I have always thought putting a Rhino Liner style surface on the front 2ft of the pad. Then again I'm sure that is pricey.

You guys kicked all kinds of ass out there last night. I dragged my wife out for a round this afternoon, and she even commented about how cool the cliff looks next to #8.
Just a concern about the memorial; I believe the 1-year anniversary of the girl's body being found there is 8/23, the same day of the LDO. Considering the recent encounter involving a few of us at league the other week and a member of the slain woman's family (we thought she was dumping trash, turned out she was "visiting" and was moving the bags of trash we had gathered away from the memorial), the possibility occured to me that there may be some sort of gathering by friends/family of the deceased on that day.
Rick and I were actually discussing that memorial the last time I was at DGW, and we both agreed that the thing needed to go. I was going to do it one night after work, but was planning on waiting until after the 1-year anniversary since it was so close. I just hope that it being removed when it was is not construed as offensive or ill-timed by any friends or family that might gather there that day.
New courses should all hold a 1000 rating at around 62-63 and a par of 67-68. That should just be in the design. I know not every peice of land we aquire can hold that type of course but when we have the land to work with like I dont know BV or Shawnee lets UTILIZE it to it best potential.
I would be interested to know from Jack, Rick, Chap and others that deal directly with Parks and Rec's, to get new courses approved what they think about this part of Dick's post? I just wonder about using "public' parks to design and build 'pro' courses?
Here's a thought I haven't heard, and this is longer term or something that could possibly be done on new builds or as tee pads are put in at SMP etc...what about multiple tee-pads? This would be a solution similar to ball golf. A golfer might be able to shoot close to Par or below Par from the white tee's but push them back to the tips, and it's a completely different game.
I guess what immediately comes to mind is the cost of 3-4 pin locations is still cheaper than two tee pads?
