Well with any pirated piece of work you are screwing someone out of some money but your also talking about 2003-04.   If it was this years we may have a problem... unless we all got copies too.

Thank you Bob.  You guys rocked and what a harmonica player.  whew.  Thanks to everyone who came out.  Other than the one problem with Matt's car getting broke into the day went smooth.  And the cop that showed up to mess with us was crazy funny.  I would like to know where a one Carson Wilson was yesterday.

I will have scores posted from the day soon as I work off this hang over.

Cliff Drive / Re: Work Day? 8/16?
« on: August 22, 2008, 08:56:17 PM »
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.


Great, we're going to have a gaggle of street girls chasing us and trying to kill us with their stds.

Oh and what did you think of our little brush wall on 8?

Its easy to miss a point when everyone writes a book here.  Multi baskets are already a problem with swope and the infamous red baskets.  I'll quit giving my opinion anyway... I can't keep up with all you guys and your words...

That is not actually true.   Greens have different hole positions that play very different to a golfer.  One could be in a tricky spot behind a bunker yet against the fringe forcing you to play long and cut back .. While some sit in flat areas making it easier to get up and down.  In disc golf our different pins mimic that aspect. 

Further more it takes I believe less concrete to put in a pin than it does to pour a teepad.  Unless the pipe sticking out of the ground is expensive I don't think the cost would be too great.  Unlike the time / labor / cost or teepads.

Sure ... I would like to point out though that when I play ball golf courses I shoot a 105-120 on average.  Yes I suck .. But I still pay $35 green fees and buy $25 6 packs.  And I'm all for alternate tee pads.  So yes they would be nice.. More so that once you play for a time you hopefully will step up and no long play the "ladies" tee as it were.  No offense ladies.. I'm sure most of you have beat me once.

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?

I'm more interested what you think... What is your idea of disc golf.  Seeing every hole in front of you and having a shot at a 2 every time?  Or maybe a shot that could lead to a shot that could lead to a birdie 3?  or 4?  And have a mix.  I think that the idea of having a par 67-68 is a fine idea.  There are actually many of people who would agree with me.  This isn't about making a "Champion style course" this is about making GREAT courses.

Well there are a lot of par 2 holes out there.. Cliff drive is an example of a challenging course.. The best golfer will walk away with an 8 under if they shoot lights out.   But thats it.  I'm sure someone WILL come along and do better but not every time.  So courses need to be designed with a little more length and alot more thought.  The days of building swope or prairie center are gone.  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.  We are known for our world class courses and we should only improve and try to push the boundries to reach a new platform in our course design.   I think considering 75' "circles" around our baskets to be greens is a good start.  It will make us possibly rethink the way we design holes.  Yes they may get longer but the par 4s will be par 4s and the par 5s (dare we do it) will take 4 SHOTS to get there and one solid putt.   What about bunkers like those in Highbridge but put them around that 50-75' mark where you have to avoid areas in your landing path our your 30' back.   Though the idea has it's flaws the mere thought might interest more ideas.
