How are the pins set up right now?  What are there like 40 total pin placements out at Water Works?  18 out of 40 would be all short while 40 out of 40 would be all long.  This might not be the best way to describe the length of the course, but its one way to convey the pin settings in general.

Might be coming up this Sunday for some Blue Valley and Water Works!

Better play water works first, because you're not going to want to play it at all after a round at Blue Valley

The placements at WW are a good mixture right now.

#1 - short right
#2 - long deep
#3 - medium center
#4 - long right
#5 - short left
#6 - long - around the corner
#7 - in the middle up on the hill
#8 - middle placement
#9 - left next to the road
#10 - middle placement
#11 - long
#12 - long
#13 - short right
#14 - middle placement
#15 - right short
#16 - long (dangerously near the road)
#17 - short right
#18 - medium - up on the hill right.

That's from memory after playing last night.  My descriptions may or may not be accurate. How's that for a disclaimer?

That does sound like a good mix.  I checked out that site... playdg.com.  The zooming and target locators are awesome.

Speaking of pin placements... which course has the most?  I thought WW had around 40.  Wyco has, what around 36?  Swope and Rosedale both have at least 60 each, eh?  Always wondered about this.  KC has always impressed me with all the pins!

From memory I count 65 at Rosedale. I think that's probably the most. A couple of holes there have five pins and several have four. Swope may have Rosie beat but I don't know that course as well. WyCo has 41 to be exact. 40 actual pins but one that can be used twice for #7 or #9.

I was looking at cards from last night and noticed that Mike Murphy birdied holes 12 - 18. That includes 12 long left, 14 middle, 16 long and 18 up the hill right. Nice Run Mike!

While that's good advice for the normal mortal man, you obviously don't know schoen-hopper.. he'd play two rounds at blue valley, running thewhole thing, then stop by water works for two more rounds.  He'd probably stop at another course on the drive home and play 1-1.5 rounds there if he had enoguh day light.

My b-day today is indeed reminding me of my mortality.  Actually, "time constraints" made it so that I didn't get the chance to play the mighty BV yestereday.  Next time I make it up to KC, I will have to get some people together and play this monster.

Had fun at Water Works though.  TJ got to see me card a 6, 2 4's, and 5 2's all on the front 10.  Can't get off the E there.  Shot 1 and and even making like 30 some rounds I've shot out there between 53 and 56.  First round was family golf.  Some of us didn't even get the round finished and it still took 3 hours.  I got through a second round by myself in under an hour.  

Those days of 12 courses in 2 days may be over.  There is a disc golf marathon coming up though....

11 Holes in 3 Hours...

Yeah.. I had things to do and places to be.. I never expected 3 hours to play the round man!  Sorry I couldn't finish with you.  Those family golf rounds really cut into your available time!

Water Works is right at the top of my list on best courses to play.  It's great how you can see almost every hole on the course from the parking lot.  

Holes 1, 6, & 8 all have several pin placements that are distinctly different, with each one of them being incredible.  What are everyone's favorites holes out here?
