They have had many inputs from myself, and others since our meeting in last year.

Is there room for expansion on some of the shorter holes?

i can't say for sure just by looking at the layout on a topo map, but when i was out there last there was usually some space between where the pins were marked and the next tee, so i'm assuming extension is totally possible.

It will change a little bit, especially when they dry up the water, it will evolve, but it should be minimal.  The thing that we did not want to do was have it all long, so a good mixture was the deciding factor.

Wow, over 7000'. That's almost as long as WyCo when it's set short. Interesting mix of distances too. Short is 121' and long is 581'. Sounds like some variety. Cool.

So far as it is they are waiting to see how much the amphitheater that they are building will cost.  They put bids out on the baskets and it looks like innova won.  The timing on the completion of the amphitheater will decide if that bid will be used and what money they have to complete the completion of the completing disc golf compleator.  The Lee's Summit Parks Department is doing a nice job on the pads and it looks like we will have a course to play in the spring!!!!!!

All eighteen pads were completed last week. They are looking at having dual pin placements on each hole and are shooting for a completion date of around April if not sooner.  The parks department of Lee's Summit is doing a great job getting pads done in the weather that we've been having. Most of the pads have already been back filled. They take what they do seriously, and I commend them for that. It's been fun being able to help them. I'm excited to see what the disc golf community will think of the new course, it has its own character already.

DoubleBlunt took me out to see this work-in-progress on Sunday, and I am excited.  I didn't realize that this was going to be a WyCO-sized course. 

Go Team Legacy.
