It was only a matter of time before the fences were coming. All the Blue Springs schools now have large fences keeping the natives caged. It definitely looks a lot different but student safety is more important than aesthetics of large institutionally looking fences.
There is a gate by hole 1 now and that does help compared to the old fence that did not have a gate. Overall i think they did a good job of adding gates in appropriately places-hole 1 has 2 gates, #3 has a gate, #5 has a gate to enter from long tee. Safety of students comes first and the dg course is only mildly affected and i am glad we still have it there.
At this point, to have 18 holes through the woods, across creeks, up and down hills all an elementary school is still a great thing and will only help in the growth of our sport. I am jealous that i do not get to use that course for my PE classes at work. My school has a 4 hole loop and the kids love it, but it is hard to beat playing in the woods like WYE as a kid.
