Default McAllister Park in Lacey, WA

I understand the local club is trying to get an 18 hole course put in in McAllister. Last I heard the first goal was to at least get the city to allow it, then raise money for the hardware. I am also aware there was a tourney there with temp baskets.

Anyone know more info or where I can go to find out?

Don't know if you do FB, but here's a link to the FB page where I've seen info on McAllister in the past. I think you have the gist of what the situation is right now down there. They have set it up temporarily for a couple of tourneys and Team golf. Maybe post your question on that page to get more current info.

The other facebook page NW DiscGolfers is the regional page (multi-state). It should work too. "SPS DiscGolfers" is one of the local club's fb pages.

The next PDGA tourney at McAllister Park is Jun 22 & 23, 2019; South Sound Classic. You can register for it at: 4discgolf.com

Currently the City of Lacey parks dept. is holding public meetings on if a permanent 18 fairway course should be installed there. The local HOA is dead against. A lot of the things they say are invalid. But they may eventually find something valid or the parks dept may cave under all the negativity. The club officers feel that everything is under control. So... am keeping my fingers cross and speaking at the public hearings.

I had a look at a flyer from a coworker who lives around there. Kind of one of these situations where a bunch of privileged people who live nearby want to keep it undeveloped for themselves so they can keep jogging and taking their dogs and Chuck-its out in peace. If I lived there and was not a disc golfer, would I want the city to allow a course to be put in? Heck no, so I do understand where they're coming from.

On the other hand, hopefully the city makes the right decision and at the very least allows the club to do its thing in putting in the hardware.

When is the next councilmeeting?

Does the club seem to think this will go thru? It would be awesome to have an 18-hole course in Olympia! When will we know? Id like to play the tourny there in June

There's already an 18 hole course in Olympia, at Evergreen College, and it's a good one, too. It's listed here as 9 holes but there is a full 18 there now. Alot of progress being made there to get it up to a 4-4.5 disc level.

As far as McAllister, I guess it remains to be seen what they will finally decide. Parks Depts. are aware of the usual NIMBYism that always appears, so that may not play much into the decision. The club down there is doing what they can to get it approved.

How can we help? Does the club know anyone with any connections who can help push this through?

Ill have to check out Evergreen. I get that we want as many courses as possible but is it worth fighting if theres already an 18 course?

You could help by attending the meeting on June 5th. The bigger the DG presence the better it will be. The club does have connections and believe me, they are doing what they can to get it officially approved. Yes, it is worth it as Olympia has a big enough population base to support more than one 18 hole course, and McAllister is over on the east side (actually, Lacey), opposite the west side Evergreen course.
