Teepads

Postby KePP » Wed Aug 29, 2007 9:45 pm

I'm thinking if the teepads were 50' people would still plant their foot at the front and follow through past the pad. I don't think it will be an issue at West Lake, though, since WL won't see a tenth of the traffic Eastern does. But I couldn't argue against long teepads. More importantly I wouldn't argue against this guy...

Love the new 19! Other feedback has been very positive on it as well.

So when are the tee pads going in, or are they in already?

I'm meetnig with the contractor this week to walk the layout and show him what needs to be done. It will have to be on his schedule and I don't know how full his schedule is. I'm guessing in October, but it honestly could be next week for all I know.

Fantastic! I cannot wait until they go in, I have sorta been avoiding West Lake because of the lack of tee pads, and am looking forward to enjoying the course.

I've got the opposite view. I like natural tees because they don't wear out my shoes (left sole by big toe) like concrete does. May be bad form on my part, I don't know.

If you're dragging your left big toe when you throw, then yes it is bad form on your part. Get that foot in the air!

I'm thinking bad footwork, yes. Gotta stay light on your toes, not drag 'em. :)

I'll have to work on that. I wear boots when I play; always have. Maybe some lighter shoes would help. Any other suggestions?

Hmmm, never played in boots, (except for winter), but I recommend a trail running shoe or walking show that has some grit to the sole. I wear these Solomon's. Love the shoe, hate the fit. They're just not right for my mold, I think. New Balance has a swwwt pair of black trail walk/run shoes right now that I want.

Any progress on the teepads or did this get delayed until next spring?

Covey, the tee pads are almost done, in fact. Surprise! The guy has been working on them all week. He's still got a few to do, and then some grading around them to make sure they're flush and finished up. Then they'll be seeded. We'll work on the tee signs and posts in the next month or two and we should be all wrapped up before the snow flies.

Once the snow flies, the optimum route on number 5 will be across the lake.... ha ha ha

I'd wait to use the tees until at least this weekend, maybe next week, but they should be all finished up by this weekend from what I understand.

The ranger would love that :roll:

Cool stuff on the pads. Now my friends have one less reason to chicken out.
