Roscoe Ewing Disc Golf Course

a friend of mine just played it. he said it's only 15 holes now. holes #7-9 are gone. the railroad company had issue with people crossing the tracks.

very sad.

the hope right now is that the 3 baskets can be relocated so that the course remains 18 holes.

That really does suck!!! The only spot is between #15 and #16 in the woods, maybe a short wooded hole. Kills me that they complained about people on the tracks, I mean you have developments right ontop of these tracks yet its the disc golfers! Hello .....course has been there since 1975 and I dont believe there has been any deaths on those tracks.

technically it is against the law. but so are many other things that people do daily but those types of laws are not enforced.

it's one of those strange things in life where the law absolutely has to be there for very important reasons but that law ethically isn't enforced unless it's for a very good reason.

compare traffic laws such as; rolling stops, turn signal lane change, 4mph over

in this instance, i heard they (the railroad co.) has been attempting to enforce this for a long time. i'm curious as to what/who impacted the change.

I just played it about three weeks ago. It was the second round of disc golf I'd ever played. I instruct (golf) a few people that live in Medina.

I thought those three holes were all fun. Probably pretty easy holes for a good disc golfer, but sad that they're closed. I hope they can be re-opened or re-located.

All they had to do is put a fence around the tracks and make people use the underpass

And 7 isn't even on the other side

here's an update from dgscene

Quote:
Team Jenkins yesterday at 9:26am

I sent this to the paper:
My husband and I have been the course pros at the disc golf course at Roscoe Ewing Park since 1991. Baskets 8 and 9 were installed by Guillford Rd. in 1993 to increase public awareness of this fun sport.
It saddens me to have these baskets removed.
We have hosted many professional tournaments at this course and it has nurtured six World Champions.
This course is utilized all year long. Roscoe Ewing disc golf course was ranked #3 for one of the best courses in Ohio making it a destination for out of state players.
It's unfortunate the railroad has made this "illegal crossing" into such a big issue. Roscoe Ewing Park is the oldest disc golf course in Ohio making this park a historical landmark.. We will miss this unique design.
Sharon Jenkins, 3 Time Woman's Master Disc Golf World Champion
later it was posted that the bridge between 9 & 10 was also removed.
