That's good to hear! It does seem that it has potential to be a very good course, and it looks like it'll be a lot of fun to play on Saturday. So, I guess I'll have to give it a second chance to make a good first impression!!
(and bring a few extra discs!)
I get it now! This is Patrick's money making scheme! Tournament at a course that guarentees lost discs while ensuring he has plenty to sale! Brilliant!
Just kidding man. Although, you probably should have plenty to sale between rounds if the district doesn't mow.
I am planning to come to Joliet tomorrow(from Milwaukee) to hit up some courses and am unfamiliar with any of the courses and their current conditions. Are there any courses that are technically "CLOSED"? How many and which ones are flooded? Are there any courses in the area that are in good to decent condition?
Mike, the only course that is technically closed, and still unplayable, is Community Park in Channahon. West Park, I think, still has some holes that are a bit flooded (11, 3, and 5 - not sure if the water has gone down yet), but the remainder of our courses are in good condition. Our friend Thor has a tournament going this Sunday and Trinity Links DGC. If you can't hit the tournament, I recommend hitting Highland (Pilcher Park) or Shorewood Park.
Community Park is still closed & I doubt it will be open soon. The creek that runs through #1 & #2 is flooded #2's basket is under water. The water on the hill on #4 is at the bottom, so that's down a lot. Rain is in the forecast for Tuesday, so we'll wait & watch.
The water is receding nicely. I was able to see the castle blocks on the wall on #2. That tells me the wall withstood the storm, not like last time. I can use a hand Saturday morning, putting the bridge back coming from #12. Probably around 9:00am.
Well, congratulations to the incumbents and our new member advocate! Just wanted to say thank you, J-Town. Thanks for volunteering your time and effort to help make Joliet the best place to be a disc golfer!
