COURSE PREVIEW:

http://www.dgcoursereview.com/course.php?id=3993

Eisenhower / Melvern is more open than wooded, but there are some definite wood holes and one particular hole (15) where you drive off a hill (cliff) over water to reach the other side.  There is some landing area if you want to set up first.

This is a Kansas state park, park entrance fee is required.  There is also quite a bit of camping available from tent areas to RV's, to cabins and yurts.  They even have facilities for horse camping.  Yes, you can bring your horse to camp with you.

Park Fee schedule:

$5/vehicle
$7-19?/night camping based on how many utilities you want and that 10/3/15 is two days after the 'Off Season' rates kick in.

I will be camping at Maime's Cabin near hole 15 for sure Friday night and maybe Saturday night too.  Check in will be there at the cabin 8:30 - 9:00 am Saturday morning.

Eisenhower was born in Denison, TX. About a year later his family moved to Abilene, KS. Eisenhower graduated from Abilene High School. But, Rob will have to tell us if that's why he is pointing it out.

I knew he was more or less from Abilene. Just thought it was a neat picture.

I don't think I'm going to make it out to this one, but I love the stamps. After the event's over, I'd love a chance to buy a disc from the leftovers.

Rick g. And i went down yesterday and played. Fun little course. Nice views on a few holes of the lake from your teepad shots.   SPOILER ALERT!!!   " LOTS OF SPIDER WEBS".    Hope no one is picnicking under the shelters. If a hole has a shelter on it, your bombing it to get to the basket on the backside of it.  Looks to be fun.   Weather looking good a high of 77 and only 30% chance of rain. Hope to get to play the tournament, let you know later this week rob.
