I think that's a fair statement. I voted for the option to explore other options at other courses. That was before I knew that DSM P&R was dangling 5K out there for us to use at Greenwood.
That being said.......Is that 5K the P&R is willing to pay only
to be used at Greenwood Park? Or--could this money be used at another DSM P&R location where an 18 holer would be more viable? Just asking the question.....because I do not know.
It would make sense to me that DSM P&R would rather put money into concrete on a course that they know will stay, and not end up getting pulled in a few years, because some helmets trashed another 9-holer and made us all look bad, or because the environmentalists team up with the park neighbors and win their battle.....like they did at Margo.
I'm with Gunnick, I'm against a niner, and/or splitting up a set of 18 baskets, whether they're Ewing's or the good ones.
I'd love for a course to go in Greenwood, but let's face it...If it's a nine holer, we ain't gonna play it. It wouldn't be an option for leagues, tournaments, or even much casual play. Think about it. How many times did you play Waukee, or Southwoods in the last year? Unless you live right nearby, like Joe T (to Southwoods)and go there for a quickie, you're like me, and you go to the great courses DSM has to offer, especially if you're like me in that your playing time is limited anyways, so I like to get the best out of it.
Just my opinions folks, for you to all chew on. I will never be offended by any of you disagreeing with them, so don't ever think that I would be.
