It is only scheduled to be closed during the Winter months.
If you show up in Spring through Fall it will be open..., right Fred?

right-o, Bob-o
Not to worry, we won't restrict Idlewild to tournaments only.
Russ, cause it's an annual event and for a good cause. I am hoping it will be frozen though. No practice rounds and I will be out there, a lot. You are always welcome to come out and help work on the course though, sounds like you got tons of energy to burn.

did not mean to come off as a jerk, just love to play the game.
am really amped about the improvements in my game and want to test myself at the best courses.
I would never intentionally cause damage to a course, and I usually carry a garbaage bag with me while playing rec.!

and I do appreciate what you've done for the club, and the sport Fred!
haven't played the course in a year and a half.......so was just chomping at the bit!!

sorry for any misunderstandings, and who knows......might just take you up on the weekend work offer!!!!!!!!!

You could be shocked by how your attitude changes after you work on a course.
You feel more a part of the course, appreciate it more, and amazingly, want to work on it more and more. Fred is addicted and has time to satify his habit. If I had more time I would be the same way.
It is quite a revelation!!!

Fred....Just to let you know...at the Ice Bowl today...I don't think anyone actually touched the course at all. With all the ice...the course was shielded from the heavy foot traffic and the normal tournament wear and tear. I noticed that the parks department had removed some of the brush piles that we made...one on 14 looked as though it had been burned quiet well to nothing. David Cox shot a 56 or 57 in some crazy conditions...so while you are laid up...think of some crazy ideas to help equalize us noodle arm ams with the David Cox 3000 robot that is currently destroying courses with laser rocket arms, radio controlled finesse, and a big smile...it's just not human.

Yup, I got the basket for 13.

I need a torch to heat it and bend it back - it's pretty wanged up right now.

I believe the plan is to get a replacement basket from the parks, but I'm not too sure how that's going.

If the club would like to repair this basket, I can take it to a metal shop and have them tweak it back into place. I just don't have the equipment needed to do that in my home garage.

Some of the hole adoptees are meeting at hole #16 to finish securing the rr ties along the creek. Bob will have a chain saw to cut the ties so they match up together well. 1:00 pm
Thanks in advance to whoever shows up.

The railroad ties on 16 look great. I could see that you guys took your time and did it right.

Me and Mike played doubles yesterday against Dan and Dave out there. I thought that the course looked really well. The grass is growing very well on 5 at the top of the hill, looks great when you are down at LZ1. In all, the course was in pretty good shape, with all the work done out there...

On another note... Mike and I shot a 29 on the front and a 33 on the back while Dan and Dave shot a 33 and 37.

Brad-
didn't you hear me whistle at you when you were on 15? Had angie with me and I ended up shooting a 78...angie wasn't too far off pace with a 92. did you notice the erosion behind some of the cement holds on 11 and 16? I need to get out there today or this weekend and slide them back into place

Yeah we saw them... it was too flooded in the creek to get down and pull them up. If you got waders, then you may be able to dig them out of the mud in the creek. I expected that to happen until they are cemented together, I just didn't have on the correct clothing to get down in there and pull them up.

here are some pics of Idlewild creek when it was up a few weeks ago... the creek does get higher than this -- these pics were taken after it had dropped some... a few of the bridges would benefit from being elevated half a foot higher...

nice pics Rob....i'll see what i can do to elevate the bridge on 16 with a couple of RR ties. Still looking for some help to finish off 15's RR ties... i'm going to need to saw some of them up to finish off 15. If anyone talks to Chris I would like to help out making the bench on #11. I have one 2x12 by 6 feet left to make the seating area.. just need to get some help getting the posts into the ground. PM me or give me a call at 234-248-9159... thanks!!!

Now you know why the OB lines are where they are. We have actually played a tournament in the rain where the water on the creek was that high or higher. Thanks Rob.

I'll be out later tonight throwing close to 25 lbs of grass seed along idlewild....please trek carefully over the weekend to keep tracks down and allow the seed to start growing....if you are unsure where the seed has been spread, just take a look over the bare spots on the course....it'll be there......
Thanks

Jason, Try not to leave your bag this time ;)

Ty, Have we fixed the bolt on #13 basket yet? Or do I need to come out there tomorrow and do it? I got some bolts washers and nuts at work tonight and brought a few home.
