Its nice to see how it is already getting broke in, ive noticed some of the weeds are getting knocked down surrounding some greens and the trails are looking to be put to good use. this course is is going to mature nicely.
as for my scores.............not so much
in ranking holes from hard to easy (potential bogey to birdie) IMHO: 9- 5- 3- 8- 6- 4- 10- 2- 7- 1-
thats for the white tees, and ive only played them 3 times
to answer the how its playing question; its plays like curved hallway rollercoaster ride!!

Wow! You guys did a great job at getting some stuff on discgolfcoursereview.
I've got the numbers from all of the distances somewhere on my computer. Both Red, White tees and A and B targets. Let me know who to email them to, so you fine fellas can get them up, too.
Seemed prettty cool that most of the "cons" listed were about the piece of land; i.e. "hilly", "real steep", "any room for 18", etc. We said from the get-go that the land was on a pretty weird-shaped hill. I guess that means the course is more "tiring" than "boring". ;D
I'm glad the design team got credit for avoiding redundancy, "fair" fairways, and the like. All in all, I hope folks are enjoying the course.
I talked to the arborist last week, and he said during the winter, he and the park staff will be working on a hole or two per week. Picking up dead stuff, clearing some shule back, etc. I expect the WCDGC will be giving them guidance on keeping what we call the "aerial fairway" clear. IMHO, some clearing, will serve to diminish the tick problem quite a bit. (although I have discovered that there is mathematical proportional ratio based on LowScore/NoTicks.)
Is there an info sheet about out club posted at Liberty like there is on the 18th hole at Crockett?? Just for fun, I drove by the Liberty course after we played yesterday on Superthingy Sunday and noticed there were half a dozen cars in the parking lot at the course!
I played at Liberty this morning and all the baskets are now in the "A" positions!!! MUCHO FUN! (though my score just shot up drastically!) OH, and you'll be glad to know the parks people have done a real nice job of capping off the unused pin placements to keep rain out!
Either I got lucky or my practice from the white tees paid off. I went back and did a quickie round from the reds after lunch and was waaay over! I'm all for starting from the reds next time too.
Gabby and I had a blast putting on hole 10! Gabby was pretty consistent on her 1 or 2 feet away putts if I placed her facing 90 degrees from the basket with her right shoulder in line to the basket. I found that if I was level with the basket I could do the same and make some pretty consistent putts without even looking at the target just like Gabs! I WAS further away though! ;D
I like this course, but it is so different from what I am used to. My best score so far has been +4 from the whites. My game significantly improved when I decided to leave all of my drivers behind, so I wouldn't be tempted to use them.
Finally.... Beat the course for the first time. This has been a difficult challenge, Leaving the course several times frustrated saying I'm never playing this course again only to find myself back there the next day. I do love the course because it is a challenge and you have to be very technical. But until the next time I go back I can feel like a rockstar for shooting 1 under from the red tees. Sad I know, but what can I say?
Everyone's been mentioning the "tick factor" at the adult course (Liberty). The first hole is probably in the worst shape. And that gives the feeling that the entire course is in bad shape. But, I've been playing out there quite a bit recently and it's not thaaaaat bad. If anyone has any pull, I'd say put all the baskets in the long positions so the foot traffic from the brave souls that DO still play out there keeps the potential summer growth down. It's actually a good time to practice there because the penalty for failure to keep it in the fairways is more pronounced. And it's shady. So.. don't be afraid! See you there.
