    Can we say "Cement Tee Pads"?

    Hey all, great news!! Last Friday afternoon I was notified by the WCVA grant committee that we got our grant to put in cement tee pads on both the old Canyon course and the new course we're building, plus proffesional signage for all the courses! Woo hoo!! I haven't heard from Mike Phillips if Stub got their grant too, but I would imagine they did, so we're going to really have some top courses out here on the west side!!

    Can I say what great teepads these turned out to be (Gold Course). They are huge.

    I normally stand at the end of the normal small pads (Greenway or Orchard) and then have a small run up to the front for my toss. These things you can park a small plane on.

    Thanks again and great job,

    -Mark

    Up until yesterday I was no sure of the exact placement of tee pads for holes 6, 7, 8 and 12. After measuring them and adding the numbers of fet to the totals I was wrong about the approx 6900 total feet, it's now 7,054 ft. Adam, we may get double tee pads in the future, but for now I figure on setting on the signs listing the par for both gold and blue tees on the same sign, so some of the longer par 3s will be par 4. We do have the course marked with cones right now and we're letting forlks play it to get input.

    That's 383 feet per hole!

    Amateur pads, please.

    We're now welding up the new targets, and they will meet the specs for championship tournaments. Next couple of weeks I'll be prepping the tee pads for poursing, flatening them out and such. The only thing that will slow the course down will be the weather. Hole 6, 7 and 8 need thinning of trees, and I can't get in the woods with a chainsaw right now (forest service retrictions on logging in dry, dry conditions). So we're prepping what we can and get in mostly set in. We have most of the holes marked now too, some folks have been playing it a bit. Comments are mostly two, epic, and the canyon course hole 13 and 18 now look like a walk in the park Total length will be right around 6900 feet, with a lot of up and down.

    Welcome!

    And HH is all that and more. Hornings Hideou is to disc golf as the Field of Dreams is to Baseball.

    Any update on the "concrete" tee pads?

    I got some time off coming up, and need to put together a road trip of disc golf. It would be great to put Horning's on the list if improvements have been made. I will probably go there anyway, but would hate to miss new tee pads by a week.

    Or maybe just skilled in the fine art of smart assery?

    I assume you will be pouring the tee pads with concrete which is a mixture of cement, water, aggregate (sand, rock, etc.) and other lesser ingredients (chemical admixtures).

    Sorry to get all technical on you but you asked. Remember cement is an ingredient in concrete.
