Thanks Jeremy. I wish more out of towners would voice this opinion. I totally agree. Touring players expect a cerain standard of quality, and while the course is great the targets are definately sub-par.

Thanks porkchop. I was waiting for someone to post a geopgraphic layout. I think that pretty much clears things up for everyone. North side wins. I will keep the polls open though. Does someone want to start a poll for the baskets at Ewing. :lol: I can't do everything myself. Plus I do have to do actual work once and a while. :D

You forgot to show the Lennox International Disc Golf Course north of Douglas. That cements the north's dominance.

no, that course is a non-factor too, since their baskets are as worthless as Ewing's. 8)

There still need to be east and west dividers, because even if adding Pickard puts Grandview in the North, if you're all the way west of Merle Hay in Johnston that doesn't really do you much good. I'm better off being south and futher East.

geez, you act like we live in Chicago or something. You can be anywhere in this little city in 20 minutes or less.

I drive to Marshalltown 2-4 times a week, about 50 miles, takes a little less than an hour, probably an average commute time for a big city commuter. So, I guess me being used to that makes it not such a big deal to drive to any of our great courses.

Ok since I work (AKA due nothing) third shift on weekends, blows for tourney’s, when all of you are sleeping and not bickering, I will due some more boundaries. I will make an N, S, E, W quadrant map so you all can be at ease. Since you can’t decide what courses should count I will go by the directory, crap courses and all, I will even include Crivaro since it is due to open soon. No Greenwood since it is still a thought.

O by the way the discussion on baskets being a deciding factor is crap: A - you should be close enough that it’s a non factor and B - Ewing and others could be object courses, just be thankful you have a course and baskets.

The baskets at Sugar Bottom suck ass but I still love the course!

Greenwood isn't just a thought. Some form of it will be going in as early as weather allows. I was actually just out there the other day and it may be possible to do some of the work before Winter really settles in. 9 holes of it will be playable by as early as Mid-June next year.

Didn't mean to dog on the DSM clubs work on Greenwood, I just think that the course should be open by the end of this discussion (June seems a little far down the road). But who knows as fast as this State is putting up courses the discussion will probably never end.

Ok any courses that will be done in 2006 can be added to my list just let me know (Perry?). And if you have a course you think is truly ridiculous I will exclude it (i.e. a course like Marshalltown). I will use a formula based on the BSC system. Controversy for sure!

Just PM me your course and why.

Evidently you have not heard the latest. I am now guaranteeing that if Latch continues his current course of action that this course will never make it in the ground. At this point I give it less than a 10% chance no matter what.

I have already said that I won't be playing at Ewing until the baskets are fixed so as far as i'm concerned Ewing doesn't count. As far as being thankful I can play object golf in my backyard. I do have a teepad back there but I have to share it with the dogs.
