Just to update everyone..., Here is a quote from our Winton Woods Park connection after the June 29 meeting: "Our staff is continuing its review of the proposed changes. We have been refining the plan for the horse trail realignment to see if it will work with your proposed layout. Please be patient as we review the proposal."



Does anyone have any updates on the future of Winton Woods?   The place has been packed lately and will stay that way all summer

All we can do is guess.
"Please be patient as we review the proposal."
We have heard nothing. All I can guess is that the budget's tight and they need to realign the horse trail first.

They know; that's why they want to redo it in the first place.
Safety is their main concern. The course was designed before there were longer-flying discs.

The park district declared war on honeysuckle, which is a very invasive species that threatens to take over the park.

It has always amazed me that they don't even put pop machines in at the course. The baseball and soccer crowds are always huge too.

When they have the Glow events, it is $5 to play. What do you get for that money? Glow Stick? Right to play?
Just curious. Are there any after event get togethers there afterwards?

I had seen them posted here last year but not this one.
I contacted hamilton county parks and jhilbert@greatparks.org is the contact.
She seems to be the one that runs it. Another coming up July 31 9pm.
Go to GreatParks.org

I received an e-mail from the Winton Woods park guys. They are once again talking about re-designing the course. After receiving and evaluating/tabulating over 100 completed surveys by Winton Woods disc golfers they want to leave 9 baskets in their old locations, make a short front nine and a new, long back nine. Below is part of the actual e-mail: ================================================================================ ·

Provide new concrete tees and concrete basket pads for all 18 holes. · Provide new signs for all 18 holes. · Provide tree planting and seeding for all 18 holes. Per the cost estimate below, please provide a realistic idea of areas where the disc golf community could offset some of these costs with in-kind donations or volunteer labor. These costs are based on previously bid projects with the Park District and will be used for estimating purposes throughout this process. Skilled craft work such as concrete finishing and power tool or equipment work such as selective clearing would need to be performed by contractor. For later discussions, some items may be completed with assistance from Park District staff.

=======================================================================================================

Please add your name to this list if you can volunteer or contribute financially.

Bob, have you convinced them not to put concrete around the baskets? I'm in for time and money if they don't do that to the course. That is just a bad idea.

I can donate my time for sure. and I agree with Fred about trying to convince them to forgo the asphalt around the baskets, was an old and bad idea.

Here is an email I received last week from Winton Woods park guy Todd Palmeter:
==================================================================================

Bob,

After meeting with additional staff, we generated the following comments on the proposed layout:

1. The existing gravel service road from McKelvey Road to the horse trail is to remain. Revise the layout to avoid playing across the service road.

2. The boundary line has been revised due to horse trail construction limits. Revise the layout accordingly.

3. Maintain a 100’ minimum buffer between the horse trail and disc golf. Revise the layout accordingly.

These comments are shown on the attached plan in yellow. It also needs to be noted that all proposed layouts are subject to change based on evaluation of natural areas and development of a tree preservation plan by HCPD.

Todd
==================================================================

I emailed several club members the accompanying .pdf proposal Todd referred to.
I do not know how to attach it here.

-Bob Herbert

That looks pretty awesome, thanks for taking the time to work with the parks on this. No more 16-under rounds on that course ...

Ok, so where is that piece of land located in reference to the existing course?

It's the same piece of land, with some of the area around it annexed to make it bigger. The black lines in the pictures represent where the holes are currently located.

So would this mean they shut down Winton Woods Course for several months or so and redo the existing course?
Would they add back any green life and trees that have been butchered away?

Yeah that is what I expected :-)
So the last I saw was drawings to change the existing course.
I thought I had read they had property across the street to build a new one.

We can all help push this thing along by sending a nice email to Hamilton county parks. Thank them for allowing to have Disc Golf in their Parks and suggest that they work to improve their courses.

Hamilton County
Parks Department

Email: information@greatparks.org

the more feedback they receive the more they may be inclined to work with us and take care of business.
