West Park Tee Boxes
« on: June 28, 2010, 07:37:05 PM »
Has there been any talk of adding concrete tee boxes out at West park? I was playing on Sunday when the storms came through and ended up tweaking my back after the storms because of the mud in the tee boxes. I have never seen the stream so over its banks, it pretty much was engulfing the holes along it, like # 3 and 4.

That would be an excellent idea. Westpark needs tee boxes badly, especially since it had the most traffic of any course in the area.

I think that most players on this forum would prefer to finish Highland (and take a much deserved break) before considering tee boxes for Westpark.

That being said, I can make a great case for putting in tee boxes at West whether you like the course or not. Obviously, the park needs them. Hole 8 comes to mind........it's uncomfortable doing any kind of run up even in good weather. And, for those of you who don't care about West, having concrete tees there will keep down the traffic at your other favorite courses.

For my part, just like Highland, I cannot do any of the back breaking labor required, but I'm happy to donate some funds toward tees at Westpark. But let's give the J-town boys a rest before asking anyone to tackle Westpark. They deserve it!

West Park has erosions issues that need to be addressed before that happens.  Highland is, also, showing the same signs of erosion if we are not careful; aside from people trimming and destroying trees and bushes because they hit them a few times and get pissed because they can't deuce the hole.  What happened to being excited about new challenging courses and letting them grow into the course the designers imagined?  I don't hear of PGA players going out and trimming courses to their liking.  They practice daily and perfect their game.  This goes out to all you whiners.  The ones that never blame themselves, only the game or the course.  Save your temper-tantrums for your mommy.  Have a little respect for the people that are still trying to enjoy this game.

WELL SAID DEAN!!  I played a round once with a pro player, he hit a small tree twice on an approach, reached in his bag and pulled out a folding saw and cut the tree down.  I've watched hole 20 at Mokena go from a well protected basket to one that's wide open.  For those that want to play where there's no tress, take up ball golf.
