  • Another CRUCIAL meeting in Eugene today, 3/16 (different course proposal)...

    the land behind LCC (otherwise known as the Arlie property, or now, an extension of Ridgeline Park) is a 200 acre wonderland and a possible bad a$$ disc golf course.

    what a great two weeks here in Eugene with two big meetings concerning potential courses. be there tonight to help support the course that "players" really want put in. the land being proposed is absolutely perfect for golf which includes elevation, tons of oregon white oak and doug firs, and lots of open space.

    6:00pm - 8:30pm
    Hilyard Community Center (@ amazon park)


    ***this meeting is just as important as last weeks and we need a big turnout to show our interest***


    come one, come all!~
    May the wind be in your favor...

    Hey, we never heard about what happened at the last one. Can someone post a summary in the relevant thread? (http://www.nwdiscgolfnews.com/forum/...ead.php?t=4304)

      Sure, I can do that.

      As for the Arlie property, it is an exciting opportunity, just not one with a short timeline like Alton Baker. Disc golf is definitely on the table for this future park, but it sounds like it would be several years at the earliest before anything happens on this parcel, be it disc golf, bike trails, or anything else. There are significant access issues, zoning issues, permits, and habitat considerations. But it's a big piece and hopefully there are 30 acres or so appropriate for disc golf. Rebecca Duffy and others are doing a great job representing the DG community in the planning process and we are in it for the long haul.

      I can't make this one, but if you go to the meeting and have a chance to speak, think about highlighting the DG community's volunteerism and willingness to take care of the property, our patience over the long term to get a course established, the inherent nature appreciation aspect of disc golf, and that we don't want to site a disc golf course in sensitive habitat.

          Here is the link that shows a disc golf course on the actual draft to the master plan.

          As you can see---its divided. One parcel is 15 acres and the other one is 10 acres. There is about 400 feet to walk to each side but as you can see, there is planned parking in the middle of the courses.

          I want to remind you that this is just a draft and could change because of native species. There is a lot of blackberry and poison oak and we don't know what is under it yet so I will keep you updated. This is a long term project but this course could be amazing.

            I think that I can see where the parking in the middle would be . . . exciting stuff! You rock, Rebecca . . . . and crew
