It most def. wasn't meant as a review. More like a suggestion to wait to play until more work is completed. I was just trying to prevent others from going through the same frustration me & my buddy went thru trying to navigate & figure out the course, that's all.

No offense taken, homie. I guess I should've been a little more clear. Mainly meant that there isn't a lot of elevation to work with within the park. I do feel like they did a good job @ using the available elevation. Most notably the hole that throws over the small pond to an elevated tee. You are very correct abt there being plenty of "tricky stuff". IMO, too much of that tricky stuff is created by walls of trees & a lack of true lines to hit, in the current state of the course.

So the course has tees and baskets but no signs and needs a little more clearing? When is it going to be open? It sounds like soon. Do they need any help clearing brush or is the city taking care of that for the initial installation?

I went out there this morning. It's a nice piece of property and it looked to have some interesting holes. I wouldn't suggest trying to use that map I just posted. There have apparently been some significant changes to the layout. I think that trying to figure out which holes were which using the map was much more difficult than just letting the course flow. This will be even easier whenever they put the signs in.

So what does the course lack to be completed? Someone answered my post on the PDGA site and said the official opening is Dec. 23rd but is available for play now.

From what I could tell, all it's missing are tee signs which really would help with navigation. If there where a good map, it wouldn't matter as much but there I haven't seen an accurate one.

I expect that they'll probably start installing the signs (They've already got the posts in the ground) before it officially opens. I won't be in town on the 23rd, but I might drive over there between now and then and see if they've put the signs in yet.

Yeah, I'm thinking of taking a quick walk-through today or maybe even playing it tomorrow. I'll post what I see.

Played it a couple days ago.... there was an older guy out there who knew what the holes were so pretty much followed him the whole time. The first hole is long and open, and as of a couple days ago, there were big piles of dirt/mulch you have to throw over. Walk to the right after finishing hole 1 and you'll see the teebox for hole 2. After that, it flows nicely. Some holes are extremely brutal so hopefully some more trees get cleared out.

If anyone finds a white bottom stamp star destroyer (inked with "JTP") with a red firefighter maltese cross dye on it in water on the hole where you throw over water... please let me know. I got it for my buddy on his birthday and he threw it in there. Tried getting in the water but the water was too cold.


Playing it again tomorrow at 10:30am so will post an update if there is any.

I'm not sure you're allowed to play the course, post on this thread, and NOT give your impressions of the course.
