I've been working with the parks department in League City on a course proposal for one of their parks for most of this year. Things are looking very positive and the city is now making sure that the proposed design doesn't impact the wetlands in the park. Once that gets cleared up I expect we'll start clearing and fundraising for baskets.
The course will initially be a 9 hole course with long and short tees. The course will play along a small creek for four holes and then play five holes in the woods. Imagine a shorter TAT/Timberlane hybrid without the open holes and you'll get a good idea what the park has to offer. There is a possibility of expanding the course to 18 in the future when the park expands to the other side of the creek but for now it's going to be 9 holes. The final design is still being worked on but the proposal was well received and I hope we'll get started clearing holes in September.
Basket sponsorships will be available for $500 a hole. I'm working on the sponsorship package but if you're interested, please let me know. I've already had two sponsorships pledged and some other straight up donations pledged.
If you'd like to come walk the course with me and see what is in store, PM me and let me know. If you're on the southeast side of town and want to help out I'll be organizing workdays out there via the Bay Area Disc Golf group
on Facebook and here.
This park has huge potential for disc golf, especially if we can expand to 18 in the future. The plan for the additional 9 include playing alongside Clear Creek in one of it's most scenic sections
. Keep your fingers crossed that there are no wetland issues and we get the final approval to get things started soon!
