  • Carnation, WA

    As a few of you know I've been working some angles to get a 9-holer here in Carneypatch. I'm dealing with a municipallity that has no money but a couple of promising parks. Yesterday, I strolled both parks with one of the city councilmen and he's putting me up first on the agenda at the next meeting on Tuesday. He's totally bought into the idea of disc golf in Carneypatch, but I still need to sell it to the rest of the council.

    I'm working in tandem with a local Eagle Scout prospect to get this sucka into the ground. The kid has managed to schmooz a manufaturor-to-be-named- later out of 9 free baskets, organized a work party at whatever park I can get and is already talking to the area merchants about donating concrete for the sleeves. I'll worry about the tees and signage after we get the go-ahead.

    The wheels of city government turn very slowly out here, but with some luck look for a 2-3 star beginner/intermediate course to go into Valley Memorial Park or Loutsis Park (my preference) by the end of the year!

        That's great Getty! Keep us informed. We should be able to round up a decent work posse when the time comes.

        SWEET!

            Let me get this one in first. TM is a county park so I'd be dealing with the county instead of the city. I've been scouting around there quite a bit lately and see the potential for something similar to White River.

                  UPDATE:

                  I met with the parks committee last night at city hall and they absolutely love the idea of a disc golf course in Loutsis Park! It turns out the city manager was instrumental in getting a course into the ground back in Kansas, and the rest of the committee was excited about a very low-cost attraction one minute from downtown. I speak in front of the full city council Tuesday the 17th for what should be rubber-stamp approval to move forward. We plan on having it up and running in October.

                  Not one dime will come out of the city coffers for construction. There's a portalet and a mutha-flippin' kiosk already in place. There will be a mixture of tight throws throw a skinny-tree forest and some more open hucks. We're still working out the details for tees and signage.

                  PM me if you ever want to see the layout sometime.

                    Great job Getty! You should be proud!

                    Let us know when you need some bodies for a work party. I've never been to Carnation. Where is it? Do they have paved roads there? Running water?

                      You need a mule and a Sherpa guide to get there.
