Worked on hole E yesterday.
If you’re out there, please take a minute to throw some debris off the fairway.

F, G and H got much more defined.
Buckets are there but no posts yet.
Added a couple warning signs to the pedestrian trails that cross 5 & 6. Need to order more.
Thanks to Jim F, Greg K, Rick E, and Ryan C for some serious grunt work!!!

Cleaned up G and H and set the buckets in place. Also added tee stakes for better visibility..

The hyzer version of Hole F with the OB rock wall is now an anhyzer shot along a ridge that has a roll-away green on both sides. I moved the pink ribbons to define the new line and set the bucket on a dead tree stump.

PLEASE go play them and post up your thoughts/comments/criticism. Feel free to drag debris piles that you land in or near.

If the purchase requisition gets approved by the town, we will be planting 9 more Discatchers in the spring !!!!

Going forward, this will be the numbering scheme for the 18 hole layout.
The Original 9 hole layout will be 1-5 then 15-18
I sent edits into uDisc and they should be approved within a day or so
