DG'ers could then use the lower lot.
As far as I understand it, we'll lose holes 1-5, and 18 at least. Upper parking lot is out, and the course would start down in the lower lot as it originally did back in the ...late 80s I beleive. I've seen a couple different people's ideas of how to do a redesign (http://discgolfer.ning.com/group/lakewoodchainsmok...-course-design
). There are definitely some options, but I really think getting in a full 18 without crossing any paths will be challenging (that's one of the big stipulations the parks dept has). Some of the current redesigns that I've seen have holes that go along the south side of Lake Hicks/Garrett - this would put them directly along side a long bay of school classrooms. I'm not really sure if that would work.
It's a bummer to lose so many holes of this course - at least the TAF is a good development project for the local community, not that it makes it much easier to stomach.
