The actual park in mind is basically midway between Topeka and Lawrence. After speaking with the park ranger, who lives in Bonner Springs, he said to go South off 92 on Ferguson Road. Go right (West) on 86th street and it curves left becoming Hamilton Road. This is a road that circles around that cove and back up to the North where there will be a circle type drive area. In that area is where the Corps is planning on putting in the course. Yes, I said The Corps of Engineers is willing to PAY FOR AND INSTALL EVERYTHING NEEDED. They are wanting to install the light metalic blue powder coated Mach III's. The DGA is who they are getting the baskets from and were contacted by the Corp to help design the course. In order for this to get going all the Corps is looking for is a few clubs to partner up to maintain the course. He posted this on OUR site first on Friday but ran out of time to post on the Lawrence and Topeka Club's website.
Now how attractive does that sound??
I still say we should take part.
I am just one member. Any others willing to jump on board can call me.
This area may actually be in Ozawkie, Kansas. Its right by the border of that town and Perry, Kansas.
