Why is 13 never in the long?

Up until last fall, the anchor was missing - it got hit be one of the vehicles moving sand or mowing out there. We moved one of the practice pins out there so we could play it again. We need to remove some of those willows just in front of the pin so that there's a better landing area otherwise too many people will be in the river.

Please understand I don't prefer it be in the long. It just seems that someone worked hard to get that placement in, and it never gets used.

I have only played 2 rounds this year, one at Peninsula...or I would have lugged it out there :)

We do need to chop up some of that willow stuff. I had thought about just thinning it out big time, leaving a dozen or so of them, not like they don't spring back up in a season.

I will gladly move 13 basket, and baskets 6 and 10 as well, if I can borrow some keys. It would be great to have all 3 of those signature holes back. Even if they are not in perfect playing condition due to willows or downed trees, they are still SO much better than the shorts. Sugar and Turkey are nice shorter courses, why not let Pen fill a different niche.

This statement is inaccurate. It was in the long from the middle of October until the middle of January.

It was getting dark the other night when Jason and I moved ten of the baskets on the course so we skipped hole thirteen. It will be moved in the near future.
You can only be offended if you want to be.

Jim:
I might be able to borrow my neighbor's chainsaw.
What day or time is good for me to meet you out there and we can clear up the tree down on hole five in about 30 minutes and the tree on hole six in about an hour?

Greg:
Hole ten is already moved long. Hole six will not be moved until the tree is cleaned up from the fairway. It was getting dark the other night or Jason and I would have also moved hole thirteen. We will move it in the near future. We did move ten of the baskets on the course. You should get out there and play the current layout.

Thanks for moving them! I got out there with my son last night and we had a great time.

Done. I left the main trunk where it lies, but it is otherwise clear and ready for play. I will be happy to move the basket if anyone will lend me a key. The deadfall on hole 5 is also cut up but the stuff still needs to be dragged off.

Has anyone moved the 6 basket yet? I will be happy to do it, but I need a key.

Andy, I have been heading out there with Captain's chainsaw a couple of mornings last and this week. Is there anyway I could mark trees so yous guys could do some solo work? When I asked Jeff and the city about doing the things I want to do, they both added some chores for me =)
This 14" Craftsman isn't cutting it. Captain did mention something about carving up the tree on 6 into stools (like what we had before the flood) for each teepad. Any other trees/debris can be cut into 6' sections and I'll move them soon!
