the tee pads look pretty nice. they have a good length, maybe too long but its better than being too short and a pretty decent texture on them. the basket anchors look really solid also. it made me happy to see this coming from a parks department that has been a bit difficult in the past about disc golf.
When talking about dealing with the parks dept. in Olympia, "difficult" is an understatement. This is the reason the SPSDGA has officially dissolved our relationship with the Olympia parks dept. We will no longer work with them in any capacity regarding disc golf. If they would like to continue disc golf in Yauger park, they are welcome to use the equipment that our club purchased and installed. If they decide to remove disc golf from their agenda, we will take possession of the equipment.
On a brighter side, the Lacey Parks dept. is very open to the idea of disc golf. We (SPSDGA) are currently working with them to design a course in Woodland Creek Community Park.
