End of the Year Doubles?

End of the Year Doubles?

Postby Sidearm » Mon Dec 15, 2008 11:53 am

My brother & I have enjoyed playing the Indian Hills course when we have visited family in Keokuk County between Christmas & New Year's. Neither of us have played the new course in Ottumwa & would like to play it on December 30th or 31st. Are any local players interested in joining us for a round or two? I'm sure you would make our lives easier when it comes to hole location, preferred routes, etc.

If it has to be a money round, we just ask that you give us a chance. Our combined rating is 1826 :roll:. How about one stroke for every 10 ratings points difference (i.e., if our combined rating is 1826 & your combined rating is 1886, you give us 6 strokes)? We would also be interested in playing some WOLF.

Thanks,
Dave Kerkove

I would be game for that action, but I would need to talk to Fausch as my partner. Guys up this way say he is clutch on Ottumwa course :lol:

No way I'm playing for money if Fausch is involved :lol:. Actually, I was just hoping to play a round or two with some locals -- I know too many players who won't step foot on the course unless a little money is involved. How about 3 strokes for a 60 point combined difference? Straight up?

Thanks, Fryguy, for being willing to give us directions. Do the holes have a nice flow to them or would we get hopelessly lost trying to figure out the course without directions/a guide? I have the feeling we will be giving you a call.

Thanks again,

Did all the pads get put in there? Also, stupid question but are you OB if the pond is frozen and you can throw from it?

Throwing from a frozen pond

Postby Sidearm » Tue Dec 23, 2008 9:11 pm

Yes, you are o.b. if your disc comes to rest on a frozen pond...unless you are a Bushwacker :P . Does anyone know anybody who has fallen through the ice retrieving a disc?

Some people play winter rules, with relaxed OB standards. You could agree in advance to play the pond safe.

Great Course!

Postby Sidearm » Tue Jan 06, 2009 10:43 am

My brother & I played Memorial on December 31st. Although the conditions were far from ideal, I really enjoyed playing the course. IMHO some trimming is needed here and there, but I thought those who planned/created this course did a great job. I am looking forward to playing it without snow & ice. On the hole that's near the road (6 or 7?) our missed putts kept sliding back down to the trees -- we should have had a drop-in 3 & a drop-in circle 4 but we instead took a 7 and a circle 6 :roll:.

Again, thanks for the great courses in Ottumwa. I remember playing the "cone" baskets in Ottumwa in the early to mid-90's, and, while it was enjoyable, it doesn't compare to the experiences I have had at Indian Hills & now Memorial. By the way, whatever happened to those old cone baskets?
