No news on the course as of yet. Plans are to have the pins in by the City of Fountains Classic July 16th.

I know Dan and Jim are working hard on making this the "Best Course in the World". I believe there will be a big need for help at some point. When that time comes at will be posted.

There is a nine hole "Juniors Course" set up, that is interesting and fun to play if you already haven't.

Stay tuned here as more information will soon follow.............. 8)

In know that we want to use it for the Wide Open Doubles as well, so hopefully the pins and a temp setup will be in prior to that.

Checked this place out last weekend while visiting KC.  I saw at least 6 baskets, but didn't try to figure out where the tees were supposed to be.  Seems like it's mostly open with tons of trees on the perimeter.  The area looked more interesting in the south side of the park.  Is that where the back nine will be?  

Gotta say this looks like a great course waiting to happen.  With the characters that hang out in this area though... I hope there is no trouble.

No, I was referring to some baskets they already have in for the 18 holer.  Someone said that the front 9 was in, but not the back.

I played the 9 holer Jr. course.  I was a little disappointed.  I was hoping for short, but technical.  Instead, I see that the holes are all wide open.  Same type of shot on most every hole.  The only hole that I like was #4 going down towards the water with one tree on the right.

They are still working on the final design of the course ( i.e. where to put shorter tee's) the fornt nine have been decided on, it's the back nine that they are still tinkering with. Yes there are some baskets scattered around the park, if you played there the last time the temp course was set up you would know where the tee's are. It's too hard to explain in words on a computer to tell anyone. My suggestion would be to come out for the KC Wide Open and play the doubles round or make it to the up coming work days that will be posted as more information is avilable.I'm not sure to waht degree the city will be involved with the pads Tim, I would guess that it will be the club that does the work

Who's going to play this weekend?  Bummer no H20.  No doubles before KCWO meant I couldn't interrogate anyone on the course design.  Maybe after this weekend?  Dick said that it is the longest in the world.  Even if this is given as not true, to make such a claim would mean it is at least 1200 feet?  Post when the maps are finished.  I gotta see this!

I don't know the exact length of the course, but Blue Valley Park is around 360 arces, and the course is using about 160-180 arces. There diffently not another course in the world like it. I believe this course will have a hand in changing the face of Disc Golf. Every single hole is a challenge, and makes you think about your shot. Lots of elevation changes (with an awsome view every where you look), it is described as Water Works on steriods! Which holds very true in my humble opinion. The maps have been made, and will be avilable soon. Lots of par 5's and par 4's. This course is the next step in Disc Golf, and I can't wait to see the touring pro's play it at the next KC Wide Open.

Ummm Maps.... Well I just walked the course today it is very long Think I got the lay down figured out.
Lets see
1:Right of Shellter house 2"Little one" Out toward the pond Very long On way by look to the left to see Basket 9
2:Left of 1's basket down hill
3:Right off 2 on road bottom side of pond out into the back side of course
4-7:in back side of course Did not walk that part did not find tell I was driving around
8:Left of basket 2 way out to the left of the road
9:Left of 8 back a little by tree out though the wooded area back toward basket 1
10:Right of 9 back to the shelter house
11:Looking at shelter house its to the right But you throw back toward 8's area
12:Back to shelter house
13-16:Did not walk was tired Very long walk but it was back up and down to and from the house
17-18:On other side of the road from the shelter house did not walk but drove past 18 did not see 17 but it has to be right there some ware

All and All looks to be very very challangeing course.  Might take 3-4 hours to play on a hot day Bring plenty of water and arm lots of arm...
I think wenday me and a couple of my buddys are going to play it about 4.
