What is this course like? 18 holes? long, short , technical? How long to play it? Concrete pads? Caddies provided?
Details are still being worked out. Course in it's current configuration is not very long. 12 holes. mostly natural tee pads. However, the tourney layout is a bit different (I use tourney layout loosely because it isn't finalized and can be changed). Tourney layout will add more holes to bring it to at least 15. There will be holes that will be longer and have more difficulty in this layout, including the possible island hole. With that said it should be a fun course and will give some challenge to everyone who plays. Besides it is bringing a PDGA event to SW Washington, I think that is flippin sweet.
I welcome suggestions on proposed changes to the layout at Leverich for the upcoming Wash Slosh. It is our desire to make the course fun and challenging for all levels of players.
Hole 1: Round one normal (current) layout. Round two the basket will be in the short position (so hole 14 (11) can be long) however, the tee will be moved back into the parking lot. Possible O.B. line separating the fairway of 1 & 15 (12).
Hole 2: Normal round 1, possibly move the tee back up hill for round two.
Hole 3 & 5: Add out-of-bounds line down center of field to indicate fairway for each hole, this provides for player safety and makes both holes slightly more challenging. Considering moving basket farther back for round two.
Hole 4: Round one normal layout. Round two move tee to a under the 15th Avenue overpass. Drop zone for mando in round 1
Hole 5: Considering the possibility of moving the tee back for round two.
Hole 6: A new hole located on the north side of the path which runs parallel to the current hole 6. Path and left of path O.B.
Hole 7: Drop zone for missed mando, possible alternate pin placement for round two.
Hole 8: A new hole located just south of the hole 7 basket and throwing east towards the tee for hole 11.
Hole 9: Normal hole 6, (as always) the path and everything to the right (north) of path is out of bounds.
Hole 10: Normal hole 8 first round, second round tee is moved back approximately 100'
Hole 11: Normal hole 9
Hole 12: Normal tee for hole 10, with basket located in the short position. Second round, might be a short hole over the creek.
Hole 13: New hole plays to normal basket 10, tee will be from the path directly west of the basket. Second round would then be the current hole 10. As always, the paths and everything beyond the path is O.B. including south of the far path near creek.
Hole 14: Normal hole 11. Play to short position in round one, plays to long position for round two.
Hole 15: Normal hole 12. Round one plays to normal position, Round two plays to an island basket located in middle of parking lot. Possible O.B. line separating fairway 15 from fairway 1.
Ryan and I will be at Leverich this Saturday at 9 a.m. if anyone wants to find us and make suggestions.
