New Course in Hiawatha

Postby geoffreylaw » Mon Feb 12, 2007 12:59 pm

Does anybody know if their building a new course in Hiawatha? Somebody told me someone was either building a course or planning one. I wasn't sure if they knew what they were talking about.

It is called Fay Clark park. It is by the Sports Zone. You can see it from the interstate on the left just after the Boyson rd exit if you are northbound. Sixteen of the eighteen tee pads are in. We have to build hole 17's tee pad into a small hill and just found a spot for the 18th. Baskests need to be bought yet and the anchors will need to be welded. Hopefully will be mid summer.

I wouldn't go so far as to blame the Hiawatha parks and rec. There was just a lot of things to get done and they wanted to do them the right way. There wasn't a whole lot to work with out there so it was going to take time.
Actually the one to blame should be the lady reporter who got most of the story wrong when she put it in the paper.

I love reporters. I got beef with Beth Malicki at TV9. I hate that lady.

More the engineering firm, than the city. But the city probably signed off on it. I will work around it to bring joy and happiness to all disc golfers to our north.

I will contact the City of Hiawatha tomorrow in support of the disc golf course. I'm a resident.

It would be a good idea to get with the contractor who is doing the trail/park work and address the ditch area that will cross I believe your #3 fairway. The contractor usually knows what the city has planned.
1. Find out what they plan for erosion control of the drainage ditch.
2. Find out if and where they plan to install drinking fountains.
3. See if they have a plan for the big rock. A mudjacking bit can bore a hole in it if you wanted to stick a sleeve in it for a basket. Bitch'n is right, it might give the course an item of character. And while the contractor is there he could dig out a recess for the rock to fit in which would lower the basket to a climbable height.

Good luck.
