I caught wind that there might be a park going up at Fort Nugent Park. I went by 6 months ago and it did not look very promising. I stopped by last week and saw that a lot more done in the park. There were concrete tee pads and all the pins concrete in. I called the parks today to ask a few questions about the park. The parks department went to a parks seminar and found a disc golf booth there and found deep interest. They met with a guy named (Lowell?) who is known to design courses and is a Ultimate champion??? Anyways, there are 18 holes and they are doing a "splash" opening the last week of May. They said they bought a kit from Innova that has all the baskets and signs. I am going to walk the whole 18 tommorrow and bring out my basket and lunk it around the course. I am excited because I want to build at least two more courses on Whidbey. Any ideas about setting up a club and getting tourneys started is much appreciated!
Can I join you? I live over on Marrowstone Island and I would love to join up with someone to play.

It's nice to hear that Whidbey is getting a course.
It's even better that the city is putting it in. No need for a club to be the primary caretakers of the course. I hope that course designer that they used put together a good course.
I am not happy that they put it in after I moved out of the state!
