I'm waiting reply from Boone County now. Even though Boone County Parks has been very supportive of disc golf, I urge no one to hold their breath here. Boone Woods baskets & re-design, for whatever reason, is one thing I'm not getting any information about.

I would implore everyone that has played Boone Woods or wants to play a re-design of Boone Woods to go to the following link:
http://www.egovlink.com/boonecountyky/action.asp?actionid=8656
and write the parks department and let them know that you would like to see this happen.

I know the majority of folks might not be from Boone County, so you can put your name and the address of Boone Woods, which is 6000 Veterens Way, Burlington, KY 41005, in the form. 

That is where you would like to play and chances are that is the area you might spend some money, either picking up a beverage or disc at a local store, grabbing a bite to eat at a restaurant or tavern, or filling the tank of your vehicle at a local gas station.  I believe that the two things go hand and hand.  Sure, there is a cost to getting new baskets and re-designing Boone Woods, but that will only make it a better destination spot for those to come play and help businesses around the park.

I know I'm the silly one that thinks if you write these people things may happen.  However, I do know that if you don't, it won't at all or anytime soon.  The disc golf community around here, as a whole, is a little louder than I am as one person.

I was thinking of trying to give out the above information and ask that everyone send their note in on the same date, at the same time.  I'll be thankful if you could just do it whenever you have the chance.

Yes...classic case of hurry up and wait...well..we've waited...now it's hurry up again time....no promises...but work should start soon.

I know that was kinda vague...but since we can't make any promises..we don't want to get your hopes up..but if all goes to plan..you should be playing the new layout in a few months.

Some new Innova baskets have been received by Boone County Parks. As far as where they are going and when that will be, not sure.

I'd be willing to volunteer some effort to make Boone a better course. My girlfriend and I play out there quite a bit and it would be nice to maximize the potential as best as possible out there. I'm looking forward to new baskets and some tee signs so that people don't have to wander around looking for the next tee.

Would also be interested in working on some new bridges for out there if that is a possibility. Something sturdy and large enough to get the mowers across the creek so that its not knee high grass.

I met with David Whitehouse from Boone County parks this morning and they want to do an opening ceremony for the new disc golf course the 1st week in October. They have started the restoration project on the creek and should be done at the end of September. We(Bob Herbert and I) have to make some final changes on the new design before tee pads can be installed. The course will play much longer(can you say rollers) than the original but quite a few holes will have multiple tee pads.

Boone county is looking for tee sign sponsors for the new Boone Woods course. The tee signs will be the same as the Idlewild signs and sponsorship is good for the life of the sign. $100.00 is the cost for sponsoring a tee sign. There are 15 left. So get your pals together and get your name on a sign.
Make checks out to: Boone County Fiscal Court, C/O Boone County Park, P O Box 566, Burlington, Ky 41005. Make sure you put what you want on the tee sign.

The old baskets will be regalvanized and used at other Boone county parks.

I will update here when I know more.

I know I'm not from that area but I used to go early to play Boone before heading to play Idlewild but now it sounds like I might look at Boone as much more than just a warm up course!
