Work Party Orchard Park September 29th - CANCELLED!
Orchard Park is getting a facelift this fall, due partially to new trail addition but also to increas saftey around the existing paths. We will be adding a new hole with an island green to the field area in the front and removing a hole from the back. Mando trees will be gone, but there will be more OB areas (and they will be more clearly defined than they are now). Generally speaking, the course will lose a couple of the longer holes but get more technical. More importantly, the course will be a lot safer.
To make all this happen, we will be having a work party on September 29th at 9:00 AM. Tasks are still being defined, but at the very least we will be digging out some new tee pads, moving signs, and putting baskets into their new placements.
If all goes well, we will work in the morning and then play the new course in the afternoon.
Thanks for getting this posted Scott. Anyone who plays here at all regularly should think about attending this work party. The course is mostly played by recreational players, I know. But I also know Tuesday Twos has a regular following of more advanced golfers. Plus we're trying to reinforce with the Hillsboro Parks Department that not only is disc golf very popular (as they've learned from the usage at Orchard), but that the disc golfing community is an active and legitimate parks user group.
The work party for September 29th has been cancelled. The park will not close on 9/27 as previously planned. Plans for an upgrade are still in the works, but will be delayed for several weeks. I'm not really sure what's going on, but will post more information once I have it.
