Eagle Ridge in Oswego
« on: December 07, 2009, 10:47:38 AM »
Eagle Ridge Longs are set in Stone!
30 days from first phone call to Mr. Mike Fee making this happen.  Thanks to the grounds Crew.

The 14th of November I called together and organized a walk through with John Tiffany to mark out  the longs.  The last club meeting I brought up that I wanted to move forward with this project and push for placing stone immediately.  The subject was pushed and a committee was formed.  Delay in forward progress so I pulled the trigger.  Communication with the Park District gave me no time to sit on this.  Mike Fee made it clear that if we wanted to move forward now was the time due to man power availability and bad weather coming soon.  Like to thank again Mr. Mike Fee for pushing forward and surgically placing the stone on all 17 long placements (#9 long in place already).  The ground crew is amazing and how they did all that work without ripping up the course is beyond my understanding.  Oswego Park District continues to improve the Eagle Ridge Park and I as a FVMDGC member appreciate all that they do.  Side note the ball started rolling with this project October 26th when I called Tom Betsinger and Mike Fee to ask if we could move forward with the longs.




Members in attendance:  John Tiffany, Blaine Schepp, Aaron Scott, Mike Krupicka, Gary Camp, Jason Poole,

All long locations stay the same except the following:

Hole #1 shortend 15' and slightly closer to scrub to the track side.

Hole #3 35' longer

Hole #4 15 ' longer

Hole #8 (west)right 40' same distance

Hole #11 7' longer

Hole #12 20' (south)left and 10 feet longer

Hole #14 50' longer

I think you need to reconsider #2 & #10, also #17 & #18.
There's going to be a lot of Congestion there during tournaments, respect will go to one group over the other when they tee off, not to mention waiting to finish the hole.
I also noticed #12 & #14 I assume shrubs will be cleared to give lines for drives?
What I like about Oswego is the natural setting & the more things you remove you delete the rustic natural look.
I most disagree with 2,& 10, 17, & 18. You might waht to give this some attention before concrete tees.
Of course this is my opinion.
Do you have Mike Fees #? I wnat to do some work out there & need to check with him.

I just walked with the people that placed the tees (no clue on my part).  Tom Betsinger had called us to inform us someone was cutting down trees (I've seen no evidence of this).  He wants us to mention again at our club meeting that we as a club are not to alter the course.  I don't know what kind of work you are thinking of doing but I know you have a "in" with Mike Fee.  Can you let Blaine know what Mike Fee is willing to let you do if you plan on doing anything?  I just want to be prepared if I get another call from the park district.

Blaine Schepp cell 630-913-4357

Mike Fee 630-554-4434

Thank you,

What I'd like to do is treated wood steps from #14 to #15's tee. I bounced that off someone, maybe Blain. I would like to make them at Parks shop. I want to make them solid so they don't erode.
I was told the Park had the material. My focus is still Channahon, I'm just trying to help y'all.
If I'm out of bounds let me know.

Those steps are already made.  The rebar & steps were out by 14's hill for awhile.  I don't know if John Tiffany or Mike Fee took them for safe keeping (one of them did),  They are the same steps as #12 going to #13.

Those steps are not made!
It might be easiest to check with Blaine.

After 5 rounds at Eagle Ridge Flash finally made a bogey on hole #14. Playing bogey free for 1 round at the Eagle is hard. Great shooting Joe!

        I beat Flash 2 holes in a row though!
