Courses you never played before
« on: August 12, 2010, 10:39:13 AM »
Our list of local courses has grown so much that I have yet to play several courses.
I thought it would be interesting to see what other people have yet to play certain courses.
If responding please put courses in the order you are itching to play first and the least of your concerns to play last.

Old Pike and William Yates tie
Legacy Park
The 9 hole course by Park University
Shawnee Mission

I think there is a Junior High course out there somewhere. I'd put that one in there after Legacy if so.
The Junior High course in Belton is non existant now though. I drove through there a few months back and its gone.

Are you talking about the Blue Valley course in KS?  I helped with the layout but have not played it yet, I am not even sure if they used the layout I suggested.....or are you talking about California Trail?

I also tried to find the Belton Jr. High course back in March, with no luck. Is it gone or just on hiatus?

I would like to play:

Old Pike
Ted's Dread
Thornfield
USM - Leavenworth, is that local? It would be a looonnnggg drive from SE of P.Hill for me (but then everything is a long way from the sticks).

USM is about 15 minutes north of WyCo and these days Leavenworth is considered by most people to be part of the KC Metro area. So, I guess it would be considered local. But if you plan a trip up to USM you should include the extra trip up to Atchison since you'll be driving so far anyway.

Yes California Trail. Thank you Jack

Where's the Blue Valley course in Kansas?

I know of a trialer court park off Kansas Ave. that has 3 or 4 holes?? been awhile since I've been there.
Its in the Bonner Springs area that has some old, old Swope baskets.

My list in order:

Young Park at Blue Springs
Old Pike
Yates Elementary
Parkville
JCCC - Is this course in the ground or just being talked about/planned?
Blue Valley, KS - Ditto the question above...

I think I've played everything else.

Old Pike
Ted's Dread
Thornfield
Shawnee Mission
Parkville
Blue Valley (the whole thing - I have played the front 9)

The Pleasant Ridge Middle School course at 165th and Antioch (south Johnson County) is a nice 18 hole pitch and putt course, longer than Yates.  It has a mix of wooded and open holes (lots of long grass on the open holes) with a little bit of elevation change.  I have played it a couple of times.  It is pretty nice.

Where's the Blue Valley course in Kansas?

I know of a trailer court park off Kansas Ave. that has 3 or 4 holes?? been awhile since I've been there.
Its in the Bonner Springs area

Hmm..  what kind of baskets? We've lost four from WyCo in the last few years.  Dang trailer trash....

Speaking of trailer trash, anyone want to buy a mobile home?. It's on a lot in a nice park in Lansing right now. Hmm.. probably not the best way to market it I suppose. Ignore the trailer trash reference.....   ;D

Yet another course to add to the list.

There was a janitor or groundskeeper that worked there that put it in. I saw there was a building or business built on the South side where some of the holes played. I didn't see any of the baskets. They were not well made and falling apart from the kids abusing them.

Cool on the wooded holes, they had a little more room to work with than Yates did.
