Default New Course for Rush Township Pa.

There is a new course scheduled to be constructed in John M Ryan Memorial Park in Rush Township Pa. We are currently getting sponsorships for each hole. The park sits on 26.44 acres and all that is on this property currently is a tennis court, a bench, and a picnic table. We have room for 18 holes in the main park area and 3 alternate holes just across the one way road into the park. The township supervisor is excited about this project. The course will be Wooded and very hilly. We are working on installing 9 holes with 2 pads each to get the course up and running and then start installing the back nine holes and at least 3 alternate holes. Future additions to this park are in the works like walking trails, playground, sledding hill and a small pavilion. I will post more about future park cleanup dates and course work dates as we move ahead with each stage of development. anyone who would like to help or would like more information about this course can pm me here.

Thanks

thank goodness winter is finally over. we are currently designing hole layouts for the course we have the holes pretty much set will hope to have them finalized and assigned hole numbers by the middle of next week. this course will have some unique challenges as far as hole locations are concerned and maybe even as creatures are concerned since we saw bear tracks on the property tonight.

We have finally started doing fairway trimming and clearing areas for throwing lanes on the holes. We currently have about 14 fairways cleared with 4 more holes that will need some work on clearing all the brush. Basket placement is hopefully going to be next week on Friday August 30. Once the course is open there will still be some clearing going on to open up alternate throwing lanes and clear areas where we want to put a long tee from. Pics will be of hole 4 downhill run to the right tree at bottom in sun basket will be right of there. 5 up the path to the left black disc golf bag is in fairway about 40 feet from basket location to the left and behind large boulder. Hole 10 the line is right of the tree with the yellow pruners hanging on the left side of it. between the next to trees basket will be tucked in near drainage stream.

Default Basket install

Baskets are going to start being installed later this week. I have a couple more fairways to clear but course should be playable soon after basket install. the last holes to be installed will be holes 1,2,3. only because of the work he needs to do in order to get his equipment to place the baskets in. attached is the proposed course map of the area.

Just got word on Friday from the township supervisor that the bases for the baskets are being installed. the baskets should be installed next week sometime. Holes 1,2,3 might be a bit since they need to make a access point and install a gate to prevent off road vehicles from entering that section.

Default Baskets are in.

The Baskets are in. We are currently working on creating tee pads. tee signs after we finish locking in where the pads will be the next step. also a lot of tree cleanup is in process as well. there are a number of downed trees that need to be chainsawed. with the logs being used as seats for some of the tee pads.
