Quote from: "tkienzle"
Me and my buddys where wanting to know what all the mounds of dirt are for on 10 and at the tee pad of 7?


so when you spike your disc on it's side it'll roll down the hill, causing you to swear.

the mounds around 7's t-pad will be the long placement for hole 6.

I got to play the course for the first time Saturday and had to play it again Sunday morning.  Its a great addition to the courses we already have in Kansas City.  I want to thank the people that helped make it happen and are still making it happen.   I'm an intermediate player (right now) and this course is just what I need to improve my game. Hope to talk more about this at the club meeting on Wednesday.

I think you should leave the course as long and hard as possible...It seems this is a course where your drive placement is a big part of your score...To me that is the future of discgolf.. Having to place your drive accuratly for a good up shot to make a par is far more challenging then going for a birdie on everything..  

Just my opinion though..

from the poll, it appears that is the concensus.  I have not had a chance to play it yet with the pads in the ground.  I hope to get out there over the next few days, if not next week with extra time to see how it truly plays.  I am not sure if hole #10 is in the ground or not yet, but will look into it.  I agree as a rag arm I still think that it makes more sense to play this type of golf, but others may not like it, to each their own, but to add this to the list of courses within KC is surely only going to create "TALK" about the disc golf scene within KC.

Kreiger and Co were busy today...Jim, Dan, Mark and James Arnold, and me were out there moving dirt around the pads, with help from whoever that guy is on the Cat tracker, along with the graciously rental-paid-for Bobcat.  We got 9 pads done pretty well, there will need to be more done after the next couple of rains start washing away and settling, but the pads are COOL!

Thanks to the bros Villareal and whoever else was out doing the concrete work (Will??) and, as always, Jim K and Dan.

TJ was a pretty active guy especially at Swope about 10-15 years ago.  Nice guy, worked hard.  He was always supportive of the sport, not so much the politics of it.

The course is far from placement golf. It is more how far can you throw? But hey what do I know. The "future" is here and guess what? It's still not a course people like to play.

What? How isn't it placement golf? Only holes like 7 or 2 come to mind where it's "just avoid the left and right shool" and throw real far. Most every other hole requires you to land your disc in a trusted spot. Yeah there are elements of "just see how far you can throw" but, isn't that every course? For folks that can't throw 400' or even 300' it becomes more of placement golf.

People don't like it because it's hard. They are also probably lazy or not "good" golfers so they don't give it any time. I'm fully convinced that if you get 'good' at BV then you can rip any other KC course to shreds.

I can't tell if you're joking, Not sure if I'm baiting the Troll here.

Plenty of people love Blue Valley...just not the average casual player throwing Destroyers for 250 foot shots.

The course just wears people out, I see A LOT of people quit after #12. Bringing an extra bottle of water and a snack is a good idea.
Most of the work that goes on at BV right now is to flesh out the shorter placements on the course. By the end of the summer every hole will have a long and a short placement, all new maps, new flags, and a few more benches.
I like BIG putts.
