View Full Version : Update (April 9th 2008)

Eddie talked with the head of the parks department in Brandenburg about some of our ideas for the course. They agreed to replace all the tee signs and baskets that are damaged and plan to do it QUICKLY. They immediately submitted a purchase order request. They okayed the use of sand traps where ever we please. They’ve given us permission to use the land behind hole #5’s basket and #6’s tee pad for at a minimum of the next 10 to 15 years. There are already a few tee pads back there from the old course so we hope to reuse those.

They’re working HARD on getting the park cleaned up. They’ve started with the baseball fields and basket ball and tennis courts and will begin working on the course soon. The ONLY request they had from us (disc golfers) is that we attempt to raise some money to buy some trees and then help plant the trees around the parameter of the park and on the course. We need to make a good showing for this when the time comes.

So does that mean that the baskets that were damaged before are going to be replaced too?

Sounds like some large cities need to take a lesson from some small towns... :roll:

I'll donate a tree and help raise money.

I know there have been several questions about Meade/Olin so I thought I’d give an update. There are currently only 16 baskets there due to baskets missing on #5 and #13. Below is a list of changes we are still in the progress of negotiating. I’ve been out there just about every day laying holes. Eddie, Brad, and Butch are also looking at the course. A collaboration of our ideas will be the final design.

Hole #1 ~ ADD New Pin Placement (Old Pin Placement Remains as an Option)
Hole #3 ~ Add Sand Traps in Front and to the Left of Pin/Gravel Road O.B.
Hole #5 ~ Install New Basket and ADD O.B. Line Long of Pin
Hole #6 ~ Gravel Road O.B.
Hole #7 ~ New Pin Placement
Hole #13 ~ Install New Basket/New Pin Placement
Hole #15 ~ Install New Basket for Permanent Alt. Pin Placement Long and to the Left of Original
Hole #16 ~ New Tee Pad and Pin Placement
Hole #17 ~ New Tee Pad/Add Sand Traps (Old Tee Placement Remains)
Hole #18 ~ ADD Tee Pad/Elevate Pin (Old Tee Placement Remains)

what about the land behind 5 and 6 can we put a basket and a tee back there and make them par 4s :Please: :Please: . i love two good shots then putt

12-04-2008, 08:35 AM
We haven’t talked much about that yet. We want to get the course back in operation first then we’ll start back there. I’ve laid out a few holes back there but nothing is in stone yet.

As far as par fours go; the new placement on #1 will be a three and a half to four. #10 is STILL a par four. #15 (IF we go with my proposed pin position) will be a par four.

For some reason I missed the last couple of post here. Thanks for the update Jeremy!

I played a quick round at Meade Olin recently and saw the alt pad for hole 17. It's pretty sweet; really makes it a tough birdie hole! I didn't see any of the other alt pins or pads but I'll be looking for them next time.

How is the overall course progress so far?

01-03-2009, 05:21 PM
are there any plans to move some holes into the woods? i played there yesterday and was amazed at how wide open it is now. it would have brought a tear to my eyes but i was still hating the woods after the fun farm... :fiddle:

03-27-2009, 08:59 AM
How's the course coming along... I am looking for somewhere to play tomorrow and wondered if it was doing okay?

03-27-2009, 01:12 PM
Still two baskets missing. There has been a LOT bull dozer and dump truck traffic in the fairways. We don't want to put new baskets in until we're sure they won't get plowed back over.

03-27-2009, 05:09 PM
That make sense... thanks for the update.. Just post something when you think it is playable.. I miss playin' MO.

03-27-2009, 06:27 PM
And let us know if you need to do a work day. I'll be happy to help out however I can.

03-27-2009, 08:19 PM
Yeah can't wait to play this course for the first time...

I am in Brandenburg every other weekend because thats where my family lives. I was at the olin park course this past weekend.I didnt even know there was a course there until this month. It looks like they have done some work on the course around 5 and 6. There is a basket marked 2 but it is not for hole 2. It looks like it should be a 5 or 6. I couldnt for the life of me find hole 7. Is there a course map? It looks like a nice course.

04-21-2009, 03:46 PM
Yeah, hole #5 was hit by a bull dozer and we replaced it with a basket marked #2.

There is currently no map and most of the signs are still missing. I'd be glad to show you around the course though. I live about 10 minutes from the park and work about 2 minutes away (at Arch). Let me know if you want to hook up.

Thinkin' this might be my only possible tourney to play in this year so wuz wonderin' if the course has been changed up & what had been done exactly - last time I was out there I almost cried (the course wuz wiped out).
Let me know - JFro

06-06-2009, 09:13 PM
It's in much better shape! Currently #3 is MUCH easier as there are NO trees in the middle of the fairway like there was. #13 is the ONLY hole that is in a new position since last year. There may be a FEW temp changes to the course for the tourney but nothing set in stone.

looking great out there.you guys have done a super job can we keep the ring of fire for the tourny lol :whistle: :whistle: :whistle:

06-07-2009, 06:25 PM
Yeah...hole #7! Just kidding!

06-08-2009, 10:20 PM
Thanks for the update Jeremy - Is the new 13 same pad just different pin location? Let me know if your switching up any - think there will be a decent turn-out?

06-09-2009, 03:54 AM
Yeah...#13 is the same pad but there is a mando and it's a turnover now.

I expect about the same turnout we get every year. Somewhere in the 70-80 range.

06-10-2009, 07:06 PM
Thanks again Jeremy - hope to see you out there!
