Da bear walk wants a sacrifice!

There's a couple tourneys coming up in the Yoop that I'm thinking of making the troll run for.

Thanks for this news.
Wish I saw this sooner. Time to scramble to find a sitter.

Edit: the tournament page says the permanent course is to be installed next year.

Not yet. We do have an angry little conservation district director who likes to run up on people with his hand on the .357 he carries on his hip. He hasn't shot anyone yet.

Thumbs up Garfield Park Grand Rapids redesigned

Garfield Park in grand rapids has completed a redesign of the old post course. They have reversed the flow. You now start where 18 ended and finish near where the first post was. They have installed baskets as well. The baskets are discatchers. They made great use of the trees putting some baskets behind clumps of trees. A couple tight narrow fairways through the trees. The branches and leaves make you think about whether to go around the trees or keep it low and straight. Layout can be tricky at first but after a few holes they start to line up better. 12's tee is on the other side of the maintenance shed. 15's basket is way across the ball field. We didnt realize this till we were putting at 16's basket after throwing from 15's tee. Holes are reachable. Little shorter on the front nine a little longer on the back. No distances are posted as of yet. Tee posts from old course are in place. Most have hole layout in marker on them. I don't throw very far but still was able to manage a 1 under par round. Longer throwers will probably fair better if they can navigate all the tree shots.

Good to hear! I'll have to get out there soon. If there's no map or pictures updated on the DGCR page by then, I'll try to get some things around as well.
