the city wont allow or help to improve or maintain the course. they refuse. the "public" @ jones is worthless in regards to even cleaning up after tmeselves. i'd say just bring multiple trash bags with you every round there.

btw i have 14's sign and post in my garage. ill put it in once the ground thaws all the way

The collar in the ground is all banged up too. I have not see what the short placement collar looks like.

I can get it cut and welded.

We had a collar at Camden II hit by a mower. Was able to use a large diameter 4 ft. bar to round it back out. Also muffler shops have expanders to round out tailpipes. Maybe a shop mechanic could lend one out.

Part stores may rent these out too.

Most likely will have to replace the center pole and collar, not much sense in trying to straighten out galv steel when its pretty cheap to replace.

I need to see the gddam basket first though. KVN, where are my pics of this mess??

The collar is mangled with the bottom of the pole still in it. we need to replace the entire collar. the lock should be ok (frozen still).
