You had me thinking I'd been plagiarized! Too early in the coffee consumption for me to be sorting out stuff like that.

Might want to ask a mod to clean that up. The request of my quote is tacked on to the end, and it reads really strangely. Even for this thread.

Perhaps. I guess in the sense of being a "Mecca", I was thinking large scale. If by local you mean the local disc golf scene, I'd think the word of new management and revival would get around pretty quickly; around here it gets around well ahead of any actual work. If by local you mean the non-disc-golf business community and government, any tarnished reputation may be slower to heal. But I'd still suggest keeping the name, or perhaps slightly modifying it.

Yes it was the Grange the first few times I played there. The name change was its own twisted tale (but not as twisted as the HBH saga).

Not really all that twisted...receive letter from lawyer, change name, end of story.

Yeah, let's change the name of one of the most revered disc golf destinations in the world. That seems smart.

It's Highbridge Hills. HBH. Would you change the name of Coke or Pepsi?

Might have been better off leaving out Coke, some of the more seasoned members may recall that whole fiasco back in the day. Hey its NEW Coke!!! Not a fan, well here is Coke Classic!

Or maybe Coke is a good example, no matter what you try it will end up being called Coke again. Dont mess with success marketing people.

I was talking about this at lunch just last week. All of the kids looked bewilder at the fact there was a "new" coke. Good thing we didn't bring up Crystal Pepsi.

New Coke might as well have been Pepsi. It was overly sickeningly sweet. Coke also had that serious trouble about a decade ago that saw them take a huge hit to their brand.

Poor management is no reason to change a name, especially one that's been so prominent in the sport. The talk of new management will spread fast, and Jokinen will be a distant memory in no time.

Highbridge doesn’t need a new name.

It needs to be mowed regularly. It needs clean and reliably reservable accommodations. It needs to be cleaned up and it needs a bit of regular maintenance. It is a disc golf course destination. Take care of these things and it will succeed. Prioritize other things ahead of these things and it won’t go well.

When I hear talk about these things getting done and a commitment to these things getting done then I will get excited.

New name, Chief Security Officer, Pro Team. Great? Maybe? I’m more interested in the hearing about the basics getting taken care of.
