Swope League 06/06/2011

Last night was a great night for some Swope Gold disc golf.  It was about 92 degrees, but the humidity was low and there was a slight breeze coming out of the South, helping to cool things off as we played.  We had 17 out to play the Gold configuration, making for about a 2 1/2 hour round.  I kept the cards as small as possible, so it did not take very long to play.  With 16 getting into the Ace Fund, it is now up to $254.  

I really appreciate Chris T. for taking the time to explain the setup to the group, as well as working to make the course ready for this weekend.  It is really looking nice; thanks to all those who continue to work hard on the prep.

Open 1:
     Arturo V. - 53 - $19.00
     CD S. - 57 - $11.00
     Jake B. - 59
     Lee K. - 60
     Jack L. - 65
     Dick P. - DNF
Open 2:
     Ryan K. - 61 - $14.00
     Jeff C. - 63 - $9.00
     Bret L. - 65 - $5.00
     Ted K. - 65 - $5.00
     Tony D. - 69
     Rodney B. - 70
     Amanda J. - 72
     Bill S. - 73
     Caleb W. - 77
     Van S. - 84
     Scott T. - 85

Love #16 in this set up.  It was a fun hole.

We will need to have as many people as possible at Swope on Sdunay to protect the picnic area from being used.  I am sure that we will be in full force out there, but those of you that get there early enough to watch the first few groups, it is gonna be a great event out here on sunday.

Jack, can we get that street blocked off?  Otherwise, we'll have people parking on the road, interfering with the shot for #15 to the peninsula.

Fixed

Your card recorded you as having a 73, and did not tell me that you had not finished.

It's cool.  CD and Arturo were trying to be nice.  I actually got a 13 on 18 and they would only give me a 9.  So my score also would have needed a 2 stoke penalty.

It was because I sat at the basket and purposefully took it.  Sorry to make you think it was a real score.  I was a little frustrated.

So all the OB is reasonable?  A 13 had me thinking they may have laid it out too tight.  I was considering checking it all out anyway.  Maybe after my round at BV on Saturday.  No AM pools are playing Swope, right?

That is correct.

Side note....not able to get out there today, as Interviews are in the works for me today.  And that's not a bad thing at all!!!  ;D

The OB wasn't in play on #18 last night.  And the OB is of similar shape as last year's #18, which is plenty generous.  Jack moved a couple flags last night to make some bigger greens, but for the most part, it played well.

I'd talk with Dan to see if we can get smoething from the P&R on that one, need barriers there and then need someone to man the area, as some people to park will be allowed with passes in the lot by #16 for VIP/Staff, and late teeing pro's.  Why we need to have a parking attendant down there for the day.

just shot a 54 on gold. the park was full of workers & looked amazing! loved the new pins. only thing I woulda changed is #5's tee. move it 10 ft closer to the shade, its 500 ft so 10 ft wouldn't kill it. also found #16 to be confusing. can't emphasize on how well the park & course looked, great job guys!

#16, OB on the right all the way to the Temp Flags for alternate pad #17 Leo.  Just walk forward from the long #15 pin to the corner.  Was it the tee, the throwing, from, etc that had you confused?

Leo, did you play the standard tee, or the tee directly to the north of #15's pin?

I played the original tee, thats probally why the ob didn't make sense to me, it looked like a runway for and aircraft carrier, flags everywhere  :D

I also played the rock pond on #4 & all rocks ob, was that correct? And mandos on 1 & 10? How about 14?
