I know that Lowell, Gordy, Brewster, and perhaps someone else had met with a city official a few years ago to discuss a potential course and walk through the grounds--
not sure what the final word was, but I do know that there was some initial reluctance by the city and that nothing ever materialized--
several of us were going out there fairly often, and either taking a portable basket or just playing a tree course... I guess there's an actual tree course that's been there quite a while, but we didn't know how it played--
There are alot of dog walkers that pass through Hamlin Park, and apparently most of them don't scoop da poop... beware of land mines-- once it was said and done, most agreed that Hamlin wasn't the ideal location for a new course anyway..... but we DO need some more courses in/around Seattle!
What about a course in Everett? I guess that Lowell and some other fellas had proposed plans for a new course there years ago-- and that everything was set and ready for approval, but there was some sort of setback-- can't recall off-hand.... anyway, I live near the Mukilteo Speedway now, and would be all for rallying the troops to get a new course in Everett...
