One of 3 potential new holes we've discovered this weekend, which far exceeds are ability to construct them. Sigh.
We better get some pictures when building commences. (This winter possibly?)

Sad to say Louisville's Coyote Trace will be closing. Bittersweet for me, as I loved the course, but Eric called me up right after he decided to pull it for good to see if I was interested in 18 DisCatchers. We came to an agreement and the baskets will be relocated to Hidden Ridge in the next couple weeks.

We'll be setting the ones where we already have a location pretty well determined this fall/winter, and will be storing the rest until their time comes.

the new hole 10 Ive designed...will also be used for alternate 9, holes 9/10 switch over and play differently. So the map below is now outdated :-D


First map is out, rough, but gives you an idea...

Nothing like pictures of fabulous holes on a course that, most of the time, is further from me than the International Space Station.

Obsolete course maps are an inherent risk in private courses. Especially ones with portable baskets.

Good luck getting a plane ticket to the ISS!

Better to produce a map that is 90% correct then none at all...most of my baskets will be portable forever, unless i concrete them onto the granite.

Very odd reply

Sharing here what we discussed elsewhere.....this is the our life at Stoney Hill. Our baskets are portables, and every year it seems we change a hole or create a new one. So our maps and scorecards are constantly obsolete. We've got a tournament in 7 weeks, and I can't prepare the paperwork yet because we've just moved one basket, are working on a new hole, and have two others planned if we can get to them in time.

It's the price of trying the perfect the execution of the dream.

Picked up the baskets yesterday. Huge thanks to eparr of Coyote Trace for thinking of me first when he decided to close up shop and for throwing in a ton of extras. OB posts, tee signs, a couple retrievers, some really nice carpet remnants, and all kinds of other useful items for someone trying to build a course.

One step closer.

Dang.... that's a beautiful sight to see. IC.... you've got some huge shoes to fill up there! Glad that Eric was able to keep those baskets in Kentucky.

Well, the baskets are all pretty much just sitting in my garage in pieces still.

I've been focusing a lot of my time and efforts into the house I'm getting ready to break ground on. Septic site evaluation, permitting, still tweaking some design features, obtaining bids and pricing for framers, geothermal HVAC, plumbers, electricians. Also regraded and added gravel to half the driveway that was still in rough shape from this past spring (after trimming all the low hanging trees of course), etc. etc. etc.

Hey, at least the grass has been growing really slow. We have put a little time into the "campground" hole that I posted some pics of in post 1024.(see attached.) Opened it up a little more, cleared some more from the fairway, and started working on the portion up top after the hard left dogleg.

We're getting a bit of rain at the moment, so I may be able to drive some of eparr's homebrew sleeves this week. (pretty slick design, I'll have to post some pictures of them some time.) It's been so dry that it's been damn near impossible. I'd like to set a handful of baskets so we can play some glow golf this fall.

We're getting pretty stoked for the fall, can't wait for the leaves to fall and be able to see stuff again.
