Cliff Drive / Re: City leaders have "plan" for Cliff Drive reservoir
« on: August 14, 2008, 01:19:39 PM »
The problem with trying to do ANYTHING inside the resevoir is risky.  It unfortunatly is a bad neighbor hood that does need nice things to bring in outside intrest and run the bad off.  BUT putting anything in to a hidden spot like that is just asking for trouble.  We have enough problems with our course getting vadalized in areas where the holes are more tucked away.  I believe they should spend a little money first and take out the ONE road out that cross the top of the course, and then just have a parking lot at the top where we can start on old hold #1.  Maybe then the dumping will at least slow down on the course itself.   I don't really know what we can do to make it a better course other than playing it more often. The more disc golfers on the course the better.  Look at rosy and waterworks.  In the 90s Rosy was on the news every week for some Gay prostitution / Drug ring or some Chester the Molester.  Now the only time I see it when there is a disc golf event or some guy dyin from louging down the hill.  Spell check that Timbo.

God no.  I learned from my fathers mistake.  Sure those things are cute when you get em.  But they grow up.  Which brings me back to my first point.  Beat your childern before they grow up.  It's much tougher to do when they are in their 20's.

It's kids.. dumb ass kids.. Beat your children folks.  Quit thinking spanking your child is bad.  This is what the rest of society has to put up with due to your lack of enforcement.  I'm not saying hit them in the head of break any bones.  But take your belt off and woop em.  It only takes a few minutes a day.  Think of the great good it will do for you wrist.  That in turn will help your game.  So I would like to conclude by saying this... Beat your Children.  Win at disc golf.  thank you

Well in 500 words or less you just reitirate what I'm saying.  I would love to see a par 70-71.  Not in the current way it is illustrated at BV.  Though please no one misunderstand me. I love the course for what it is.  Dan has done a great job in cleaning up that park and making it one of if not the most beautiful disc golf course on the map. 

One thing I dont like is the Chuck F#&k which is the bunker in highbridge hills that sits next to the basket and if you land in it you go 30ft back.  That doesn't reward good shots.  and it's silly.  Now maybe do that 30-40 ft left right or behind the basket and then you make the hole riskier to a point, while still rewarding excellent shots.

boy I love this topic.  Sparks alot of discussion.  Who wants to ride a bike?

No adding holes.  And I'm not saying the course won't be pro caliber.  I think we need to get out of the midset that you have to be able to throw 400+ consistantly on every hole to be a pro.    Also you can make a 340ft hole very challenging while at the same time giving a break from throwing your longest driver.  Golf is a game of the brain not of the arm.  If that were so ball golfers would use at least a three wood on every hole.  I know disc golf wants to distance itself from ball golf and be it's own self but you can't take away the mental game.   It has to be FAIR.  Not "maybe it's not your type of course".  That in itself is ludicrious.  You should never design a course with one style of golf in mind.  Understand where I'm coming from.  This piece of land could be just as long in footage and play MUCH more like a "pro-caliber" course.    It's one of the rare occasions where we as disc golfers have this much land to play with.  Utilize the course better and create more of a balance between physical and mental.

Not "my" kind of course... pfft

I dont think the design is so far fetch, I believe the design was tryin to utilize more of the elevation rather than the trees.  Though I do believe there should have been more thought incorporating the trees.  BV's layout has seemingly been very widely discussed since its erection.  I think the only puzzling thing about it is the fact that there is NO HOLE UNDER 300ft.  YET you call them par 3's.  When if you look at the SSA on most of those supposed par 3's you'll find they rank around 3.5.  Which to a pro is a scratch three.  Or in other terms... BORING.   In the reconstruction I ask only one thing.. Be a true "golf" course and give it 7 REAL par 3's  And I dont mean hole #10's version of a par three.

If your going to wear people out playing at least make it a fair course which allows golfers to walk away saying MAN that was a challenge but boy was it fun to play.  Most of the time people walk off and say... Well nothing cause they are tired and ready to sleep.

Your just jealous because YOU have never beaten him. 

I don't think mere jealousy quite covers it. I do good to stay out of DFL most of the time. But you don't hear me complaining... very often.... do you?... cause if you do, tell me. I don't want to be a whiner.

Well Kevin if you were a whiner I'm sure Andy would let you know in picture form.

Now I didn't read your guys threads cos you write WAY TO MUCH.  but, BV is a good course though the lack of TRUE par threes is ridiculous.  THe best idea is Shorten up the stupid holes and lengthen the dumb ones.

It was 2003 that I played in the Wide Open with Arturo.  His round ratings average about 870.  He's only about 15 strokes per round better now!

Well once again I'm wrong.  The good news is.. I beat Arturo.  HAHAHHA.. I kicked his ARSE!!!
