Fellow Disc Golfers,
 
YES, its true. Saturday morning Nov 10th 2007 the baskets were  put into place and the course is open for play!!

The official course map and rules can be viewed/printed from Johnson County PRD link

http://jcprd.com/parks_facilities/map_smp_disc_golf.cfm


A variety of other parks to be enjoyed can be found at http://jcprd.com/parks_facilities/maps.cfm.

NOTICE: Hole 4 has been removed. Previous hole 5 is now hole 4. A new hole 6 has been added across path from Hole 5, shooting towards the Administration building.



Please remember:
No Alcohol - will be enforced
Yield to all Pedestrians
Dogs on Leashes
On or across all roads or paths is OB
In or over creek on hole 2 is OB
Most fun wins!

We will be using flags for the tee boxes until we have a solid idea where the permanent pads will go. Soon we will install paver stones to define the tee boxes.
ENJOY!

Dirk

Yeah, but this link on the JCPRD site does NOT have the new configuration....that is what I meant.  It's a better map with hole distances and such.  I didn't even look at the Google Earth map.

Jim at JCPRD has been very responsive about getting info updated on their site. I'm confident he will have that info updated soon.

Atleast Pleasant Hill has a variety of shots and not just hyzer, hyzer, hyzer....oh wait...another hyzer.....ok...now what.....oh a hyzer...I think I have that....what do you do on this hole...umm..probably a hyzer.

Shawnee Mission park needs a complete redesign in my opinion...with the land that is there to be utilized it is a very poor layout.  Heck playing it backwards looks more fun than regular.

Another rare occasion when I actually agree with Dick....let's not let this happen too often!

I would argue SMP has a lot more anny's then PH and it's what 1000' ft longer? (SMP is 6300ft).
I's not the entire back that is hyzer....hyzer etc. 11, 13, 15 18....10, 12, 14, 16 and 17 are straight are anny's (or is it anni?)

Both are new and could use a few tweaks here and there but overall it's good to see two new courses in the area none the less....

So how's things out there after this summer?  I know they played the tournament there last weekend, are the tee pads in?  Is it still bad with the ivy and bugs?  Are they dog friendly (what's the likelihood of being hassled)?  I've not been out there at all yet, so kinda curious what to expect, was thinking about playing tomorrow.
Thanks,
JP
