauts, and beer before the round, and a good time was had by all.

Arturro Villareal and Sean Elliott shooting 43 for $48
Dick Parker and Dean Uhlman shooting 48 for $32
Andy Lewis and Bryan Guthrie shooting 49
Dan Coffman and Steve Hoog shooting 49
Bob Hayett and Heberto Villareal shooting 50
Tom Butler and Matt Hays shooting 51
Quinten Street and John Buckle shooting 51
Jamie Barry and Dan Forster shooting 55

We had several eventful nights during the season. A couple of score highlights were the teams of Tom Butler and Heberto Villareal, Bryan Guthrie and Steve Hoog, and Tom Butler playing Cali all shooting the GLOW course record of 42. There were also several 43's scattered thru the season.

We had 34 different players come out thru the season. Andy Lewis and Dean Uhlman share the title of most rounds with 21 out of a possible 22. Tom Butler had 20.

The top money winners were:
Tom Butler shooting 20 rounds for $172
Bryan Guthrie shooting 18 rounds for $141.50
Dick Parker shooting 12 rounds for $100
Andy Lewis shooting 21 rounds for $98.50
Arturro Villareal shooting 9 rounds for $90
Dan Coffman shooting 10 rounds for $71
Heberto Villareal shooting 6 rounds for $67.50
Dean Uhlman shooting 21 rounds for $58.50
Steve Hoog shooting 5 rounds for $25
Sean Elliott shooting 1 round for $24
Tavish Sanders shooting 10 rounds for $22.50

The top 5 money won per round winners were:
Sean Elliott - $24 per round
Heberto Villareal- $11.25 per round
Arturro Villareal- $10.00 per round
Tom Butler- $8.60 per round
Dick Parker- $8.33 per round

No ACES were hit this season except for Arturro and Andy each hitting one in warm-up. The ACE fund will be held until next season. The first GLOW of the fall will be on Monday, October 30th, when we will cook some burgers and brauts again to kick it all off. The ACE fund stands, unhit, at $196.

I hope everyone enjoyed my little GLOW league. I did. See ya around town at the summer leagues.
peace
