Boys Ranch Park in Bedford

A coworker called this to my attention today:

http://www.bedfordtx.gov/bondelection/

I don't recall seeing anything about this in this thread, so I apologize if has been mentioned elsewhere. Basically, it looks like they've got a plan for a nine-hole course at Boys Ranch Park as part of a greater redesign. The Boys Ranch Master Plan link shows a rough course layout (lower left around the lake). Looks like it could be a decent little course.

I guess if you live in Bedford, get out the vote tomorrow!

It look pretty crazy for a 9 holer. Six of the holes giving you the pond as a water hazard. And it's off to the side, not through the middle of the park.

Yeah, I would hope this isn't a final configuration. I wouldn't care much for throwing around a pavilion like that on #8. #6 looks like a good way to irritate some homeowners. Plus a walking trail all over that layout. Overall, though, doesn't look too bad...most of the holes look around 300-320ft or so (google maps tool), and some trees plus the ever-present water hazard could make for a decent course. I would hate to be a primarily LHBH/RHFH player there, though.

The horseshoe is still there and hopefully will stay there. I get some good luck every time I pass it.

Consequently, we had a new metal Z constructed and put up in the parking lot. Maybe this will keep people from jacking with it. But here you go.

Looks like the bond election in Bedford passed, so I guess that means things are a go.
