Nice work on the course. I know you said you still have a lot to do, but the layout is great.

I'll be out there this Saturday, Jeff. Aaron's games are at 11:00 and 3:00, so I'll probably have some time from 12:30-2:30 to visit the course. Let me know if you're free.

Steve:

Any chance you could take some pic's of the course while you are there? I have heard great things about this course and would love to see some shots of it.

Thanks,
JT

Steve, I'll have to see what time my daughter's volleyball game is Saturday morning. I'll try to negotiate for some more time away from the fam. I'll send you an e-mail with my cell # so you can call me when you get ready to head over to the course.

I've taken a bunch of photos, but haven't asked our IT guru to post any pics yet. That could be my next project.

Kevin, Kelly, and Corey moved the baskets into the B positions yesterday. It a whole new course again!

YES IT IS. Stibs said its a couple strokes easier, but I am calling BS on that right now :lol: . Ive never been to an NC course, but the front 9 has to be pretty close to anything NC has to offer as far as tightness of the holes.

The picture files are huge though. I don't feel right sending them from my work e-mail because it would be a huge .zip file. I just sent one set to a sponsor thanking them for their donation and it was 6 MB for 5 pics.

If the weather forecast plays out like it's supposed to, I'm probably not going to play tomorrow.

I think the couse plays a few strokes easier. I've been playing the B's a bit by myself this week (shorter tees), and find there are more birdie oppertunities from these pin positions.

I have played all 4 layouts about 6 times each, I would have to disagree.

Although two of the hardest holes on the course are taken out of the red to A layout (6 and 13), the red to B layout adds more difficult holes (1, 8, 10, 18 ) while making the deuces harder, which makes it a tougher layout.

Mentally I would agree that the red to A layout is harder than the red to B layout, but score wise the red to B is harder than the red to A.

If you were going to tell be the blue to B was easier I would have laughed at you. :lol:

What a course! I played it for the 1st time yesterday with Clay and Aaron. I threw almost all the discs in my bag and the course was very fair but very challenging. I played blind with Clay and Aaron's help and shot a 51 from the blue pads to the B pin position. Clay was thinking that was a hot round. 5 dueces and 2 4's. Did not shoot as well from the red pads but it was like playing 2 entire different courses on the same exact land. I don't think I have seen a course like this. Congrats and great work to all the people who were involved!

I lied. Jeff and I played it this afternoon in the cold and rain. I can't wait to play it when it's warm and dry. If that course gets on a regular mowing schedule, it's going to be hot. Heck, even with the long fairway grass, it looks pretty good.

Pics

Postby prodiscgolf » Wed Oct 25, 2006 8:44 am

I gave our IT guy Luke a flash drive with pics on it from the Peninsula course. As his time permits, he will find a way to display the photos. They are typically just tee shot photos so most won't do the holes justice. I included the pdf of the tee signs so hopefully he can link to that also so you all can get a better picture of the holes. They'll be posted off our website http://iowadiscgolf.org.

If I said that, I'd have to laugh at myself. For the record anyway, I got totally toasted this weekend from the reds to B's. My best score is still red to A (57).

I'd say a 51 is a pretty hot round out there!
