Course Records
« on: April 09, 2013, 08:03:56 AM »
I feel like we should have some sort of repository for area course records. Maybe an official thread, or something else you Forum Moderators could dream up that I don't even know to suggest. I was thinking only 'official' records too; those that are set in league rounds or tournament rounds.

Birdland - Jake Bowen 51
Old Pike - Ken 'Tank' Franks 40
       dubs Ken 'Tank' Franks and Kevin Vetch 37
Cliff Drive - Matt Orum 45
Water Works - Todd Henry 39
Blue Valley (Big) - Avery Jenkins 53
                  (Little) - Will Schusterick 44
Swope - dubs Todd Henry and Otto Spiers 36
PHill - Dean Uhlman and Andy Lewis 40
Wyco - Dave Hemmeline 45
Blackthorn - Joe Hesting 47
Prairie Center - Dave Hemmeline 40
Shawnee Mission Park - Kevin Tulp 44
Jesse James - Cooper Arnold 46

the tough thing we have with course records is that, like Swope, there are so many pin locations...

I thought about that but then thought it is just going to be easier in the long run to keep one record per course. It would be absurd to say "Swope record when 1 is long, rocks are OB and 13 isn't short..." etc...

That being said, there should/could be an alternate listing for something special like Swope Gold, though that changes from year to year too.

Could do dubs too but I would think it would be nice to know your partner.

I might have Jesse James with a 46 but won't list it till someone either confirm or denies that.

THe configuration of our courses in town prevents us from really having a true "best score ever" mentality.  Swope Gold is perfect case, as it will be vastly different this year than from last year.

We know about Todd hitting a 39 at league at WW when #8 was longest uphill.....Matty O with his 43 @ Cliff during Worlds, Avery and his 51 @ BV (though this year BV will be longer than it was in Worlds)...Rosie, I mean really there are so many low 40's and it is almost as bad as Swope with multiple pin placements.

It would be hard to say this is record on "this" configuration......

You're going to have to be a little more clear than that

Yeah, I mentioned that already. It is one of the unfortunately consequences of our course structure but doesn't mean we can't at least keep records for each tract of land.

Could someone chime in on this one...

I seem to remember that Hemme shot a 40 or something like that at PC.

It was a glow dubs deal back when PHill first went in and the course did not include north of the lake finger.  A bunch of people camped out for a tourney and we all played a glow round starting about 9:00 at night....we cashed $80 with that win.

Ya..it was something like that....you could probably search the PC league posts and find that....but it was also before the config change to 12-15
