The new #4 is ready to go! It's a dog-leg right, about 290', with the same basket placements as before. We have created a 'between-the-hedges' hazard near basket placement A! Please look out for tree holes and privet staubs. You may be surprised, but an outside-in righty backhand will take the route as well or better than your flick! Thanks for all your hard work Haley Reese, Alex Vickroy, and Brent Evans. Thanks also to sponsor Amici Milledgeville and Jon Joiner!
Huge thanks to David Brown and Nathan Vickroy for helping us get concrete pads on 1-3 today. Takes a village sometimes. Tomorrow we are putting steps on 3 and 15. Come find us in the morning.
Course maintenance Tuesday-Thursday from 11-5 each day. Weather permitting, we will get 3 solid days to tackle the brush before she fights back in the Spring. Work the course or the course works you. We will keep the group posted on happenings each day. Spread the word and see y'all out there!
Had a great meeting last week with Georgia College RecSports and GC Grounds Operations about getting #MyrtleRidgeDGC in top shape for Intramural play next year! Lots of improvements in the works & we could use some helpers- please comment or email us bfcchainbangers at gmail.com
This is #8 and it shows much of what we did today- spread gravel on improved tee boxes. The gravel isn't the best- it's a bit rough, but we hope that it will compact into a nice surface with more play. #5 got the full treatment, with a concrete surface! Please let us know what you think, and thank Taylor Sherwood when you see him out at the course!
Hard to believe, but this is the post where the current #2 is now. Out in the distance, on the right, just above the tone pole, is the current #1. This was in April 2007.
Did some good work on #18 today, and touched up #14 and #15. There is definitely a chain saw in the future for #18! Just so you guys all know, here is a photo from the tee of the current #1 from 2007. As you can see, there has been some significant growth out there since!
Excellent cool morning yesterday for a workday with Matt and Jake from the Bobcat Frisbee Club!! We cleaned up #13 nicely- Matt made some steps! Moved baskets: #15 to the long (yea!) and #17 to the left. More cleanup to come now that the weather is breaking, including, yes #18 so that you can see the basket again!! (If you can see it, you can hit it.)
