My name is Ryan Beasley and I am the person responsible for the Memorial Disc Golf Course.
I know, I know, I'm a terrible person and what was I thinking in designing a course with crossing fairways and potentially dangerous play. OK, I confess. HOWEVER! I have heard the cries of despair and injustice and you may be happy to know that I HAVE LISTENED TO THE PEOPLE!
We don't want any special treatment just because this is a "church" course. We have had a LOT of criticism about our little course, and rightly so. I have appreciated everyones reviews and thoughts, and because
of those, we got to work. As many of you read earlier on in this thread, we have been involved in a course overhaul. We've been working around the clock with Andi Young (DG Consultants), HFDS, and Birdshot to help MDGC reach it's full potential. Well I am proud to say that we are just about finished with the plastic surgery and she'll be good to go just in time for our Tournament on the 25th.
Here are some of the updates and new additions (as of 10.23.09):
We are now a 6 hole course with 6 alternate Tees
No more crossing fairways!!!
No more double and triple use Tees
Basket numbers installed
Tees clearly marked and painted
Next Tee stones installed
Baskets have been dug in
Practice putting green
Brand new course map with distances
