I though I read something about a work party at Woodmansee this past weekend? Can someone from the Salem area let us know how it went and if more are planned to get this new course into the ground?
My impression was that they were actually putting in baskets and tee signs on Saturday. I was thinking of heading down on Sunday, but didn't get a confirmation (on that other forum ) whether it'd actually happened, so I went to Horning's instead...
The last two work parties went great. We had 22 people last week to install the sleeves and toe boards, cut brush, clear limbs, etc. That was the big push to get all of the real work done and the club really came through.
Saturday, Sep. 6 we had 16 people come out and help to haul away the brush that was cut the week before, clear some limbs and debris, and place the baskets. We played the inaugural round of doubles at 12:45 on Saturday!
The course is playable, but there is still a bit of work that I will be finishing over the next couple of weeks. I am building the tee signs, and will install them as I get them made. One of the walk-out trails still needs to be cleared a bit, and I'm looking for a good outdoor bulletin board.
The course is playable, if you have time to hit cascade gateway and woodmansee on the same day, very nice contrast. Woodmansee has a good variety, however i think it will improve as time progresses. suggest spotter on #6. there are a ton of bees everywhere so be careful. but fun 9 holer.
