On the official work day, Sunday, providing the weather cooperates, we may rent a chipper for #16,#17. So disregard the "move dead wood away" from the list of things to do on #16,17. Can anyone recommend a good tool rental place? Brad in Loveland will probably be picking it up.

Well since i seem to be immune to the chemical in poison ivy oak sumac AND i brought it up. i suppose i can do most of the picking up dead crap on 16 - 17. Chipper would make it easy work .. id even chip in on the cost if need be. Lemme know.

 

PS  just a thought on the carrier ending tread marks on hole 2 tee pad.  maybe someone with a truck could take some fill back there and flatten it out ?

"Can anyone recommend a good tool rental place?"

I've heard tell that Nick Engle knows a good place to get tools. Don't know if they have a wood chipper or not though.

Steve Flint gave me a call, and it looks like we may be able to borrow one from Turtlecreek Township for $0. If that doesn't work out, then Nick's equipment/cost looks the best by far. Thanks Nick.

I took the 45 min drive up north to check out some new course (turtle creek, monroe, and gulley). All courses were great addiitions to the greater cincy disc golf world. I was at Gulley for a couple hours playin and takin some video. I was the only person there the whole time. You all need to get out and check it out. Be warned though.... watch out for the underbrush it will eat up your discs and legs. Oh and it helps to find discs if you take someone with you unlike me....

Remember always try to take a deuce!!!!!!!

The tractor & chipper will be there @ 8:30 am if anyone is wanting to get started earlier. Being Father's Day, I need to be out of there early afternoon. Dan, what hand tools are needed? Bolt cutters for the wire fence? Anything else?

I was at Gulley yesterday and the parks ran the Bobcat down the faiways on 16 and 17. It looks really good. They made a path about 10' wide. The Middletown crew was getting rid of the sharp stuff behind the baskets on 2,3, and 4.

Yeah, we didn't know what to do w/ the removed brush. It's in a pile in the corner of 4 fairway. Be out Friday to do some mowing and work on fence removal. Can move brush, where to? Where should fence scraps go? If anything I'll be out Sunday morn, we'll get her done then.

I went out there today and moved the pile of brush from behind hole 1. Also I pointed the signs in the right direction on about 10 of the holes. It was tough without a post hole digger. Anyone who is coming Sunday have a post hole digger?

I'll be out there early also, hopefully by 8:30. Will be working on the honeysuckle on the right side of hole 9, I have a tool to cut it down, but I'm also trying to get a machete of some kind.

I have a machete&nbsp;&nbsp; wouldn't it have been easier&nbsp; to just move the sign and not the whole post ? <br />

How in the world do you move a sign w/o a post hole digger? My ghetto kids would thrash a sign that easy to move. YES I have a post hole digger, it may need sharpened, and as hard as the ground is out there, we'll need water I assume. Atleast it would be ALOT easier to dig in mud instead of rockhard earth.

I've noticed some brush piles "out of play" is that where we should throw brush? Can we chip it Sunday? See y'all then.

Went out and played gulley; I really liked it. The gaps on several holes encourage you to be consistent with your shot (like 9's slight turnover gap.) Still a little rough around the edges (Bring on the cement teepads!) and losing a disc can be a nightmare (thorns here, there, and everywhere.) All in all the course's well-planned design heavily outweighs the fact that it's still a very new course. I imagine that by this time next year the course will have all of the amazing amenities to match this course's potential. I can't wait to use the Gulley Open next week as an excuse to go up and play the course again.

P.S. My forgiveness to the farmer whose plants are O.B. over the fence.

I guess I'm 'Chads buddy'.

Matthew, I've played the Gulley the last 3 weekends. To say the least, the course has evolved over that time span. The work you guys did on 16 and 17 is really starting to look good. The raised basket on 12 is a nice touch. The removal of some old fencing and a ton of briars was greatly needed. The only thing I can really complain about is the tractor tire ruts in #2 tee box..but I should have just asked for a shovel and rake Sunday and cleaned it up mayself....thus I can't complain because I had the opportunity to do something about it and just forgot about it. I was saddened that I was cutting the honeysuckles and thick vines out of the right side of #4 basket. Now my only strength of having a nice forehand shot parked under the basket is negated by everyone throwing a putter into the tree line and putting for deuce....O well...I guess that's better than having people swallowed alive by the inhospitable jungle that was there.

Has the PDGA reviewed their ruling on me not being allowed to carry a machete during sanctioned play? :)

I agree with you on #4 Lee. We are going to let some honeysuckle grow back on that right side, but we'll keep the thorns and vines down.

For anyone that wants to come to Gulley, I'll run a one time "Ace Fund" there this Tuesday Wednesday night. Ace money will roll over to the tourney's ace fund. We'll try to start at 6:30 PM.

Not sure how much you guys opened up #4, but if the basket was moved 5 or 10 feet out on the other side, the anhyzer (or hyzer) would be re-created....

Maybe I shouldn't say anything, I did ace that hole :smile
