    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 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.

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

    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

    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

    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.
    Keep Hukin'

    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).

    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.

    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.

    Getting better

    City added marker arrows under the baskets to the pipe with direction to next hole and distance.
    City is really making this look good.

    The new course is ok. I feel like it's actually not improved at all. The 2 new "water" holes is basically Russian roulette to even play them. The 100 foot throw isn't worth the risk of it dropping into that creek which at the moment is a small river. Then to even get to the water it's a 10 foot drop to rocks that look like they're straight from mordor. Basically 5-6 arnt worth playing, it's 2 sad holes.

    Sorry I'm a negative goose at the moment. Bad and long day of work.
