I talked to parks today and they project April it will be open for business. They have started closing and locking parking lot gates when they leave for some strange reason so playing there after hours has become difficult.

Here's a response from the Park contact out there:

Liz,   Thank you for responding to my email. The grand opening date is scheduled for April 19,2008. We have wood chipped tee boxes currently but are looking to get concrete tee boxes eventually. It is a Nine hole Frisbee golf course that goes through the wooded area of the park. It would be great to have your organization out at the grand opening. Let me know if you have any other questions or if you need any other information from me. If you are able to help we can work out the details on the times that would be best for your organization to be out at the park.   Thanks, Mark Hesse

Okay, well, I emailed the park contact about the possibility of changing the Grand Opening date (wishing thinking shrug )
Here's the response:
Liz,   Unfortunately we will not be able to move the date for the grand opening. This date has already been published. If you have anyone who is not going to be at your tournament and they would be interested in coming out that day I would greatly appreciate it. If not I fully understand and good luck with your tournament.   Thanks, Mark Hesse

Would anyone who isn't planning on playing the Disc 'n Dat Bluegrass Open be willing to be there?  Any representation would be good at this point, please let me know, thanks!

To anyone interetested in the new Mason Sports Park:

Thanks for the interest in our new park we're opening on April 19th. We excited about the upcoming summer at the park and hope to host some tournaments over that time, and are interested in running a disc golf league. Disc Golf is an entirely new venture for us here at the City of Mason Parks and Recreation Department, so if you have any ideas of things you'd like to see, and any tips to help our tournaments and leagues run smoothly, please let me know. You can contact me at dburchett@masonoh.org. I look forward to your responses and talking with many of you soon.

Also, in the next week or so, I plan on adding pictures of our course to this site. Due to the current state of soggy weather, I havn't been able to make it out to the course, but as soon as things begin to dry up, they'll be posted.

Played it last night. Nice course. Hole 6 is right next to the water plant and chances of throwing a disc over the fence is there. Hole #8 as noted is tricky with the water. I think that it will eat a lot of discs and it would be nice to have a small net/collection area that could capture those missing discs. Otherwise, it may scare a lot away from a real chance of losing the disc. Any ideas?

That's a tough layup.
I barely cleared the hill and still was too close for comfort. That's a hole that demands a spotter.
Saw three in a row go in the drink behind me.

Yeah I hope it does not become a turnoff to players. First timers especially will get stung there. Just think they could redo that hole and keep it on the close side of the stream and then put a tee shot there like on 5 where you start right next to it.

I dont want to offend anyone...but comon guys. I went out to this park yesterday....threw three shots on that hole(#8)....all 3 of which landed within 35 feet of the basket...its just a soft flat shot. Not a lot too it. With the downhill, the hole plays like 300 feet TO THE BASKET. My wife was playing with me (she has played 3 times in her life....she threw a shot that landed 2/3 of the way down the hill....then laid up just short...and threw over...i dont think a hard hole will keep people from playing.

PERSONALLY i find this hole to be the SIGNATURE HOLE!! That hole is the most fun on the course. We dont want to make every course simple, or the sport wouldnt be interesting. When you have a course that only has 9 holes....its holes like this one that makes players think it is worthwhile playing.

Again...please dont take offense to this post....i am DEF not trying to stir things up....i just wanted to express how happy i was with the way the designer laid this course out....made a short 9 hole course very fun to play...big props!!

I was one of the people there on the first day it opened. When we played the course, hole 8 stood out. I fully agree that this is the signature hole! It may be wise to have a sign warning newer players about the hole, but otherwise leave it. They did a great job.

When I played it there was a stiff headwind. With that wide open field below, that will be a prevailing feature to that hole. I admit, it's a good design. I had never played it before, and was unfamiliar with the hole, and had no spotter.
This course sorely needs level tees. I tried to throw a turnover on #5 and stepped in the bucket on the tee. That gravel does not work. Could not get a good push when I needed it. As a result I played it very conservatively.

There are still plans to pour concrete... I'll get with the parks director and find out a timeline.
