A lack of funding. Carmel is in a little bit of debt trouble at the moment.

One of us needs to win the lottery and dedicate at least $100,000 towards courses in central Indiana. I'm thinking Eagle Creek, Garfield Park, Southeastway Park, Hazel Landing, Anderson, and Graham Erwin Park!

Boom!

The money is there. I think it would really help is if disc golfers showed more interest in getting courses put in. Contacting the parks dept & town councils en mass would let them know that people are really interested in the sport. Also, talking to schools about getting more kids involved in the sport would generate more demand for courses.

I think with all the other activities they have at Eagle Creek adding a Disc Golf course would be a natural fit into the use plans and bring out a segment of the potential users that may not be aware of some of the other actvities out there including the "go ape" thing, win win for everyone!

Eagle Creek has the terrain and land needed to make not only a world class course, but a beginner friendly course in addition to that (2 courses). They just spent a fortune on the obstacle course in the woods with the climbing and ziplines and what not.

I believe the Zipline was added by another Co. that charges a fee and the park gets a percentage.

The Non-Profit that runs Eagle Creek, "Friends of Eagle Creek" Didnt even want mountain bike trails in there.

I really dont think a DG course will ever be installed.

As I wrote in my review of N.W. way Park. "it needs to be pulled & moved to Eagle Creek"...... sadly I really think it wont happen.

Minus the walking path I really like Northwestway... But then again the walking path gets in the way of 17 of 18 holes. It can be a challenging course with plenty of unique holes. I know there are walkers who ignore the course I just go with a planned 30 minutes of wait time. Gets me out of the house for longer.

Getting back on track. i would hope that Hazel Landing gets installed by next spring.
Hazel Landing, Dillon, & The Hill would make for a great 3 round high school tournament host site.

I'm sure it will be worth the wait.
