I wouldn't say there's really been anything done too different. Two weeks ago we made holes 1,2 and 3 longer (and better)... there are a couple of new lights in a few places... I here that an effort is underway to light enough of the cave to work on turning it into an 18 hole, but there are no certainties at the moment.

No official format has developed yet, mostly just recreational but there is a league forming there right now - I think it's doubles and I know they are charging $10 (hopefully $5 of which covers to your entry fee). Look for Joe McKee when you get there to ask about the league.

Yes, we are slowly developing the underground! For march 2nd, we will do a $20 a team doubles. 1/2 of that is entry fee, the other 1/2 goes to a pro payout and am prises. The rest will go to developing the underground.

After this Friday, the course will be a modified 9 holes, we are working on a layout to bring you back to the beer and port a potty. Please no smoking in the cave. We will try to have trash cans out, thanks for trying to use them (the white ones were better than the ground).

WE HAVE 18 HOLES IN THE UNDERGROUND! It is a developing area, so lighting is getting better, but not perfect. I will see all you doubles folks around 7pm. Rolling starts until we all get on the field. $20 a team, no outside beer, they have beer for $2 a can, $3 for shots and mixed drinks. ABSOLUTLY NO SMOKING IN THE CAVE!

Hit a Cave Ace last night...no clue which hole # (I'm not even sure which course it was now that I think about it). Blind pin, lefty hyzer, heard it hit nice and solid...fun times.

Quick Cave update for those who haven't been down in awhile:
* 2 18 hole courses on site (North & South)
* $5 to play one of the courses as much as you'd like
* LED's and rental frisbees available @ check-in
* Navigation and lighting better than my last visit, but not quite 'perfect' yet (maps available, but still very easy, at least for me & my crew, to get turned around or confused as to which of several visible/possible pins you may be supposed to shoot for)

Stop down sometime and play the Cave... there's still nothing quite like it in the DG-universe, and it's right in our (extended) backyard!

Yup, 36 baskets. I went a a couple Friday's ago and there was a beer cart! You can also play on Saturday nights 7 to I think 11. The only catch is that it is 21 and up and $10 to play. $5 of the 10 goes to a cover charge for whatever band is playing that night. I think beer is also $3 on Saturday nights. The crystal city underground website has all the information about the bands that are playing on Saturday nights.

Peace
