General Banter / League doubles
« on: February 23, 2006, 11:20:18 pm »
I have volunteered to run a doubles league.  We talked possibly about starting it at 10:00 on Saturdays.  I would prefer switching courses from week to week.  As far as the format I haven't got that ironed out.

Winter Leagues / Prairie Center Saturday

The ace fund has grown towards $500 (might be over this).  Come on out and take a crack at it.  Tee off at 11:00.  Later-Bob Hayett

Prairie Center / Future pin placements and new tee boxes desired for '06
« on: February 19, 2006, 06:56:22 pm »
This is your course coordinator Bob Hayett.  We made a lot of changes (hopefully for the better and safer) recently.  I would like to see continued progress this year.  I'm planning an additional 12 pin placements throughout the course, and I hope we will have an additional seven new tee box locations as well.  Some of these changes should be accomplished by Olathe Parks and Rec, but most will be done by the club (KCFDC).  I would also love to see new tee signs (I prefer ones with diagrams as opposed to actual photos of the holes) that we can put right on the existing tee markers out there.  I'll be contacting the arborist soon to see if they have any extra trees they can plant since a good number of diseased pine trees had to be removed.  The Saturday league is still happening with anywhere from four to eleven players, as well as the Monday night glow league.  Before the recent cold snap there were a lot of new faces out at the course.  I'm hoping we can get some of them to play in the leagues and also join the club.  If you happen to see them tell them about the leagues and club.  Most of them don't even know the KCFDC exists.  Always remember, clear any work you'd like to do out there with me first. Come check out the leagues, all players are welcome to play.  Later-Bob Hayett

Prairie Center / More changes at Prairie Center
« on: January 08, 2006, 03:21:30 pm »
With the good weather the last few weekends there's been a large turnout of players at Prairie Center.  Most of the players really like the new holes.  This year I hope to make some more changes, mainly some new teepads and pin placements on most holes.  I hope Olathe parks and rec can help us with some of the erosion around some of the teepads, as well as plant grass on some of the bare fairways (especially on number 2 fairway).  We still have Saturday morning league at 11:00 and Tom Butler is running a glow league Monday evenings at 6:00.  If you have never played glow you should get out and try it, it's a blast.  I hope to see more of you at the course.  Later-Bob Hayett

Winter Leagues / Winter league is on this Saturday 11:00 in Olathe
« on: December 20, 2005, 10:02:07 pm »
There WILL be Saturday league at Olathe 11:00 if enough people show up.  If you haven't done so already, come check out the new holes 12-16.  Have a merry Christmas.  Later-Bob Hayett

Winter Leagues / Prairie Center Saturday morning league
« on: November 27, 2005, 10:17:17 am »
Just a reminder that every Saturday at 11:00 we have our Winter league at Prairie Center (usually random doubles).  A few weeks back Bryan Guthrie and Brad Merys shot a sizzling 41.  Come out and check out the new holes 12-16 (which are not totally complete yet but open for play).  Later-Bob Hayett  :D

Prairie Center / new holes #12-16
« on: November 24, 2005, 04:19:55 pm »
Everyone seems to really like the new holes.  Eventually on number 12 we will be throwing to the old number 15 long pin placements through a narrow ten foot opening in the trees.  On number 13 we will have a pin deep left and another straight out.  Also parks and rec is planting a few trees just to the right so I'll have a harder time pulling a bad shot towards the soccer stands.  On number 14 I'm putting a pin deep left down by the lake.  On number 15 parks and rec has already scraped out where a long tee pad is going in.  Also the 15 fairway eventually will be ALL the way up to that row of big trees WAY UP the hill where I will put another pin placement (could end up being a par 4).  I hope to install a long tee on 16 way back and next to the fence.  It'll make that hole look awesome.  Occasionally we will play 16 to the old long 12 pin placement.  Also we put in a long number 2 pad.  I hope to put in a long number 9 tee pad and another pin placement for 9, as well as a few other pins on some other holes.  If you have any other cool ideas for new pads or pin placements, let me know.  I had a number of other people out to look at holes 12-16 to contribute ideas and I think it worked out great.  Come on out to Saturday morning league (we usually play doubles) at 11:00 and Monday evening there's a glow league that starts just after 6:00 hosted by Tom Butler.   :D  :D  :D

Prairie Center / possible new locations for holes 12-16
« on: October 19, 2005, 11:22:30 pm »
I was walking around this past Saturday and saw a new way to organize holes 12-16. I am meeting the head of Olathe Parks and Rec next week to go over this idea, and if he approves the design, we could be playing these holes the opposite way we play them now.  Hopefully this will be approved and we can proceed with the new design.  I'll keep everyone posted on it.  This coming Monday is the last league and then the following Saturday morning at 11:00 we start Winter league.  Come on out and have a great time.  Later-Bob Hayett  :D

Prairie Center / start time for league Monday at Prairie Center
« on: September 29, 2005, 11:22:37 pm »
Just a reminder that start time for league Monday October 3 is 5:30 p.m.  Also I am meeting with Olathe Park & Rec Monday to start serious planning for moving hole no. 12 and also moving the tee pad for hole no.15.  I also have other ideas to improve the course which I hope to see some progress this Fall and Spring '06.  Also when the clock moves back an hour we will start league Saturdays at 11:00 a.m.  We usually play doubles, however we may play other games (wolf,skins,etc.) at times.  Later-Bob Hayett :)

Prairie Center / Earlier start time for Monday league and new pin placement
« on: September 18, 2005, 11:51:04 pm »
We are going to tee off at 5:45 the next few weeks and 5:30 the month of October.  For those who don't already know, we have the new pin placement installed on hole number 2.  Later-Bob Hayett :D

Prairie Center / hole number 18
« on: August 19, 2005, 11:08:17 pm »
Please play hole no.18 from the sidewalk (tee pad between yellow lines) adjacent to the shelter to the practice basket.  In Monday night league the road and parking area to the right is o.b. and the sidewalk to the left is o.b.  Hopefully we will install a new basket for no.2 and can play hole no.18 from the tee pads again.

Prairie Center / missing no.2 basket
« on: July 13, 2005, 10:48:46 pm »
Yes, it  looks like some low-life pilfered no.2.  We are in the process of getting a replacement.  in the meantime play no.2 hole to the island where I have put the no.18 basket.  Play hole no.18 from the sidewalk adjacent to the long tee (between yellow lines) to the practice basket.  In the league we have been calling the road and parking area to the right out-of-bounds and the sidewalk out-of-bounds to the left.  Please check before you throw that nobody is walking on the sidewalk or road.  Sorry for the inconvenience.  Later...Bob Hayett

Prairie Center / from the course coordinator and league director
« on: July 01, 2005, 11:36:05 pm »
I wish to thank all  players who come out to Prairie Center League on Monday evenings.  The league is one of the best things I look forward to each week.  We will be playing July 4.  Also, in the next few months I hope we can move hole No. 12.  If anybody can help, let me know at 913-888-8863 (business phone) or 913-940-3021 (cell).  Hopefully we will be scheduling a work day.  Thanks-Bob Hayett :D
