Its been a while since i last posted but its not like i haven’t been busy.
Theres 3 new 18 hole courses I’ve been working on, 2 are already in the ground ( Wilmore in south-west st Louis and Fort Zumwalt in Ofallon MO) and the 3rd is currently being installed at Logan College in Chesterfield.
My efforts with getting a disc golf course installed within the st louis city limits started nearly 20 years ago when I set up a temp course in Carondolet park and ran an event.
after all these years the city finally saw the light and the Wilmore course is up and running, Its a well manicured park with a JB / Sioux Passage feel.
The Fort Zumwalt park was installed last week for a 2 month soft opening, when the city of Ofallon parks and rec will pull the baskets once they begin installing the christmas tree lights for the winter wonderland.. The course will re-open for a grand opening in March of 2014, so they will be cleaning up the holes a lot better and installing Concrete tees over the winter.. If you play this course please understand that there will be a lot more work done before the course is officially opened, but your feed back is more than welcome.
Now on to the jewel of the 3,, Logan College in Chesterfield ( which I first started the disc golf course idea for in 2002) will rival any course in the world once its full completed.
I’ll go out on a limb and say this course will give Carrollton Park in Bridgeton and Foundation park in Centralia as the best PARK course out of the 51 I have been a part of designing and installing and the nearly 700 i have played. ( Ozark MOuntain Akitas Run and Spencer Davis still tops the list
but I may be too partial)
The magnificent course lay out covers about 60 acres of land, plays around 3 lakes and a creek. There are a nice mix of holes in the open, holes in the woods and plenty of elevation. Par on the course is looking at around 66 from the long tees to long pins with lots of course management needed to shoot under par. Short tees and shot pinswill play at around 7500 and will give more birdie chances for the average disc golfer.
Plans are for a soft opening in about 2 weeks with a grand opening later this fall.
I will add some pics and scorecards of all 3 course later this week so check back soon.
