I spoke to a few more people at the park district today trying to get the fairways mowed wider. They couldn't give me any guarantees, but I'm supposed to hear back from them tomorrow, and hopefully, I'll have some news for all of you. It is a great course, though very tough. Obviously, it doesn't need the tall grass to make it harder, nor is that an acceptable obstacle, as it just leads to lost discs. I explained this to the park district, and I think they understood. All I can do is keep following up with them.
I'm really hoping they get it done. This could be a great tournament and a great up and coming course. And everyone I've talked to at the park district is quality people who really want the course to blossom into a championship level course. They have plans for new tee boxes, and pro tees among other things. So I'm hoping for the best.
