I read about an Ace Race being held in Manhattan on 8/18.  Is this course open?
A day with disc golf always beats a day without disc golf.

No, it is not. It probably won't be open until June or July. They still have some work to do on the hiking trails. With construction traffic going in and out, they don't want to open the park yet.

Hello,
I am the athletic program coordinator with Manhattan Park District. I am contacting you in regards to implementing a fall disc golf program for our district. I want this program to serve as an introduction to the sport, where participants can learn basic fundamentals. I would like to first target a younger age group…possibly dividing the age group from 6-10 years old and then another group 11-16 years old.  I would like to hold this program on a Saturday or Sunday. I was thinking the 6-10 age groups from 1:00-2:00 pm then the older age group from 2:00-4:00 pm. Please contact me if you know anyone that could instruct this program. I need to know as soon as possible because our fall brochure hits the printer at the end of June.

Thank you for your time and attention,
Katie

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.

It's been a while since I've been on here. Glad you liked the course. The tee signs are now in the ground and they are very nice.

I think the preferred route is an anhyzer over the water into the gap. There is a mando on the main oak at the opening. From the landing zone it takes some creativity to get the 3. For power players there is a monster anhyzer gap up top. I did here a player parked it for a 2.

My ESP XL was found.  Thanks, I hope to get it back soon.
If that one was found, then I'm pretty darn sure my Xmas X Buzzz was found as well. ???  It has my name and number and an ace on the bottom.  If any one sees it, please grab it and let me know.  I always reward a returned disc.  Unless you never call.  Then you have problems!
