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?

Swope / Out of Bounds Question - Holes 13 & 14
« on: August 18, 2005, 09:18:19 am »
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.    :D

Rained Out!  Sort of.....

12 hardy souls showed up with the weather looking like it was definitely going to storm, and it did. We passed out the cards and headed to our holes just about the time it started raining. Three holes into the round three of the four cards headed for shelter J while one card continue to slog on through the downpour. To no avail however, they too had to stop after six holes. After about a 40 minute rain delay we took to the course as six teams of doubles and played the front nine (1 thru 8 and 18 ).

Mike D./Jeff H. =   -2 ($20)
Tom B./Doc N.  =   -1 ($10)
Chad/Rick R. =   E
Rick M/Michael =   E
Cecil/Dave H.  =   E
Kevin/Dean =   +4 (Huh?)

League this Friday. Be there.......     8)

Perhaps you should have added 150, 200 and 250 to your list. Even my girlfriend's son can throw 150 so I wouldn't go shorter than that.

This is okay to a point Dan. There should still be some newbie friendly courses around to get folks started. If I were just starting out in this sport I wouldn't want to play BV, Rosedale stretched out, etc.. all the time. There is always a need for a short, friendly, accessible course to get people interested and allow them to practice. We have the junior course at BV for that now but I feel that at least one of the major courses should be kept short in a rotation with the others that are set more difficult. If we want to expand the sport  we need to make sure it is accessible and not too intimidating for new players.

I agree that new players need to get used to the idea of the sport evolving but they are, after all, just getting started. I also agree that the sport needs to evolve to continue to challenge players at all skill levels. But calling these players whiners and dismissing their concerns is not conducive to making them feel welcome in our community of disc golfers.

If we could come up with a schedule of what course(s) will be set short and then publish it on the marquees and website that would go a long way towards making new players feel welcome. I will bring this up at the next EC meeting. Up to now I haven't seen much of a pattern to when courses are changed. It seems to be at the whim of the course coordinator.  and being a course coordinator myself that is how I approach it, right or wrong.

Tournaments / 21st Frontier Open in Hays Kansas
« on: August 10, 2005, 05:18:39 pm »
I played this tourney last year and had a blast. I highly recommend it and hope more KC players make it out this year. The course is excellent. One of my all-time favorites. It winds up and down and back and forth across a small river and has some really interesting shots. If you've never played Frontier Park before you're missing out.

From memory I count 65 at Rosedale. I think that's probably the most. A couple of holes there have five pins and several have four. Swope may have Rosie beat but I don't know that course as well. WyCo has 41 to be exact. 40 actual pins but one that can be used twice for #7 or #9.

The placements at WW are a good mixture right now.

#1 - short right
#2 - long deep
#3 - medium center
#4 - long right
#5 - short left
#6 - long - around the corner
#7 - in the middle up on the hill
#8 - middle placement
#9 - left next to the road
#10 - middle placement
#11 - long
#12 - long
#13 - short right
#14 - middle placement
#15 - right short
#16 - long (dangerously near the road)
#17 - short right
#18 - medium - up on the hill right.

That's from memory after playing last night.  My descriptions may or may not be accurate. How's that for a disclaimer?

#1 is a classic tunnel shot with the big trees and all but my favorite is probably #14. It has three really good pin placements. The short one in front of the pond is a rather tough birdie opportunity, the left one way down by the road is a great long downhill shot with all of the big trees to contend with and the one on the other side of the pond (where it is now) is a great risk/reward hole with trouble all around, pond, road, nasty brush below the damn. That hole just has a lot of personality. The two long pins are feel good threes and the short pin is a satisfying birdie. And to top it off, you can use the short pin as an alternate for #15 when teeing from below the damn with a blind shot across the pond. We plan to put and alternate tee pad in there one of these days.

There's lots of good holes out there in my opinion though. Some clunkers too but you have to take the good with the bad on most courses. They can't all be Water Works.

I just sent you a copy of the only map I currently have for WyCo via e-mail. I hope that helps. Once I get a more formal map done I will post it on the WyCo course page.

There are three placements. The original dogleg through the gap and to the right plays a bit easier than the position I am about to pull it from. That position is through the gap and to the left up near the road. The third placement down by the creek is newer than those two and actually plays a bit easier than both of them according to the hole-by-hole stats I'm doing. A lot more threes there than on the original dogleg right.

Alexsy Bubis hit it during the Wide Open. Unfortunately for him it was during a rain delay. Fortunately for the crowd it was while a lot of people happened to be standing around so they got to see it.
