Default Findley State Park DGC, Wellington, OH - missing baskets/tee location

Findley State Park DGC, Wellington, OH

i played the new back 9 for the first time last weekend. thx to those that put all the hard work into it!

a few quick questions. could you please describe where the tee for hole #9 officially is? is it on the parking lot near the tee sign or maybe in the spot 30 feet ahead and 30 feet right of the sign where there is a worn spot on the ground?

also, the basket for hole #9 and hole #13 was either missing or my group and i just couldn't find it. any knews on those?

thx!

I've played through the back 9 a couple of times and it takes the tight wooded part of the short front 9 and carries that theme into much longer and therefore more difficult holes. Unfortunately, the last couple times I made it out there, it was later and it gets dark in those woods pretty early, its so thick. Hopefully more people get through it to tromp down some of the fairways a bit more.

I alway play 9 from the parking lot on the right side of the sign. Also. Have you played the "bonus hole" between 7 and 8 across the lot from hole 6 basket to hole 4 (I think) basket?

i haven't played the bonus hole from hole #7's basket to hole #5 because there are always cars in the parking lot when i'm there

hopefully one of the locals chime in about 9's official location and the missing baskets

Techno is about as local as you get there, isn't he?

bah, i'll rephrase

a league member or designer or someone that just happens to know where the tee would 'officially' be located.

this is for the means of me updating the course to show a correct photo and measurement.

also, the missing baskets? i heard from a squirrel that a tree fell on the basket for #9.

I saw a basket sitting back past the basket for 6 last time I was there. I think they get some bored locals out there that try to rip them out as the one for 6 was broken like someone used a truck to pull it the one day.

If I see the guys that did a lot of the work designing the back 9 again; I will ask him. I had his number as I was going to help clear some of the new fairways but I lost it.

Last time I was there (Labor Day?) 5's basket was broken and was propped up by some thick branches. I did really like the back 9.

Yep. That was the one broken. Not 6. Been busy with random things at work today to where I was havinga hard time picturing where I was at. Almost gave bral the location for 10s tee thinking back 9 started with 9 for some dumb reason.
