Pole #1 Project - It will be a reality in 2011! Finally :D

Postby Dale Jordal » Mon May 23, 2011 7:18 pm

After seveal years it is finally going to happen. The last piece of the puzzle came thru today :D . The volunteers are lined up, the equipment is all lined up, all the approvals and permits are in hand, and this afternoon I got a check to cover the retaining wall block, river rock, and trees. As soon as it dries out around pole 1 we can start work.

This was sketched up since 2007 (before basket 1 was even put up).

In addition to make this soggy area more aesthetically pleasing, it will make this pole much more challenging. It was a wide open duece pole before. However with OB just 35' from the basket on 3 sides it also could be a circle 4 real quick -or- a easy 3 if one chooses to lay up, and of course a 2 with a succesful drive. Should be a good pole were one has to make decissions, and a pole were we may see some score separation.

Instead of the field stone in the sketch we will be using the same style and color of retaining wall that we used on #7 Blue tee and #14 White tee. Shown below in the photo.

The plan is to also to use this retaining wall block to elevate #13 basket. Using this same block should tie all of these components of the Disc Golf Course together nicely.
