New Course in Davenport

Postby Clue » Fri Oct 01, 2010 2:45 am

Glad to hear this is coming along still. My man crush on the QC grows with each new course. Now I just hope you don't get 92 inches of rain in the Mississippi Valley next year!

Any word on when the baskets are going in? Are they going to wait till the tee pads are poured?

Haven't heard anything lately. I think the issue now is the rising river level. It may very well be under water right now.

This Response is from Dag Grada....

It's not necessary to guess whether the course is underwater or not. The Corps have
a gage to determine river level for the Mississippi at Rock Island and the most
recent reading along with flow forecasts can be accessed online at
http://water.weather.gov/ahps2/hydrograph.php?wfo=dvn&gage=rcki2&view=1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1
.
2:00 PM reading today (Oct 5th) was 16.68' with a projected peak flow of ~17'
sometime tomorrow afternoon. The website linked above states that some part of
Credit Island begins to be affected ~16.5' but what this means more specifically
needs to be determined by the end user, namely disc golfers in this case. After some
observations to benchmark a level at which the course becomes difficult to play or
unplayable, one can know how soggy things are without making the drive. I've done
the same thing for my local course and now know that if the Kishwaukee gets above
~7.8', the river takes a short cut down the #8 fairway and puts the whole park
underwater.

Wanted to give a shout out to Sprague for going out to Credit Island this afternoon with Sam in tow to paint lines for tee pads.

Contractor is supposed to be going in tomorrow to begin work on getting the pads in.

Thanks, Chris!

Any update on this?

I know the pads were poured about a week ago, i was hoping they would put the baskets in soon so we could get a chance to play this before the weather gets really bad

I was told this morning that the place that is doing the powder coating on the baskets is apparently backed up, and hasn't gotten to them yet.

When the sleeves were installed, the Eagle Scout candidate that was putting them in was only given 36 (there are supposed to be 54). The Parks Manager is thinking that the remaining 18 were shipped to the powder coat company with the baskets. Once those are located they'll be put in.

Aside from that, they're looking to design and install an informational kiosk near hole one. Any carpenter types out there that would be willing to donate some time to that, if the materials were supplied?

Not sure if he does carpentry exactly, but Jerry Miller I believe is in that line of work. I'll have to ask him on Sunday.

Jerry Miller is a blacksmith and is the guy who donated a 18" Stihl Pro and 20" Husqvarna (chainsaws) and a cub cadet metal blade weed whip to C2...
