  • Horning's course #3

    Hi all, here's an update. Right now all holes except for 6, 7 and 8 are playable, and we're working on 6 and 7 today. We've got the tee pads (dirt right now) and targets area marked with cones, and do have maps at the house by the lake, so if anyone wants to play and give input that's great! Total length on the course now looks to be 7,054 feet, with gold tee ratings of two par 4s and one par 5. When we get it all set we'll also list the rating as a blue tee course, which will list four par 4s and possibly the par 5 being a par 6. We're moving right along!!

    That's so awesome, I was there yesterday for the first time as I live four hours away from there and the two courses in place I just fell in love with and I can only imagine how great the new long one is going to be. Horning's Hideout is the best destination in the country for disc golf in my opinion because of how great the courses are, camping, fishing and all of the other things available to you onsite. The amount of work put into the two courses so far with making the baskets and putting the courses in and the daily/weekly/monthly maintaince required to keep the course is prestine condition is absolutly outstanding, keep up the great work out there Bob, I will be making another trip down there very very soon!
    Sometimes my mind boggles. It's so deep my mind actually boggles.

        Does the J in JMan stand for JERKman?

          I know, what nerve, It takes me 10 seconds to go from my couch to the 12 tee at my home course, at least he gets to drive

            That was my takeaway after one round through the 15 holes that were set up. This will probably end up being my favorite of the three courses on the property.

            Thanks and great job!

              Please, do not blasphemize the game of golf by setting a par of 6. The game has done just fine for centuries with pars 3, 4, and 5. Nothing wrong with having a difficult par 5 that rarely gets birdied.

              I am delighted to hear about the 3rd course! Bob, if you hold a work party, I bet a lot of people would show up....

                actually it started with one long hole, par being how many shots were taken in the round, the shots being from a fifth of scotch, don't recall how many that was, they probably didn't either by the time they were done, but I do agree, make it a par 5,(hey for all you people out there, I found the spellcheck icon, it's got a million other ones too, I bet one is for punctuation,
                there's so many ,no wonder I threw the book away)

                  Shot The Highlands yesterday, but before we headed out Bob and I drove up to the T for #8...Oh baby. Can you say 400+ feet from T to pin with 80 feet down. Clear routes on the left and right, with rough on both side and down the middle. This course is going to

                    I noticed hole two's basket (cone) was really close to tee three,
                    other than that the few holes i played were fun.
                    Good work out there.

                      so does "playable" mean that the baskets are there? or does it mean that the course is ready for the baskets and sleeves to be put in now?

                        I think "playable" means that the fairways have been logged out and there are ribbons or stakes marking the teepads and future basket placements.

                          correct, there are cones at the pin placements and flags at the Ts. Bob is hoping folks will play it and give some feedback before concrete goes in for collars and Ts. Headed out there now...

                              The game existed long before the basket was ever invented, and yes, it was still fun.
