Hopefully others who've gotten courses installed will chime in.
The state is looking to cut costs and possibly raise revenue for parks by adding a new fee.
They asked people if they would prefer a $5 license renewal fee with an "opt out" box on the form, or a $5 parking fee at the parks.
People preferred the second option.
You could coax 5 dollars out of me to play some disc golf there. It could be a nice balance of holes around the fields and in the woods, as long as there is no shots that could go over the bluffs, thats a long nasty climb.
The Kettles is also there, and it could house a course as well.
If you convinced the state that this could help bring in revenue, I think they would go for it.
I'm still most interested in the new, proposed City of Everett course, and the Redmond parks relocation plan for the Juel course. I imagine everything is on hold for the near future though.
I think we need a Disc Golf stimulus package.
