This was posted by Andrew Rich ("purediscgolf") on the Eugene Disc Golf Club's forum yesterday; dunno why he's keeping it from us...
So here is a little information for those of you who have been wondering "Whatsup with Clearwater?"
Rebecca and I met with the Superintendent and Planning & Development Manager at the Willamalane Parks Dept this week to discuss how to move forward.
They seemed very interested in Disc Golf and it's future growth. We didn't have to sell them on the game itself one bit.
We had a very constructive conversation with them and our ability to pretty much be self sustainable.
The volunteer base will be very important in not only breaking ground on this course but also with maintaining it.
With the current construction going on for the Mill Race there's a hold being put on future development in the park. The park is in fact closed until Nov. 15th.
After this time we may be able to get into the other side of the park to break ground. They still have plans to build a new parking lot and Greenway Bike Path to connect to Doris Ranch. Starting on the "back nine" could allow us to be out of the way of the parking lot construction.
The proposed layout was a collaborative effort on part of John Stone, Nate Sexton, John Hodgkins, Dave Feldberg and myself. We feel it is a championship level layout that can be easily adapted for recreational use.
Please get in touch with me if you have any questions. PeACE
