Without Grandview in the mix, we couldn't even call it the "Des Moines Challenge", why? because it's the ONLY COURSE IN DES MOINES. A lot of hard work does go into planning and preparing for this event. And what's wrong with using an "oldy, but goody" course? Just my opinion, but I think Grandview is great! Who doesn't like Grandview? I have t-shirts and trophies (yes, from late 90"s) from when the ONLY COURSE used for this event was Grandview! Back when Becky was running it and loving it. I realize the tournament has grown and they have used tougher courses in recent years, but let's not hate on the most popular course in the metro. :roll:

I've always appreciated Grandview in the Challenge. It's a lot tougher in this tournament than any other day. It's also nice to be IN town for a round.

Is Ewing going to be shut down by May 25 th they are done North of McKinley and there's no signs of them starting anything more as of right now ! The State lost a lot of construction $$$ due to all those Government cuts. ( Just Saying & wondering )
I speak my mind cause I can ! And no one can do anything about it !

I am not the contact person on that subject, but I do know that we are trying to contact them and get confirmation before we set anything in stone.

we're not taking any chances. We don't know, so it's probably better to assume that we won't be able to use it. (Ewing)

Id imagine we will still be able to get in thru Indianola or Army Post for the meantime? A lot of people live out that way, so I would hope there would be an easy way to get out there...

The good news is Ewing can get a much needed make-over....possibly eliminating hours of mulching it currently needs.

I also looked at the construction as a good thing, for this reason. We could have a (slightly) newer Ewing. Using some old, some new holes. Next best thing to a new course...A newly redesigned badass course!
