i drove out to look around today

there are blue flags that i'm guessing representing the tee boxes

there are also tall poles that may represent pin placements

i also spoke with someone from their parks department and they said that they are waiting on the baskets and they will be installed immediately when they get them

doesn't look like strictly a juniors course, but it isn't blue valley either...

the holes looked like 300 apiece maybe

the guy who came to the wide open and told us about it is a former member of one of the several clubs that preceded the kcfdc. he was very good at working independently, which never seemed to work out too good for the club.
it wouldn't be surprising if he "designed" the course his ownself. of course, he may not have had much land to work with and most likely did the best he could with limited resources and without having to bother anyone else for input.

I went out and checked progress yesterday.  Looks like the tee pads are in (fairly small 8' by 4' roughly), but no pins have been installed.  With the heavy rain that we got yesterday I'm not sure if they can even work on it this week :-\.  The course looks pretty short, and short term it doesn't appear to have many options for more difficult pins.  However, the lake is pretty scenic and there is camping available.  Also, for those with young children the Savannah Land petting Zoo is across the street.

it's on lake road and 164th street, on the SE corner of the Pleasant Hill City Lake..

you can either take 50 highway east to 7 highway south into pleasant hill and follow the signs to the city lake, or you can just take smart road south off of 50 east and follow it all the way to the lake...it's about 5-6 miles down smart and you can see the lake when you're coming up on it, when you get onto the gravel part of Smart Road you're getting close.
