    There is going to be a modified setup for the tourney, but I have no idea what that means because as long as the regular golf course is open the holes on the golf course are not allowed to be open. I would assume they may include some holes from the regular course as part of that tourney but I really do not know.

    brown deer is closed

    check out this site . . . it is the local club and although it isnt 100% accurate nor updated super frequently it will have info about the courses as they close I suppose

    Yeah we'll see about thursday, looks like the weather is supposed to be rather crappy, but i've been known to play in some real nasty stuff. I'll take your word for it about the 9 at dretzka not being worth the drive, although i noticed there is a tourney on the 28th(saturday) on the winter 24 so i would assume it will be all set by then. either way, i'm free thursday morning and hope to play somewhere, even if it has to be valley view, abendschein, or franklin. most likely i'll be up in franklin by tomorrow night. any idea if brown deer is still in? that course is way over my head while i'm learning new grips but i may go this weekend anyways.

    I had heard that the weather was supposed to be crappy on thursday, but until i bother looking for a more detailed forecast i think i'm going to try to get out to dretzka thursday morning, even if its only 9 holes. Itll have to be early because the family stuff starts around noon. I could use a change of scenery, plus i haven't tossed a disc in over a week so i'm itching to throw. I'm almost crossing my fingers for a layoff, but it doesnt look like the company is going to let me sit idle. I was hoping to have some good free discing days before the snow comes. Anyways, are these 9 winter holes fairly self explanatory or is there something i should know? never played the winter holes.

    Both my wife and I went to the U of MN for horticulture, I garduated in 99 and she graduated in 98. We both spent about 10 years working on golf courses before moving intot he landscape portion of the industry. My wife was doing designs for about 4 years before I joined the company, when I joined we switched from design to maintenance and small projects. We are looking to continue to grow and diversify, so hopefully I can prove my value to the disc golf community in terms of my horticultural knowledge and maybe I can help design/install courses. I think I have something to offer to the process for sure. I look forward to working with Terry because he is such a great guy and I think he is great for the sport.

    Our company is called Beautiful Blooms and we focus almost 100% on lawn/landscape maintenance. We do mostly biweekly visits for landscape maintenance and weekly lawn mowing services. We offer fertilizing/weed control, aeration, mulch, SCU and FCU, pest. applications, weeding, shrub trimming, pruning etc etc etc. We do small projects and typically range from $500-$5000. We do not have large equipment like bobcat and such so we focus on rpping out the old and redesigning and planting, but any hardscapes and grading work we leave to others. We just havent had the equipment to do that sort of thing but xpect to eventually.

    the 27 holes at Dretzka apparently did get pulled today so the course is only the 9 holes above the golf course. Not sure if you have been there for the winter course or not, but if you have any questions about it I can walk you through the course. 15 holes go in on the ball golf course and wil not be opened until the ball golf course closes.

    Right now, I work for Breezy Hill Nursery, at their farm in Clinton, which is near Beloit. I am the wholesale yard foreman, and all around nursery gringo. It's not really a good fit for me, i'm more of a detail and quality oriented person than a quantity and speed person. Before that, worked for Rich's foxwillow pines and before that Garden of Eder Nursery. Did 2 years worth of a Plant biology degree at U of MN before boring lab work and family issues brought me back to WI, and i got an associates degree in Landscape Horticulture emphasizing Maintenance/Arboriculture from MATC. I'm actually planning on attending UWM in the spring, which will bring me back to milwaukee, to find a new job. And yes, I have been known to walk around the nursery with a felco in each hand, but somehow i managed to lose my lefty felco and its holster. nowadays i prefer a felco in the right and a silky zubat in the left. What's the name of your company?

    Well, nevermind, just saw your conversation with Gordon about the improvement/additions at Parkside.

    Gonna have to get down there the next time I'm in the state.

    Hey, is the Parkside "Orchid" course different from the old "Parkside" course.

    If so that would mean there are 2 courses there, one 18 holes and one 21 holes right?
