They'll also want to drag the cut trees just far enough to get "off" the fairway - thus creating an even more impenetrable edge to the fairway than was there before. Don't let them do that.
Steve is right on with these observations. There is a disc golf design ailment that Steve has referred to that is sometimes called in the foot trail building world as "logs lining the way to grandmas house" It's generally discouraged there too.

And I don't know if this is an ok place to put it, but I've never been a big fan of "road holes" in course design.

There's something that just doesn't feel right. I had that feeling when I had a chance to play Pinto Lake on a travel trip not long after last years worlds. The layout there has quite a few holes where you are using a road as the fairway. There's just something about it that doesn't seem to jive with either my esthetic sensibilities or some subconscious apprehension over a vehicle coming... I don't know. It's silly but having a double track of tire wear down the middle of a fairway just seems like such a downer to me.

I say use some goats from the a schools AG program. Will take care of the crap in the way leaving the trees.

That's my plan for my personal course clean up.

You know hill college has definitely got an ag program with goats! Lol. You might be out of luck with Baylor, TSTC or mcc down there. Try asking Baylor kids about goats and you might get some funny looks.

I'll consult for $250 per day (a real 10 hour working day) plus mileage.

Denny, I layed out the course for free and I'm not even sure it's gonna be approved by the city council in October. And if it does get approved I may not bid on it or even win the bid if I do bid. I'm pretty sure it's gonna be put in but I wouldn't count my chickens before they hatch. If I do get it though I'll see if there is enough money in it to hit you up. Nothing like a second opinion.
