View Full Version : cement on Horning's short course
January 11th, 2011, 12:08 AM
i was wondering if there was ever going to be cement pads put in on the short course?, and if so, would the layout stay the same or be tweaked at all?

I think Bob was planning on it. Personally, I think from a disc golfer's perspective it's unnecessary except on #5 and #6. But it might be good for erosion control.

we don't need them as long as the others, but sure would be nice, 3 is getting a bit deep

This spring I was planning on several projects, benches and tables through out all courses, places to hang disc golf bags while you're throwing and yes, cement pads for the short course. The short throw course pads would be much smaller, about 3.5 x 5 since there is no run up. Thoughts?

Yeah, probably not much need for long pads, I think most people probably stand and deliver or just have an abbreviated runup - and BTW you totally ROCK for putting in tees for that course. You've developed hands down the best teepads I've ever thrown from.

Glad to hear about the cement going in. I know it's not completely necessary but it is great for the locals like me who get out even in the pouring rain. There is just so much thought into these courses. I want to thank you Mr. Horning for all your hard work and planning. (favorite dg destination)

Started pouring cement today on the short course. Started with holes 1-3, will do about 3 a day if weather and time permits. They will be much shorter than the other pads since there should be no wind up but a step or two then throw.

Awesome! Thanks Bob.

After some input on the three pads we did pour we will be lengthening the pads a bit. Currently they are 3.5' X 5.5', but some folks want one more step, so we will go to 7'.

My $.02, If you are going thru the effort of adding concrete tee pads, then you might as well make them 4'x8' for short holes. The experienced player will have options and the youth can make a full run-up until their strength and skill get better.
