Another new course?
« on: April 04, 2013, 07:50:46 AM »
I heard on KCTV 5 this morning that 197 acres of land was going to be designated as a park. I think they said it was going to be called North Valley Park (northern KC). The details included a disc golf course. Anybody know anything about this?

I think that is Hidden Valley Park near Parvin and I-435 by Worlds of Fun.  I seem to remember folks setting up and playing temporary holes there on the weekends a few years back.

I sure hope so, that is just a couple minutes from my house.  :)

I think the only times the course was set up was for Homie rounds but everyone was welcome to play while set up.
The most memorable rounds were Homie rounds. No matter where we played. At the halfway point, Buckle would have his grill ready. I think we used to shuffle baskets because we only had so many Mach 3 portables.
I highly recommend Buckle's input on this one on where tee and placements should be.

This is a done deal.  It is nowhere near the course that "homies" will remember.  It is starting out as a 9 hole course with multiple pins on each hole.  Everything will be relatively short on this course.  As things develop the goal is to move to another 9 hole course across the street to make it 18.  It will initially look pretty barren but we will be plating trees to help with the "open feeling" that many of you will expect.  This is essentially a beginner friendly course.  With the amusement parks across the way, the notion of another "monster" course really didn't fit the bill of what they are trying to do.  This park will have a disc golf course, it isn't going to be a disc golf course with a park in it.....  We broke ground on it today, but I designed the course about a year ago.

The goal is to have it in and tee pads by the 4th of July.
