changes acoming
« on: January 19, 2009, 12:17:04 PM »
The the new president, in disc golf, and the United states, it only makes sense that we try our hand at change in the dcisc golf community.

So I will do my best and work on the changes at Cliff Drive.

Here are a few if you have not played recently.

1-new teeing area, deeper, and to the south of the older location, look for more work to be done here.

2-cleaning of the side of the hill-new basket soon

3-new lower tee pad, makes an interesting shot now, a RHBH, will have to force a STABLE disc over, and have it flex to get there now, a LHBH, will probably have to tee with a forehand shot.  Thanks to Keizer

4-just keeping it clean baby-new basket soon

5-cleaning up and keeping the hill side open, will need a better stairs to climb though.

path to 5-6 new steps, thanks to Keizer and his man Don

6-keeping it clean baby

7-Look for a new placement way deep in the woods.  The area was cleared out by Keizer, then I went with him to clean it up some more, but this new placement will have a tricky shot for the deep placement, with the road as an OB possible.  Also the Teeing area will likely move north ahead of the water drainage issues, or could move way longer deep.

8-return of the old long placement is coming soon.

9-unsure, but there is a shelf long left of existing placement that I have thought about for awhile....

10-there will be a new placement to the left of the short, but not as long as the long, and place that hill drop off as an issue for the green.

11-new hole configuration coming soon, will be shorter, and the road will come into play.

12-why mess with the devil?  It hurts enough people already.

13-in my best HOMER, BORING, I need to plant trees, and shubbery

14-status quo

15-New placement behind the big tree to come

16-love this hole, doubt anything happens.

17-Tee area to move forward 70'-80', new pin placement on the island to come

18-probably status quo, though it depends on the water fountain going in.

And of course tee pads.  The hope is to form up the boxes this month on all except 1 & 7 which will require extra work, stay tuned as this course gets ready to be disected, and made fun of during the worlds.

His name isn't Don, it's Dave. David Owens, to be exact. He's helped out a bunch at Cliff so I want to make sure we get his name right.

I would really like to take the former option here and remove the water and mud from the equation completely. Weird-- I was thinking of this very thing today, Jack, and almost sent you an email about it...

No dude, he really is my man. Not in a proprietary nor marital sense, of course, but in the sense where one would stop, point with both hands, and say "My man!"

Keiser, I was out at Cliff this weekend with some folks from Iowa, and was very impressed wit the additions to the course.  The new tee for #3 is pretty sweet; it's a shot I can't think of being in KC right now (controlled flex shot).  The stairs were very nice between #5 and #6.

I am having trouble picturing where the new tee-pad is for hole 3...

Glad you liked it, Timko. Yeah, I can't think of any other hole like it, either...

Big Sky, if you're standing on the "old" #3 pad and looking at the basket, the "new" pad would be down to your right, closer to the road, and behind you about 40' or so. It changes the angle you take to get up the fairway, and like Timko said, it takes a controlled flex shot to get it up to the pin.

If you're talking about the old trail that runs along the slope, the pad is pretty much straight down to the road from there. If you walk down the trail from 2's long placement to 3's "old" pad, just keep walking past the pad and then look to your right. There's even a little orange sign hanging on a tree that says "New #3 ---->" on it.

BTW, Penney, I'd like to meet up with you at Cliff sometime to talk about the work we've got to get done there. Call me when you have some free time on your hands.

Penney, its about 30' behind where we were going to put it, and slightly west.
