    Re design VS Alt pin locations

    I'm curious if our course would benefit from a total redesign or if we can make it better with alt pins? I started on this course when it was 21 holes my very 1st tourney was the DRO and that was a long time ago. So I was thinking that this course has been establised for 10 yrs and I would think that a redesign is not the best idea for us. We have players from the coast that have been playing in the DRO for many years and I would assume that they would like alts vs a whole redesign. It would be quicker and easier to just slap in some alt anchors and more the direction that downriver needs. We have a new course coming up at peoples park that we could have a better design for various shot selections. I think we would have a better chance to capture more discgolfers interest if we just did a slight change by adding alts rather than trying to get them to like a redesign, which we know would get a lot of negative feedback. So what I'm saying is we add alt pin locations and fix what holes we need to accommodate the parks dept guidelines. Let me know what you think.

    DeLaveaga is a great blueprint for any course layout. Its 27 holes, has A, B, C, and Tournament Sunday locations. It has a great meeting, practice area and central location. This model is proven time and time again. It is exciting creating and doing new things to the course. Following De Las lead is a smart and proven way to go









    The De Laveaga Disc Golf Course is one of the most highly rated disc golf courses in the world. It is famous for its inspiring natural setting, as well as for its uncompromising challenge. The course was originally installed in 1984, with the vision & hard work of local Tom Schot [1991 Grand Master World Champion.] The original course consisted of 18 holes, with the trademark green 4 X 4 posts as the targets.

    Since then, the park's development has seen the course grow to 27 Holes outfitted with Professional "pole holes". The funds to pay for these "pole holes", cement tee pads, and other necessities have been generated from the activities of the De Laveaga Disc Golf Club, as well as from the generosity of some local players.

    The course is currently & solely maintained by the De Laveaga Disc Golf Club, which was formed in 1986 to promote disc golf in upper De Laveaga Park. The Santa Cruz City Parks & Recreation Department, does not currently contribute to the maintenance of this portion of the park. Therefore, it is the assumed responsibility of all who share in the pleasures of this game, in this park, to help in its necessary upkeep.

    Common sense is the rule at De Laveaga-
    # Be Earth Consious-
    # Pack Your Trash-
    # DO NOT ALTER THE COURSE-
    # Play Quietly-
    # Be Aware of Flying Discs-
    # Now is a good time to quit smoking-
    # Enjoy

    This is a User-Supported Disc Golf Course-you can help in the continued upkeep and improvements to this course by making a contribution to the De Laveaga Disc Golf Club whose goal is to promote the sport of disc golf to the community (donations can be mailed to the address below). Due to the increased number of players, please, adhere to the following, in order that all may enjoy a fun & timely round of disc golf:
    # Please keep your group to five or less. If your group is larger than five, consider splitting into multiple groups. Please be considerate of other players in and out of your group.
    # If your group is large (or slow), allow other groups to proceed through, if asked. Do NOT throw on other groups. Wait until they have holed out before throwing. Then ask politely if you can "Shoot Through".
    # The LAW states you must leash your pets. It can cost you big bucks if the park rangers find your pet unleashed. Also, please, prevent your pet from digging critter craters in the fairways. Dog fights are not cool either, if you know your dog is an egomaniac, leash them, or leave them.
    # The LAW also states NO ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES in the park. Just so you know. Please, RETURN ALL FOUND DISCS TO THE LOST & FOUND. LOSERS WEEPERS IS NOT AN ENFORCEABLE LAW.

    These posts are input in the the process and they do carry weight in the process. I read all these posts regularly, respond from time to time, and sometimes make posts of my own. The present body of work at DR regarding pin and pad movement is coming to a close. The improvements for signage, tee surfaces, a putting area and benches will continue. An item that is getting serious consideration for pin placement is an alternate for #1. In a previous post I announced that extra anchors are on the way. An exact spot remains to be chosen.....Other than that there are one or two more hole changes to get done. There is some erosion control to install. Simultaneously similar upgrades for pads , signs and benches are underway at HB. I think Jon is planning a work party for this Sat. at HB. Watch for a post.

    If there are club members out there digging teepads to their own liking, I suspect there are club members out there tearing out trees and bushes to their own liking as well.
    I've always thought the tearing up of the course was attributed to the "folfers", who care less about the course,club,sport or anything but drinking beer and throwing drivers, but I'm starting to think they would be too lazy or uninterested to modify the course. It may be "low-down, sneaky", club members. Man, that's like having a spy from the evil forces in our midst.

    from what i have learned IT was a club member who took it upon themselves to make a new tee pad because THEY were`nt happy with the one that was there.

    Saturday work party

    We had a good day at Downriver yesterday and accomplished a few things on Jon's list.

    • Moved the tee-sign from old #3's tee-box to #3's new position.
    • Installed a bench at #3.
    • Installed a timber on the downside of #15's tee-box to reduce erosion.
    • Installed a bench at #15.
    • Utilized the old picnic table top for a bench on #2.
    • Repaired 2 areas of vandalism.
    • Recovered the anchor from old #12.

    Thanks to Jon Verbarg, Joe Barnett and Gordy Crafts for these improvements.

    Was a new 18 pad part of this discussion too
    ?
    NO there is nothing wrong with 18`s tee pad .
    You guys talkin' alt pad for #1 too?
    that is a thought right now but i think it will be 11`s tee pad that gets moved back (again working on the safety issue`s) we have also brought timbers for erosion work on hole #4 and for making of stairs from the bottom of the hill by tee pad#4 going up to hole #10.
    As for Jeff's remark, I believe he was referring to the need for a Board vote to validate any club/coordinator decision.
    then he might just as well have said that because the charter does not mention that.
