I split this into a new topic since we were getting off of the topic of league. Regarding the use of the forum, Old Pike is still trying to get our course in the ground, with tee pads, signs, etc. and really appreciate the convenience of posting on the board!
The back nine design, benches, bag holders, labor, etc. are largely the result of KCFDC members and I want to continue the positive relationship we have built with OPCC. The General Manager is very supportive and has told the OP board that KCFDC members are the people we want to use the course. They know that typically, club members seek to improve the course and keep it clean vs. how the public treats many of the courses in city parks.
The course is already a lot of fun to play; but, there is still much more work to be done. Currently, all funds collected in the donation box and the $1 per player for league goes 100% to course improvements. Once the course is in, we hope to establish some recurring tournaments, host a charity event, and could provide a venue for KCFDC tournaments, club championships, picnics, etc. But, we hope we don't get lumped in the "other category" just because we are under development and not located in a city park.
