    Well, there IS this creek, and a pond, and that fence, a few mandos... Better get yourself a map. I would try: www.ordiscgolf.com , www.dgcoursereview.com, www.horningshideout.com, or www.google.com !

      1. fence and over OB

      2. mando left of large tree directly off tee

      3. creek deemed casual water (i deem it casual... don't f'ing argue with me!!!)

      18. mando left of marked (?) tree (it will be marked for the tournament if not already marked) or we may be modifying the tee pad placement and thus taking the mando out of the equation.

      swamp is casual (again, don't f'ing argue with me... i'm in charge here)

      Meadow Ridge

      **disclaimer**
      i am not as familiar with this course, might not remember them all... but i don't think there's actually that many, so here goes:

      1. mando left of marked tree

      6. fence along backside of upper fairway OB (totally marked)

      8. clear cut on left OB & airway over clearcut.

      10. marked OB along the right hand side of the second half of the fairway (it's a loooooong hole so that's what i mean by "second half")

      12. i think there's a mando on this hole just off the tee

      16. mando to right of marked tree waaaaaaay at the end of the fairway

      18. left hand side over road and in the gulley OB (totally marked)



      **all the mandos and OBs on Meadow Ridge are really well marked on the signs and that is how we will have you play them.

      have fun, nathan!

        don't forget your lunch!!!

        i wanted to give people a heads up who maybe weren't familiar with horning's that it's not exactly somewhere that you can just run out real quick like and grab something to eat... we will do our best to give you a nice, leisurely lunch break, but we will be racing the darkness since it's darn close to the shortest day of the year... so... bring a lunch is what i'm sayin' here.

        we will have coffee and hot chocolate, compliments of BJ's Coffee Co., located in Forest Grove, in the morning for you, but we're not providing a lunch. you kids are on your own for that... plan accordingly.

        also, i'd like to encourage folks to bring a reusable travel mug for the hot drinks in the morning... if you forget, we'll totally have your back, but let's be as green as possible and also avoid forgetting little paper cups all over bob's beautiful courses (not that i'm saying you would, just sayin' it could happen, like totally on accident)

              dear sloshies... love, your mom

              couple things here that are pretty dang important to your overall health, safety, well being and general comfort:

              ***please be prepared for chilly and wet weather. bring handwarmers, extra clothes (i recommend two extra sets of clothes... one for your second round and one for the ride home) and plenty of towels. the first slosh i played in out at horning's i went through 3 pairs of shoes and pants and coats... and i remember that there were people who did not bring a change of clothes and they were miserable enough to DNF, you don't want to be those people. another thing to remember is the proper type of clothing... don't wear cotton sweatshirts, blue jeans or cotton socks if it is wet out... they will do nothing to keep you warm. fleece, fleece and more fleece!!!***

              ***drive slowly and carefully. this is no joke people. those curves do not get sunshine on that road and they stay frozen. even when the highways are totally dry and clear these rural roads will stay icy in the shady spots. and don't let the de-icer get you complacent either... sometimes they de-ice and then it just refreezes immediately. there is no need to wreck your car or yourself... leave 10 minutes early and just take it easy, please and thank you.***

              now then, slosh on with your bad selves.

                Pre thanks.

                Just like to thank Emmarose(and helpers) for taking on the challenge of being a T.D.. Hope you run many future events. Being a T.D. I know the time and stress it can create. I can tell by your posts(not just in this thread) that you take this and the game to heart. Thanks for being a T.D.

                    since you didn't say i couldn't argue this one, i will. i don't care if the pin placements are changed, but when you change the tee pad, it just makes it a different course. I would not, for example, consider someone shooting a course record on any course legitimate if it was done with even just one modified tee pad.

                      i totally see your point, xander, and i am actually not totally sold on the idea of changing the tee pad... that being said, i will explain the reasoning behind it... the fairways of 13 and 18 run pretty darn close to eachother and create a situation that can be a touch dangerous... i think one way to deal with this is to require that groups send a spotter on 18 when playing down the hill to avoid clocking the group on the 13 in the head or the face... this can happen... in fact it happened to me last year, which is kind of funny considering that the group had indeed sent a spotter, he just wasn't really paying attention, i guess... and then the dude ended up being a jerk about the whole thing, which is neither here nor there...

                      ... i agree the course record wouldn't count... but i don't want anyone to break their face. i'm happy to hear and take into consideration other people's opinions...

                          Emma, I completely agree with the safety issues you raise. I have seen many a drive sail right of the mando tree and cut down 13's fairway. I say, not that it matters, make a change if you feel it is warranted.

                            ... it wasn't my idea originally and like i said, i'm not totally sold on it... but... i'm just thinking about everyone's beautiful faces... thanks for the input, j-pink.

                              hey andy,

                              before i make the list up to be printed, could you clarify a couple things for me? on meadow ridge... 13 and 14, mando right and left of what exactly? just the other fairways? trees? and do you know if all the mandos are marked out there? thanks.

                              emma

                                thank you so much, joe. so far i have not experienced a ton of stress... probably because, so far, the bulk of my responsiblity has been to post stuff on the forum. my dear ol' dad has put in a ton of time getting things organized and making sure we are thinking of all the little details and hopefully not forgetting anything... and of course we would be nowhere without stumptown and the wisdom and guidance of jeff hagerty... so there you have it... i am clearly just the pretty face of this operation, however i totally accept your pre thanks and very much appreciate it... on behalf of those who are really doing all the work...
