Awesome!! I'm glad someone's out there. I wish I lived closer so I could help more often.
I had quite a few ideas for this course from the first time I played it....
-Pick up flood debris all around the course(branches, logs, trash, etc)
-Put some type of markers in the ground at the tees and find definite tee areas(11's tee was pushed forward a lil' bit and I like that change) So when we get our permanent tee pads we'll already have the "for sure"
tees marked. I've seen ten's tee box at two or three different spots, I like it from the concrete but it was originally off to the right a lil' bit in the grass.
-Trim the bushes/weeds around 12's pad and clear a better path from 12 to 13.
-Level tee area on 13
-14's whole fairway could use a facelift. That and 17, I believe, are the worst. Trim bushes located along the right side of the fairway at the edge of the tree line. Clear area around the basket a little. It's very dense with trees in there. If you end up on the left side of the basket("hill" placement), good luck gettin' an open putt at it. That hole is hard enough without the tuff putt at the end of the monster fairway that's sloped towards a lake, IMO.
-17, I love this hole, one of my favorites on the course. There is currently no gap going through the trees off the tee. Pretty much forces a hyzer route. This hole would be so much better if you could actually get through somewhere in the middle, too many trees on both sides of the drainage ditch. I like the original idea of using the concreted ditch area as out of bounds, just not in the hole's current state. If we could make a gap in the trees in that area and call the ditch out of bounds, it would add a lot. Then you could still go hyzer or try and get through the gap and over the OB. That would be beautiful.
-Clear stumps on all tees
-Possibly have the Parks Department cut horizontal lines going through 10 and 18's fairway, making it easier to locate errant shots. If they cut 4 strips at different points down the fairway, you could say, "It went in at the first line or after the third line" etc. That would help tremendously and speed play dramatically for those who don't throw so good that day. I've personally spent several hours, in total, in that tall grass looking for discs that I eventually found. If there had been a visual aid, it wouldn't have taken so long. It slows down tournament play too much, especially when two or more people go in there at the same time.
Other than that, get concrete tees eventually with tee signs. And some type of information board(there's already one over by 16-17, that probably doesn't get used anymore. We should get the Parks approval to remove and relocate that to the beginning of the course. We could have tournament/club info and a course map posted there. Also a scorecard and box for this course would be awesome!
Good job welldaman
