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!!!

Congrats Arturo.  I remember playing in the wide open several years ago when he was still an am.  Man, his game has improved!

My 30th b-day was yesterday.  Now I have something else to remember it with.

Anyone want to do the research?  What is the most money ever payed for a disc golf ace?  This one has got to be in the all time top ten!

I might be wrong but Arturo has never played AM..

Bag Tags / Re: 2008- What number ya got?
« on: August 09, 2008, 01:17:11 PM »
Well the bag tag challenge actually gets a face lift every year before its distributed so that argument doesn't fly, and its only for the first week of league unless you hold on to sed tag.  Now if that does take effect you now know you can have a shot at 1-20 in the first two weeks of league if you just show up.  And thanks for all you hard work at the course.  The same thanks I get when I work or anyone else.  Oh and the occasional beer and sandwich.
