    200 x 2 = 600
    = 6250

    The longest holes would only be 450 feet. Those holes would help everyone, smart control would get you the par.
    Nathan, what are these numbers from? not the planned course here.

        course

        Hornings is sounding better and better, looking for a grounds keeper??? I'd LOVE to move back, have the wife take a transfer to once again spend my days playing with plants and flying plastic We got tired of sub-zero temps and unscenic flat land about a minute after getting here.

            I would agree.

            Benton County Parks & Natural Areas are happy with the Adair 18 hole layout and aren't going to allow any expansion to the disc golf course. The WDGC is working with the parks dept to preserve & protect what we have built there. The club is continuing to make improvements and subtle changes like the new pin position on 13 and working on the ledge for hole 3. Options like alternate tee pads are not going to be allowed, replacing the rubber tees with concrete is possible but are on hold by the parks department.

            As many know the EDGC is working closely with Oregon State Parks to preserve & protect what has been built at Dexter.

            The amount of use these courses are now seeing is putting more and more wear & tear on the landscape. Undoubtedly many courses in the Northwest are seeing these same things and we all need to be aware of that.

              Just an example that a overall long course can have excellent balance and not neccesarily all long holes and that they can handle just a few long ones without special tees. I have no idea what you have planned, just supporting the idea of a long course and relieve those who are in "panic" mode hehehe...

                  Absolutely. This is why we need to keep building courses. Lots of them. Which brings us back to...

                    I'm stoked. Who is helping design and giving advice on the course? Who has input and who has final say?

I am planning on getting the next course there (gold rated), along with cement tee pads and the targets certified by PDGA. Also by the time the ODDGA plays in May, I plan on having several holes on the original course lengthened like we've talked about, making that a true par three/four course, and yes, eventually get better gravel trails and cement tee pads there too.
                        That's sexy talk right there. Thanks, Bob!

                        See you tomorrow evening. Several of us coming out for some glow on the shorty. Join us if you can.

                          It's not uncommon for gold courses to have shorter white level tees that end up being played more often than the gold tees for day-to-day play. At Highbridge, WI, the gold course is the least popular among the four in terms of total rounds. However, everyone wants to try the 9500+ foot challenge at least once. Then, many play the 7000+ ft white tees the next times they visit.
