Middle School on 167th & Antioch 18 hole Junior Course
« on: March 18, 2011, 01:50:42 PM »
Well I went out there today to check out the course with Joe Hesting and I'd have to say I like the course.  Its very easy but the guy who designed it and takes care of it is a landscaper and has made it really a pleasing place to play.  I will be back as it is 5 mins from my house.   

Anyway.  I got to meet the designer while he was working on the course today and he wanted me to let everyone know that they are welcome to play the course, even when school is in session.   He said it is open to players and that the parking lot by hole 1 is rarely used, even during school.   I felt like there was a comment made earlier when this course was brought up about not playing during school hours.  And because of that I personally have avoided this gem that was so very close.    Well I have been told by the man himself that it is open to the public.

I have played this course a number of times since it is just about a mile from my In-law's house.  I have enjoyed the course, it gives me a chance to really work on my approach shots.  I will say that it has been pretty windy each time I go out, but I too really like it. 

Dick, thanks for the info about playing during school hours...that will give me more time to play.

I should add though with this statement that it IS on School Property so don't be stupid.  This isn't a public park for people to trash.   Respect it because this guy, as you will notice by the care of the course, really enjoys what he does.   Make sure you leave this place better than you found it.

Here's a map I created. Not the greatest but it helps first timers.


This would make a great course to run a kids, beginner summer camp.
Van, Dick..... any interest in working on that idea? It's just a thought I haven't flushed it out at all....

I have a couple ideas that are very geared toward a family fun atmosphere I will be considering for this summer.   I will fill you in when I have more details.
