What's curious to me is when we played Trey Ranch last month (right down the road from Selah), Selah Ranch and its associated LLCs were listed as involved parties on the waiver. I'd assumed they'd invested into Trey Ranch to help get it going and share a stake in it. Now I'm wondering if that was a way for them to stay involved in disc golf in the area in anticipation of selling Selah. Or something to that effect.

Totally hypothesizing here.

Ha, weird. I'd say it's more likely they got the waiver from Selah and neglected to change the text!

My brother had suggested this. Only reason I disagree is because there's a lot of text in there pertaining to Trey Ranch specifically. Definitely a possibility it's just an error, though.

Most likely the waivers were from Texas Teams and/or Am World Dubs which were the first times the Trey courses were open…no need to write up a new waiver as they prob have all their bases covered in the old ones.

The good news is the Newsome family owns all the land Trey Deuce and Texas Twist are on…and most(?) of it has been in their family since the 1800's or something crazy like that. So I can't see them leaving anytime soon.

Here's hoping Selah's future owners allow the courses to stay.

Ahh, that makes sense.

I'd had that thought too, that at least Trey Ranch is in development. Don't think it'll quite reach the height of Selah, but they're some damn fine courses. Texas Twist is going to be amazing once it's fully groomed and regularly maintained.

E-mail conversation with Rebecca the General Manager:

Me: I saw the "For Sale" listing for Selah. Are the disc golf courses still open as the sales process moves forward?

Rebecca: Yes they are! Just still need reservations to play.

Me: Reservations? I've only played when staying as a guest, but I thought the public could show up and play any time. Is that not true?

Rebecca: The public can play. $20 per day per person. $40 for a cart per day (will sit two) BUT...we do have to have disc golf reservations.
I called ahead and made a reservation. Think they just like to know when you're coming and how many.

I guess I'd assumed they would be. On the one hand, why would they put all that effort in if the courses will have knee high grass for a good portion of the year? On the other hand, the pragmatics are indeed daunting. That's a lot of grass to mow.

This real estate listing mentions the disc golf courses prominently, saying they have the number 1 and 2 top rated courses (that was true a few months back). So at least they mentioned it here.

Appreciate the heads up on the sale, that prompted me to get off my butt and get out there, and it finally convinced the Mrs that it needed to happen ASAP. We are now booked in the Drake cottage next weekend
