A couple of weeks ago I attended the public meeting about the course at Cobblestone Farm. Only 7-8 disc golfers, plus the parks planner (Jeff Dehring), showed up. We talked about the current rough layout and people seemed pretty satisfied with it. One good news item is that the supervisor of the county work had seen the map also and thought it was okay.
Even better, Dehring had spoken with him about the likelihood of disc golfer "trails" in the wetland areas, even showing him some photos of Brown Park when the course was taken out, and he seemed okay with that! We still need to worry about throws over the very protected area that could happen on the new hole 5.
This last Friday I met with Dehring at the park. He wants to move swiftly ahead with the holes that can still go in this fall, which would be 6-7 and 11-18. That would give us a loop of 10 playable holes, teeing off on the other side of the basketball court from the parking lot. 1-5 cannot go in until next year because that fence is now staying up all winter. 8-9 likewise cannot go in until later in the winter when it will be easier for the equipment to get back into the woods.
We also located a nice spot for a practice basket in the triangle formed by the paved walkway, the basketball court, and that very large rock.
I now need to get a few supplies and some volunteer help to begin seriously marking those holes which are going in this year, as quickly as I can find time. If you're interested in helping, call or email me: 355.0431, firstname.lastname@example.org.
