Thanks for running a great event Brett and Brandon! A little less wind... yeah, that'd be nice.
Props to CD for taking 2nd in Masters. The advanced masters guys didn't fair as well but did have a great time on a truly great course. The design of the additional holes was excellent. Interesting use of trees and roads on D and E.
You guys from KC that didn't make it out need to consider it for next year. This is a really well run event on one of the best courses I have ever played. Eighty-seven people played this year from six different states. It was a great crowd. I'm already looking forward to next year!!
That's exactly what a round 9 basket is supposed to look like. I don't know if all of the stones are still there but the practice basket at Rosedale has incremental stones like that and it is great for practicing your putting. They go from about three or four feet out to about thirty.
There's four of us from the KCFDC coming. We hope to make it in time for doubles but that will remain to be seen. Leaving town about noon on the 9th
Kevin, CD, Doc and Ed.
Anyone else from KC heading out?
I'm telling you, you need to play Hays!! This is a great time on a great course.
Where's the player's party this year? Last year was a blast. I remember that girl from Colorado getting hit in the head with a mini that was thrown from across the room. She and her boyfriend were good sports about it. Especially after I bought her a shot of whiskey as compensation.

Five showed up for league but only three played. Two were on their way to Omaha for A Call to Arms, myself and Doc. We got things going and hit the road.
It was a nice evening for golf and Tom Butler proved it with a nice 58.

It was good to see Ned Smethers. Thanks for paying us a visit old friend. You can wear your KCFDC t-shirt proudly back in Kentucky. (Wash it a couple times first though. The dye on them will come off on you if you don't give it a wash or two.)
WyCo design credit should probably just go to the KCFDC. But the primary designers were, Mike L. Wesley, Jack Carmack, and Kevin Montgomery. Lots of input from others was used though including the thoughts and ramblings of one Dr. Ace Mason. Many individual holes have individual credits.
I don't recall the exact date the baskets were planted but 2001 is correct.
Someone should pop in with more info on Prairie Center. I know Tom Butler was instrumental with this one. Tom, details?
We play the area on the hillside to the right of the road on #13 as inbounds when teeing from the long tee only. But this is an exception to the rule. We have always played the road and beyond is out-of-bounds for all events inlcudng league at all KC courses. Come to think of it, throwing across the road and still being inbounds is the exception here. But it's obvious because that's where the target is.
