  • New Rooster Placements

    There are some alternate placements at both the East and West courses.

    West Course, #6 at the marina has 3 placements: short for high water, behind the octabush, and long between the pair of willow trees.

    West Course, #9 will move back to its short position for picnic season.

    East Course, #1 has a new alternate on the right, tucked in under the maple tree and to the right.

    East Course #8 has a new alternate visible from the tee pad, short and on the right, up on the grassy knoll.

    A few more alternates are being considered, and may be installed this summer. Changes are posted on the sign posts, at E#1 and W#1. This does not mean it is cool to throw a temper tantrum and break trees because a pin moved to a new spot.

    Comments on these changes would be good, like how they are playing, or some old time stories about the Octabush in high gorge wind, smacking plastic to the ground.

    West Course #1, shorter to the left, in the trees.
    West Course #8, same distance, out to the right.

    Changes are posted with flagging tape and at tee#1.

      East course, #5 has a new placement about 15 feet deeper into the woods, in the lane. A spotter is recommended.

      East course, #6 has an alternate placement about 30 feet deeper into the woods, in the lane. A spotter is recommended. PLEASE...let the course get naturally beat down without breaking out all of the plants and trees! This keeps the East course challenging.

      The pin placements will remain in the new positions for most of the summer, to allow players to get used to the shots. West course #6 at the marina will drop into its original position behind the octabush as the water level goes down.

      Have a great day!

              Played it last weekend and like the placements.

              Question: how far does the water drop during the Summer? My buddy threw is favorite of favorite disks into the lake
              The banks seemed steep and the water was dark.

                Come on now, guys,...dont throw your good plastic in the marina!

                That said, shots toward the baskets carry greater risk of water, tall grass, and dense foliage BUT... there are some real-time benefits if you are ACCURATE. Rooster is becoming designed so that you can't just crank your shots wildly, you will need some technique.

                The water level will generally continue to drop through the summer, exposing between 30 to 50 feet of shoreline / deep muck. You can only get so far in BAREFOOT.

                I use this chart to watch the water level, so it may help you out:

                The triangles show the historic average, and you can type in dates to see patterns for July and August, (the future, man!
