    River Shots

    I e-mail the person with the city that is in charge of setting the new part up and she wrote back that everything is a par 3.

      Played the new layout today and loved it.
      I actually like the short water holes. Just make an ace run at them and you should be fine.
      Nice mix of short/long, easy/difficult, open/wooded holes.
      The basket area of 10 needs work and several holes would be unplayable if there were cars or people on picnic benches but it was a decent Sunday and I had the place to myself pretty much so maybe no big deal.
      All in all it's a BIG improvement.

        I played today too. Very nice. I do think the second over-the-creek shot is a bit TOO short, but it's still fun.

        I also worry about safety on #3 (playground) and #4 (parking lot).

          According to the score card that I got at the Dallas Chamber, hole 3, 5, 6 and 18 are all par 2.
          But I was told by the city that every hole on the course is a par 3 back in October.
          Guess the pars will be up to the group.

            In all seriousness, there is no such thing as a par 2.

            Here is a link to a helpful document

            You can see at the bottom that is says "Designing Par 2 holes is not recommended. The lengths are shown as cautionary indicators that a hole is likely too short for that player level."

            So according to this chart, the short holes are either par 3 because of their length and folliage, or too short because of a player's rating.

            Hole Length Par
            3 - 156 - 3
            5 - 145 - 3 (Because of water)
            6 - 105 - Shouldn't be a hole
            18 - 180 - 3

              I played this course for the first time last weekend. I had just played cascade gateway, and wanted a little more golf, so I decided to go check out the 9 hole I read was at Dallas. Of course, upon arriving, I found out it was 18, and ended up playing till dusk. I really enjoyed the course. plenty of trees without annoying blackberry bushes and poison oak so often found on woody courses, so if you threw astray on a drive you didnt spend 5 minutes looking for a disc. Yes, I would agree that a couple holes are unplayable on certain days, ( I skipped 2 holes because of kids on the playground and the likelyhood of hitting a parked car) but overall very enjoyable. Thanks for another fun 18 near salem

                Really aggravating that most of the "next tee" arrows have been broken off though. What the hell??

                  Parks Dept replaces the direction arrows with a thicker metal version. Hopefully this stops the vandals.

                    Hole Markers

                    They have put up hole markers at each of the tee areas. Gives the hole and distance. A few of the holes have been named.

                      Hole 3 and 4

                      The city took down some rather large tree's around the basket for 3. Looks like they removed the basket first - thank god. A picnic table and hibachi style BBQ did not fair so well So the basket on 3 is gone and there is a lot of tree debris in this area including the tee for 4.

                        Hole 3 Basket back

                        The trees are gone from the fairway on 3 and 4 and parking lot. Basket for 3 back in place.

                          Isn't #3 the tiny little hole near the picnics and playgrounds? I wish they would take out #3 and #4 and put them over on the other side of the creek between #5 and #6.

                            Yep, hole 3 is the shortest hole on the course. I agree with you, although I'd personally completely remove holes 3-6, as well as possibly hole 18. Hole 3 is really too short for even a blue-level course, hole 4 has no safe line other than directly over the parking lot, and holes 5 and 6 again are really too short, not to mention the river precludes any recovery of the exceptionally-unlucky shot that somehow hits a tree or rolls in. Basically, they just don't add anything to the course, which is otherwise excellent (in my opinion).

                              I love throwing across the creek, although I think #5 and #6 could both be made longer -- especially #5, which presents very little challenge.

                                Tee pads

                                Along with the removal of a bunch of trees on holes 3, 4, 6 and 7, and the play ground equipment by 3 fairway. The Park's Dept has removed an old paved walk way that went from tee box 1 to the bridge over the creek.
                                It has been replaced with a new walkway that includes tee pads for holes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 9. Also cement tee pads look to be added to 7 and 8.
                                Half paved (front 9) / half natural (back 9).
                                New play sturcture put in, still next to the fairway on 3.
                                Now we need the back done.
