Question Tyler State Park Redesigned?

So is this course being split into an East and West course officially?

http://www.dgcoursereview.com/course.php?id=29

I'm thinking retiring the existing 27 hole page now is probably a good idea. Any locals know what's up?

I don't think the details are absolutely final yet. They were asking for input on course names, basket colors, etc. just a few days ago. I agree the old layout should be retired once the changes are final. That'll drop them right out of top course contention...I warned them :-)

the debate is to make it a 36 hole behemoth or split it in 2.....no rush to pull it Off dgcr yet as its still in flux and no new permt holes have been set

in fact its just 30 holes with 3 raw holes with portable baskets in the tester stage so its not really close to being 36 holes at all

Here's what I found last Monday...
I'm not a Tyler local but played it this past Monday.

E1 is new and easy to find
E2 is the old (short) 17, hard to find from E1 but I knew the old layout
E3 - E7 old 3-7
E8 new but marked well
E9 -E17 is the same but one number off, old 8-16
E18 old 18

W1 old 1
W2 old 2
W3 old 19
W4 old 20
W5 old 21
W6 old 22 (tee still says 22) basket says 6
W7 never found it, called boulder hole
W8 old 23
W9 old 24
W10- W15 don't have baskets
W16 old 25
W17 old 26
W18 old 27

It should be noted that this project is not close to fruition and the 2 courses have not even been named nor have they decided to split it in 2 nor have the 9 holes actually been built lol

Actually, temporary signs are up and the baskets have been remembered by covering the old numbers. Just played yesterday, at least the East course.
I put a pic of the new layout up in the links/files section. So far all existing wooden sings, tee numbers,etc are still there.

That map is why I was asking... so I guess it'll just be super confusing until someone figures out what's going on. Got it

Either way about the course on the 'phantom' hole up the hill (tunnel shot out to the open and doglegs right then downhill), I lost a KC Roc in the thicket on the right. Think I played this after number 18 (up hill that ends near the restrooms). I'm not worried about getting it back. Just curious to how long it takes someone to find it.

You could still play the play the old layout. It seems the new lAyout is trying to not only growing the course but reduces some of the crisscrossing.

The current layout includes temp holes used in the Yetter A-tier. The East/West designation was also primarily for the benefit of the tournament. Any of the temp holes may get pulled out at any time as the club and the park work to figure out how and where the new holes will be permanently placed.
