I wish I could be more specific, but all we can do at the moment is ask for patience and promise to keep the community informed as much as possible.
I have worked with way to many people that like to tell everyone what they are going to do....
and not get things done.

I have learned that I would rather people get things done and talk about what they did.

I think I read MM say he would rather under promise and over deliver.

I am okay with that and actually prefer it.

Default Cool Story

Cool story. Met with the owner, made a down payment, and bought Highbridge Hills Disc Golf Megaplex, on Sunday. Had an 8 hour round trip, with light to medium snow falling. The entire day felt just like my trip to Detroit 8yrs ago, the day that I bought my first disc golf course...Mountain Man's Playground, Ironwood MI. Both of these days were surreal days.

This is my vision for 2019.

Our primary focus will always be on the disc golf, and the disc golf courses. Getting a course open is a priority. Getting more open is a second priority, and having all courses open is third priority. To be clear, there are currently 6 courses here. Blueberry, Gold, Granite, The Bear, Woodland Greens, and Chestnut. I've always clung to a Chuck K. comment about Tiki Course's, so perhaps we'll try one on for size.

Second priority will be the courses. We will be putting back everything to the original Chuck Kennedy designs. The lines will be brushed out and opened up. Chuck has mentioned digging up his alt position notebooks, and really hooking us up.

We'll be having several Tournaments this year, first one will be last weekend of April. If you are interested in running an event here, please let us know.

Our third priority is getting set up for camping. We are working with Ashland County Officials on this matter.

I will figure out a system for communication and reservations, etc.

Not to be pedantic, but there's usually a distinction between made a down payment (contracted to buy) and owning.

But that said, I'll bet Sunday was an extremely giddy day. Heck, I remember the day we contracted to buy land that would eventually become a disc golf course, and the day we left the closing, drove to the property, and walked on land that was ours---both were thrilling. And that was just for 62 acres of vacant land.

Great to hear. When you say, met with the owner, what owner are you talking about? Aren’t there multiple owners? Doesn’t John own some of the property? Are you going to be the owner of all of HH?

I was wondering this same thing. The ownership situation sounded complicated.

There are probably still lots of important details to be hashed out, more than you tell us, but a meeting and a down payment are great signs. That’s some real, measurable progress.

Hope the camping works out. Will there be other streams of revenue? Music festivals had been discussed? Will the course be pay to play? It’s just so hard not to be skeptical given HBH’s past.

Questions aside, Good work mm! Get that course up and running again!

I would highly recommend dumping Chestnut if it means having all the music festival things in that area and away from the actual courses.

please never do green baskets, this shouldn't even be a color option from manufacturers. We have courses in woods, why do we camouflage baskets? the point is that they should stand out.

Yeah, or just turn Chestnut into a 9-hole or your tiki course. It's separated enough from the main grounds that it should keep courses from being trampled and baskets from being destroyed in the event that these concerts are what we've seen in the past.
