Here is my final map. I will let you all analyze it. The red boundaries are set using Pickard and Big Creek as the north/south limits. The blue boundaries are set using Ewing and Big Creek as the north/south limits. I think I would use the red boundaries; you must include possibly the best course in the state, even if this means that the South would loose. Loosing with pride is not always bad.

The crosshair allows an east/west argument

Like I said before I work third shift and do nothing at work, I have a degree in mapping so why not.

Seriously?

Can I get my Grant back?

How about you chime in when you actually know what you're talking about.

Excellent, thanks...

Been putting in some practice @ WR lately. Driving to Granger & Perry a lot - so I sneak in my lunch breaks out there. Wish I didn't live on the opposite side of town as WR.

Looking @ Corey's map, it's definitely favoring the South side w/ Norwalk going in... :-P :lol:

North vs. South

Postby DLCdisc » Sat Dec 13, 2008 6:41 pm

I realize this is an old poll an old set of arguments, but I haven't been logged in very long. As an Ankeny resident, I guess you could call me a North side person. I just want to point out what several people hinted at and that is that DesMoines area in general has the best overall group of courses available within a short distance regardless of which side you live on. I have been to Bowling Green and Kansas City, and although both places were great and I will go back, DesMoines has the best variety of courses to choose from. We have big, small, tight, open, long, and short and sometimes all of the above in the same courses. It's been fun reading what you all think.
