General Banter / a balance
« on: August 11, 2005, 01:46:37 PM »
I'm gonna chime in on this topic. Personally, I don't care if a course is monster long, or a pitch and putt. I think what needs to happen when a new course is being designed is that the course par shoud be established early. When I play a course, I want to know what the designer thought the par should be, so I can play for par, or better. That's all we should want, a clear, obtainable, objective to strive for. If a course is designed to be a par 72, that's fine. There should be a balance of par 3s, 4s, and 5s. There should be some easy 3s and some hard 3s, and so forth. I do think the par for a course should  be attainable by a player that is possibly not a top pro. I would think if a course has a par 72, then somebody like Laron, or Eric McCabe, with a +-1000 rating should, on a good day be able to beat par by 5 to 7 strokes. Likewise, on the same course, a strong am player on a good day should be able to play it par, or maybe 1 to 2 under.
That's just my opinion.

Beginners / Leauge questions
« on: August 04, 2005, 02:37:47 PM »
A portion of league entry goes to the KCFDC. $1 goes into the ACE fund and rest is payed out to the winners. League is a great place to meet other DGers and to learn the game from more experienced players. League also can help you learn proper etiquette and how to compete in a tournament-like setting. Oh, and most importantly, there is often someone with a cold beer for ya. mmmmmm beer. I play a lot of non-league and a lot of league rounds. It's all good, and to each his own.

I would have to say that #7 is probably my favorite. I also like #1, #2, and #18 a lot.

Prairie Center / Glow Round
« on: July 26, 2005, 02:26:48 PM »
Actually, the my favorite league in town, WW glow, starts at 6:00 on Thursday nights. The glow season begins after the time change in the fall and runs til the time change in the spring.

Several of us in Olathe are considering running a glow league at Prairie center this coming fall. We are considering Monday nights. This is just a preliminary idea right now.

Don't use a flashlight at WW to light the basket. That is a no-no.

Hey Kan-man, it's kewl you guys are playin some glow. Can you post when the next time your gonna play will be? I'd also like to ask that if you put the glow rings on the baskets, please remove them when your finished, as they are litter. Thanks.

General Banter / Doubles/Mixed Doubles Interest?
« on: July 25, 2005, 07:18:38 AM »
Mixed dubs sounds like a great idea! I'd suggest a proper dress code be followed though, such as collared shirts for the men and wet T shirts for the ladies.

Prairie Center / 07-11-05 league
« on: July 20, 2005, 08:14:49 AM »
Warren,
There is a new players league at Rosedale as well. I would suggest you try both leagues. Of course at Rosedale you have to put up with that Klunel guy.

Prairie Center / League Scores
« on: July 20, 2005, 08:09:39 AM »
I started posting scores this summer for Olathe. I tried to follow Ted's method, as I feel he runs a great league and had a good system and the first system in place for posting the scores.

25 out on the Prarie enjoying some beautiful summer weather and some DG. A light breeze and more moderate temps made for some good golfing. A large group stayed for skins and putt putt (it's worth staying just to listen to Otto, Beckett, and Mike D. come up with the rules) after the round. Come on out for league. Summer is slipping away.......
For the second week in a row Leo, from Topeka, hit metal on hole #5. Last week the chastity belt, this week the basket, earning him some dollars.

Tournaments / ACE fund
« on: July 14, 2005, 07:44:43 AM »
I appreciate all that the volunteers do. I know how much work and money it takes to develop courses. I can still remember myself and Ned Smethers hand digging and forming 9 tee boxes on the original Olathe course. I can remember myself, my father-in-law, my brother in law, and my wife building/welding the 18 baskets and chain assemblys which were later sold. I remember mowing and weed eating all the putting circles before the Big O several years in a row, and hacking out, mowing and setting up a temp course two years in a row for the Big O. Of course, my labors and personal expenditures were long ago, and not nearly as signifigant as all the things that have been going on recently.
 Like I said, I REALLY appreciate all that the club, and especially the folks that get out and work their asses off to give me more places to play do.
 The club keeping the ACE fund if not hit is none of my business. I only commented because I just played the Glass Blown and thought the playoff for the ACE fund was fun.

Tournaments / ACE fund

If the ACE fund in the City of Fountains isn't hit, it is donated to the club? I thought the way the Emporia club had the "ring of fire" for the ACE fund was cooler.
