Oh man I can just see you guys terrified screaming down one of those big Hills with this out-of-control cart that won't steer and probably doesn't have brakes either. Split-second decision, do we jump out of the cart or do we crash into this tree?! Sounds like an awesome time! (since you survived of course!)

The question is does JJ own the honka house or was that part of what Tom bought?
JJ still owns that parcel (thus the need for redesigned holes) and a couple others (or at least is in cahoots with a couple of parcel owners). Thus all the junk around honka.

so JJ still owns the honka house? Not the pro shop though. Wouldn't that affect blueberry 2 or the parking lot? I was under the impression he owned land more on the west? I believe side of the hill that would affect BB and gold. It's been awhile since I've been up there though. Oh and those carts were sketchy at best.

John Junkinen is a neat freak though, no?

Yes, it does, and has affected Blueberry. Not the lot, or hole 2 though. 3's tee is on his plot, so the new tee is a tad shorter and closer to treeline. Other plots forced other changes on BB as well, but I don't remember it all, and I am sure it will change more.

The best was on one hole on BB where there's a sign by the pad that says "Only use the front half of the tee box - it's the property line). Lol.

Gold also has a few land related changes.

But the rest were basically unaffected.

Never said I needed one, but the lure of carts helps convince other friends to drive the 5.5 hours up there... I've actually played Gold and Granite back to back in the pouring rain, without a cart.

I would still like to know if carts are in future plans though.

The lure of magnificent disc golf courses will have to be enough. No carts are in the future.

I took it in the spirit of: Don't let a lack of carts keep you away, it's worth going anyway.
