Default new course going in @ The Evergreen State College in Wa.

We are in the process of building a new course at Evergreen.

Our club SPSDGA has had 9 baskets at the college for a couple of years now.
a year ago they were in a different area to gauge interest in having course.
it was getting a little bit of play, and people were asking lots of questions, and that got us approval for 18 in this new wooded area.

We have 9 holes roughed in and are encouraging people to get out and play it.
(I have been doing doubles out there on Sun. Mornings)
Temp. dirt Tees, and portable baskets on cables.
Mostly just trying to keep the brush beat down, and see how some of the holes play.
Once we get the front 9 done, we will start on the back 9.

I will post some pics of the course later.

here are some pics of what I have made for the signs to the course from the parking lot, temp Tee signs, and the next Tee arrows etc.

^^^ I don't know why this site flips some pics when posted from my phone, but you get the idea.

Here is a pic of the map Mr Anderson made with a cool GPS app.
Come out and enjoy, just remember that it's still under construction.
We would also prefer to wait to list it as a course until it is a little closer to being finished.

Always glad to hear of new courses going in the ground. I'd been out of the loop for a while and while looking through my list of played courses, saw that Yauger is RIP. Not that Yauger was a stellar course by any means, but it always sucks to see courses pulled, especially in an area that doesn't have many options nearby. I'll definitely get out there and play at some point--is it similar to any other courses in the area?

we have been playing this course quite a bit, and making some slow but steady improvements.
it has been getting great reviews by the guys that have played it, and its seeing more traffic all the time.
we are back to hitting it pretty hard now that winter team golf is over.
there is a couple holes that still need a lot of work (mainly #3), and #9 has been a barley ok hole down a service road.
today i started making a new #6 (this hole is being added between the current #5 and #6) it will make it so i can renumber everything after it one number higher, allowing me to delete the current #9

Nice Matt....I'll have to get down there and give it a toss, along with Woodland Creek, which I also haven't played yet.

We have had few work parties @ Evergreen the last couple weeks, and I am proud to say we got some work done.

BIG THANKS to those that made it out, even if for only a short time, as every little bit helps.

#1 basket is now in a permanent spot (no more cable,etc.)
#3 got some more trees moved and the green got cleared more.
we created a new #6 and a nice big path over to its Tee. from #5
this made it so.......
#6 is now #7, and #7 is now #8, and of course, #8 is now #9
(old #9 is no longer in play)
#8 (new #8) Tee pad got pushed back some, to go with its new longer green
plus some other misc course construction stuff.

if you haven't played Evergreen yet, or its been a while since you been there, you need to check it out!!!

just remember: its still under construction, but its really coming along nicely
(plus the rough is getting a lot better, its already getting beat down a lot
