This has nothing to do with the course in this thread, but...
A few weeks ago, I was looking around 4discgolf and came across http://www.4discgolf.com/14RITC
This is a different course going in at Al Borlin park in Monroe.
I stopped in there on Memorial Day and was able to play 6 holes... the rest of the trails didn't appear to be cut in yet, The fairways were newly cut and pretty stubby. Baskets are in.
Ultimately, it's set up to be a nine hole with alt tee pads for each.
I hadn't noticed any info on this course at this site. If there is, I do apologize. Move or delete as you see fit
I heard the Al Borlin course is now open. This is a beautiful piece of property, but for now the city of Monroe is only allowing 9 holes to be installed.
I received an email over the weekend from the owner of Tall Firs. He said they are very close to opening but have a couple of details to work out before they announce the date. I am going out this week to do a walk through with the owner. If anyone wants to join, PM me.
Saturday, August 23rd, is the opening day for the new Tall Firs Disc Golf Course in Monroe. I was out there last week and it looks like it will be an awesome course. $5 is the daily price to play as much golf as you want. They are currently fixing up the old clubhouse and will have a pro shop in the near future. They are also getting a liquor license so I can finally enjoy a cold adult beverage while playing a round.....finally... http://www.monroemonitor.com/2014/08...pen-disc-golf/

Hater response coming. First The back is much better then the front. 4 of the first 5 holes are basically right on top of one another. the OB lines are at best confusing and the idea of no oil being burned to maintain the course is just crazy. It' might be worth $5 some day but certainly not today

Well I will be back. I want to see how things progress. I would like to see some red ribbons tied around the Mando trees. I was a little confused about the mando line on #5 close right of the pin. I would agree that the no oil thing wont end well for keeping that property playable. It's fun and I have not shot par yet so that and being 25 minutes away will keep me coming back.
