Okoboji Course

Postby cgkdisc » Mon Mar 18, 2013 3:58 pm

Is it too early to get a thread for the Okoboji course coming this year at Kenue Park?

Here's the site and donation form link for anyone who would like to help out:

We're halfway through fundraising for the new course in Okoboji. Here's the link for donations including a draft map of the proposed course layout.

I'll be doing final routing along with marking tees and pins May 22-23 for those in the area who are interested. They should have some or all of the baskets available by then to start installation. Should be throwable sometime the following week weather permitting timely installation. Concrete pads coming later this summer once the design has been tested and any design adjustments made.

This looks like a nice park from the overhead map. What kinds of elevation change are there? On how many holes is elevation a factor? Do any of the holes have undergrowth beneath the canopy, or are the woods mostly widely spaced trees?

Not much underbrush. The oak tree size and spacing will feel similar to Grandview other than the field holes. There's nice undulating terrain with a ridge called a Kane impacting several holes on the east side with maybe 12 holes having some elevation. I think Par comes in around 63.

Thanks, but apparently I don't have rights to look at or post in it?
