Thanks Dan,
Last week I used short pads where available. They ended up with 1/2 of daylight left.
From  Here to Eternity (Fall) we will have a firm start of 6:00 PM.

Swope was just mowed mostly and is excellent.

Re: Swope Pin Settings Gold Course

The Gold Course is in at Swope for the foolhardy. We are using the red practice baskets for now.
I will have maps of the revised front nine in the mag rack.
Note: It is not like previous years. OB will be in play in the Rock Gardens. I am not sure about mandatory on 1.
It goes: #1 standard to the railroad tie platform, #2 tee is regular #4 tee shooting to regular #5 pin long left (in the valley), #3 tee  is past the house and road shooting north to Starlight, across Pretender Lake (ob). #4 tee is Starlight shooting south across Pretender Lake left hillside. #5 tee is right of 4 pin shooting south to
Administration Bldg. #6 and the rest follow the regular course. Also note: 2 pin positions have been moved on #9, a little right of their previous locations.
Anything to keep you guessing.
If you are confused it is your own damn fault.

Awful is as awful does, to paraphrase Forrest Gump.

Though not marked now, it will be at the Wife Open, ooopps Wide Open,
There is a lot of green matter growing on it now, but use your imagination on the worst possible OB delineation.

Going northbound there is a glimmer of hope if you keep to the left roadside grass area. It is only est. 150 OB there. Of course you are tight to the road which is also OB.
Going southbound it is pretty much all or nothing. A weenie arm like myself would short pitch to the nearside of the OB. Though lame, it may give you 50-75 feet advance to attempt to get across Pretender Lake.
Also if you shoot straight across, maybe even a little to the right, you have a chance of making it across (est 250 ft). You have to work probably two shots to make it back to the pin. This is way better than multiple OB attempts.

See Tincup, the movie

Normally, Swope Gold hole #1 would start from hole#3 tee pad and finish at the placement southbound across the parking lot. Why the change? And why is hole #1 placed short at the railroad ties?

The Disc Golf Gods  do  what they will.
Like all angels I am only but the messenger.

Update:  Pretender Lake will be OB.
There will me a mandatory on hole #1.

The Wide Open layout With the Gold Course front nine is now in effect for league.
Last week we played only Pros on Gold.
This week will be all levels, testing, testing.

Solstice Doubles will be set short and put back for WO07.

Changed things up pretty good last night, including moving 2 to the long placement by the Pro Shop for League (can't lock at this pin placement).  Thought we were getting close to a Gold setting on the standard course....obviously it was Fools Gold after Arturro's 45.  Planning on going even longer for next Tuesday....see if we can get Arturro back in the 50s.

Pins Moved....
 #1 Long
 #2 Middle (red basket short)
 #3 Long across street
 #4 Long (red basket short)
 #5 Long Left (red basket short)
 #7 Right
 #10 Middle
 #15 Long Pennisula
 #16 Corner (red basket short)
 #17 Right (red basket left)

thanks dclabe!
moving the holes is a lot easier with the cashen carriage, an old man like you is lucky to make it thru 18 holes much less lugging poleholes from sleeve to sleeve.
