No maps yet. Mr Houck has measured and mapped everything so eventually there will be some signs. For now use the follow the paths and search method. Or PM me and we'll see if I can meet you out there to guide.

Yeah the walk from 9 to 10 is a little different.

We should go out sometime, and I could try to GPS the pads and baskets...

Let me know when the radiation can do without you. I'm usually around. And I have discs for you to check out.

King Griplock and I played there yesterday. It definitely needs some next tee clues on a few transitions. 6 to 7 is tough because the sidewalk forks at the end of the path (take the right fork I think). 9 to 10 obviously. 12 to 13 for some reason is confusing because 13's tee is not in view and a path leads the opposite direction away (not sure if those were the right holes, the hole that's hard to locate is the one that is due right if you're facing the basket, the tee is fighting a losing battle with vines though I clipped a few away and the hole plays slightly uphill with almost 3 fairways). Very not intuitive is that one hole that you have to walk back down the fairway and play pretty much the opposite direction of the previous hole (15 to 16 I think? 15 being the one with the slightly elevated basket on the stone circle). 17 and 18 are extremely tough to find. I still don't know how to find 18 after 17, I just remembered where 18's basket was after seeing it when finishing hole 9.

But let me tell yah, I'm getting seriously good feelings about this course. It's just tees and traffic away from being a 4 easily and there may be potential for a 5 from me. I loved all the split fairways and hole 7 really tickled my fancy.

I've got little stickers meant to go on the basket poles that say "Next Tee" with an arrow...would those be helpful at all? Or does it need something bigger?

Let's not paint/sticker/mark the baskets unless Jeff Baldwin gives the OK -- he's running the show out there -- some temp arrows/ribbons/signs on trees and path clearing between hard to find holes will be done in the next couple weeks.

still a work in progress, give it time...

well if you go out there and there is a temp sign with an arrow on it pointing to where you should go you can call the police on me.

New013, thanks for the help. Just let us know when you are going and we'll make sure someone meets you out there to help, and make sure we get the signs in all the right spots. Any and all help is appreciated. I'll be around most of the time tomorrow. Tues is Mrs Sloppy's B'day so I may not have a lot of time to meet you out there. Wed-Fri let me know and I can try to get Jeff or Noah to meet you since they are both local. I'd send disc_combobulated to help you, but that might set you back a few hours. And he'll just lock his keys in the car or something anyway.

Yes, it is a work in progress, but it isn't too far away from being nice and playable. The walk behind trimmer is supposed to be put there soon, and our little crew is going to try and clean up the last few big projects(16 & 17), as well as some newly marked and small stuff.
