Who do you need to contact to get it mowed? I spent 45 minutes today and only played 3 holes before giving up. The grass is over knee high. It shouldn't take 10 minutes to find a disc that is 40 ft short of the hole in this park. There is a tree branch down on hole 5 that hit the basket and damaged it. Several tees are covered in mud, making it difficult to find tees with no signs. (I still never found 18)

Water works "takes care" of their own park. They always try to charge us fees when we try to do events there so basically the club has abandoned the park. As you can see they don't do that good of a job to begin. I know Vick has went out time and time again to clear fish of the fairways and clean 3" of mud off the tee pads and I think he's done with it also.
Are you ready for the Challenge?

I'm not all that impressed with the maintenance either. It could be a great course for beginners, but like you were saying, by the time they mow, it needs to be baled.

There's an idea to increase maintenance funds... maybe even enough for map...

It pisses me off that the area across the bike path is always beautifully manicured and cleared. WTF is the deal? If they can keep that nice why don't they spend a little time once in awhile cleaning up the course?
