Course is OPEN!!! This according to the Manhattan Park Distrist website. I went out a few days back and checked it out for the first time. I really enjoyed it. I did put two in the drink, so if anybody finds them... name and # on them. Reward offered. The ONLY thing I'd reccomend is to have the course maps show BOTH baskets. The maps available at the board have red baskets only. Good for us, but there was a guy out there with one disc and two dogs. I had to explain to him that he might have more fun playing the silver baskets. I guess the problem will go away once the signs go up. The round tees are AWESOME! So many options, all courses should have them. BTW, what is the preferred route for red #5? All I can see to do is straight across the water (like west) with a little turn at the end. Essentially just trying to get an open approach. That is one tough hole.
Eric Fite v. Tafe Hemler / 1st rd. @ West Park; 9 AM tomorrow. Spectators welcome, but... If you mess with me or my round, your corpse will be thrown out onto I-80 after I'm done killing you!
Guess I should throw myself onto 80! "Fox Valley is dead. Long live Fox Valley!" Eric beat me, 60 to 66. I even wore my new Deucebag shirt! Bahhh!!! Hard to compete against the BEST pre-lim round out of our pool. Eric was on fire. He even deuced #12!
Two other names worth mentioning, and watching; Michael "The Machine" Austin; a local Masters player who is shooting quite well and, Kyle Maute; Phenix Disc Sports owner, J-town supporter and former local resident, after a few years off as a result of serious back problems, finally back to playing full rounds of 18, and at the USDGC no less! BTW, after day one, one behind and playing with Cam Todd.
