There has been some vandalism at Unger recently. Someone pried the locks and stole a tag (560) and disc that was on display in the kiosk. All of the flyers, new maps and other promotional materials are gone as well. The basket on hole 2 has been worked loose from it's foundation and was relatively easy to pull out of the ground. I unlocked it and brought the basket home until I can re-anchor the sleeve. The water is down so I'll be going by to move what I can to higher ground. Baskets 11, 12, 13, and 14 will be relocated to 15, 16, 17, and 18. Baskets 5, 6, 7, and 10 will stay in place until we have a place to put them in the redesigned back nine.
It seems that a back nine that flows around the lake will be quicker to install than cutting a course through the woods beside the parking lot. Dave Mac will help redesign the back nine up from the lake onto higher ground. It will still get flooded out at times but will be playable sooner and for longer periods.
The course still needs a lot of work to make it more user friendly. Please let me know if you are willing to help me complete this course. I am also looking for a Course Captain and Co-Captain for Unger Park to spearhead the improvements and maintenance of the course. It is more than I can handle to be a Course Captain and President simultaneously.
The folks at Luby Equipment (whose property backs up to holes 2 and 4) are concerned about people walking onto their property and vandalizing their equipment. Please respect their property line and do not trespass. The River City Flyers are good neighbors and I do not want to jeopardize our relationship with Luby’s or the Parks Department. By the way, Luby’s has brought in rock to fill the ruts on hole 4 so the standing water is a non issue for us. Thank you, Luby Equipment.
