I just think it's an uneventful boring hole, in that placement. The other two are way more fun to play.

LMAO, are you joking?

I guess you just step up and duece that "uneventful boring placement" everytime then huh. In my opinion (and probably most other's too) the left postion is the easiest duece in the park.

I guess throwing OB everytime would be uneventful after a while....

I didn't say it was easy, I said it was boring. It's just not very much fun, to me. I have more fun and look forward to playing the other placements.

I guess my honest opinion is not that it's a bad or boring hole, I just think that I would've left that area as a practicea area, ala Camden's. Since no other places for a hole couldn't be found, that hole exists. :lol: I think the walk from 17 to 18 is retarded--if that hole had to be there, it should've been hole 1. There's flow issues, as usual, with a JC design. (see longview)

The city REQUIRED 1 thru 9 to be a loop for rec players. The city required lots of things for the course to even happen at all; and they wouldn't let us do some things or holes we wanted to do. Middle isn't exactly the way any of us want it, but it is in the ground and it's fun to play.

Would the walk from 17 to 18 be better if it was 18 to 1?

Yes there are some flow problems, but I'll always take a few walks if it means better hole quality overall.

They should have REQUIRED a freaking bridge or two! This is my *only* real complaint with the course.


18 to the right is an ok placement. To the left it's a no brainer, just bury your disc in the trees, hit the 10 ft. putt. Straight is the toughest for a RHBH thrower.

All anyone asks for is balance. It's easy to make a course challenging for a RHBH thrower, since most are. However, you forget about the lefty who gets to throw hyzers all day. Not saying this is the case, but when setting this course up for the rumble, you need to keep balance in mind.

Harold Duvall needs to get this talk.

I know what you're saying abou the bridge Tanner but here's the facts we've had accept.

The city won't drop the $10K (the cost we've heard) to install a bridge to connect 10's main fairway to 10's long pin/11's tee. Why so much? That area of the creek floods quite often. About 3 weeks ago it was 6 inches or less from overtaking 10's long green completely. The current gets so strong in that creek I've seen it carrying a 30 inch T.V. downstream.

From the city's point of view there is already a bridge there, the 23rd St. bridge, which adds a 100 yard walk.

Tanner, hopefully the water is down in May, like it usually is, so you can see that it's actually crossable under normal conditions. Springtime thaws, and after heavy rains, maybe not so much, but I've seen it when it's at it's normal low stage. There's a cool little rock crossing.

Yeah, I've crossed it there. Put my whole foot in the water, no thanks. I'll use the 23rd st. bridge. I don't need to get a bad attitude going at that point of the course, I hadn't even got to the woods yet!
