I have a few projects in mind-
I'd like to see the cyclone fence removed from hole 2, as well as casual play OB on that hole. (For tourneys, reinstate OB with a painted line).
Gather all the random bits of concrete from the course, sledge them down to brick-size pieces, and build an elevated pin mound on one of the holes, like 3, 8, or 9.
Hack a permanent side path through the brush between 7 basket and 8 teepad, to keep the oncoming traffic from walking down 8's fairway.
Relocate some of the "next tee" signs. Most are placed well, some are placed foolishly.
I want to get my hands on a whole bunch of old bricks, and install permanent 10-meter circles in the ground. This is a huge project, probably take a while.
Get rid of most of the blackberries in the hole 4 OB area to speed disc retrieval.
I have a slew of other ideas, but they mostly come to me while I'm out on the course. Post that schedule sooner than later, Jub, and I'll be there as often as I can
I like the sound of a lot of those. I say on 2 though, take the fence out, but don't worry about reinstating OB. Having a fence there made it logical to be OB, but with no fence, there's no safety issue or anything, so all it would do is make the hole artificially tougher. I'm not a fan of OB for the sake of OB--I'd rather see some sort of bunker or obstacle installed there if we want to discourage people trying to bomb it long over the laurel.
I like the elevated pin idea. I think it could work on any hole, but out of those, I'd say 3 is the most "vanilla" and would benefit it the most. 5 would also be a candidate.
What about adjusting 4 and/or 9's pins so they don't come so close to each other?
