West Lake work night?

Yep. Completely agree! Number 16 is also not in the best shape. IMO the tree in the middle of the fairway needs cleaned up on the right side to give u a shot to the basket. Instead it plays as a 390 ft par 4.

16, 18, and 20 need a haircut and they will play closer to their pars.

The only other spots I saw some things that need to go were 2, 3, and 14.


Should we consider coordinating a West Lake work night with the parks people? It is our best course... and we haven't had to do much upkeep on it. Seems like we're overdue.

Holes recommended so far: 2, 3, 14, 16, 18, 20

we're not allowed to cut anything out there. I went out there last Thursday I think and pointed out a bunch of stuff. I guess they didn't get all of it.

It would be great if that were an option, however, the Ranger has specifically told me that there is to be no work done on the course by anyone other than "their people".

I will certainly offer our labor to assist in any course related maintenance, as I know a lot of us were there to help put the pins in the ground.

I was going to send them a re-cap and include all the positive comments, so now I will also include any assessments about the course and it's "needs".

It may be liability issue also so it is understandable that they are not allowing volunteers out to possible injure themselves.

There are also protected trees out there that can't be cut.
