Sorry to sound pessimistic but...

Probably best if they close it down right now.

I'm sorry if it came off like that. I don't frown on it as it's not my business. I just wanted to make sure everyone knew that it's private.

Jeez, really?


He is new to the sport and will not go to courses when they are busy. To him it is like going to a movie and people are talking the whole time, so he rents the dvd instead.

I was wondering about the state/federal thing too. I wouldn't mind even making a donation or paying to play- especially since it's men and women who serve(d) our country. It sucks that dumbasses have to ruin the sport's reputation for everyone by throwing trash all over the place and abusing equipment and/or the park itself. Ok, I'm getting off my soap box. :?

You Sir, are correct.

Thats why I played it 5 times before we are kicked off. As for it being fed property, I'd be willing to bet that they can (and will) because it is not a park. There are alot of federal property that is off limit to the average joe smuck .

But while they haven't closed it yet, I will still play there and pick up after others until we cant.

In lieu of closing down the course, I suppose they could request that visitors check in with the front desk and see how that works. If players need to show their faces to someone before they play, that might prevent some bad behavior.

that's interesting. I suggested this to my VA ptsd caseworker person twice back in 2007. I hope it's nice, I've done a lot of sledding on those hills. There is a ton of awesome room back there.

Wow, this course is kicking my a$$. Definitely not the pitch and putt I thought it was gonna be. Shane really stretched this out much more than I expected after walking it with him. There are some sick safari holes out there.

I'd recommend not playing it during business hours. Parking is nearly impossible and there's some pedestrian traffic crossing over the course because so many cars are parked on the other side, and there's lots of cars parked on the edge of the course.
