  • Yauger Park Olympia - September 13, 2009

    Work party at Yauger Sunday 13th of Sept. 10am.

    The parks dept. is requesting landscaping above and beyond our original plans. So we will show them, we'll do it!

    Basic plans include installing retaining wall blocks around tee pad #9, and building retaining wall and stairs on hole #8. Other course "maintainence" will include packing more topsoil around tee pads to eliminate tripping hazards, garbage removal, clearing downed limbs from fairways.


    As always, we work, then we play!

          I was kind of thinking the same thing.

          Work party moves to 9:00. Bag tag moves to 2:00. Little compromise, everyone wins.

              I like the way you think!!!


              I knew there was conflict with MCDG when I scheduled the party, there is conflict with something every other weekend in September(ace race, crystal mtn., steilly). We get a lot of help from the MCDG crew, they bust their butts for us when asked. So I don't feel bad if they can't make a party.

                There is going to be a contingency of Club members going/watching the SeaHawks home opener, but enough will show up that we can't change the venue. Besides we're playing the "A Counter Clock-Course Orange" setup.

                Good luck with the work party, Chris. By the way, what's the plan for the Tee for hole 11?

                  Right now hole #11 is sort of in a teporary status. there has been talk of getting rid of hole #11, but that cant happen until we have another hole to replace it with. that might not be for a while. so i guess #11 will just have to be a slippery grass tee pad for now.

                    What's the plan for the tee on #11? Im not sure I know of what you speak. We are working on getting rid of #11 all together, but no change in the tee until that happens.

                      I just confirmed with the parks dept. that a pallet of bricks will be there and waiting for us on Sunday. More bricks will come if needed. We have use of the "Gator" and a park employee to move dirt around and haul bricks.

                        Orion answered my question. I was eluding to the fact that #11 is "slippery when wet", that's all. I'll just continue to throw from the gravel behind the tee box.

                          Were working on getting it moved, nothing ever moves too fast when dealing with parks though. You know this!

                          Until then, just keep track of how many times you throw from the wrong pad, I will keep track of your penalty strokes!

                            This is funny to me because up until a couple months ago, ALL of the tee pads were "slippery when wet", but people still found ways to throw from them. i guess we are just spoiled now that we have concrete.
