For now we need to focus on improving the existing course. Any changes would be long, time consuming and require man power.

yea steps for the hill and new baskets for the outer holes should be first but there are things that could be done like there are several holes that could get longer basket locations without doing much work hole 1 could get one long and right of the original the uphill hole could get one and a lot the clearing for that was done earlier this year 16 could have a long basket with a little clearing work done

Longer holes isn't always better. Yes, holes 2, 3 and 4 are easier but what we can do short term is make them into island holes during tourneys (Including league nights). This will place emphasis on accuracy until we come up with another plan. Any changes (Pin placements) have to be approved by Williamsburg.

^I couldn't agree more Troy. Not every course needs to be long or have wooded tunnel fairways. Maybe using a strategy similar to the gold rope at Winthrop would work. I am sure you could get a ton of rope and stakes for next to nothing.

My main reason for relocating 2-4 is the space. That part of the park should be available for other patrons. For those of us who play that course weekly there are plenty of times where kids are practicing sports in that area. My secondary reason would be ugliness of the wide item holes enclosed by a walking track.

The downed tree blocking the fairway on hole 11 has been cleared.

I am planning on a work day next Sunday (June 8th) starting at 11:00 am and then playing a round of doubles afterwards. Anyone interested please call or text me at 513-608-4189. Weed eaters and saws needed or if anyone wants to walk the course and pick up garbage would be awesome.

Went to the Burg tonight with my buddy Jeff Armstrong and when we got to hole #6 we found the basket GONE. It was a crappy basket but it was our basket. I will have a basket for the Battle of the Burg tourney.

The most frustrating thing is, it was one of the old, shallow DGA baskets, so if someone now has it in their backyard, may you be cursed with eternal spit-outs and chain-throughs! Or (who ever you are that took it) do the right thing, sneak it back in place, and at least erase half the bad karma coming your way.

I also want to thank Darryl Whitaker and Ron Mulligan for all their hard work on the course. They have been cleaning up several holes and really doing an awesome job.

I get so frustrated with people who destroy/steal property on any course. This may sound harsh but the world would be a better place with these type of people wiped off the face of the earth. They are lucky that I do not have that power.

Going out tonight to clean up the course. Ben Culshaw and Jeff Armstrong are going to help me tackle the terrible thorn bushes on top of the hill (Hole #13). We will also do some weed eating on some holes. Anyone wanting to come out is more than welcomed.
