I wonder if anyone can name the course where these pictures were taken? Hint: Peoria area.


These photos look like Bartonville. Is that right? Just didn't see anyone else chime in.

Progress Report

Postby Sprague » Wed Nov 14, 2007 5:31 pm

Well the city has done an amazing job and 7 Teepads (1,9,10,18,13,14,15) are poured and ready!

Holes 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 9, 10, 13, 14, 15, 16, 18 have fairways that are complete or very near completion.

Holes 4, 5, 12, 17 are at the halfway point

Holes 8, 11 have not been started

Saturday is going to be another big push - we need lots of hands to pile brush for the city (small piles - spaced the length of the fairway)

Any time during the week feel free to go out and make piles, or cut painted trees if you know the fairways. ribbon takes precedence over paint.

We also need chainsaws to finish the fairways that need "dropped" so the city can haul the brush and pour teepads.

Call me if you can help or have resources (309) 798-8667

Big thanks to Ron Ras and Brad Ellis workhorses - Paul and Mr. Bill are doing a great job spearheading the work days and droppin trees! And the 10 or more others who have shown up on the workdays! It's going to take a big push and we'll see a new course soon!!

Saturday is official

We are going to have another workday this Saturday the 17th Starting at 8-9ish. I truely believe that if we can get a group of 15-20 workers out this time that we could get the majority of the clearing done.

Now is when I issue a challenge to the disc golfers of the QC area. If this course is ready for baskets by the end of the year (December 31st) I will personally buy a keg of Fat Tire out of my own pocket and host a party for everyone that has helped with the course.

Hope to see everyone there this week, are you up for the challenge???

Wow, I absolutely can't wait to see ya'll progress on this next week when I'm in town. Way to go everybody. I've been thinking about this course since 2000----back when Dave Panel thought dg was going to be a fad. My, how times have changed.

Wow, that's a lot of work finished in a short amount of time. Great job, everyone! I'm curious as to how many holes from the original design were kept. If I can ever pull myself away from the courses we've been working on here, I'd like to come out and lend a hand.

Several of the original holes were preserved. Although Sprague has done a MAJOR overhaul on the overall design.

He's practically been living out there for the last couple of months.

Come on down, Jack. We've got a saw with your name on it.

I'd like to get out there in December. There's a lot of work that needs to be done on the new Joliet course before I can think about traveling. I don't remember much of the original design, but I'm sure the new one is great.

it is Jon, Sprague and I went over it when he was in DSM a few weeks ago. It's going to be sick.

thanks jay!

Last night Ron Ras and I took down the trees in fairway #8 it's now open. Only cleaning to be done and about 15 small trees need removed still.

The city has put the old drainage pipe in the creek and covered it in rock.

Saturday I would like to see hole #11 opened.
#17 opened from the A pin to the C pin.
#5 opened from the Tee to the A pin.
#4 finished
#2 has about 15 trees left.
#8 has about 15 trees left.
#7 needs a little work to get it opened.

There is more here to do than what a few club workhorses can manage!
So if you plan to enjoy the park in the future, pretend like these work days are country club dues!!!!! WE NEED HANDS
(without discs in them)
and afterwards we can throw the newly opened fairways to feel out the distances - make sure they are playing right before the tees get dropped in.

Every set of hands is appreciated!!!

Thanks to Ron, Alex, Paul, Mr. Bill, Brad Ellis, Big Dave, Mike the Axe, Sparky, John Resche, Tyler and his friend, RJ McDaniel, the Village of Milan, Dave Pannel (who thinks the coures is looking "COOL") and Kathy Betcher for letting me spend all of my unemployed time on the course. (anybody hiring) :?

Let's get it done! :D

Hey Chris,

THANK YOU! I'm not sure everyone can appreciate how much time and energy you've actually spent on this project, but I can say that without it, we would have a long, looong way to go.

All of your appeals for help above are great, but none quite as appealing as this one:

Now that's motivation!
