    I still got consistant updates from players like Doug Borton, Jack Mace, Dale Bare, David McMahon & Kathy & Randy Mattingly as to how things were progressing. I am VERY glad to hear that it is still being used as much as it is, despite the wind and stickers. Those conditions never bothered me or kept me &/or Doug from going out and playing a round or two almost every single day, we were diehard golfers man. lol. I started the league there (Salt-City DG Club) along with Jack Mace and Randy Mattingly back when we still had the course on Buffalo Hill. It was still only 9 holes at that point. Anyways, I'm not sure who you are, but it sounds like you are a keen, diligent, ambassador to the sport and you are keeping it alive and well there in Hutch, & all over the area as far as that goes. I truely appreciate your efforts man. Hopefully, I'll be talking to you soon & maybe we can play a round next time I make it down to Hutch.
    Later man,
    Justin

    I had them throw down some railroad ties for tee-markers too. It was basic and simple, but it worked just fine. We had the course there for over two years before I started hearing about the city's plans to put in a water park on Buffalo Hill. I went before the city councel in 1999 with over 200 signatures from people that backed up my idea to keep the course on Buffalo Hill & build the water park somewhere else, but to no avail. They did however, here me out and ended up awarding our club/parks dept. approx. $8,500 for irrigation, land development, new trees, tee pads, signage, + 9 additional baskets. The only catch was that it was being moved BACK to the corner of the loop/pond. We made it work though and with the city behind us, we were finally able to create an 18 hole course for that area. Unfortunately, I ended up moving away to Kansas City at the very end of 1999, so I was not able to stick around and see the vision become a reality.

    Hey Scarpfish,
    My name is Justin Hanson and I helped design and get the current course (Hutchinson, Carey Park) approved back in 1999 & installed in 2000. 9 baskets actually existed in that same area (pond/corner loop) LONG before 2000 (1995 or before). It was, unmarked, short, stickery, and EXTREEEEMLY boring before I went to the parks & recreation department and convinced them to move the original 9 baskets over to Buffalo Hill in 1996. I called up Harvey Barger from Wichita & asked him to come down and help me design the course on the hill, which he did. Shortly after Harvey put his final thoughts into the layout, I went out and helped park personnel dig the holes and set the baskets. It took about a week or so of ass-busting work, but it was SO worth it when it was done.
