  • New John Houck designed course in Monroe, WA

    From discgolfcoursereview.com, renowned course designer John Houck:

    "Last week I was working on a new course (the first HouckDesign course in Washington state -- can't say where just yet). It's on an old ball golf course, and it offers several pin locations that I like even better than just a slope."

    Who got the skinny?

      I'm hoping that it is near puget sound.

      No rumors to start from the West Sound. The club has not talked about or heard of any private parties planning to develope a new course in the area.

      The club is activiely seeking property to build a new course in the South Kitsap area, but no positive leads to date.

            Hmmmm.
            Old ball golf course ?
            Hilly.

            Big budget recreation conversion (Houck aint cheap) part of settlement due to large municipal facility recently being built nearby.

            Nawwww, no clue.

            But Imma run up there in the morning and look around.

              I know that there was recently a ball golf course in MLT that shut down and the public was deciding what to do with it. There was enough room for multiple 18 hole dg courses and had a nice pro shop/concession area. Right off I-5.

                    An even if it's a bit far to play regularly, I'm sure the demographics of Monroe plus a good course will make for quite a few new disc golfers in that area.

                      I see that John Houck has made public that the course will be in Monroe, but that it is PRIVATE. I'm sure some of us will find a way to get on, but for most of us, this is depressing news. It is on a former ball golf course that people bought homes on some years ago, wanting a home on a golf course, and then the course was closed.

                      Maybe there will be some sort of agreement to open it up to the public (P2P?) but if not, we're shut out before it even got open.

                        Private course with a clubhouse, in Monroe ?
                        What is there, 12 of us the live around the area ?
                        I'm not sure how the math works out if this is a business proposal, but if its cheap and nice I might make the drive out on the death highway.

                          I see on John Houck's facebook page, with pics of the property, our very own flingin' fireman and wife Pam, helping him take measurements of the new course! Way to go, Paul, we'll have to get all the inside info next time we see ya!

                            Why is there any reason to think that "Private" means anything other than "It's not in a public park; you'll have to pay someone some money to play there"? If it was someone's personal backyard course, I doubt Houck would be publicizing it at ALL.

                            Oh, and it's gotta be this property that he's talking about: http://goo.gl/maps/2SE0p -- it's 18+ acres, and it looks like Paul Clark purchased it out of foreclosure in March.

                              I agree with you. I just didn't want to assume anything until I heard something a little more solid, which I just did.

                              The course will be open to the public as pay to play.

                              Also, yes, I would say that is the property in the link you provided, from the photos I saw on his facebook page.
