Also what condition is the course in overall?

The basket is still gone on 8. However, there have been a couple of improvements. There's a nice big sign/course map by the first tee. The tee pads on the lower holes were finally poured. The creek is down so it's pretty easy to cross, but the bridge between 9 and 10 was washed away. There's a tree in it's place with a couple rocks but it's not the easiest walk across the water. Besides the missing basket it's about as playable as it's ever been.

Nice steps and bridge on 1 now too. Really, two bridges in back and this course is close to finished.

Two bridges, a basket and a consistent mowing schedule...

And a fix for holes 4 and 5. Don't really care for the transition between these two holes. You could have a really killer hole if you could combine these two. But then you would still be left with an odd transition.

Really? Because you have to come back down the fairway? If you go on up to the left of the hole, it works to walk down that road, right to the teepad. Doesn't seem that bad to me, and I like both 4 and 5 as holes.

(did I just call you ashole?)

Yeah, The idea is to jump on the road to get to #5 tee. It's really not that bad of a walk. Similar in length to the GV #5-#6 transition. Plus, it's downhill.

I have to admit that after 2 rounds the walks are starting to wear on me. I like all the holes with the possible exception of 18, but after killing yourself on hole 3, then the walk to 5, the walk to 6, 9-10, 11-12, 12-13, and 17-18 and then 3 precarious creek crossings on top of that makes it a little too much work.

Do they care to even work on the suggestions for this course? Or is it just going to take them 5 years to officially "finish" this otherwise nice course?

Well, somebody's working on the course. See Clue and my posts.

Yeah, it's far from abandoned. The bottom of the sledding hill was mowed. It's in way better shape than Big Creek. I don't know anything about who's in charge or what they know about the game.

There's a couple local guys who headed up the project who look after the place. The P&R just does the mowing. Boone has no money, so it's going to be a while until everything is where we envisioned it.

That's good to know, thanks guys. As long as someone's keeping the eye on the ball - but the lack of funding helps to understand the pace. Thanks to all 3 of you for that info.

so let me get this straight....The city of Boone purchased 18 Discatcher's and don't insure any of their property?

This course, and Memorial in Ottumwa are a perfect example of why you don't put baskets in the ground till the course is done. Shit never gets finished. As far as the city not having $400 to replace a basket.....bullshit. If they really don't have property insurance.....lmao...
