    good fun out there!
    do yourself a favor and avoid the rough...its a doozy all around. every one of our team got bloodied up

    the only thing i kept thinking is how many blackberries will be there come summertime! gotta be optimistic

    the lake view at #8 is a nice place to rest!
    spotters are a good idea on the woodsy holes ... tree hits or errant shots mean some potential lost discs or flesh.

    almost birdied 5,6,7,8 ! it is possible! got a solid bird on 15 and had some near misses on the ace runs of 17+18... nice change after some of those longer holes
    i imagine some bigger arms will finish under par easily!
    12 was pretty long with that well guarded basket on the hill!

    i managed a +1 on my first round there... had some great shots... and learned my way around thanks for the map adam!
    teepads are solid, baskets are pristine --those baskets are friendly... those chains just absorb the discs!
    re: navigation- once you play once you will be fine. has a nice flow to it.


    enjoy! and thanks!!!

    New Cascade Locks course "The Locks Approach"

    Course is open, the port held a contest to name the course, winner was picked mon, the official name is "The Locks Approach"
    Address is- 4 Industial Park Way Cascade Locks Or 97014. (ignore "Cremblett way" sign as you pull in) should be fixed soon
    No parking on cul-de-sac road, parking is the first driveway opening on rt.
    For course map, go to- http://goo.gl/maps/43khq
    Tee signs are not in yet, so map will be helpfull. Tee #1 throws from sidewalk at corner of cul-de-sac road, #2,#3,#11 and #12 throw from road(cul-de-sac), all others are 5'x12' tees
    Mandos on #5 and #12, #5 is right of and #12 is left of.
    #5 has a mandatory fairway, must go rt of mando, yet stay left of fairway OB that runs to the pin on the rt side of fairway
    #8 seems hard to find for some, so after you play #7, continue walking and look for ribbons on left, follow up to top of hill(note: no tee pad for #8 yet, leaving till finished w/ access to bottom)
    On holes 1,2,11and12- road and over OB
    TRASH CANS ARE NOT IN YET EITHER(COMING THOUGH), SO PLEASE PACK IT OUT TILL WE GET THEM IN, Thanks!
    Other questions, or to get on work party list, email me at daniel@discvango.com. ENJOY!

    Yup. Access to/from Hood River doesn't require driving through the town.

    I have no idea if they are considering it, but that is a great idea. I would imagine they will be putting up some kind of kiosk in the parking lot, but drawing folks through town with a big sign is great thinking!

    Whatever they're calling it, has the City (or Port) of Cascade Locks considered putting up a sign for the course that would be visible from I-84, near where they used to have the "Welcome Warm Springs" sign? Few disc golf courses have so much traffic going by on a daily basis, and I imagine they'd take any chance they could get to entice people to pull off the freeway into town.

    (For the record, it should have been called "Course of the Gods.")

    and... "The judges appreciated the name’s originality, the use of disc golf terminology, and the likelihood that the course would be nicknamed “THE LOCKS” - which would still be a strong reference to the Cascade Locks Community."

    too! But they are banking that it becomes "The Locks". Which is okay. My suggestion was Low Point Disc Golf, due to Cascade Locks being the lowest point of the Pacific Crest Trail. But what's done is done or so I think.. The Locks Approach is what it is.

    Does "Locks Approach" have some local meaning, or is there a play on words there that I'm not seeing?

    Good work guys! That does look good enough for navigation purposes for sure. Thanks Adam and cgdg for figuring that out. The course got its official name today: "The Locks Approach DGC". Local citizens were offered a chance to win 50 dollars to name the course. They said they assume it will be nick named "The Locks". Locking out pars on my card the other day.

    You know that is plenty good enough for navigation purposes. Dan gave me a map yesterday. maybe he will post it later.

    Hmm... then maybe we did play all of them. #6 is vaguely coming back to me. I think all that wind messed with my brain.

    Finally?....
