Monte from CDA Parks Dept. emailed me to say that his boss has okayed our proposed layout pretty much as is. We can begin work at any time. Geoff Carr emailed me yesterday to ask how soon he can begin some work out there. Time for interested parties to place their name and phone # on a volunteer call list. Spread the word.
Anyone willing to meet Jeff and I out there next week can help us plan materials needed for various new teepads. My general plan to recommend to the Club is to 1) build level teepads with RR ties on the new holes that need significant leveling
( #3, #4, #6, #11, #12, #13, #17 and #18); install new sleeves or move selected sleeves from existing holes to set up one basket location on each new hole; 3) prep the more level new teepad sites. This work could be done without disrupting play on the existing course. Once all the new teepad sites are prepped and one sleeve is in for each new hole, then 4) pick a weekend to make the switch to the new layout. At that time move all tee mats to new tee sites and place all baskets in new configuration. Add some temporary signage to explain the layout. The course would be closed for as little as one day while the switches are being made. Then with the new course playable, additional work could go on to place the second basket sleeve for each hole, and improve the rest of the tee pads that need only minor changes. After the new course is in play for a month or so, we should have all the alternate placments in and be ready to move baskets from the "A" course to the "B" course.
