I like the front like 15 holes on this course, but the back should be redesigned. When im playing and i get to hole 16 and its the same thing as 15 and there is little more than a walking trail then thigh high grass. Im not trying to say there should be open fairways all over but running a 4 wheel trail would be nice.

Phil, I didn't get a chance to play Pride this weekend. I wanted to see what needs done before I meet with the park director.
How bad does it look?
If you plan on doing some work at Pride I might be able to pay you for the labor, no promises but they have paid in the past.
Thanks for all your good work lately.

It needs work all over! 5 is horrible. 17 is just as bad. All the wooded holes need work. 18 has been mowed recently, but still needs work. It's a shame, a crying shame.

Agreed. Some of us played there from 11-1:30. #3 had a lot of very low hanging branches. I like tight fairways but...
#5 had grass & weeds taller than the basket
#7,17 had high grass
#18 did look as if it had been cut more recently than the other holes but it's still getting tall

I haven't played Pride Park in ten years. Has it gotten better since then?

Well, I remember a Pride Park somewhere in Kentucky near Banklick. A few years back, me and my buds were trying to find Banklick and we came across this park next to the highway. We originally thought it was Banklick. It was horrible. I think it was only nine holes. Terrible layout. Very boring. I thought it was called Pride Park. All I know, it was so bad I never went back. Probably wasn't ten years ago, more like six or seven.

Your probably thinking of Pioneer park. That is the closest one that would be near Banklick. Anyhow just as Paul said...hole 2 has some low limbs. Hole 3 needs to be opened up some. Hole 5 needs mowed and/or weed whacked. Miscellaneous trimming of limbs and weed whacking from 6-16. 17 and 18 need mowed and/or weed whacked. I think we can organize a work day and take care of most of it. I am free tommorow to do hole 3 at Mt Airy probably right before the ace fund if your interested Fred.

No it was taken out a while ago. But it sounded as if this guy was talking about a course that was around about 10 years ago. I believe Pioneer was.

They plan on bush hogging what they can get to starting tomorrow. I will be buying a couple of tee pads for them(rubber mats) tomorrow and they will install them, I think. Will keep you posted.

Attention: Workday scheduled this Saturday at 10am for Pride Park. If you have a gas powered weed eater,lopping shears,or anything that can be used to cut down limbs,trees etc. A chainsaw would be soooo sweet. If you don't have tools come anyway and Freddy boy a.k.a the Mexican will find something for you to do.

P.S I am gonna repost this every day so it shows up on the main forum page.

Phil, is it still on for tomorrow?
The parks is letting us use their chain saw.
If it rains tomorrow, I will pick up the chain saw and maybe we could meet on Sunday or Monday.

Paul Dumont was injured while working at Pride Park on Saturday. Because he is so tall(and handsome) he ran into a low hanging limb and cut and bruised his forhead pretty bad. It probably could have used some stitches but he toughed it out and just bandaged it up.
Phil Miller, Paul, Brian Kaplan and myself were the only ones to show up on Saturday.
We started by cleaning up hole #3(the low hanging tree by the basket was cleaned up). Paul and Brian cleaned up #4.
Phil cut the tree in the middle of the fairway on hole 18(great job Phil) and we cut honeysuckle and small trees so they can get in and bush hog the entire hole hopefully this week.
Unfortunately due to Pauls injury work was cut short and we(Paul, Brian Kaplan and myself, Phil had to leave early) went and had chinese instead.
Hole #17 needs the same thing done to it that we did on #18, otherwise the course looks pretty good, very playable.
It should be ready for the course challenge in two weeks.
If anyone is interested in helping out with #17, with enough people we could do it in a couple of hours, feel free to contact me anytime. I will probably be out there on Monday sometime. I still have the chainsaw.

Ahh, tis but a minor flesh wound. Good thing it was my head, nothing gets through there! :banghead2 I've received worse from my one eyed barber when he gets the shakes. Parks guy Lee was there early on as well. He left after getting stung.

Fred's right though, the course does look good. The parks ran a mower though some parts. #17 does still need attention though.
