Hi everyone!

I'm trying NOT to hit any of the little trees I planted around my home-built course. They're caged like tomatoes to protect them until they get bigger. I planted 74 of them this year and only about 8 of them died thus far(not by a disc)!

I can get tractors this fall if anyone needs help in the Thumb Area (in Michigan).

And when you're done playing a round, if you see some guys who've just mowed that course you were playing, buy 'em all drinks or give 'em a souvenir or just say Thanks!

Maintenance, eh? I think I've done a good job of factoring in the maintenance issue when I've designed courses. A good relationship with the park was made at Forked Run State Park, and they knew what would be needed as far as mowing, etc, was concerned, and they liked it from the first day. Especially since I had Chris Deitzel representing Pennsylvania. I think it was Tom Monroe who drove by on one of those first days, as well, and the park staff was amazed at the number of people who visited the park from all over the state, and those from out of state. So, a good course that draws players from many miles needs to make sure the park staff knows about them. I even put a disc golf guest book in the park office (just after hole 11?), but not sure if that's still there.

Other courses I did have done well w.r.t. maintenance. The ONU course in Ada, Ohio is awesome due to the guys on the grounds crew. The course at Great Seal State Park in Chillicothe OH requires minimal mowing which is sometimes neglected but they do a good job, especially considering there's not a park garage on site, and it probably is good w.r.t. maintenance that the course follows the existing trails. And then there's Pike Lake State Park, where the park manager is way above what any disc golfer would expect when it comes to embracing the sport and managing the disc golf course.

Summary, IMO, #1, befriend your park manager and all the staff and you'll be rewarded with great maintenance. And #2, be sure to show the park staff how the disc golf course results in increased number of visitors. Get those comment cards, guest books, personal handshakes, etc.

How lucky we are to be involved in any form of course construction.
Dream holes aside, it all depends on the size, and given restrictions of the land.
And what about maintenance? Is it done at your park?
