Par 56 1 & 14 are par 4's (if you play to the Hanging basket on #8, then 55 is par)

(Someone stole the Orange one...noticed on 7/8/12....thieves suck)

At any time, feel free to alter your own configuration by playing to the following:
1-Practice Basket Black
8-Hangar
11-Practice Basket Maroon (Short placement)
16-Practice Basket Orange (18-Left, uphill, close to original) This is for you UBER long throwers, and now with the reservoir trees all knocked down, try to clear the gates baby!
18-Practice Basket Orange (Up hill left) HATE THIEVES!!!  or Practice Basket Blue Super Long

You can make a fun alternate course without the need to work for it, just agree before you tee!

Thanks to Drew for the additional baskets out there to make this type of activity happen.

actually, i believe the orange pin on 16 is shorter than the white pin.  as the crow flies, really sure.  i measured the orange and white pins from the red pin last year before the wide open but i can't find where i wrote the orange one down.  orange possibly only on the wide open players' guide.

If I may be so bold...the fence w/o any trees is FUUUUGLY, especially the big ones.  Takes some doing to get a tree to survive, much more to get big.  Hopefully there's an awesome plan for the reservoir, cuz taking out ALL the trees damn sure didn't make the golfing better. :P
Wind??  What wind??

WTF.....really, those trees missing is a thing of beauty.  That is all concrete, and no place for trees.  The wrought iron fencing is a thing of beauty and the exposure of the fencing is about one of the coolest things to happen to the park since the disc golf course.

most of those "trees" were locust, and evasive plants that really harm the environment more than help it in terms of actual benefit to the ecosystem locally as well.

I think that you will find that you are in the minority on this idea that it was better to let them grow.

There have been ideas over the past 12 years for the reservoir, and I for one encourage more positive activity in the park, so anything that comes in should be viewed as a positive.  I will gladly re-design the course to live along side with other positive activities within the park.  In fact, I relish the chance to lose quite a few holes out there and come up with a new plan!

:-)

Don't take o-Fence   ::) on this, but this is something that has been needed very badly.  Drew did a lot of damage out there over the past few years, and his leaving made us feel that we had to continue to finish it.....but instead a local neighborhood action group took it upon themselves to move forward, and I feel it looks FREAKING FANTASTIC!

My main point is; as a disc golfer, (the main purpose of this forum) the tree removal doesn't improve the CD experience for me. 
If, in fact, they were/are locust, locust trees are a legume which means it is a nitrogen fixing species (pretty good for the soil), but certainly not good for the concrete and iron environment.
 As I stated, if there is a plan for the reservoir, that's good and I would support it, move some holes, whatever.  And my minority opinion is still that partially cut stumps sticking out here and there is FUUUUUGLY  ;D ;D

Get your elves to work on the honeysuckle; theres non-minority opinion.  And BTW, if they don't get rid of the stumps, those trees/shrubs are going to come back with a vengance.
