6 tee pads left to be constructed.  They were the more difficult ones on slopes, in woods, tree stumps in way etc. lots of mowing now with all the rain so they are spread thin with other responsibilities.   

Sometime this summer it should be open.

Are tee signs and benches part of the initial rollout?

Thanks John! Keep on ROC'n !!

tee signs yes.  benches i am not sure, but we have talked about it.  they have some old metal bencheds dumped there onsite.  they only need  new wood seats added.  they still have concrete slab attached.  i believe i counted around 6 which would be a welcome addition.

Thanks for the hard work John.  This should be really nice when done.  Tee signs are going to be crucial.  Even though I walked it last year, I forgot what was where and got all turned around.  It looks different than it did last summer.

I went out this past Saturday and tagged along with a group of random kids that said that they heard the course was supposed to open June 1st. It was fun even though we couldn't find our way around very well.

Head's up to anyone that does venture out there.... Poison Ivy is everywhere it could possibly be.  Along every path and pad in the woods and in and around all the treelines.  Basically everywhere that's not in the full sun.  I think I saw the biggest patch of shrub type growth around  what will be 18 that I've ever seen.  Almost hip high there and creeping around every path in the woods.   I've got to assume that control measures will be put in place, no?

I saw two yellow baskets, but mostly blue.  Are the blue going to be the course baskets and yellow warm-ups?

Hope John doesn't mind that I chime in here.  The yellow baskets are actually the "gold" placements.  Normal holes will play to blue pins, but for those that want to stretch the course out a bit, the gold basket may be used.  There will be 8 gold baskets total on the course, and one of them will be used for two separate holes.  This makes for 9 total holes that will have a "gold" placements available.  If I remember correctly, the holes with "gold" placements are as follows:  3, 5, 6, 8 (same as #3), 10, 12, 16 & 18.  My favorite hole with the gold placement will be hole #5.  It's a crush turnover shot followed by another 300+ feet to the basket from the landing area - AWESOME.  Can't wait for this course to be done.  And if I know John, the poison ivy will be taken care of in due time.  The course isn't complete and manicured yet, just needs some time and TLC.

Aha, that helps.

It was tough to figure out when I was out there.

Earlier in the post, I believe, John said 6 pads left to be put in.  Any idea which pads/pins are in place now?  If I knew that, it's be possible to hop/skip around and play the holes that are in place.  No need to worry about there not being a pad poured if there's a basket to throw to.

Muchas Gracias.

Not open yet.  They have two workers assigned to finish the last few things, but those two workers were pulled off the course.  Folks have to be patient.  Disc golf is high on all of our priorities, but often times the park departments have several projects going on, get pulled to help with the city workers, mowing etc and disc golf gets pushed back.  Courses that require work are usually worth the wait and they are getting close if the 2 workers do not get pulled  in the next couple weeks.  Meaning..... course may not have all amenities in place, but baskets and pads are likely to be installed soon.

They are working really hard and  if you are out there playing some of the holes and see Tom and Nick from the Liberty P&R  working, let em know how much you appreciate their hard work.

i was out today doing some cutting and ran into the crew chief for the parks dept.  He is getting pulled after this week on the course to work on another project so it will likely be longer than the two weeks i posted earlier.
