William Yates Elementary is open to the public after school hours and it has gotten a great deal of play since its insallation. This course was funded by a $5,000 grant from Sprint to battle obesity. Yates is a great course to take new players of all ages. The course is a pitch and putt type of course, but it offers great elevation, wooded shots, tunnel shots, mandos, and some alternate pads. Players need to remember that the 18 hole course is on school grounds and responsible behavior is a must. All Blue Springs Schools are Alcohol, Tobacco, and Drug free. In addition, the course has several holes that abut houses. Some neighbors have expressed concerns about the course, but many have openly welcomed the course. The course has opened up some of the over grown woody areas that were once breeding grounds for illicit behaviors. However, the school district will not tolerate innappropriate activities and Yates could be pulled if negative issues arise.
If you go out and and play Yates, please help me out and make appropriate choices. Yates has already introduced many new faces to our sport. And one of those new faces, Mike Keizer is now a course coordinator at Cliff. Grab two discs and come out and throw Yates.
