Saw this last night and thought...hmmm? Sounds like near Cliff. Purposely kept my mouth shut as the wife isn;t happy when we play there after the body incident a few years ago. No comment, she's a little too Johnson County sometimes!

If you walk out about 100' or so from the pad, there's a little line of faded orange spray paint about a foot long that sticks out into the street. It is difficult to notice and since it wasn't discussed prior to play, I'm not surprised that you didn't see it. I'm glad this was brought up today, and I will see to it ASAP that it is repainted in a more noticeable fashion.

Keizer, one more thing:

We need to paint over the words "Drop Zone" on the pavement on hole #17 at Cliff.  No sense in folks getting confused there.

Gracias.

Remind her that people get shot in Johnson County, also. No one's really safe anywhere.

Don't worry about it.  I'll take care of it.  We haev to paint the entire upper course.  We need to do it with String and anchors.  We also haev to string up OB on #3 with many flags.

Also as the following needs....never mind, I'll start a new thread

Chappy, I think you're being accused of sarcasm here. (Which is what your statement looks like to someone who doesn't know the situation with #17.) :D

I was actually serious. :)  The pin will be on the peninsula, so no drop zone is needed on #17.

Cliff Drive is set for worlds.  We can work around all the pins now and not wonder.  They were moved before league last night.  Keizer already painted this.
