We should get a group together to do an official "Course of Kansas City". We can even nonchalantly mark tee areas and pin settings. Maybe just have it where they're marked for a couple weeks out of the summer each year.

At the corner of rainbow and Shawnee mission parkway. The park was just mowed and the temp holes are awesome. Check them out.

I am going to play the brush creek holes if anyone would like to join me. It starts at the Nelson, and travels around the creek. This is a lot of water shots but they are fun. Let me know if you want to go.

Stupid work. That place always looks so fun to play and so well mowed!

This was probably in 1996 or 1997 when Chris Markey (KCFDC #249) organized an urban disc golf tournament. Each of the entrants designed a hole in public areas. A basket was  transported from hole to hole, and there was money exchanged at the end. I did not play but I remember that Crazy John, LaRon Harris, and Jeff Woods did. The only hole I can remember enough to describe was in the median on Ward Parkway as it curves down the hill before it flattens as it approaches the Plaza. An interesting sidebar about Chris Markey was that he was robbed at gunpoint at Rosedale, which, to my knowledge, remains the only armed robbery on a KC disc golf course.

I was trolling through old posts and found this... did anyone ever get an actual map of these holes???

I have a basket now and would love to play some of these casually, or if we want to get a challenge going, let's do it!
