Are the plans only for the southern end of the park? We took a look at the site yesterday and were thinking there could be nine holes in the southern end and nine in the wooded area between the park and the freeway. Either way please sign me up for any work parties, meetings or whatever.
Looking forward to a Basket Fund Raising Event.
Word! Where would we hold a basket raising tournament? Fircrest?
Thomas aka sillybizz would like that. Afterall, it is HIS course.
I never really even considered the unimproved portion on the west side of Silver Lake Road, its swampy, and very narrow. With the road and the freeway down both sides, and I think a trailer park on the south end, I didnt think it would be easily made safe for golfing.
The south portion of the park is already improved, so its easy to install a course, almost turn key, and the paths and walkways are already there.
All my pictures are from the park area on the east side of Silver Lake Road.
The road you see in these pictures , is actually inside the park, and serves only as a walkway presently. Carefully placed tees and baskets would mean at least a few of these holes could be accesible to more golfers.
Silver Lake Road is on the left side of the fence in the picture below
Don't forget Volunteer Park and Fredrickson! If memory serves me John I took you at Volunteer in Lakebay. hahah of course then you killed me at Dalaiwood and you got a skip ace, but let's not talk about that.
By the way I challenge anyone at any of those courses mentioned and I will win. hehee
Sometimes my mind boggles. It's so deep my mind actually boggles.
One of the reasons why it was decided to keep this under wraps is DG'rs have a tendency to over commit or promise to do to much. Every project is on a shoestring budget. I guess what I am trying to say is I am hoping to avoid some of the maintenance headaches we have at almost all the other courses in Western WA. My approach is lets see what the P/R are willing to do for us. Like they already have the flymats, are willing to do some of the heavy clearing and maybe even have baskets funds. It's been my experience DG'rs will offer to do everything ourselves just to get the course in. The P/R has already had 6 inquiries about heading up this type of project, fortunately all have been redirected back to us.
It's time to be very patient. Lets see how this plays out.
So we keep a lock box full of R-Pro Hydras on the shore, and a floating barrier maybe in a 20 foot cirlce around the end of the peninsula, to capture all the floating discs and corral them in like little bathtub ducks.
Here's another view, its not really a dock, there is shrubs growing out at the end.
This would be great. Just moved up here from Mountlake and am only about 10min away. Nice to see some possible courses coming into the picture here. Great work Jub let me know if I can do anything to help.
