Basket Update

Postby prodiscgolf » Wed Aug 23, 2006 9:50 pm

Should arrive tomorrow (Thursday) in Iowa City. Hopefully the City will mow tomorrow too. There's still a lot to do before we're able to play this course though - steps on 5 or 6 hills, benches, trash cans, 5 ugly trees for the City to remove, more mowing, and the list goes on....

8/24 Update

Postby prodiscgolf » Thu Aug 24, 2006 4:17 pm

The baskets and tee signs are in and the baskets will have to be welded before they're ready to put out. The City was out mowing today and they finished 11-17. They will be back, and hopefully soon. We still have steps to put in, directional signs to install, trimming/weed whacking to finish, and a message board to build. My guess is that we'll be open for play in 3 weeks (now double that for reality).

Directions

Postby prodiscgolf » Fri Aug 25, 2006 3:46 pm

Go to I-80 to exit 244 Dubuque Street.
Head south on Dubuque to the first street light - Foster Road - turn right.
From there follow the brown "Dog Park" signs.
You'll go all the way to practically the end of Foster Rd. It takes a left turn at the end of the finished Peninsula Neighborhood, then you'll have to turn left onto an unnamed road between houses that are being built.
At the bottom of the hill, you'll be directed to a parking lot near the dog park. The first tee is 100 feet from the other end of the parking lot. Still no signs are up, but will be soon.

Comparison

Postby prodiscgolf » Tue Sep 05, 2006 12:30 pm

It will probably play at least as hard as Sugar Bottom's C positions or harder, but will have very few deuce opportunities from the long tees. It's not a pitch-and-putt course. It will be much flatter - it's on the Iowa River - but what it lacks in elevation, it will make up with defined fairways. Especially when it's new, you don't want to be off the fairway neither in the woods nor in the open. Every hole out there has it's own unique feel and will challenge the players. So many cool holes, so little time!

We'll be sharing the parking lot with the dog park. The City knows it will be too small, but I haven't heard any plans to expand it yet. I'm sure they will though so I've left some room between the lot and #1's tee.

I've seen the baskets assembled in their shop and they're ready to put in, but I'm telling them to wait until the course is finished. I HATE having people play while I'm working because there's nothing more I want to do than to play that course. It would honk me off to have put in this many hours and have people playing it when we're still having to work on it. Check out our message board on http://iowadiscgolf.org to see what work needs to get finished before we put in baskets. Come out next Monday and help if you've got the time.

Each tee pad has its own sign indicating both pin locations. I still have to finish the sponsor side of the tee signs.

It's not finished

Postby prodiscgolf » Thu Sep 28, 2006 5:00 pm

We still have to get materials and build the message board, the City needs to mow again - the grass is too long to play, the City needs to put out trash cans, and the City needs to install benches. Still plenty to do out there.
