As for the 6-pack, I would let them konw that this is an elementary school, and that alcohol is prohibitted, and that a quick call to the police is all it may take to remove the course. If they continue to follow with the 6-pack in tow, make the call. People should understand at an elementary school, its not proper to have alcohol. ONe would think that they have a brain....but......
SOrry that they map/layout is tough there. I know that from personal experience though you can still have a great time on a course creating your own 18 hole configuration. Based on the small footprint that Yates has it easy to see this as a problem, but as you stated you made it more fun than frustrating, which in all honesty is half the battle!
Since this is on school property, it tends to be thought of as the school's and doesn't have as much attention to it from our club as it may need.
THanks for pointing this out. I am hopeful that the people that made it less than desireable were also not put into a frustration point for you and the family to enjoy.
