Yes, what Mr B said.

You can find the full 18 map on the UDisc app, which will help guide you around the course. The map at the practice basket kiosk has a QR code that links to this map https://discap.net/wp-content/uploads/2 ... june20.jpg if you prefer that. There are some arrows that point you toward the next tee but the arrow after hole 5 needs to be rotated to the right. It currently points toward 15, which was how you played the orginal 9 hole layout. Signs and tee pads are upcoming.

Other things that you can do to help out:
Level tee areas. Normally a shovel and rake will do but there are some that will need root/rock removal so a pickax would help.
Drag away brush that's been cut down. This can be done as you play or you can pick a fairway and focus on that.

Work that anyone can do
1 - Rake the gravel OFF the tee area.
5 - Cut out the root and level a 5x10' patch at the tee, use the two extra pallets to fix the bridge.
6 - Level a 5x10' patch at the tee.
10 - Remove stumps in the area, widen the trail leading to the tee
12 - Level a 5x10' patch
13 - Level a 5x10' patch, remove a couple trees in the tee area.
14 - Level a 5x10' patch, cut the tree that's hanging overhead

Work I'm planning to do
1 - Cut some brush along the left side, especially at the basket
4 - Cut some brush to the left and right at the opening so the town will mow it wider.
11 - Open up the right side line all the way to the basket.
12 - Lopper work along the left side so the basket is easier to see.
14 - Clear brush on the right side near the basket.

The bushes behind 6 and 8 got trimmed back to create a more circular green.
The widow maker on 9 is down and some pole saw work was done.

I’ll bring tools Sunday and we can work afterwards.
