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.

Look out Feldberg the next world champ has arrived!

 ;D

tehehe  I told ya you were gunna get one of us...  We knew he was coming... We knew..

Well I already planned on coming now that pool league is finished for me.  sooo plllltttt.. Now back to the -100 par.. hehe

2560
-100 actually is not good for the sport.  It is some what ridiculous.  I would rather see the winner of worlds walk away with a -30 or something like that.  -100 just makes the sport look easy and chincy.  We as players know that what dave did was something amazing, but to on lookers they just think .. -100?  oh well that sounds easy.

I just hope that when my round is over I'm not singing the blues.

It's going to be hard to sing the blues when your eyeballs deep in beer food and fun.  Unless your singing (or what we will call singing) with the band .

If anyone would like there is always room for a free form jam from 11-1.  It will have to be aucostic so we can save the generator for the band

Cliff Drive / Re: Work Day? 8/16?
« on: August 15, 2008, 01:47:21 PM »
There will be 3 work days before the LDO.  8-19 8-20 8-21.  We will work in the evening around 6.  So no leagues for Jack and myself.   Monday night Jack has said after he gets league going he will be working .. So anyone available there will be things to do.. We are making a plea to the parks to give us one more mow this week and the rest will just be clean up the park and finishing up hole #1.

Moving the trash down to the pile on #8 is a great idea.  If it is not moved in time for the party we will use it to dump the parties trash in order to keep it all together for the city.

Anything you can do on any day at any time is appreciated...
