I played Willmore for the first time a couple of weeks ago and I love it. Today, I shot a 57 (a good score for me I think). If I could maintain this as an average, what group could I expect to play in for tournaments? A, B, C, etc.

Those are the results for The Gateway Open that was held in May 2014. The Pro, Masters, and Advanced divisions played Wilmore first, so take a look at the first two rounds for those specific divisions. All other divisions played Wilmore Sunday, so look at rounds 3 and 4 for those divisions. Also, I know the course has changed a bit, but I am not sure when those changes occured.

In a typcial PDGA tournament, usually the courses are set up a little longer than usual, additional OB can be added, and there is always that added pressure. From what I can see, if you can maintain an average of 57 out there, playing Advanced (MA1) seems appropriate, especially for a non PDGA sponsored event. If you have never played in a tournament before, playing Intermediate (MA2) may also be appropriate, especially for a PDGA sponsored event.

Showing up at a couple leagues and familiarizing yourself with the local players should also help gauge what division you should play. The individuals that run the area leagues do a TERRIFIC job and they are certainly always there to help! Check out the Events Reminder topic under the Tournaments and Events forum to find information about upcoming events and information about the area leagues.

Hope this helps out!

Hey everybody. A friend told me that park visitors have really left a landfills worth of trash all over Willmore over the holiday weekend. As much as it shouldn't have to be our job to clean up after them, please consider bringing a couple of plastic bags with you next time you play Willmore and see if we can get it cleaned up for it's debut in the St. Louis Open.

I hear it's especially bad all around the two shelters we'll be using to host the event (the one on the hill above tee 1 and the one by basket 4). If someone has some time to pick up around those, it would be massively appreciated and worth all kinds of karma points towards your next Ace.

Hello,

I am wondering about why the grass is so long at Willmore? Usually they are on top of it very promptly, but in recent weeks it has gotten unusually long. Yesterday (5/27) I tried to play but I had to quit after 3 holes because it was up to my knees and I nearly lost a disk in all the grass. It would be a shame to see it not be cut and drive people away.

Thanks.

I don't know for sure Peppy, but I'd like to assume that it's because of all the rain and standing water. They use some pretty big and heavy mower tractors out there and I've seen what happens when they try to mow while the ground is a little wet - they sink in and leave huge, muddy ruts.

Let's hope that's it.

I should probably mention this elsewhere but, since we're talking about grass NOT getting mowed, I figured I'd bring up the fact that they haven't been keeping up with mowing at Sioux Passage, either. Played there last Sat. , 5/23, & on the original course the grass was ridiculous on holes # 16, # 17, & # 18! On # 16, the basketball court hole, they aren't even cutting the fairway down the middle..... :evil: :?: :?:

The right people are aware of the situation at Sioux Passage park and assure us that it's a temporary hold-up that will be corrected in time for the St. Louis Open.

I've also heard that we can be assured that Willmore's grass will be cut in the days before the Open.
