P&R's been busy
« on: February 09, 2006, 06:32:02 PM »
There's been some cuttin' and clearin', and a bit of burnin', goin' on at WYCO.
Trees on 13, 3, 4, and 17 among others, the area to the north of 9 tee, along 17 fairway where the big pile of crap used to be, is pretty much cleared out and was smoldering when I left today.  Also a fire to the south of 3 pins, just east of 4 tee.  It's looking good!

KanUWyco will be fun...

Yes, yes!  I saw this yesterday too. The mess in #17 fairway is now gone! I'm considering a short pin placement in the woods there now. Also, the tress off the pad on #4 that had the jungle growing around them are now just trees. They also trimmed a lot of the shaggier looking trees around the course. Looking good....

:?: Are the 'improvements' making the golf easier in a bad way by removing some challenges? :?:

There are two schools of thought on this. On the one hand it will make a couple of the holes a little easier. On the other hand it will clean up some nasty underbrush, poison ivy and piles of rotting logs and limbs that were unsafe to land in. It's a give and take but I think in the long run it will make for better golfing all the way around. The main thing is that they left all of the trees in the areas they are cleaning up and just took the nasty growth beneath, unlike what they did to the pond a few years back, which really did change the hole for the worse.

I just got off the phone with the new guy at Wyandotte County Park, John Bower. He is the one directing the cleanup effort going on and he is Disc Golf Friendly!

He says they have some new equipment for mowing and intends to keep the park manicured at all times from now on with a seven to ten day mowing cycle (depending on weather as always). He is mindful of the obstacles we like to have in place having come from another parks department with a disc golf course. What they are doing right now is going to benefit the course in the long run for sure.

 Work day February 25th and possbly the 26th as well. Depends up the weather a little bit. Whichever proves to be the best day is when the bulk of the work will get done. More info to come including a list of proposed tasks to be completed in a formal workday post here and on Topica.
