Default Franklin Park Purcellville, VA

I spoke with the park manager last week while out at the course and he said that they will begin installing tee boxes this week. They will be installing 2'x3' concrete tee pads.

He also mentioned the course has been very well received from the public and from within county staff as well.

I'm glad you posted. I didn't know that course existed. Looks pretty decent and worth a little road trip from Alexandria.

i don't think there is space for a second course- most of the undeveloped area is "natural area" at this point.

john, i was just wishing. i really enjoy that park and any reason to be out there is a great thing.

I agree with both the previous questions about the 2'x3' precast concrete pad size. Perhaps I misheard him, but I am pretty certain that is what the park manager stated last week. I know space was an issue.

Hopefully, this week will be nice and they can start install and we can get an on the ground confirmation.

it does say 4'x8' is smallest for rec course.

am i crazy to say 2x3' teepads would be a waste of money? If that size is the confirmed design somebody's gotta halt the operation!

I'd have to agree. 2x3 might be great if we were gnomes. Otherwise, it seems kind of pointless. Still looking forward to getting out there, though.

4x10 was recommended by the course designer (ahem) as the absolute minimum...
