Thread drift....and more a course drift....
Tom, this is essentially what I am working towards at Blue Valley, but slightly different. I want to incorporate the land at BV to encapsulate 2 additional courses, and maintain the large course that is in place. They would have different color baskets, as you mention, and then alternate pads for the courses as well.
It would be 3 courses and a larger footprint than what is currently used on the "Big Course" and the executive course as well. That area on the Executive course would be part of one of the other courses that I am working on.
This was approved by the city P&R, and received financing for it in 2010, but the water park that is by the entrance to the park wasn't funded properly, so they asked to use those funds for that. Being a proponent of more amenities, and better use of the parks, I didn't have an issue with it, and have again requested the financing for this project this year, and should find out about the results in January on it's approval.
It will make a fun and challenging courses (albeit shorter) for the park, and also allow us to possibly host the Blue Valley Open, 3 rounds, three different courses over the course of a weekend.
