Yesterday was quite the blustery day so I decided to see how Embshoff, being two miles away from my residence, played. I think the course guide uses a bit of an understatement with "minor elevation change" - there are some brief vallies. Wind is totally erratic there which made it extremely fun and entertaining to drive. I drove on the first hole and my disc dove straight down as if i threw it at the ground to the bottom of the hill. I thought it was sure to crash into the moist ground but it promptly rose thirty feet at the bottom to climb the hill and my disc hovered with unsteady elevation to within twenty feet of the basket. Putting was definitely difficult.

Basket #3 has been reported as removed. Happily this is not the result of vandals but rather a yearly occurance by the parks since that hillside is used by sledders.

Played Embshoff for the first time on Friday night. This is a great little course. Nice rolling hills for each hole. The rough is really rough however. My oldest son is throwing a roller lately. He was doing 2 shots on several of these holes. Plan to play this one again!

What a coincidence, my buddy and i played Embshoff for the first time today and I decided to try throwing a roller and it helped me get a 2 on a few holes. I was surprised yet very satisfied with the short, compact course. With that course, I've now played at every one on the west side of Hamilton county (Burnett, Winton Woods, Mt. Airy, Harbin, Heritage, Miami Whitewater, and now Embshoff).

Anyone know the status of this course? When do they put back the baskets for play in the spring? Played it only once but it was very fun.

A couple of club meetings back(Gyros and Wings) I mentioned that I had talked to the park director(Jack Sutton) about getting new baskets and nothing ever came of it. I don't think anyone from the club contacted them. I emailed him but got no response. He did mention that they wanted new baskets but redesign of the course was not in the plans. Too many tree huggers in the area. I will shoot him another email and see what happens.

We really liked the layout and such. Just wondering when the pulled baskets would return. Very different play for us than other courses.

I play there all the time. They should be going in soon. When out, I usually just fake the location. The bottom of the basket on three is a bit higher than it is at most courses.

Just got a reply from Jack Sutton of Hamilton county on Embshoff.

Fred,

Our staff has reviewed the Embshoff disc golf area and our current
budget.

We are not budgeted to make any replacements or improvements there in
2008.


Thanks for checking in with me.

Jack
