How do you rig an Ace Pole. Either you have what it takes or you don't. You just keep trying and trying and trying and so forth. Good luck Adam. I hope you get one soon......

Here's a better version of the Par Guidelines. Click once for bigger and twice for really big.

Hit the top band on 16 the other day. I got a buck for 51 club, but I still think that Ace Pole is rigged.

Hey Randy,
Tom would know better than I do, but I think I've heard 645 ft and based on the map that seems reasonable. The existing pin location will definitly be a par 4. I was scoping out the fairway of 18 the other day and wondering if it will be possible to throw a roller?

Thanks to Trevin Kewen for the benches at the Grove

When 18 is all done how long is it going to be?

Hey Tab,
Good to hear from you. Thanks for the props. The hole map for hole 8 reads "c: 498'?, par 4". Everyone who plays this pin position will play it as a par 4 regardless of their level. This is based on the model set up by the "Ed Headrick Memorial Course" at The International Disc Golf Center in Georgia. Check out this link to the future of disc golf.
Ed Headrick Memorial Course
Thanks to Chuck Kennedy from Innova for his valueable input, Ryan Cole, Scoot and Tom. No thanks to me, I was a stick in the mud about this one.

The question about blue level versus gold level is this. Somebody out there who understands this stuff better than I do please jump in. If a 1000 rated player plays hole 8C 10 times and takes their average score will it be 4? more than 4? or less than 4? If there average is about 4 then the hole is a gold level par 4. My guess is that 8C is more of a blue level par 4 which means that 1000 rated players will average less than 4. Any opinions?

Club Meeting
From Gene Fackler:
May 4th is the next Eugene Disc Golf Club meeting. 6:30 pm @ Warren Hench’s house. 618 Hamilton Street, Springfield . You get to it off of Centennial Blvd. Bring your own drinks and a snack if you want. Any questions call. Gene 541-285-4281….

Hey Adam,
I am not a 1000 rated player, but I've been around for awhile and where I learned to play the course had several par 4, and one par 5 hole, but the format for Tournament play is "All hole to be par three" The way you play the course par is all up to the person. If you make score cards for a specific course you should include Red, Blue, White, and Gold and let each player determine the way they want to score themselves. When in a Tournament all players have to score the same way in their own groups, so it doesn't matter. By the way, great job on the course development. Sorry I haven't been a lot of help lately, my school schedule has been filling all my time, except for Fri. mornings. Maybe I can help some time soon, after this term. It looks like there may be a Tee Pad going in soon on 17, I'd like to help. Thanks,

Jon Mason and Tyler for your hard work

The Grove now officially has a par 4 hole(8C). Comments? Yeah! I now there are a lot of mixed feelings when it comes to par. I myself have gotten very accustomed to the base 54 par at Dexter and I think it works well. No doubt there will be a lot of confusion about a changing overall course par, but we have decided to teach to the top of the class. In true Grover fashion we are going to shoot now and ask questions later. If I can I'll post a copy of the PDGA document for determining par. How long before somebody Aces 8C? It is Aceable. Does a true Eagle 2 get an honorable mention on the Ace Pole, Gene?

Any 950(Blue Level) or 1000 rated (Gold Level) players out there want to offer an opinion on whether it's blue or gold?

Yeah I know it's hard to see!
