Storm Damage

Postby Budhyzer 17696 » Thu Jun 25, 2009 9:16 am

Took the words out of my mouth.
Since we do not plan work days too far in advance, notification to others is next to impossible.
So, what could be better than playing disc and pick up sticks at the same time. :wink:
There are a lot of downed branches that need thrown off to the side of the fairway "as deep as you can get them".
Please try to chuck them in as far as you can. You never know if your next shot will be on the edge of the fairway and underneath branches that were not thrown far enough off. :x

A big thank you to anyone that helps out with this.

I think I'm taking the day off. If you we're going up to play, we still need a lot of sticks and small stuff picked up that can be done as people play. The course is playable on all 21 holes. The 11 thru 13 area say's closed on the map but they have been cleaned up enough to throw as long as you stay on the fairways.


I lied and went up and did a couple hours work. Cleaned up on the left side of 11 and right of the A pin on 13. I think the branch piles are going to have to burn. I'll see about permission. It's either that or do a fund raiser to rent a BIG chipper machine. One weekend would make a lot of mulch on those 3 holes.

Whats left to get things back in shape:
General small debris cleanup on most all holes.

The Front: Chainsaw work on 5, 6, between holes A and B on the trail and 7. Nothing there to prevent playing, but still needs done. There is a limb on #8 near the B pin also.

The Back: 11, 12 and 13 need lots more chainsaw work and debris removal or burning. 14 also needs the broken leaner dropped and cut up. There's really nothing we can do about the ones broken or folded over high up until they are on the ground. I would like to get to where we can walk without climbing over trunks on 13. I'll be able to spend a few hours next week, but won't have much free time for over 2 weeks after that.

Same here as I will be leaving for Colorado shortly.
Maybe I can take a day or two of vacation when you are off for some chainsaw work after I return.

Everything on the front is cut up but the tree on #5 between the pads. The limb on #8 turned out to be a tree. Bring your camera next time Sprague. I took care of the 2 trees on #8 you talked about!

Worked on the trees on top of #12 yesterday. It's going to be fun throwing through or over them to the long pin. The B pin should be usable in a couple weeks.

Keep up the good work Steve; maybe you'll be done by the time I get back from Colorado :wink: :lol:

By the way, I'm about to venture out to the Frisco Recreation Area for what I hope are 18 holes of beautiful lake views and pine filled fairways :D
9,000' of elevation should put me at about the 400' drive length :oops: :lol:

We have a 5:00 tee time on the local ball golf course as well.

I got a chance to go and play for 8 days in April. Amazing golf. If you get the opportunity I strongly suggest Phantom Falls in Pine, Colorado and Sukuna Pines in Hot Springs area. Also BeaverRanch close to Pine Colorado. The first two are private but I got all the contact information if you are interested.

Are you carrying an oxygen tank? :D

I got a chance to play Diamond X in Billings MT a couple weeks ago, it's nowhere near 9000' but I could tell the air was thinner! Unfortunately the main effect was more time needed to catch my breath instead of distance on my drives...

I suspect hole 8 could become one of the most majestic holes in Iowa!

Great Job guys!

Well, the Frisco course was OK; the land cover is nothing like Iowa, that's for sure. Pretty much dirt, natural mulch and not as many pines as I was hoping for. Some of the holes lacked a fairway but for the most part was easy to follow. I played with a local shooting two down to his even :D
I won't have any time to hit up any other courses unfortunatlely; family obligations are numerous.

The ball golf experience was awesome!
Since our 7,700 square foot rental house sits next to the 12th green and have been watching a lot of groups come through, I couldn't wait to get out there.
The course is named Keystone Ranch and was designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. For those in the know, he kicks ass in design and this course is nothing short of spectacular.

Greens fee - $80.00
Beer cart rounds - $15.00
Colorado ball golf - priceless

I finally got around to digging out some photos from the Frisco Recreational course in Colorado. Great scenery but to much "dead stuff" for my liking. I think there was a beetle infestation which killed a lot of pines.

Wildcat got hit by 90 mph wind this morning. Crager said 18 is wiped out so I imagine the rest looks bad. Hopefully no baskets got destroyed. I don't advise anyone go there but if you do let me know what you find. I won't be able to get there until Friday.
