super short tees still?

Postby billnchristy » Wed Oct 12, 2011 3:01 pm

Is there still a set of obscenely short tees out there for kids?

Christy has/had mild whiplash from her car accident and we have been playing silly short course rehab rounds (like reds at Herman C Michael).

Whites are still there, but you need to really look for alot of them as the course isn't mowed on all 27 holes.
But if you have played there since the redesign earlier this year(when 8/9/10 got renumbered) they are in the same locations.

My son plays the whites, but as I recall:

#2 is nothing but a two foot rubber pad
Same for #8 and Alt-E (the Hobbit Hole)
We've never found #9, so we just picked a spot based on the signage

Except for #9, I believe that they all still had the markers in the ground last time we played, but some of the tees are a good bit away from the reds/blues. I do believe that the tee signs were pretty helpful in locating them.

Most of the white tees are just 2ft pieces of rubber matting or gravel.
The signs for several of the holes are not even the right signs and have not been changed to match the redesign.
Hole 9 (in the new design) is about 70 feet in front of the red tee as a gravel patch next to a tree
Most (but not all) still have a concrete cylinder marking one side(sometimes both) of the tee area.

We have a huge issue with kids/people throwing the tee markers away. I do not know why, but every time you play - you see them in the woods, in the creek, etc. We just nee to have a work day and re mark them with something besides stones. Most should be pretty evident. This is a brief description of how to find the white tees or about where they should be played from.

1 - 75 feet in front of red to the left near the road
2- 75 feet in front of red tee
3- 75 feet up and way to the right of the red tees near the bike path
4- 100 feet up and to the left of red tees near bike path
5 - when you finish 4's basket, walk down the trail to the right across the bike path - throw across the creek through a gap looking straight at the basket
6- forward and way left of the red tees (should be marked)
7- follow the trail behind 6's basket and go across the creek - in the flat area b/w the oak trees
8- turn left after crossing the creek, forward and right of the red tees near the silt fence
9 - right off the path walking from 8 to 9's basket 50 feet forward and right of the red pad
10- right next to the corner of the fence on the knoll right above the red tees
11- forward and left of the reds 50' near bike path
12 - forward and left of the red tees marked on the walking path
13 - forward and left of the big rock 50' or so
14 - forward and right near the woods and bike path
14a-left of the bike path - 50 feet in front of 14's white pad
14b - 50' up and to the right of the red pad near the power line road
14c - walk down the trail for the blue pad, thru the woods and to the right
14d - 50' forward and left of the red pad
14e - 75' forward and left of the red pad
14f - 40 feet forward and right of the red pad
14g - 30 feet forward and right of the red pad (mostly we just use the red pad for everything here)
14h - 20 feet forward of red
14i - 30 feet forward of red
15 - marked on walking path 100' in front of red pad near tree
16 - 50' in front of red pad, next to fence
17 - 75' forward and to the left of red, near the big oak marked with a mando arrow
18 ' - 100' forward and to left of red, on path coming outta the woods.

Hope that this helps.

You will love it, I'm still not sure why most people do not like it.

Either:
They have not played the normal layout out there in a couple of years and are basing on past experience or word of mouth
or
They get worked by the natural or crappy tee-pads (understandable)

Deerlick has some of the same issues (distance for most, bad rap) - both are some of the better disc golf courses in the metro area for variety and challenge. Deerlick looks great and they have done a great job with some of the natural tees out there.
