Thumbs up

I have been waiting and googling this course every few weeks, and it has been a total bummer because there is never any updates or news about it, however today was different.

There will be a public hearing for this course on August 26th. Check the San Mateo County Parks website for more info here is the link:

I can get psyched again. Spread the word people.

We've been waiting on the parks dept. Who thought we would have a course by july 4th. We haven't been posting much because we don't want the opposition to the SF courses to have any ammo against Mclaren, since this couse has nothing to do with the San Francisco parks dept. And Peter and I live in San Mateo County and not the city. We also want to keep the community meetings small and unimposing, so the local community doesn't feel overwhelmed. Things are moving forward. We don't need many disc golfers at our 1st upcoming meeting, but we will when we go before the county board.

We had our communty meeting last night. The neighbors were concerned, but seem to be open minded. We'll walk them through the course tomorrow at 10am. All are welcome to attend this design tour, but keep in mind that we are ambassadors for the sport and that the tour is primarily for the neighbors. Hope to see some of you!

The tour went well. It alleviated a lot of valid concerns (e.g. "will discs come into my property?"). Its always hard to tell from a map how something actually is in reality. Next steps will not occur until the fall. Sorry for the wait everyone...public process takes time. But it will be worth it!

not sure if many of you are following the news but last night there was a massive natural gas main break and the ensuing explosion and fire killed at least 6 people, destroyed over 50 homes, and seriously injured dozens more all in the city of San Bruno, less than a mile from Junipero Serra Park:

At some point soon, I'd like to have a fundraiser tournament at the park with 100% of the proceeds going towards the neighborhood and the people who were affected most.

Looking forward to the installation of the course in this area. Also offering my services if needed, I am a Certified Arborist who routinely writes tree protection plans for construction sites. I have all my own climbing gear and the know how to tackle tree issues if they do arise. Looking forward to a course here on the peninsula

cool remy! We look forward to your help and interest once (if) things get rolling at JSCP. I live in Redwood City by the way...and this course is not the only park we're interested in building.

The park system opened public comments for 45 days, which ended on Sept 30th. They will then let us know how to proceed. Bottom line from what I know is that we'll have to have a public meeting to get it approved by the county board of supervisors.
