well If you go out there bring a shovel you're going to need it to get the carp off of the fairways.
Are you ready for the Challenge?

Can you even get in that part of the park yet? They keep reporting that Valley Dr. is still closed. I wonder how the 50 pair of waders is going so they can have league there next week

They do play slow, but they're always willing to let the faster group play through.

Playable

I am also wondering if it is ready to play. I am coming down on Monday the 21st to play waterworks and ewing. A 2 hours drive to walk through Carp doesnt sound like the greatest time in the world
The ability to drive 400 is great...
The ability to putt 4 from 30 ... not so great!

I was at the course this morning and the course is still NOT playable.

Numbers are 1, 8 and 18 and are still completely under water, the baskets for 7, 16 and 17 are also under water.

Holes 5 and 9 are very muddy.

The pads on the holes that are playable are completely covereded with mud or sand.

So unless you want to play safari on the holes that can be played, or if you want to try to hit the ducks swimming on hole one, it looked like it will be a while before the course can be played.
Always give into peer pressure.

by not playing WW, you haven't missed any good golf in DSM, IMO. Hit up Walnut Ridge, Big Creek, Pickard, Grandview, Ewing, Southwoods, and Maytag Park in Newton if you have time. After those, you'll go to WW and be like.....pffft.

WW needs re-designed before it can be put in the "good" category. The layout is the only massively-wrong thing w/ the course.

Not sure I agree with you on that, I'd say the lack of elevation is it's major problem. :lol:

WW is as well-designed as you can get for the land they were given. The only knock I give it is that if there is OB/trouble on a hole, it will always be on the right.
